Michael Bolton Thinks DWTS Judge "Should Search His Soul"

| Filed under: Reality TV


Aw, come on, Michael Bolton! Lighten up!

The singer is still singing the bitter blues after Dancing with the Stars judge Bruno Tonioli gave him a "mean-spirited" critique the night he was voted off the dancing competition show.

Michael says he has asked for a public apology after Bruno called his routine "the worst jive in 11 seasons" and said he did it "very, very, very badly."

Although he has yet to receive an apology, Michael says he won't ask twice, adding:

"I don't wish to pressure the show … I don't blame them. Nor do I wish ABC to put any pressure on him. I think it's a personal epiphany [Bruno] may have to have/ I asked for it in one interview and I felt he should express a public apology to me. I think asking once is enough, and I don't want my friends, fans and supporters to ask for it. It is what it is."

The show's producers have defended their judge, saying he was only doing his job and he gave an honest opinion about Michael's dance routine.

Michael says he enjoyed his time on the show and praises the cast and crew saying, "The producers and the people who work for them are phenomenal at making you feel as comfortable as possible," however he does have one thing to say to Bruno:

"Bruno should search his soul for what he is doing on that show."

WAAH! WAAH! No one likes a crybaby, Michael!! Just move on and be thankful you even got the chance to be on the show.

    Bruno obviously has a need to make himself feel good by criticizing others. Most people had never heard of Bruno, and once the show is over he will go back to being a nobody. I think he was too harsh, his job is to judge, not give a personal attack, such as he did.

  2. 2

    Grow up Bolton. The guy said you're lousy dancer. So what? Quit acting like a school boy. You're a grown man, (at least physically).

  3. 3

    I thought you were turning over a new leaf Perez? Not being mean to people. What, it lasted one week????

  4. 4

    I thought Bruno could have softened the edges up a bit, but he's pretty much the azzhole of the show so what do you expect? On the other hand, I think Michael should be thanking him for being so brutal, thus extending Michael's extra 15 minutes. It's over Michael.

    too bad we have to see this petty side of bolton….

    And I used to think he was fairly attractive

  6. zoey says – reply to this


    He must not have much going on…

    Michael Bolton needs to shut the f@*k up. He shouldn't have been on the show to begin with. He was the worst dancer…thanks Bruno for telling it like it is. Michael is grown, signed on to be on the show & knew it was going to be judged/criticized. Next time go visit Sesame Street crybaby.

  8. 8

    Come on Michael, Bruno wants you to stick-it-in; give it to him good!

    What is wrong with him? He was horrible, he needs to just deal with the truth and move on. Everyone knows you get slammed on those kind of shows. He needs to quit being a baby.

  10. 10

    Bruno was absolutely correct. Michael Bolton was a disaster as a dancer.

  11. 11

    This guy is way to sensitive to be in show business, i happen to have watched his dance, and it really was THAT bad. i was cringing waiting for it to be over

  12. 12

    I didn't think Bruno's criticism was personal. It focused on how badly Bolton DANCED. For contrast, there's Mia Michaels, a reality TV show judge who REALLY does get personal sometimes - critiquing not just the dance but the dancer's soul or something, as she sees it. Bruno, whatever, he says keeps it light enough. Mia has killed the fun of SYTYCD a few times.

  13. 13

    I felt for him at the time and agreed with what he said. But now he's lost any sympathy from people. It's a freakin' dance show and here he is, a mature adult, whining about it. Wow. No wonder Nicolette broke up with him.

  14. 14

    Anyone who thinks that Bruno needs to apologize, didn't watched the show. Michael Bolton SUCKED and sucked big. Bruno told the truth as he has always done and if Michael can't take it, then he shouldn't have gone on the show. This isn't a popularity contest to the Judges. It's a who's the best dancer contest to them and to the voters who voted Michael off. He deserved to be booted.

  15. 15

    Michael wants Bruno to search his soul, but according to this here picture, Bruno wants Michael to search his hole.

  16. 16

    OMG! How old are you Mike? It's a dance critique show that YOU signed up for. That is what happens. You practise, you dance, you get critiqued. Good, bad and awful. Get over yourself! You could have made this into something hilarious if you could have just laughed at yourself. Get a life and graduate yourself out of kindergarten. No more Mike Whiner Bolton in this house.

  17. 17

    Goodness man GET OVER IT! Seriously take your elitist attitude and stuff it. And by the way I am a fan of yours, but on this one you are just plain wrong. Grow a pair and move on with life.

  18. 18

    your are about 3 weeks too late with this news. and if any of you actually watch dwts you will now that michael was back a week after being kicked off. he filled in for susan boyle. pay attention

  19. 19

    and he had no hard feelings for anybody

  20. 20

    Did you notice that whereever this pic of Bruno was taken is the same one that Vinny from Jersey Shore is in above in your earlier post about him wanting to act. Where were they? Or do they hang out? LOL!

  21. 21

    Re: You Know Like Totally – Your name and avi are both sooo cute!

  22. 22

    What part of dancing competion doesn't Bolton get? He was as awful as Bruno described and more. Worse, it didn't even seem like he wanted to put any real effort into it and thought he coulod just slide by on the fact that he is Michael Bolton. Bruno outted him and he had it coming.

  23. 23

    Michael Bolton is such a whiny little bitch! I couldn't stand watching him on that show, and was SO happy when he got voted off and I totally agreed with Bruno. I didn't even see what the big deal was with what he said to him. Who cares? Michael Bolton's face made my skin crawl…ack! And he just stood there and walked around moving his arms. He should shut the fuck up.

  24. 24

    omg i wanna fist that ass

  25. 25

    OMG, Give it up! You sucked, we all knew you sucked-he just had the balls to say it. My gosh, he is A JUDGE. If you didn't want to get JUDGED, then don't go on a show that is JUDGED…dumbass!

  26. 26

    Is Michael Bolton still bitching about this??? What the fuck???? Let it go, Michael!!! Big fuckin' baby.

  27. 27

    waaahhh stop sniveling Michael, its a reality show….its his job. And your jive did suck !!!

  28. 28

    What a crybaby

    9/28/10 Republicans blocked Offshore bill (S.3816) a bill that would have prevented tax breaks to companies who sent our jobs overseas. Vote the Democrats back in to pass this bill to save our jobs.

    I would like to initiate a pledge for all the celebrities and those in the entertainment industry who are registered to cast a ballot to make the time to vote on 11/2/2010. Also get your friends and fans motivated to vote on 11/2/2010.
    Reasons why to VOTE DEMOCRATIC by reading the following accomplishments:
    1. The healthcare reform initiative was passed so anyone can afford insurance 2. Financial Reform laws were passed to regulate Wall Street’s activities to invest ethically and be accountable 3. Unemployment Benefits were extended to those out of work 4. Initiative was passed to keep teachers, firemen, & local/city government employees from being laid off 5. U.S. businesses are being encouraged to create jobs down the ladder but high pay, huge bonuses & expense accounts hamper this growth 6. Grants, Pell Grants & other academic loans were reinstated, whereas republicans suspended these benefits previously 7. 1st Amendment “Freedom of Speech was threatened by the Bush Administration 10. Credit Card Bill of Rights were passed to protect consumers (You) 11. New tax breaks were given to Small businesses to encourage growth & SBA loans expanded to start new companies 12. Taxes were lowered in 2009 for middle class to get tax breaks 13 Two Female Supreme Justices were appointed by Obama 14. On 9/28/10 republicans blocked passage of the Off-Shore bill (S. 3816) which would have denied tax breaks to any company sending our jobs overseas. Need the Dems to vote it in.

  31. 31

    M.B. has a super inflated ego and can NOT take any criticism.

  32. 32

    BTW; he can't dance and he can't sing.

  33. 33

    Move on… he is a sucky dancer and he can't deal with someone not kissing his ass.

  34. 34

    It seems pretty covenant that he started a tour right after the elimination? And they were giving away tickets on local Colorado radio stations. DWTS is the next Love Boat.

    Bolton is total tool!

  36. pj88 says – reply to this


    I think Bolton should go back to the 90's when he was a Star and suck it up. Yes, Bruno seems to get a little more "controversial" as the seasons go on, but if you can handle the critisim then don't sign on for this. If these "stars" were dancing for charity, then yes by all means they should not be critizied like that.. but they are dancing for their own self satification, money and publicity.. and there is nothing wrong with that.. but be prepared to face the hard truth if you suck, like Bolton (and his music) does.

  37. 37

    what a gangly sap and a sook lolll

  38. 38

    Sometimes the way the judges comment,they are a bit overboard with the critisism. But I think that Micael Bolton is just a big ass cry baby and a grumpy old man. I also would like to see the judges DANCE just once. They are all up there judging the stars and sound like they know what they are talking about but can all 3 of them walk the walk or should I say dance the dance? Put your money where your mouths are judges. Get up on that dance floor and show us what YOU got.

  39. 39

    and you mister bolton should try to conduct yourself like a man and not a chld. i never cared for you, but now i actively dislike you. ICK.

  40. 40

    Michael - Get over it and suck it up as you can't dance, you were horrible and watching you was horrific. Bruno told it how it was and there is no need for an apology. Have you watched yourself dance? Stick to your music and move on….

  41. 41

    A typical has been trying to extend some media attention. He was a HORRIBLE dancer. Get over it., baldy.

  42. 42

    Why do people ask for public apologies? Just because someone says they are sorry, doesn't mean they really are. Does he just need to hear those words to feed his ego? I just seriously hate when people ASK for apologies. What good are they if they're not sincere. Shut up Michael Bolton. You went on a show to be judged and judged you were.

  43. 43

    michael bolton needs to apologize to the world for all the horrendouse music he put out.
