Carson Kressley Eliminated From Dancing with the Stars

As entertaining as he may be, Carson Kressley was axed from Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday night. He joins the likes of Elisabetta Canalis and Metta World Peace.

On Monday night, the lowest scoring celebs were Kressley, Chaz Bono and Nancy Grace. They've all been struggling to hang in there each week, so Carson's booting is not really a surprise.

So the elimination show started off with a really risqué Madonna Like a Virgin segment. There was a bunch of gyrating. From there, the guest appearance of the night was Kelly Clarkson, who took the stage to promote her latest single, Mr. Know It All.

It's from her upcoming album, Stronger. She came back later to "blow the roof off this place" with her hit, Walk Away. Tom Bergeron suggested she compete on DWTS. Kelly said "it would be a comedy" if she did. Tom said, "works for us."

The Band Perry also made an appearance, prompting millions of Americans to Google, "who is The Band Perry?"

Then, of course, came the elimination. And Kressley just didn't make the cut. But he had a pretty positive outlook on the
whole thing:

"Thank you to everybody involved with Dancing with the Stars," Kressley, said. "First of all to [Anna Trebunskaya], who has been the most amazing, patient, kind, wonderful partner. [Thanks to] my cast mates, to the judges, to the producers, to my friends, family, fans, this has been pure joy for me. I hope I could make people smile and laugh and have a great time."

Cressley also said he would be back "every week, cheering for my cast mates!"

So far, Ricki Lake has been a hit on the show, but her Monday night performance didn't get the best reviews. Slightly off rhythm and just not as energetic as her other performances, she's definitely done better.

Aside from Carson, the dudes are dominating. JR Martinez is doing well, as is Rob Kardashian. Rob might actually save the Kardashian name on Dancing with the Stars. David Arquette's performances have been consistently decent. Chaz, on the other hand, is just okay. His performances are getting him by, and everyone loves Chaz, but in the end, he's just not as good as some of the others.

Nancy Grace may be the next to go. Her performances have been lackluster. Points for keeping her boob in her dress this time, though.
