Motown Night on Dancing with the Stars may have provided Jaleel White and Kym Johnson's with their best week in the ballroom, but it left two other teams battling out to save their spot in the competition.
This week, Disney star Roshon Fegan and music legend Gladys Knight were the two contestants with the lowest combination of scores and votes. When it came down to the dance duel -- which was a jive -- the 67-year-old singer and her partner Tristan MacManus were considerably less energetic than Fegan and his pro, Chelsie Hightower.
After their jive-off, judge Carrie Ann Inaba chose to save Knight, but Bruno Tonioli and head judge Len Goodman thought it was time for Gladys to go. Tonioli was heartbroken to have to choose, comparing it a bit dramatically to Sophie's Choice.
But Knight wasn't too disappointed by being eliminated from the dance show. "I am just so amazed at this journey. It's been absolutely extraordinary. I learned so many things ... I'm just overjoyed," she said.
Knight praised her fellow dancers, saying they're the best in the show's history. "They are already stepping up way, way, way beyond anything that's ever been on this show."
The remaining contestants competing for the mirror ball trophy are: Donald Driver, Roshon Fegan, Melissa Gilbert, Katherine Jenkins, William Levy, Maria Menounos and Jaleel White.
