‘DWTS’ Viewers Reeling After Shocking Heather Morris Elimination
In what some are calling the "most shocking elimination in Dancing With the Stars history," Heather Morris was sent home Monday night (April 24)... after receiving a perfect score from the judges, no less.
Following an injury, Maksim Chmerkovskiy rejoined Morris for a sizzling rumba set to TLC's "Waterfalls," where the pair dazzled the crowd and judges alike with a sensually-charged, stunning performance, earning them the first 40 out of 40 score of the season.
Unfortunately, perfection wasn't enough to save Morris who, by the end of the evening, found herself in risk of elimination alongside Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan and was ultimately booted off as the audience booed in disapproval.
Speaking with hosts Erin Andrews and Tom Bergeron afterwards, the Glee alum recalled her time on the show with bittersweet grace, saying, "I'm okay, it’s a hard competition, and I'm really happy that I got to do what I got to do. It was really fun."
