'DWTS' S13 semi-finals eliminationThis season of 'Dancing With the Stars' has its share of controversy. We've had Nipplegate, injuries, accusations of nepotism, dancers feuding with judges, dancers feuding with each other ... Now it's been reported that the strain of last night's semi-finals elimination all proved to be just too much for one dancer.

Each week the dancers go backstage and chat to reporters on the post-show press line, but last night one couple was conspicuously absent. According to E! Online, one half of the eliminated couple "was so upset about [their] elimination from the competition that she was unable to hold it together for interviews."

!!SPOILER ALERT!! If you don't know want to know who was eliminated last night, you might want to stop reading right about now.

'Dancing With the Stars' Week 8 EliminationThis week was the Final Five's last chance to impress the judges before next week's semifinals round on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). But with America helping to steer the decisions, only J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff likely had a restful night's sleep after the season's first double perfect scores.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus again scored the lowest overall total from the judges, just as they had last week. But whereas last week the gap between Grace and David Arquette was only three points, this week there were seven points separating her from the next lowest scorers, Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke.

'Dancing With the Stars'After an emotional performance show, in which Maks lost his cool with Len, it was bound to be a tense elimination on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC). Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his partner, Hope Solo, scored a 20 from the judges, which was better than only one other couple, Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer, who got 19.

Audience votes make up the difference of the vote, obviously, which had to leave Maks and Hope sweating waiting for the final word. We've seen how their fellow contestants felt, many of whom felt he may have crossed the line. Would America agree?

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

'Dancing With the Stars' - 'Week Four' eliminationIn between all those sightings of Cher there was a dance competition going on Monday night on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). And it was a nail-biter, with the incredibly entertaining Carson Kressley coming in dead last with the judges, while Ricki Lake earned the season's first perfect 10s.

Early front-runner Chynna Phillips had a very rough night, reflected in her low scores from the judges, tying her with Chaz Bono and Nancy Grace at one point ahead of Kressley.

Everyone knows Phillips is a stronger dancer than both of them; she just had a very bad night. Would America forgive her?

Did Cher Fans Save Chaz Bono from Elimination on 'DWTS'?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 5th 2011 8:30AM
Lacey Schwimmer and Chaz BonoIt's been a grueling few weeks for 'Dancing With the Stars' contestants and the punishing training schedule has taken its toll on Chaz Bono.

Although he's lost weight and gained confidence on the dance floor, Bono's been suffering from swollen painful ankles, which may go some way to explain why he and Lacey Schwimmer were in last place after their rumba Monday night.

After that performance fans could have expected to see Bono facing elimination last night, but he wasn't. Has he benefited from tactical voting by Cher fans?

!!!SPOILER ALERT!!! If you don't want to know who was eliminated last night, stop reading now.

'Dancing With the Stars' Week 3 Elimination Shocks the Judges (VIDEO)

'Dancing With the Stars' Week 3 ResultsAccording to Len Goodman on the 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC) results show for this third week, "My expectations were that these two couples would be fighting for the final and maybe one of them going home with the mirrorball." He was talking about the two couples left standing in threat of elimination.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

That said, though, neither of them had the highest scores on the previous night. However, they didn't have the lowest scores either. What they clearly lacked was a large enough fan base. Or maybe, as Tom Bergeron suggested, everyone just assumed they were safe.

'DWTS' Backstage Report: Ron Artest Talks About Exiting, Will Chaz and Lacey Dance to a Cher Song?

Tom Bergeron, Brooke Burke Charvet, Peta Murgatroyd, Ron ArtestIt bites having to leave 'Dancing With the Stars,' especially when you enjoy being there as much as Ron Artest did.

But the pro basketball player focused on the positive after host Tom Bergeron announced on last night's results show that Artest and pro partner Peta Murgatroyd would be the first couple to leave Season 13.

Artest is a lesson to us all in having to embrace a change that we might not be so thrilled about having to make.

The couple earned the lowest score on Monday's show and this was Murgatroyd's first year as a pro dancer so she's yet to build a fan base like veterans Derek Hough, Cheryl Burke and Mark Ballas have. That combination apparently proved to be the duo's undoing.

AOL TV was on the post-show press line to talk to Artest and Murgatroyd about their exit and to some of the remaining participants to get their thoughts on what they need to do to stay in the game.

Harry Connick Jr., 'Dancing With the Stars'Last season, audiences were given two nights of performances before making the first cut of the season on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). But ABC wasted no time this season.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

It was a fun night of entertainment, if you didn't think about the upcoming elimination of a contestant to dampen your spirits. LMFAO got Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli up on their desk, dancing to the 'Party Rock Anthem.'

Harry Connick Jr. proved as cool as ever, treating audiences to the title song from his Broadway show, 'On a Clear Day You Can See Forever.' But the fun couldn't last all night, and finally things had to get down to business.
