h the horror! Snooki smears zombie make-up all over her face as she bursts into fits of tears after being kicked off Dancing With The Stars

By Daily Mail Reporter

PUBLISHED: 05:36, 29 October 2013 | UPDATED: 06:02, 29 October 2013

This is the moment Snooki bursts into tears when she learns she has been eliminated from Dancing with the Stars.

The former Jersey Shore star couldn’t hold back when she was unexpectedly voted off the TV show on Monday.

And matters were made worse because she was still made-up like a zombie from an earlier routine when she got the bad news.


Horror show: Snooki certainly helped the Halloween edition live up to its billing as she was eliminated on Dancing With The Stars on Monday

She had fake blood smeared on her face and and looked disheveled as she had to face the other contestants to say goodbye.

‘I can’t even talk right now,’ said Nicole, crying.

‘I love everybody here, so it sucks.’

The audience were heard booing at the shock result.

She and partner Sasha Farber had faced off against Bill Engvall and Emma Slater in the bottom two.

But Bill - in last place last week - survived.


Tears of desperation: It looks like Nicole Polizzi's TV career could be nearing its end after this


Shore-ly not: The MTV favourite was completely stunned that she had been eliminated


Snook-ered: But luckily for her she still has plenty to look forward as a mother and soon-to-be wife

Nicole insisted on hugging her fellow contestants as host Brooke Burke Charvet repeatedly tried to get her to come to talk to the judges.

Many of the other contenders, including Bill, were seen crying, too.

‘Look at the faces of the people left behind,’ said Tom Bergeron. ‘This is the hard part of the season when everybody is loved and we’re going to miss you here, we really are.’

She couldn’t even look at the cameras initially.

But she rallied to joke: ‘Why am I leaving [as] a zombie?’

The episode featured both individual and team dance rounds.

In the first round the couples took on styles they had not previously attempted.


Tense moment: Snooki looked confident as she was up against the even more leaden-footed Bill Engval


Shocker: Bill's partner Emma Slater could not believe they had managed to scrape through and neither could Snooki


Making it obvious: No prizes for guessing who judge Carrie Ann Inaba wanted to stay in the competition

They got a perfect 30 last week.

So the pressure was on for Val Chmerkovskiy and Elizabeth Berkley as they geared up to do the quickstep.

But the Showgirls actress seemed to be struggling to discipline herself.

‘If the camera was off I would punch the wall,’ said a frustrated Val.

Their retro routine opened with an old-time newscast that joked that five-year-old ballroom prodigy Little Lenny Goodman had won a world dance championship - for the fifth time.

In a spoof of The War of the Worlds an announcer said UFOs had been spotted over Los Angeles - so the pair danced like the world really was coming to an end.

And they could barely breathe after.


Emotional: The Jersey Shore favourite was struggling to contain her disappointment after losing out


Looking into the future: She gazed into the distance for a moment as the painful reality hit home


Having a laugh: It was hard for the crowd and Carrie to contain their chuckles as the drama unfolded

Len Goodman said: ‘That was a UFO - utterly full on! That’s the way to start a show!’

‘The aliens are not coming, catch your breath!’ Bruno Tonioli told them. ‘It really was breathtaking.’

Carrie Ann Inaba praised Elizabeth’s progress.

‘She is becoming the ballroom dancer,’ she said.

Each judge gave them nine points for a total of 27.

‘I love this goofy kind of sense of humor it brings with it,’ said Brant Daugherty as he got set to do the jive with Peta Murgatroyd.

She was a sexy ice cream seller in their 1950s-set routine - showing off frilly red knickers as she did a cartwheel with the TV soap actor - accompanied by the Little Richard song Tutti Frutti.


No Spano in the works: Saved By The Bell star Elizabeth Berkley glided through with a calm performance


She's still a Showgirl at heart: Elizabeth certainly seemed to delight in hamming it up for the camera


Frank Bruno: Tonioli pulled no punches as he told the actress how much he loved her performance

The audience roared as he slid under her legs, then tore off her skirt.

But he had a quick slip.

They also appeared to be sweating profusely after the high-energy dance, as presenter Tom Bergeron mopped her face.

‘You were like a frisky schoolboy on a sugar high!’ Bruno told Brant.

‘I love seeing a hot hunky guy like you taking yourself lightly,’ Carrie said, who said the routine might have been too complex for them.

‘You came out and gave it plenty,’ said Len who praised their ‘energy’ and ‘attack’.

Each judge gave them nine for a total of 27.


Sneak attack: Brant did not seem to realise Peta was about to take him from behind


Taking charge: But the manly star soon showed the dance professional who was really in charge


Laurel and Hardy: Bruno told Brant he was like a frisky schoolboy and Len said he 'gave it plenty'

Leah Remini got 27 points last week with Tony Dovolani.

‘I’m not used to being that happy - well, showing it!’ the former Scientologist joked as they prepared.

He wanted to give her a tough dance to prove what she could do - and put her through her paces.

They did the salsa as TV host pal Chelsea Handler watched from the audience.

‘I’m here to support my friend Leah Remini and of course to see you,’ Chelsea told Tom Bergeron.

‘Because you know how sexually attracted I am to you.’

‘I love this gig,’ he said, to nervous laughter from the audience.

The sexually-charged routine featured several complex lifts and spins, while both beamed with joy at the end.

Carrie said it was like being at a salsa club, adding: ‘You were the hottest salsa dancers on the floor.’


Holding it together: Leah Remini showed the focus she attained through years of Scientology practice


Her celebrity Handler: Chelsea showed up to cheer on her leaden footed friend through her routine


Chuckle vision: Carrie seemed tickled pink and told her she was the hottest salsa dancer on the floor

‘One or two of the lifts weren’t quite clean enough,’ said Len, to boos from the audience.

‘You’ve gone salsa-licious on me,’ said Bruno, licking his lips. ‘You’ve got the taste for it - all succulent and juicy and tasty. You gave me a real good flash of a salsa, Leah.’

‘He speaks better with a paddle,’ joked Tom Bergeron after an alarmed looking Leah calimed she didn’t understand Bruno.

Carrie and Bruno awarded them nine points, while Len gave them eight for a total of 26.

And only then was it revealed that Leah had been battling a rib injury that saw her get several injections in the run-up to the show.

‘I love sympathy but I didn’t want to make it so obvious,’ Leah said.

‘I think I have a little bit of the mid season blues,’ multiple sclerosis sufferer Jack Osbourne said as he and Cheryl Burke practiced their jive.

‘I know you just think this is me being lazy but this is just knocking the s*it out of me,’ he told Cheryl at one point. ‘My body’s going to give out on me. I’m not just pulling that card out.’

‘There’s no reason you can’t win this,’ she urged him.


Flagging: Jack Osbourne seemed to be struggling to hold it all together during the practice sessions


Miss Motivator: But Cheryl Burke did the legendary Derrick Evans proud as she whipped him into shape


Tickety-boo: And it certainly paid off as jolly Jack gave a masterful performance of glorious camp

He sat with a guitar at the start of their country-inspired routine, set to Canned Heat’s Going Up The Country that saw Cheryl show off her toned legs as he flashed her underwear while Jack attempted a couple of high kicks while wife Lisa watched from the sidelines.

‘There’s a naturalness about you,’ said Len. ‘You’re always great to watch.’

‘You must dig deep in your reserves but it doesn’t show,’ said Bruno, who praised his ‘charm’.

‘Everything was done with perfection,’ Carrie Ann told them.

She gave them 10 points - to their astonishment and delight - while Len gave them eight and Bruno nine points for a total of 27.

‘Do I get to keep this?’ said Jack, holding the ’10’ paddle aloft.

‘I’m built for comfort, not speed,’ Jack joked of the surprise.

Dad Ozzy Osbourne and mum Sharon blew kisses at him from the audience.


So much for the Prince of Darkness: Ozzy lost even more metal cred when he kissed Sharon as they watched


Top marks: Jack was overjoyed when he got fantastic scores from the impressed judges


Jack needs you: But the reality personality was not afraid to channel Lord Kitchener to get votes

Sharon said: ‘I’ve said to him ‘Why don’t you just throw in the towel?’ And he’s like, ‘How dare you? I’ll never do that.’’

Injured Derek Hough feared he may not have been able to perform after injuring his back - while Glee actress partner Amber Riley was still having knee problems.

‘My fear is that he’s going to make himself worse,’ said Amber as they practiced the paso doble.

But they made it to the dance floor for their passionate, fiery Latin number.

‘It was like vintage wine,’ said Bruno. ‘Full of depth, flavor [and] amazing color.’

Carrie Ann shouted: ‘You slayed the beast again.’

She waved her arms up and down so enthusiastically, her bracelet flew off her wrist.

‘You lit this ballroom up!’

‘You are back in the game!’ said Len.


Poor Derek: Hough has injured his back hoisting around his partner around the dance floor


Feeling a twinge: And he appeared to reach round to his rear as the pair went through their paces


Just deserts: But the pair where duly rewarded when Carrie Ann lathered them in generous praise

Len and Carrie gave them 10 points but Bruno awarded them just nine, denying them a perfect 30 and leaving them with 29 points.

That drew boos and arguments from his fellow judges.

‘This girl is full of talent,’ Len said of Amber. ‘I won’t tell you what Bruno is full of.’

‘This old guy ain’t dead yet,’ said comedian Bill Engval as he got ready for the quick step with Emma Slater.

They were to do it to Elvis’ Viva Las Vegas, so he took English-born Emma to Sin City with  him between practices.

‘I hate this f*cking dance,’ he said as he failed to get the moves right.

Doing his best impression of The King, he twirled showgirl Emma around the stage, somewhat tamely.

‘That’s the most hair gel I’ve ever seen on you,’ Tom told him.

‘It was a little loose,’ said Carrie, who praised him for taking on a tough dance.


Bill of wrongs: Engval failed to impress as he plodded his way through an uninspired routine


Laboured: But the rhythmically challenged funnyman somehow lived top see another day


Not very Goodman: Len tried to be constructive but there was not much for him to work with

‘If I could just sit here and judge with my heart, I’d give you a 10,’ Len told him.

‘You rolled your dice and you hoped for the best,’ said Bruno.

Carrie and Bruno gave them eight points, while Len gave them seven for 23 in total.

‘You’re a pint-sized, rule-hating bundle of charisma,’ Tom told Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi.

‘Is that a compliment?’ she asked. ‘I’m like a chihuahua. I just want to attack it. I’m a squirrel monkey.’

She had a tough week preparing for her samba that saw her channel Beyonce.

She told how her son - whom she visits on the East Coast between rehearsing - had a fever, leaving her exhausted.

‘I’m turning into a zombie. My brain feels like scrambled eggs,’ she said.


Scrambled legs: For Snooki it was her footwork rather than her brain that was the problem


Wooden: One of the Jersey Shore pier planks would have given a more animated performance


Stiff: It was obvious to Bruno what the reality television personalty's problem was on the dancefloor

She summoned her inner Queen Bey and found the energy to pull off the routine set to Hey Mama by the Black Eyed Peas. But she said she felt like a slow ’turtle’ afterwards.

‘To dance at that speed and still show rhythm and control is terrific,’ said Len.

Bruno added: ‘You got the party started!’

‘I want to see you think more like a Great Dane,’ said Carrie.

Each judge gave them nine points for a total of 27.

Actor Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff were determined to do better as they tried to get their cha cha ready.

She kept changing her mind about the routine - as late as Friday.

‘I’m freaking out,’ Corbin said.


Cordon Bleu: Actor Corbin served up a routine to savour as he glided around with Karina Smirnoff


Smirnoff nice: Karina certainly seemed happy with her charge's efforts when they finished too


Entranced: Carrie Ann was certainly more than a little impressed with their dynamic display

Their routine began with a rain shower set to NONONO’s Pumpin’ Blood.

But the clouds soon cleared as they danced energetically around in almost perfect sync, happily smiling.

‘The sun is shining on Corbin!’ said Bruno. ‘Immaculate. Brilliant!’

‘That was the tightest cha cha I’ve ever seen!’ said Carrie Ann. ‘It was hot.’

‘I’m not a lover of the gyrating,’ grouched Len as Bruno swung his hips next to him.

‘It comes somewhere between a baby crying and rap music. I just want it to be over.’

Carrie and Bruno gave them 10 while Len gave them nine for a total of 29.

The team dance round saw ‘Foxing Awesome’ pitted against ‘SpookyBomBom’.


Spook-tacular: There was certainly a lot of bite to team SpookyBomBom's performance


Holding on for dear life: The dance pro looked terrified that the bumbling comedian may let go

‘I have a tattoo across my chest that sounds a lot like ‘Foxxing Awesome’,’ said Jack as he revealed the inspiration for the name.

SpookyBomBom - Bill, Snooki, Leah and Elizabeth and their partners - were inspired by Bill to do a Halloween routine.

They dressed as zombies as they cavorted around a graveyard as former gymnast Snooki showed off some impressive backflips.

And at the end she was launched high into the air before being caught by her teammates.

Len said: ‘Nicole, you are truly the pocket rocket!’

‘I never thought you could have so much fun with the Walking Dead,’ said Bruno.


The not-so-fantastic Mr Fox: A book could be filled with the footstep errors made by the celebrities


Foxy lady: But thankfully the dance pros were on hand to keep everything moving along smoothly

‘You were the glue that held [it] together,’ Carrie Ann told Bill.

Each judge gave them nine points for 27.

Those scores were added to the individual scores to determine who stayed in - and who left.

Foxing Awesome, meanwhile - Corbin, Amber, Brant and Jack - dressed up as FOXES in their high-octane routine performed to Ylvis hit, The Fox.

‘You sly little foxes, that was so clever,’ said Bruno.

‘I feel like I was on an acid trip!’ said Carrie Ann.

‘I salute both teams,’ said Len.

They got 10 from each judge for a total of 30 points.

That meant one team from SpookyBomBom would be facing the axe.

Amber and Derek topped the leaderboard with 91 points while Bill and Emma were at the bottom with 74.

It was also revealed Cher will be sitting on the judge’s panel next week as Len Goodman takes more time off, reportedly to work on the UK version of the show.


Panel beater: Len is to make way for Cher on next week's programme due to other committments


Who needs Black Sabbath? Jack certainly looked like he could give Tony Iommi a run for his money
