MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil suffered an awkward fall on the ice during his appearance on the latest episode of ABC's newest reality show, "Skating With The Stars". Sean Young and Denis Petukhov also became the first pair to be eliminated after receiving the lowest combined score from the first two performances, managing only 64 out of a possible 120 points.
According to Digital Spy, here's what the judges — Olympian Johnny Weir, skating commentator Dick Button and celebrity choreographer Laurieann Gibson — said about Vince's second performance:
Johnny: Says that he saw an "aura of intensity" when watching Vince as his musical knowledge has come in handy. However, urges him to concentrate on "basic skating" due to the fall Vince suffered during the performance. (Technical Merit: 3 / Artistic Impression: 6)
Laurieann: Calls Vince "masculine" and loves the drama and musicality of the performance. "Technically, the ice skating was bad, but just for the artistic side, amazing!" (Technical Merit: 6 / Artistic Impression: 6)
Dick: Tells Vince not to worry about making mistakes but advises him to work on his skating skills. "I enjoy your personality on the ice and I'm having a great time watching you!" he adds. (Technical Merit: 4 / Artistic Impression: 5)
