'Dancing with the Stars': Michael Bolton wants an apology from Bruno Tonioli
Grammy-winning singer Michael Bolton wants an apology from "Dancing with the Stars" judge Bruno Tonioli for his unnecessarily harsh criticism Monday (Sept 27).
The judge called the singer-songwriter's "Hound Dog" jive routine "the worst jive in 11 seasons."
"I think he should apologize publically and be reprimanded for it," Bolton, 57, said on "Good Morning America."
Bruno lashed out at Bolton's dance with partner Chelsie Hightower in which they used a dog house as a prop. He scolded him like a dog, saying, "I am a dog lover, but you make it so hard for me. You should have taken your bone and gone back to the dog house. You did it all very, very, very badly."
What no hitting on the nose with a newspaper?
Bolton said he was "disappointed" by the judge's harsh words. "My mom was there, she flew in. She's 90 and I thought she was going to really enjoy it, and I just didn't expect that level of disrespect from him."
What did you think of Bruno's critique? Rude or right on?
