It’s Latin Night, DANCMSTRs! The 12 couples will dance the samba, rumba, paso doble, or jive on tonight’s week 2 performance show…which is also the results show. One pair will be eliminated based on last week’s voting results. It will be weird. No filler segments? No smalltalk interviews? No one clubbing me over the head to get me to shop at Macy’s? I’m not sure I can handle this!

I’ll update this post with the results as soon as the elimination happens. UPDATE: And the eliminated couple is…

Keyshawn Johnson and Sharna Burgess were the first pair eliminated from season 17.

Okay, so he wasn’t a great dancer, but I’m still shocked! Football players have never NOT done really well on this show, at least in terms of the viewer votes. And he nearly broke into tears tonight while raving about how Sharna nudged him into buying into this whole DWTS thing despite his initial hesitation! Oh, well.

Bill Nye is safe, everyone! Perhaps that’s what this season will really be about, week to week!
