We’re getting down to the liiiiiiiiiiiiiive wire of Dancing With the Stars — just two weeks left before William Levy, Maria Menounos, Donald Driver, or Katherine Jenkins wins the coveted mirrorball trophy! I sat down with host/zen master Tom Bergeron after Tuesday’s double elimination results show to go over season 14.

How has the Dance Duel made Tom’s job more difficult — and should we cut cohost Brooke Burke some slack for always asking contestants “How do you feel?” Where does ABC get off airing two shows with “bitch” in the title, then bleeping out Tom when he decides to fire off a “B”? Did Maks get a horrible edit this ****ing season? Will Donald ever get that 10 from Len? Has William Levy’s uber-hotness made Tom partially deaf?

Watch below — and be sure to stick around ’til the end for Tom’s special shout-out to’s hidden gem-hunting community.

By the way, this is the “Queen tribute band” I was referring to at the beginning — a hidden gem in itself, from this season’s Rock Week. Nerd alert!

How wonderful is Tom Bergeron?!

Ready for the semifinals, DANCMSTRs? I’ll be in the ballroom! See you tonight!

Who will win? Press play on the triangle below to hear Annie, Dalton Ross, and Jessica Shaw chat about the final four on this week’s Inside TV Podcast. The Dancing With the Stars discussion begins at 28:40.
