Henderson and Ballas were not lowest of the night. That dishonor went to Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas, who danced in monkey costumes to "The Monkees" theme. The judges were slightly shocked when it was announced Bristol was safe.
The gracious Henderson took the elimination in stride, praising everything about the show, "even the judges, Brooke, Tom and this darling man, Corky Ballas," she said before hugging her partner. "I hope I've inspired people to get up off their behinds and move and dance and live and enjoy life."
