Lord … Tyra Banks has pulled a Steve Harvey. Barely a month into her new gig as host of “Dancing With The Stars” and she’s already announced the wrong pair for elimination.
On Monday night during the live 2-hour elimination show Banks stated Anne Heche and partner Keo Motsepe, along with NFL star Vernon Davis and dancer Peta Murgatroyd, were in the bottom two. Moments later, the 46-year-old host confirmed there had been an error, saying Davis and Murgatroyd were actually safe but that Monica Aldama of “Cheer” and partner Val Chmerkovskiy could be going home.
“There has been an error in our control room, but we are making it happen. This is live TV, right? This is the craziness of live TV,” she said.
Banks then said the cards were wrong before it was finally revealed that Anne Heche and Keo Motsepe were getting the boot.
“This is live TV. I was reading my cards but my cards were wrong,” she said.
Whew Chile … it was all kinds of confusing and of course Twitter went in.

DWTS dancer Val Chmerkovskiy also compared Banks to Steve Harvey when he tweeted, “Just got Steve Harvey’d.”

You recall Steve famously announced the wrong Miss Universe winner back in 2015.
Banks later took to Twitter and wrote, “Wowzers. Live TV. Wrong name on cards. So challenging to deal with moments like these. But we power through.”
