Katherine Jenkins
ELIMINATED (2nd Place)

Pro Partner: Mark Ballas

About Her: Welsh pop-opera singer Katherine Jenkins, known on set as "The Sexy Soprano," has sold more than 7 million albums since 2004. The 31-year-old blonde bombshell, who has performed for the Queen and other dignitaries around the world, is winning over audiences with her razor-sharp precision and sweet demeanor on DWTS.

Why She Was Cut: Even though the blonde beauty consistently exhibited elegance and discipline throughout the season, she fell short of winning the competition, which she referred to as "an absolute dream." Even though she didn't win the Mirror Ball Trophy, she did win the affection of the judges who praised her final dance unanimously. "You truly are one of the greatest competitors we've ever had," said Bruno Tonioli after her final performance, which earned her and Mark a perfect 30. Jenkins accepted her loss with grace and finished off her emotional farewell with kudos for her rival. "Well done, Donald -- we love you!"
