"Dancing With the Stars" Results

By admin Published: May 5, 2009

I don't get many things right, but I was pretty close to this one. After the jump. ...

In my post last night, I feared that Ty Murray had a fan base that might carry him past Lil' Kim, even though she was one of four dancers who demonstrated a clear ability to win (along with Gilles, Melissa and Shawn) -- and Ty just wasn't.

My stomach did a jump tonight when the last two stars onstage were Ty and Kim, and my heart sank when it turned out Kim was going home. One of the judges last night said something about the difference between likability and ability, and it's clear that Ty had more of the former than the latter. But it's still troubling that he would survive, since Lil' Kim was quite likable, too. But Ty obviously had a lot of support, since he was 6 points behind Kim on the judges' totals Monday night and still managed to survive. But that's TV democracy, as weird and capricious as regular democracy.
