Tom DeLay keeps up the pace in ‘Dancing’ ballroom

SHARE Tom DeLay keeps up the pace in ‘Dancing’ ballroom

Tom De Lay, suffering from crushing stress fractures in both feet and against the advice of his doctors and “Dancing with the Stars” producers, still managed to pull off a samba with partner Cheryl Burke. It wasn’t great by any samba measures, and he was visibly mouthing the count of the steps as the duo traversed the dance floor (other dancers have been roundly chastised for this by the judging panel).

His score of 15 was way inflated thanks to Carrie Ann’s “6” for a really poor performance (and not a word about his counting!). But then the judging this season has been so unpredictable and so off-kilter. Even the ballroom audience doesn’t know whether to boo or applaud; mostly they just moan.
