"Dancing With the Stars: All Stars" narrowed down the competition to just five couples Tuesday night, saying farewell to two stars in the process.
We started with the (unsurprising) elimination of Kirstie Alley and Maks Chmerkovskiy, who went into the double elimination with the lowest score on the leaderboard.
That ought to have given them time to prepare their farewells, as Alley graciously told press Tuesday after the elimination, "I'm so glad I did it, and it was a great run," according to Entertainment Weekly. "You know, Maks tried his hardest, but come on. The bottom line is, there's extraordinary dancers on here ... From the time I saw this cast I was slightly flipping out, and rightfully so."
The 61-year-old actress is ready for the newly found downtime now that she's done with "DWTS," and she said that she plans to spend the next 48 hours indulging in a marathon of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and "Criminal Minds." Joked Chmerkovskiy, "she's trying to find the best way to kill me and get away with it on 'Law & Order.'"
But the other couple sent home last night, Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd, was more surprising, as Marini himself conceded talking to press.
"This is probably for a lot of people, maybe a little shocking," he said. "It's a very good show. They know how to make drama, and it's good."
What do you think - were you surprised to see Gilles go home? Who do you think is edging out the rest of the competition to take the Mirror-Ball Trophy?
ths is a fvr no bucks.
It's not about dancing....or stars....or popularity. It's about ABC making money. They invited back the people that they thought would interest the most viewers. It's all about ratings. I'm guessing some of their most watched shows were when Bristol Palin and Kirstie Alley were on the first time. I'm sure there were other former 'stars' they would rather have had come back, but they couldn't or wouldn't. Some of us are mad about who's been kicked off and say we won't watch again......but here we are commenting like crazy on here. It's a good show if it makes us get involved.
black tight jeans...sure i have a big ass..but the jacket kind of camo's the butt...high boots. not too shabby for the old girl.

the daily drudge of this show.
I don't get Emmit's popularity, he's ok. He's not that great a dancer, yet I have a sense he's going to win...that would be too bad.
I agree Emmit should of gone home. The girls did all the dancing and he just stood there shaking.
I'm glad Gille went home. Was sick and tired of his whining every week. Shawn and Melissa need to go next. I hope Kelly/Val or Apollo/Vodka(Smirnoff) win.
I think Emmet should have gone home last night. Gilles is/was much better.
Gilles is much better than Emmitt. This is the problem with the public voting, it becomes a popularity contest NOT a dancing contest. I am a BIG Emmitt but his best moves are behind him!
This is not about dancing skill; it is about popularity. Kirstie should have never been on past the 1st show, nevermind invited back a second time. Gilles was talented and handsome and touching his partner shouldn't even come into it. Ridiculous! Emmet is good but also a former football player. I wish this show were really about DWTS!
she's dying to get in his pants.
Gilles constantly kissing and touching Peta was over the top. It was uncomfortable to watch and I felt for his wife. I honestly think that's why he's gone. His wife must be VERY understanding. Thank goodness he finally acknowledged her at the end. She had to watch more 'hands on' behavior than any wife should ever have to see!!
I predict Melissa and Tony. It's who the judges want.
We should all quit watching the plug in drug and get off our a%%%% and exercise during the time we watch. Maybe take up dancing. Who knows what positive effect that would have on all of us.
I am a huge fan of Maks, so obviously I'm bummed to see him go. However, it definitely was not a surprise that he's gone. Kirstie is far below the other stars' ability. I'm really glad Gilles is gone... I don't even know who he is??
I just hope that Kelly and Val when... and then get married and have babies! :D
Hated to see Kirstie go, although I know it was past time. Everyone else is so talented. That Giles left is no great loss in my book, but he and Peta were great together. I think Kelly will go next, but any of those remaining could be the winner. They are all talented with great pros to teach them. I agree with Jersey Pete about Derek. Yes, he is an amazing dancer and choreographer, but he always gets partners who have a dancing background it seems. He never gets the strange partners that Tony and Louie get stuck with. I bet that's in his contract somehow. He is so popular, and brings in fans of his own, so why wouldn't the show want to keep him till the end if possible.
Gilles is eliminated but Emmet is still there? I can't believe it!
I I live in New York and I did not see the last 2 mondays of DWTS, they were not broadcasted in the East Cost. The only thing I saw was a rerun of a previous episode. What happened? I am a loyal viewer and fan of the show. I feel cheated. Please tell me what happened? I am so disappointed I did not see November 5th neither November 12th.
Please e-mail me. Thank. Would you rerun it?
Wifey and I love Shawn & Kirstie, though never expected Kirstie to get this far. Shawn ain't smug; she's a sweetheart. Kirstie is pure class. My favorite pro is Kym Johnson. She rocks my world.
Kirstie Alley should have been eliminated weeks ago! It must have been the scientology group that kept her in. Giles was a surprise.
I can't believe Gille and Peta are gone and idiot Melissa is still on there not to mention Kelly. She looks like a zommbie, no smiles, just stands there. I love Kirstie and sorry to see her go also. And Melissa, just because you were on Bachelor doesn't make you an expert on the subject. Don't give Cheryl any pointers...remember you were jilted so apparently you don't know how to pick them so how are you going to weed her suitors out..please give us a break..i wished you would have gone home last night
Shawn should be eliminated because she's smug and relies heavily on gymnastics routines in every dance. I'm totally over her. She does get the routines learned but she's so dismissive of the other participants.Plus, why does Derek get all the "stars" with some ability? I adore him but he doesn't get the partners who have 2 left feet or no hope of finishing in the top tier. Not fair to other pros.
so true they have turned Dancing into a circus act! judges should be ashamed of their high scores.
I"m done with DTWS if GIlle and Maks are done for the season. No point.
What are you talking about? Shawn is very humble and shy. What you think is dismissive and smug is nothing more than shyness. Have you read or seen anything beyond this show and the editing of those small clips? If you did you would find out that Shawn is really homesick and she also really clicked with Sabrina and was really upset when Sabrina left. She is also really worried about Derek. Shawn is not Hollywood and she is out there by herself while her family is back in Iowa. Shawn is this young girl from Iowa – with small town values. Who values hardwork and family. She is pretty much letting Derek call the shots and she is putting in the work despite her injury to perform her best. She is loyal to Derek and trusting his judgement. She is performing flawlessly. She she adds some gymnastics every once and a while but she also can dance perfectly without them. She is the whole package!
