Len Goodman is Cruel to Be Kind: Jaleel White is Eliminated


Well, after Jaleel White’s Viennese waltz on classical night judge Len Goodman stated, “I liked it enough not to be cruel but I didn’t like it enough to be really kind.” And he didn’t like it enough to save White from elimination.

After dancing a head to head rumba against Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower the judges unanimously voted to save Fegan sending White home on Dancing with the Stars week six. The child star was very gracious saying that he hadn’t expected to last this one hoping to execute three great dances. 

White’s performances with partner Kym Johnson varied greatly during his time on DWTS. Some weeks the actor showed great promise while he seemed to lack confidence other weeks.  I’ve enjoyed watching him and was surprised to see him go before Melissa Gilbert. Were you surprised by last night’s DWTS elimination? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
