Oh, Snap!: During the show’s pre-taping, Julianne Hough suffered a wardrobe malfunction when the back of her top snapped while performing to the Kevin Rudolph Band. Hough, of course, never missed a beat. She charged through the rest of the performance with an arm across her chest, holding up her top, then went to get her top fixed before running through the performance again. Tom Bergeron grabbed the mic and told the crowd, “This time, we’re going to see if Julianne Hough’s top fully comes off.” It didn’t.
Stars Missing in Action: The dancers took their marks on stage following a commercial break, but two were noticeably missing. Kym Johnson could not find her partner David Alan Grier, and was seen asking, “Where’s David? Where’s David?” Seconds after the show started, Grier was seen slinking onto the floor. Moments later, Gilles Marini was also seen scurrying to his position behind his partner Cheryl Burke. Later, a guest asked Marini what he was doing. “I was eating a pizza!” he said. An Ear-Splitting Bruno: At one point during the broadcast, Tom Bergeron told viewers that it was best they didn’t know what Bruno Tonioli was doing. So what was the judge doing? Tonioli pulled his left leg straight up and placed his foot toward his ear like a split — a sight that prompted at least one audience member to say, “It was very frightening.”
Feeling Frisky: Meanwhile, the usually reserved Len Goodman was shaking things as well. As soon as he walked to his chair at the judges’ table, he immediately turned to the audience and ripped open his blazer to show off his canary-yellow shirt. The audience cheered with approval. Goodman’s mood was equally sunny: He was seen dancing in his chair throughout the night. –Elaine Aradillas
