OTRC: Nancy Grace defends 'DWTS' week 7 performance after low scores

Nancy Grace talks to OnTheRedCarpet.com after the October 31 episode of 'Dancing With The Stars.'

Nancy Grace remains optimistic after securing the bottom spot for her performance in week 7 of "Dancing with the Stars."

The 51-year-old television host and legal expert and partner Tristan MacManus, 29, received a score of 21 out of 30 from the judges for their spooky Jive in week 7 of ABC's hit celebrity ballroom dancing series (read recap). The pair earned the lowest score of the evening.

"I think that the viewers will decided if they liked our dance or not, because I loved our dance," Grace told OnTheRedCarpet.com after the performance. "I loved it. I thought the jive was fantastic, it was fun, it was spirited. The footsteps were very, very intricate - I thought overall our dance was great."

Grace added that her partner MacManus deserves some credit.

"The jive was so fun - Tristan choreographed a fantastic dance," Grace added. "I thought it was executed very well."

The six couples were split into teams of three to perform two group dances, and were a part of either "Team Tango" or "Team Paso Doble." David Arquette, Nancy Grace and J.R. Martinez scored 23 for their team Tango, and Lake, Hope Solo and Rob Kardashian scored a 26 for their team Paso Doble.

The six remaining pairs return on Tuesday, November 2, for an elimination episode, during which the seventh couple is expected to be sent packing.
