In a shocking surprise, Brady Bunch mom Florence Henderson was voted off Dancing With The Stars on Tuesday night, while the previous night’s two low scorers – teen celibacy advocate Bristol Palin and Disney star Kyle Massey – were the first to be saved.

“I have been in TV for over 50 years, and I have to say in all honesty that this is one of the best-produced shows I’ve ever been on,” Henderson – gracious in defeat – said following her elimination. “I’ve loved this show since it began. I think it’s just a tremendous show.
“I hope I’ve inspired people to get up off their behind and move and dance and live and enjoy life,” the 76-year-old actress said.
Henderson’s dance partner, Corky Ballas, said his partner this season “has a beautiful aura about her, and I couldn’t [have asked] for anyone better.”
The evening also featured performances from pop stars Shakira and Jason Derulo, as well bits related to the week’s television theme, such as a commercial for how to dance like judge Bruno Tonioli, and a skit featuring eliminated contestant David Hasselhoff as “The Sledgehammer,” an attorney seeking revenge for fellow ousted celeb dancers Margaret Cho and The Situation.
Dancing With The Stars‘ eleventh season continues on ABC next Monday at 8/7c.
