What Were Those Boos For on DWTS? Sarah Palin Has Arrived!


dancing with the starsDid you wonder what those boos were when Jennifer Grey’s scores were being read on tonight’s episode of Dancing with the Stars?  That was the audience reaction as  Sarah Palin was escorted to her seat to watch her daughter Bristol perform!

Proud mom Sarah Palin was on hand to watch daughter Bristol Palin perform the Quickstep on tonight’s episode of DWTS sitting front and center in the front row.  Mama Palin didn’t start the night in the crowd and was brought in just following fan favorite Jennifer Grey’s routine.  As Grey was receiving her fantastic scores, a round of boos erupted from the audience causing everyone to question what was happening. 

During Brooke Burke’s post-performance interview, she said, “There’s booing in the ballroom. We don’t know why.” 

Jennifer responded, “Why’s there booing? ” 

Well what was happening was Sarah Palin was being escorted to her seat off-camera.  Always a divisive figure some members of the audience opted to boo the Vice Presidential candidate. 

Cut to Tom Bergeron sitting next to ‘guest commentator’ Sarah Palin declaring her love of everything DWTS related – especially the judges!  Palin said, “The judges are awesome.  It’s like just before a hockey game, you’re not going to chew out the refs before your team is up on the ice.  They’re great!”

Guess we’ll have to see what happens when Bristol makes it to the dance floor!
