During the playoff portion of the show, the new host announced “Cheer” coach Monica Aldama and professional partner Val Chmerkovskiy as safe and they were cleared out.
But later she had to correct herself and asked the couple to return to face possible elimination.
“There was an error in our control room, but we’re getting there,” Banks said. “It’s live TV, isn’t it?” This is the madness of live television. ”
Eventually, Aldama and Chmerkovskiy were declared completely safe from elimination this week, while the other couple in the bottom two, Anne Heche and her dance partner Keo Motsepe, were sent home.
“Wowzers. Live TV. Wrong name on the cards, ”Banks tweeted. “So hard to deal with times like these. But we are successful. ”
Banks replaced longtime host Tom Bergeron after ABC chose not to bring him back with Erin Andrews this season.
