Here’s a little behind-the-scenes Dancing With the Stars scoop to start off the recap: I understand that our stars learned as early as Friday the order they would be dancing during My Jam Monday, so Prince Farmer knew before the weekend that he’d get to kick off tonight’s show while Lady Marmalade was rewarded the last dance of the evening. I can’t imagine anything more disheartening—knowing that you aren’t strong enough to open or close the night, and realizing how your middle-of-the-show positioning brings you closer to the ol’ heave ho. And in case you can’t recall (and you probably can’t because his cha-cha was dreadfully forgettable): Redfoo danced fourth to last on opening night—right in the dead zone… Which is probably why he became the first star to leave the dance floor.
“I got the chance to dance. I did my best,” he said at show’s end. “Emma is the best. I wanted to be there for her.”
