“I don’t know how to feel right now,” the teary-eyed singer said upon her shocking elimination. “It hasn’t processed yet for me.”
“People vote and their voices count,” Brandy’s pro partner Russian beefcake Maksim Chmerkovskiy said. “I love the fact that the show represents that. It represents the people’s choice.”
While surviving contestants Kyle Massey and Jennifer Grey were expected to stay, Palin’s upset over Brandy, who scored consistently higher this season, caused a stir amongst the show’s regulars.
“This is such a shock,” DWTS co-host Brooke Burke said, while pro dancer Derek Hough was caught with a stunned look on his mug.
“I want to stress it’s very important for everybody to vote. It’s so close, every vote counts,” judge Bruno Tonioli said, adding he was “so disappointed” to see the R&B star’s successful run on the show come to a screeching halt.
“Your freestyle, I was looking [forward] so much to see it,” he told her.
On Monday’s show, The Boy Is Mine singer earned a perfect score in one of her routines, and poured her heart out in a practice clip in which she explained her feelings in the wake of her December 2006 car accident in Los Angeles that killed Awatef Aboundihaj, a mother-of-two.
“I felt like the world was against me,” she said of the crash, adding it “was proven [the accident] was not my fault.”
Dancing With The Stars’ finals week begins on ABC Monday at 8/7c.
