SPOILER ALERT! On tonight’s Week 9 elimination episode of Dancing With the Stars, one couple was beamed from Planet Mirrorballus back to a world in which using crushed Swarovski crystals as a shimmering body powder is unfairly considered strange. Catch the fallen Star after the jump; in the meantime, relive Monday’s performance episode with today’s full TV Watch recap and my Week 8 Crazy Costume Watch photo gallery!
Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke were eliminated in Week 8. “Chad is the most humble guy you’ll ever meet. The most amazing, soft, gentle man in the world,” said Cheryl. “I’ll be here next year, as a professional,” said Chad. Eat it, football fans!
