HOLLYWOOD - The audience, the judges, the viewers, and especially the dancers were all very happy that judge Len "The Grouchy Grouch" Goodman was not in attendance for the latest edition of Dancing With The Stars.
The shows producers asked Cher to fill in for Len and the 67-year-old music icon gladly accepted the offer.
Cher got to perform two songs and show off three different hairdos and seven different outfits as many of the dance couples danced to her hits.
Derek "The Dancing Dude" Hough and Val Chmerkovskiy both danced without shirts and both said that it was great not having Len The Hen criticize them for showing off their bare torsos.
One could see that Bruno "The Gaytalian" Tonioli was in paradise as twice Cher was overheard telling him to put his tongue back in his mouth.
The couple that was sent home was Brant Daugherty of the TV series Pretty Little Liars and his professional dance partner Peta Murgatroyd.
The two had become very close and Carrie Ann Inaba noted, "It looks like Brant may have fallen for Peta the Cougar."
An inside source said that after the show Cher spoke with several of the shows executives and they are seriously considering firing the bitter, old, cantankerous English judge Len Goodman.
SIDENOTE: The word behind-the-scenes is that if Goodman is fired the shows honchos would like for Cher to take his place.
