    Despite consistently getting top scores from the judges, actress and singer Brandy and her professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, were eliminated in the last week of "Dancing With the Stars" before the final. "I don't know how to feel right now," Brandy said after the results were announced Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2010. "I haven't processed this."

    He is a football legend, but as a dancer, Kurt Warner has been cut from "Dancing With the Stars." The former NFL quarterback, shown here during the show's first week with partner Anna Trebunskaya, received nothing but 8s from the judges for two dances in his final week. The combined score of 54 placed him fourth, topping only Bristol Palin, not enough when combined with the viewers' verdict. Warner, hailed as "a true gentleman" by show judge Bruno Tonioli, received a standing ovation and a chant of "MVP" from the audience before his departure. He exchanged hugs with his competitors and noted, "I learned a long time ago that life isn't always about winning and losing competitions. It's about relationships."

    A 10 and three 9s from the "Dancing With the Stars" judges in the show's seventh week was not enough to save former NBA star Rick Fox from getting voted off. Fox, shown here in the show's first week of competition, won frequent compliments from the judges despite towering over his partner, Cheryl Burke. Upon receiving word of his departure, Fox, sporting a green suit, smiled and hugged Burke, as well as fellow competitor Kyle Massey and Massey's dance partner, who both learned in the show's final moments that they would dance on. "Cheryl, amazing job working with a tall, jolly, green giant," Fox told Burke after getting the ax. "What I'll take out of this competition," Fox added later in a taped segment, "is a friendship with Cheryl and, hopefully, 15 to 20 new dance moves."

    Audrina Patridge, who entered the limelight via the reality show, "The Hills," was voted off "Dancing With the Stars" despite scoring a combined 32 from the three judges, the second-highest total of the show's sixth week. Throughout the competition, the judges consistently gave Patridge -- shown here with partner Tony Dovolani during the season's first week -- high marks for her dancing but sometimes said her performances lacked character. "I just know that I had so much fun, this entire experience," she said upon learning her fate. "I felt like I was really pushing it and trying to give more character, but I guess I couldn't tap into that."

    Florence Henderson was the fifth person voted off the current season of "Dancing With the Stars," despite receiving straight sevens from the judges for her final dance, a tango to the theme song of "The Brady Bunch," the TV show that brought her greatest fame. Here, Henderson is shown dancing with her partner, Corky Ballas, in the show's first week of competition. Upon being voted off, Henderson smiled and kissed Ballas. "I've loved this show since it began," she said after learning her fate. "I hope I've inspired people to get up off their behinds and live and dance and enjoy life."

    We no longer have a "Situation" -- at least not on "Dancing With the Stars." "Jersey Shore" star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, shown here dancing with partner Karina Smirnoff during the show's first week of competition, has been voted off after dismal scores in the show's fourth week. After learning he would be leaving the show, "The Situation" waved his fist in front of his body, took a bow and waved to the crowd. His technical score of 12 and performance score of 16 for his Argentine tango amounted to the fourth week's overall lowest score. "I said, 'You know what, if I get eliminated today, I put it all on the floor last night,'" Sorrentino said. "So if it was [to be], I bow gracefully." He added, "'Dancing With the Stars,' you definitely got to see the whole situation."

    Comedian Margaret Cho, 41, cried upon becoming the third person voted off "Dancing With the Stars" after her week 3 samba garnered a score of 18, the lowest total of the week. Cho, an advocate for equal rights, performed in a fringy dress bearing the colors of a gay pride flag. "I praise you for waving the rainbow flag," judge Bruno Tonioli told her after her performance, "but I think you lost your way out of the Copa. You had too many drinks, my darling." Upon being voted out, perhaps alluding to the poor reviews of her intentionally comic dance from week 1, pictured above, Cho said, "I thought the judges were really hard on me, but I think you were hard on me because you could see I am a dancer for real."

    Michael Bolton, 57, was the second star voted off this year's "Dancing With the Stars" on Sept. 28, 2010, after his "jive" dance to the song "Hound Dog" bombed, receiving a score of 12 out of 30 and a verbal pan from one judge that Bolton called "inappropriate and disrespectful." Here, Bolton is shown dancing Sept. 20 with his partner, Chelsie Hightower. "Yeah, I'm disappointed," Bolton said after the vote was revealed. "Chelsea's been awesome and I wanted her to go on and on." Of the professional dancers who partner with celebrities on the show, he said: "These are great people, gracious people and you become attached to them." Hightower reciprocated the compliment: "It's been an honor to work with you," she said, "and I really am so proud of you."

  • Hasselhoff Voted Off 'DWTS'

    David Hasselhoff and Kym Johnson, were the first couple voted off this season of "Dancing With the Stars." Despite his cult-following from "Baywatch" and "Knight Rider, "The Hoff" and his professional partner had the lowest combined judges' scores and public votes for their cha-cha to Tom Jones' "Sex Bomb" Monday night. "It's been a great ride," he said. "I feel bad for Kym because she worked hard trying to get me where I was going."
