Missy Keating is the fourth celebrity to be eliminated from this year’s Dancing with the Stars. The Irish model and influencer was paired up with pro-dancer, Ervinas Merfeldas and last night saw them in the dreaded dance-off.
This was the first dance-off of this season, which sees the two celebrity couples with the lowest combined vote from the judges and the public, having to perform again. Missy and Ervinas were joined by Erica Cody and Denys Samson in the bottom two, and ultimately the judges chose to send Missy home.
This was Missy’s first week back on the show, as after testing positive for Covid she had to miss Dedicated Dance Week. She was first out on the floor for this week’s show with a bang, as she was also celebrating her 21st birthday over the weekend!
The pair danced a cheeky charleston to ‘Out Out’ by Joel Corry & Jax Jones feat. Charli XCX & Saweetiw which scored them a 24 from the judges. Giving feedback after their performance Loraine said; “A huge welcome back! What was funky fun charleston, I loved all the different moves. Gorgeous kicks and flicks. The lifts were the very good. I think you smashed it.”
Arthur added; “You are out tonight! A huge Happy 21st Birthday. That was full of energy and personality. You brought charleston to a new era.”
Brian also gave his thoughts on the performance; “It wasn’t that I’d call a traditional charleston. Swivels were good, lots of power and snap. That performance probably unlocked the door for you for next week.”
Unfortunately this brilliant feedback wasn’t enough to keep them in the competition and the pair were sent home this week. Following the result Missy, who has been supported by her Dad, Ronan Keating throughout the show said; “Well at least I’m going out to party now. I’m going out!”
To her partner throughout the series, Ervinas, she said; “Thank you, you’re the best. It’s been an amazing journey. I’ve loved every second.”
Pro-dancer, Ervinas added; “She’s been incredible every week. She gave it her very best. It’s all I can ask for.”
