Needham's Aly Raisman and her partner Mark Ballas are safe after the third round of performances on "Dancing With the Stars." Country superstar Wynonna Judd and partner Tony Dovolani weren't so lucky after the prom-themed week, and the two were sent home.
Raisman and Ballas earned 23 points for a Viennese Waltz that opened Monday night's show. The couple proved to be good sports after judge Len Goodman played an April Fool's Day prank on them, saying that he wasn't impressed.
"Well you know Aly, up until tonight I've been really impressed by your dancing. Not so much tonight if I must -- April Fools!" Goodman said.
Judd and Dovolani's samba garnered the pair the lowest score of the night (15 points), which combined with viewer votes, sent them home. Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess were also in the bottom two after an 18-point cha-cha.
Are you surprised by the elimination? Glad to see Raisman returning next week? Let us know in the comments!
