Was Sarah Palin Booed on ‘Dancing with the Stars’?

Sep 28, 2010 9:34am

ABC News’ Huma Khan reports: Sarah Palin appeared on "Dancing with the Stars" to cheer on her daughter but was she the subject of jeering herself?

On the show Monday night, the audience erupted into loud booing as scores for actress Jennifer Grey were announced. Co-host Brooke Burke told audience members to vote for the actress as perplexed contestants in the background look toward the stage for the source of the booing.

As the camera cuts to the stage, co-host Tom Bergeron is seen sitting with "guest ballroom commentator" Palin and her daughter, Piper, leading many to wonder whether the jeers were directed at the former governor.

Bergeron said it wasn’t Palin who spurred the booing, but that audience members felt Grey should’ve gotten a higher score. But Grey got the top scores of the night.

When asked about the booing, executive producer Conrad Green told the Washington Post that if it was aimed at Palin, it would’ve continued once the interview started, "rather than doing it before, and then wimping out."

Watch the video and Bergeron's explanation here and judge for yourself:



UPDATE: The issue was revisited Wednesday night when ABC aired video of the booing incident that the show's hosts said proved Palin was not being booed.
