tom bergeron george lopez  Dancing With the Stars: Tom Bergeron did mock Bolton, though not with dance

Call it wishful thinking, but we really thought Tom Bergeron‘s preemptive apology for mocking Michael Bolton on “Lopez Tonight” was for some sort of poorly choreographed opening montage.

Alas, it was not. But it was still a fun little dig. The “Dancing With the Stars” host asked viewers to call in votes for what color tie Lopez should wear for the broadcast and said it was the same method that helped his series get rid of Michael Bolton.

Ba-dum-chhh. Here’s the clip in full, but please don’t call in. The episode already aired, and experience tells us not to trust 555 numbers.

For the full Bergeron — which, by the way, is the name of a series we’re pitching to ABC — check out his full interview on Lopez, which is full of deliciously crude humor and some candid analysis of Bolton-gate:
