Video: Former WWE star Chris Jericho on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Episode 3
Chris Jericho’s stint on “Dancing with the Stars’ appeared to be in serious jeopardy this week, but the former WWE star survived Tuesday night’s elimination show and will keep on dancing.
Jericho and partner Cheryl Burke were one of the two remaining couples who had yet to be told that they were safe and would continue on the show. In the end, it was Wendy Williams (apparently she has a talk show) and her partner Tony Dovolani (who was Stacy Keibler’s partner several years ago on DWTS) who were cut.
After the show, Jericho tweeted: "Big false finish on DWTS tonight, but I kicked out at two and a half! Ready for the big babyface comeback next week."
Jericho and Burke got a score of 21 (three sevens) from the judges for their rumba performance to the Beatles’ Let it Be” on Monday’s show. That put them in a three-way tie for fifth (out of 10 couples) for the night.
The theme of this episode was for the celebrities to create a dance that tells a personal story. Jericho – who performed under his real name, Chris Irvine, on Monday’s show – dedicated his dance to his late mother. I’m not going to lie: I actually started to tear up a bit listening to Jericho talk about his mother and watching his performance.
