Cheryl Burke and Chris Jericho on 'Good Morning America'Chris Jericho talked to 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) today about being voted off 'Dancing With the Stars.' Sure, he's disappointed, but he said the voting was pretty close, and in a Twitter post he took time to thank his fans for supporting him. His partner, Cheryl Burke, appeared alongside him.

With his dancing duties relieved, Jericho said he has other tasks to which he must attend. "I'm just so excited about the royal wedding I don't think I could concentrate about doing another scene this week," he said. "I got to get on a Concorde, I've got to go over there, I've got a bachelor party for Prince William. So there's a lot of stuff going on."

Hopefully, William doesn't need tango lessons for the reception.

Tom Bergeron, Brooke Burke, Chris Jericho and Cheryl BurkeWhen a show like 'Dancing With the Stars' is filled with so many talented celebrities, one off week can cost someone his or her place on the show. That's just what happened with Chris Jericho and his pro partner Cheryl Burke.

After scoring a low mark of 22 for their tango during "guilty pleasures" week, the two were voted off the show.

While the ejected duo and the survivors usually all go backstage together to do press, this week only Jericho and Burke did. The rest of the cast hoofed it immediately to rehearsal, since next week's show includes team dances.

Below, check out what Jericho and Burke had to say about their exit, what host Brooke Burke thinks of the competition this season and what Len Goodman thought of Kendra Wilkinson's dance.

Chris Jericho Hits Guillermo With a Folding Chair on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (VIDEO)

Cheryl Burke & Chris Jericho, 'Dancing with the Stars'Chris Jericho is content with his elimination from 'Dancing with the Stars.' In fact, he revealed on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) that there was something far more serious on his mind throughout the competition.

"There wasn't one costume that I wore this season that bothered me at all," he said. Perhaps it's because of his wrestling background, as Kimmel surmised, but Jericho actually wanted things to be even more risqué.

"Most of the times they want to have you in these nice little suit-and-tie with suspenders," he said of the costumers. "I'm like, where's the spandex, man!"

'Dancing With the Stars' Week Six Results: The Eliminated Contestant Is... (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 27th 2011 1:23AM
'Dancing with the Stars' week six resultsIt was a week of "Guilty Pleasures" on 'Dancing with the Stars' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC). The lowest marks from last night's competition episode came from Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke, with a combined total of 22 points.

This was two points higher than Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff, who suffered a fall during their Paso Doble. With everyone else scoring combinations of 8s, 9s and 10s, it was a pretty close night from the judges, which put even more responsibility in the hands of America and the vote.


Tom Bergeron narrowed it down to the aforementioned Jericho and Macchio, indicating that the voters at home had sided with the judges. But had they agreed completely on who had the weakest performance and deserved to go home?

Backstage Interviews at 'Dancing With the Stars': Karina Smirnoff on Her Fall; Maksim Chmerkovskiy Is Not Married

Kendra, Dancing With the StarsKendra Wilkinson's spectacular comeback with her sexy samba may save her for another week on 'Dancing With the Stars.' Fan favorite (and AOL TV blogger) Chris Jericho's tango scored lowest for the night, however, which potentially places the former pro wrestler in jeopardy on tonight's results program.

Monday's performance show contained many surprises, including the first two 10s of the season for Romeo and his pro partner Chelsie Hightower. The competition's other Chelsea -- Chelsea Kane -- earned a 10 with her pro partner Mark Ballas.

There were a pair of mishaps, too, but neither belong to Kirstie Alley. Karina Smirnoff took a brief fall while doing the paso doble with her partner, Ralph Macchio, and Ballas twisted his ankle during dress rehearsal, but he soldiered through with his and Kane's quick step.

AOL TV was on the post-show press line to talk to the remaining contestants, during which time Maksim Chmerkovskiy cleared up those rumors that he's secretly married.

Chris Jericho's Hunt for the 'Elusive Eight' From 'DWTS' Judge Len Goodman

Exclusive: Despite landing in the bottom two, guest blogger Chris Jericho discusses the personal milestone he hit during week five of 'Dancing With the Stars.'

Bigfoot. The Loch Ness Monster. The Holy Grail.

All of them are unsolved mysteries that have been studied and pursued for centuries. Yet none of them are as evasive or mythical as my personal 'Dancing With the Stars' White Whale: scoring an eight from Len Goodman.

My quest for the elusive eight started after week two, when Len awarded me the first of three successive sevens in the competition. It seemed no matter what I did or what Len thought of my dances, he always gave me the same score.

Backstage Interviews at 'Dancing With the Stars': Kendra, Carrie Ann Make Up; John Travolta Loves Maks

Kendra Wilkinson and Louis van AmstelRivalries, couples not getting along, polarizing celebrities and loads of off-screen drama. These are the things that, for better or worse, have at times dominated the reality competition series known as 'Dancing With the Stars.'

But as regular viewers of the show are finding out, there's not much of that going on in season 12. Instead, the most compelling aspects of the show are taking place right where they should be -- on the dance floor.

There was, however, one feud that seemed to erupt from last week's show -- Kendra Wilkinson appeared to take great umbrage at judge Carrie Ann Inaba's remark that she appeared fearful of embracing elegance.

Wilkinson was still clearly upset by the exchange in the video segment shown prior to this week's dance. But what viewers may not know is that the two women cleared the air just before Wilkinson and Louis van Amstel performed the fox trot on Monday night.

Chris Jericho Talks His 'Idol' Connections with James Durbin and Pia Toscano (VIDEO)

Chris Jericho, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'It's a pretty big deal to be a celebrity contestant on 'Dancing With the Stars.' It is, after all, the No. 2 show on television. But it's Chris Jericho's connections to the No. 1 show on television that is getting him the most attention, according to his appearance on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

Both 'American Idol' and 'DWTS' tape in the same studio, so Jericho has had opportunities to meet some of the contestants. He and James Durbin have become friends, and he even helped Pia Toscano make a possible love connection.

In relaying the story, he broke into an amazing Pia impression, too. "Oh, I really like Mark Ballas and he's so pretty," Jericho said she told him, and so he simply facilitated the exchanging of phone numbers.

Chris Jericho Felt Like a 'King' During Classical Night on 'Dancing With the Stars'

Exclusive: Pro wrestler Chris Jericho guest blogs about how a song saved 'Dancing With the Stars' classical-music night for him.

For the first time ever on 'Dancing With the Stars,' it was Classical Week, which meant that all the dances were performed in front of a 46-piece symphony orchestra.

When I first heard about the concept, I have to admit that I wasn't overly excited. I mean, I appreciate the Beethovens and Tchaikovskys of the world, but I didn't know how I was supposed to dance the passionate paso doble to a song that had no words or drums!

It was with great hesitation that I asked partner Cheryl Burke to play me the song to which we would be performing. But as the music unfolded, it was with great joy that I realized I knew the song and had heard it 100 times before: It was 'Hall of the Mountain King' by Savatage.

Chris Jericho: I Call It 'Dancing With Some Scars,' Week Three

Exclusive: Pro wrestler Chris Jericho guest blogs about the emotional performance he dedicated to his mother on 'Dancing With the Stars.'

As a performer, there's a goal I set out to accomplish every time I step onto the stage. Whether it's making people cheer (or boo) in the WWE, having people sing along to my songs with Fozzy or engaging people with my books, there's a certain magic that comes with knowing that you've affected people.

When I first agreed to do 'Dancing With the Stars,' after two previous invitations, I really had no idea what I was getting myself into. The concept of ballroom dancing was as foreign to me as a Werner Herzog film, and I had no expectations of what I could or couldn't do on the floor. Would I actually be able to do it? Could I entertain people with my moves, my charisma and my showmanship? And, more importantly, could I make them feel something special while they watched me?

Backstage Interviews at 'Dancing With the Stars': Maks and Kirstie on Their Week Three Fall

by Michael Maloney, posted Apr 5th 2011 7:00AM
Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy"Personal story" night always yields some heartfelt moments on 'Dancing With the Stars' and last night's installment of that theme was no exception as several stars cut open some veins, revealing stories of deep personal loss. They then incorporated those stories into their dances.

The decisions that the stars and dancers made yielded some interesting results: Hines Ward and Petra Nemcova tied for first place, taking the top position from previous front-runner Ralph Macchio.

But the most dramatic moment of last night's performance was when Maksim Chmerkovskiy suffered a spasm in his thigh, which sent him and partner Kirstie Alley to the dance floor, shortly after they began their dance.

The Ukrainian-born ballroom bad boy and comedic actress extraordinaire quickly composed themselves, however, and resumed their rumba to 'Over the Rainbow,' earning applause from the audience and classy comments from the judges, who praised them for their inspiring comeback.

After the show, the stars and their pro dance partners reflected on the highs and lows of the evening. TV Squad was on the scene to get the scoop.

Chris Jericho: I Joined 'Dancing With the Stars' to Make My Son Smile

by Chris Jericho, posted Mar 30th 2011 4:00PM
Exclusive: Pro wrestler Chris Jericho guest blogs about why he joined 'Dancing With the Stars.'

A lot of a people have been asking me why I decided to do 'Dancing With the Stars.' There are many reasons, and the feeling I had Monday night when I finished in first place was one of them. (Technically I finished in a three-way tie for first, but that's nitpicking now, isn't it?)

After a case of the jitters in week one, I was ecstatic with my performance in week two. I really felt in the groove, in the pocket and in the moment. I also felt like I was wearing a World War II army helmet with all of the goop and greasy-kid stuff that was squelched (fun word!) in my hair.

But that's part of the fun of 'DWTS,' isn't it? Every day is a veritable Halloween, where everyone can wear as much spandex, rhinestones, guyliner and hair products as they want and still look somewhat cool doing so. It's the epitome of show bizness, baby!

Backstage Interviews at 'Dancing With the Stars': Week Two Elimination Nerves

by Michael Maloney, posted Mar 29th 2011 9:00AM
He may have the best smile, but Mike Catherwood is also the least-known star on season 12 of 'Dancing With the Stars', and his combined score of 30 after two weeks of dancing is the lowest. Can the Los Angeles disc jockey and his partner Lacey Schwimmer evade tonight's elimination on 'DWTS'?

"I have the lowest fan base and lowest score," Catherwood told TV Squad on the post-show press line last night. "If anything keeps us on the show beyond this week we'll have to do things differently. It can't be just, 'Oh, I'll try harder.' We'll have to go back to the drawing board and break it down."

If Catherwood manages to avoid being sent home during tonight's elimination show he'll have Schwimmer to thank. She brings her own fan following, not just from 'DWTS,' but also from 'So You Think You Can Dance' on which she appeared from 2007–08.

Cheryl Burke & Chris Jericho, 'Dancing With the Stars'After scoring a 19 last week in the Cha-Cha-Cha, Chris Jericho pleasantly surprised the judges this time on 'Dancing with the Stars' (Mon., 8PM on ABC).

The Quickstep is traditionally known as one of the most difficult dances to master, and yet the wrestler and his professional partner, Cheryl Burke, proved to be both light in their steps and graceful across the floor.

Len Goodman summed up most of our expectations after what we saw last week. He anticipated "a big, lumbering lump plodding around the floor." Instead "It was bright, breezy, light of foot."
