With a particularly star-studded cast on Dancing With the Stars 2013, we’ve seen a lot of celebrities in the crowd, ranging from Steven Tyler and J.Lo to the Glee cast to the Osbourne family. However, some of the biggest fans are rooting for their favorite celeb pal from the couch at home — including one Scandal star.
Recently, Tony Goldwyn (President Fitz) tweeted his support for Elizabeth Berkley and pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy, urging his fans to vote for them on DWTS.
“Help support my friend @ElizBerkley @iamvalc during tonight's #DWTS premiere at 8/7c!!! Dial to vote tonight: 1-800-868-3405. #teamchmerkley,” he tweeted on September 30.
While Val and Elizabeth’s superb Foxtrot is what kept them from elimination, the votes they received tonight will help them in next week’s episode. In the words of Scandal’s Olivia Pope, the voting is handled. (And no, she isn’t going to come in and rig the competition like she did with Fitz’s election.)
Val and Elizabeth have topped the Leaderboard for all three weeks of the competition, so we don’t see them going anywhere. However, with a team of Gladiators behind them, it solidifies that they will be around for the long haul, maybe even winning this thing! Either way, we’d love to see Tony in the audience.Are you surprised that Tony is a fan of Elizabeth and Val on DWTS? Sound off below, and catch the next episode on Monday, October 7 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
