"Dancing With The Stars"
Zendaya or Kellie Pickler will be winning the mirrorball trophy. At least according to the judges' scores on "Dancing With the Stars." They both got two rounds of perfect 10s on last night's show. A single point separates Zendaya and Pickler, based on their performances in the cha-cha relay. Aly Raisman had perfect scores on her freestyle too, but not her first dance. The judges also praised Jacoby Jones. But the Baltimore Ravens' star fell short of the rest on his performances. The winner will be crowned on tonight's show.
Usually the audience is applauding on "Dancing With the Stars," as the show returns from a commercial break. But not on last night's show. Tom Bergeron asked the studio audience to remain silent after one break. He noted they're live and to go to air in the shadow of another tragic event. Last month, it was the Boston bombings. Last night, it was the devastating tornado in Oklahoma. Bergeron says their thoughts are with the victims and their families. Bergeron then asked the audience to applaud the first-responders who were still searching for victims as the broadcast aired.
Blake Shelton is from Oklahoma -- and he's thinking about the victims of yesterday's killer tornado. On "The Voice" last night, Shelton said people in his home state were going through "hell" but adds his family is OK. The Swon brothers are also from Oklahoma and say they're praying for the folks back home. As for the performances, Shelton says Sarah Simmons from Team Adam "just radiated sexy." Adam Levine says she had the best performance of the night.
'Mike And Molly' Episode Pulled
CBS pulled the season-ending episode of "Mike and Molly" off the air last night, because the plot line revolved around a tornado. The network said a rerun was broadcast instead, out of sensitivity to victims of the deadly tornado in Oklahoma. CBS says the finale will air "at an appropriate date." The plot had Mike and Molly confessing to each other as a tornado threatens Chicago.
