Michael Bolton is still a fan of Dancing with the Stars. But after judge Bruno Tonioli’s “mean-spirited” critique of the singer’s dance number Monday, Bolton has a message for the judge: “Bruno should search his soul for what he is doing on that show.”
The Grammy award-winning singer – who was voted off the show after Tonioli described his routine as “the worst jive in 11 seasons” and said he did it “very, very, very badly” – says he has nothing but praise for the show itself. “The producers and the people who work for them are phenomenal at making you feel as comfortable as possible.”
Though Bolton had said he feels the judge owes him an apology, he isn’t going to ask twice.
