Dancing With the Stars Boots Michael Bolton

by at . Comments

If Office Space quotes have told us anything, it's that for our money, it does not get much better than when Michael Bolton sings "When a Man Loves a Woman."

It gets way better than watching Michael Bolton dance, though.

Mike got the boot from Dancing With the Stars Tuesday night after turning in a 12 (12!) Monday. Even with DWTS' unpredictability, there was no way he'd last.

Michael Bolton was sent to the doghouse by voters. For good.

Before we learned the bottom two - Bolton and The Situation - Brooke Burke talked to Michael about his hilariously bad jive. The best route would have been to joke about it, but he called judge Bruno Toniolo "inappropriate and disrespectful."

Come on, Mike. That's what Bruno does. If you look like (pardon the Office Space reference again) a no-talent ass clown, he will say so. Just run with it, man.

No need to act like a stoically-calm serial killer up there. We're kinda creeped.

After undeservingly landing in the bottom two last week, Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer were the first to learn they were safe after Monday's performances.

Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas are safe, as are Mark Ballas and Bristol Palin, whose mom may or may not have been booed on Dancing With the Stars.

Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani are also safe "apart from some leg hairs." Of course, Monday's top scorers Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough are fine too.

Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya are safe, Margaret Cho and Louis Van Amstel are too, Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke. Brandy and Maks are off the hook.

Bolton followed fellow middle aged hunk David Hasselhoff out the door. It's probably for the best. There was no time, love or tenderness about that jive.

Do you agree with America's decision to pack Mike's bags? Who are you rooting for on DWTS now with the Hoff and Bolton both gone?


I love Michael as a singer but he wasn't a good dancer. BUT - Bruno was brutal. I like Bruno but I certainly didn't like how he acted. I feel the judges' job is to give each dancer helpful criticisms, not destroy them as Simon did on American Idol. I hated how Simon acted and refused to watch the show. He destroyed these young people. Len is also brutal at times and I don't think that is necessary. If dancing with the stars allows their judges to become like Simon, I will no longer watch it. I felt very badly for Michael and I think Bruno and the show need to applogize for Bruno's behavior. If the show doesn't insist that Bruno appologize then they are supporting bad behavior of their judges.


Stop crying Michael.You can't dance.Did the huff go nuts when he was booted week one? It should have been you on the first week.


Michael Bolton did not dance well. That is all Bruno had to say. Instead he flew into a rage and berated him as if a major sin had been committed. Bruno should apologize to the viewing audience. He lacks the competence to be an effective evaluator.


The disrespect of the judges on DWTS is what they are paid to do?
Bruno is judging an first time dancer as he would a pro. I guess he doesn't know the difference. Bruno's comments only showed his lack of respect for anyone. He should stay in his seat, and judge fairly. He has shown what an ass he can be. He didn't have to like Michaels rendetion of this dance, I know I didn't, but I would have been a little kinder. He didn't judge, he just showed everyone, his nasty side.


Sham ,sham on Bruno


Get over your friggin self Michael Bolton, we certainly have long long ago. Go find Kate,she can't dance either.


michael is a class act and does not deserve the comments made by the judges or by this article. that is just unnecessary and cruel. your fans love and support you always, michael.


I can't believe Chelsea had the audacity to put Michael Bolton (or anyone) in a DOG HOUSE! I realize she is young, but even my kids know the level of entertainer he has been and were shocked at the dog house and her attitude toward him. I can't believe the judges did not reprimand HER for that move! I honestly don't want to see Chelsea return for at least one season.


Michael,there was only going to be *one winner of the trophy on DWTS. You got out early without having to endure the weekly insults that question the talents of your performances. I am so glad that we all were given the opportunity to see you cut a rug.
Your music will always have a place in my heart, love you, love your music. Time,Love, and Tenderness!!


I hate to be mean but Michael Bolton can't dance and for him to tell Bruno that he was disrespectful is ridiculous. Bolton disrepected himself when he got down on all fours, with a dog bone in his mouth and crawled out of a dog house. Pretty pathetic if you ask me. I'm glad he's gone, WHATEVER!


Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
