When Michael Bolton was eliminated from Dancing With the Stars on Tuesday, he called judge Bruno Tonioli "inappropriate and disrespectful" for critiquing his routine with Chelsie Hightower on Monday as “the worst jive . . . ever seen.”

But Bolton didn’t stop there. The singer appeared on Good Morning America Wednesday, and said Tonioli should be forced to tell viewers that he took his comments too far.

“Even Len [Goodman] stopped [Bruno] and said, ‘That’s inappropriate,’ ” Bolton explains. “I think he should apologize publically and be reprimanded for it.”
