It must have been difficult for Chris Jericho to keep his mind on his performance last night on Dancing With The Stars, having dedicated the dance to his beloved mother, who died six years ago after an auto accident left her a quadriplegic.
Chris said he was coming out of character and would perform as Chris Irvine in honor of his mother, who always encouraged him to dance. Chris and partner Cheryl Burke danced to the rumba, with Chris choosing The Beatles’ “Let It Be,” the song that was played at his mom’s funeral.
In my opinion, the judges where very hard on Chris and Cheryl, noting that he was not moving his hands in the right position. C&C’s score of 21 out of 30 left them in a tie with Kirstie Alley and her partner, Max Chmerkovskiy and Ralph Macchio and his partner, Karina Smirnoff. The high scores of the night, 25, went to Hines Ward and Kym Johnson and Petra Nemcova and Dmitry Chaplin. Tonight we will see if Chris and Cheryl will be able to dance other day.
