Nice exit interview with Gladys Knight on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and here's the top of it. Jimmy asks the obvious question: Was it fair to have a dance-off with someone half a century younger than she? (She laughs, shrugs it off, says it's all good.)  He also notes the irony of a vote-off in Motown week for a legendary Motown figure. . .she laughs. And, he accurately notes, she's one of the few stars that actually ever appeared on the show. Laughs again . . . But really, this is too bad. She was good, deserved a longer run, and in fact was far and away the biggest star of this season and of many seasons. And so it goes. . .
