Cher night on 'DWTS': alert the censor

The ageless pop diva delivers her unfiltered opinion

Cher night on 'DWTS': alert the censor

Does Cher know how to make an entrance or what?

It was Cher night on Dancing with the Stars. She performed, she judged in place of Len Goodman and all the choreography was set to her music. (Although classifying “It’s in his Kiss” as a Cher song is a little disingenuous: This was a hit for Betty Everett back in 1964 as “The Shoop Shoop Song”. At the time, believe it or not, Cher was 18.)

The entrance: She was lowered from the rafters on a crystal lozenge wearing a miniskirt and singing her ode to autotune, “Believe”. Her own troupe of dancers was joined by a contingent of the show’s pros.

As you’ll see in this clip, Cher is still never afraid to speak her mind. After Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Val Chmerkovskiy danced, Cher’s appreciation had to be bleeped.

In the end, Bill Engvall and Emma Slater had the lowest cumulative score – again. (They were the only couple that Cher scored at less than a 9.) Amber Riley and Derek Hough had the highest.

The two couples facing elimination were Brant Daugherty/Peta Murgatroyd and Jack Osbourne/Cheryl Burke. It was the Pretty Little Liars actor, Daugherty, who was banished from the ballroom in week 8. Cher's reaction? Unprintable.
