Despite having the lowest score this week, celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito survives elimination due to Misty May-Treanor's sudden exit.
Misty May-Treanor's early departure from "Dancing with the Stars" eventually brings great news to other competing celebrities on the dancing competition show. On Tuesday, October 7, it was revealed that no one would be cut out from the reality show, giving Rocco DiSpirito a chance to redeem himself next week.
Scoring the lowest score after his Viennese waltz performance, the celebrity chef was given a second chance since May-Treanor has chosen to walk out from the competition to repair her Achilles' tendon which was torn during dancing practice. Next week, on October 13, DiSpirito will join other remaining contenders, Brooke Burke, Lance Bass, Maurice Green, Warren Sapp, Toni Braxton, Susan Lucci, Cody Linley, and Cloris Leachman, to once again take the dancing floor with either Samba or Tango.
Shifted to 8/7c to make room for the presidential debate at 9/8c, the result show on Tuesday night also saw a performance from Jennifer Hudson. On the show, she sang her debut single "Spotlight" while Julianne Hough and her brother, Derek Hough, performed a dance. The more than three minutes performance of the Academy Award-winning actress can be watched in a player below.
