Dancing With The Stars eliminated October 9 2017


Derek Fisher and Sharna Burgess were the third pair to be sent home from Season 25 of “Dancing With The Stars” on Monday. They received the fewest number of votes combined from last week and this Monday’s shows. See the video below of their elimination.

In addition to Fisher and Burgess, Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd were in the bottom two. Fisher received 21 out of 30 points last week after his cha-cha-cha to DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s “The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.” He faired slightly better than the previous week, during which he received 19 points on both Ballroom and Latin nights.

On Monday’s “Most Memorable Year” night, Fisher and Burgess did a jazz routine to Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up.” About the performance, Len Goodman said, “It was upbeat. It was uplifting. And for me, it was your best dance.” Bruno Tonioli liked the dance, too. And Carrie Ann Inaba said, “I love [its] celebration of life.” For his last dance performance, Fisher received a total of 23 out of a possible 30 points.

Fisher’s time on “Dancing With The Stars” showed improvement from week to week. As noted, he received 19 out of 30 for his first three performances and 21 points before Monday’s routine. While the scores were essentially the same, right before the buzzer the former basketball star posted his highest score. But even that wasn’t enough of a slam dunk to save him.

Fisher and Burgess were the third dancing pair to be voted off. As Gossip Cop previously reported, Debbie Gibson and Alan Bersten were eliminated from “Dancing With The Stars” two weeks ago. Before them, Barbara Corcoran and Keo Motsepe were the first booted from the competition show.
