Dancing with the Stars Elimination: Billy Ray Cyrus, Achy Breaky Feet, Say Goodbye

by at . Comments

As American Idol fans wait in anticipation of tonight's elimination - although, let's face it, Lakisha Jones is a goner - another reality show bid farewell to a famous singer last night.

Not surprisingly, Billy Ray Cyrus was voted off Dancing with the Stars last night.

Booted off a show he said he never really belonged on to begin with, the country singer took his final bow thanking God and Disney for the chance to dance.

"I had a great time. I can't believe a hillbilly like me got to do this," said Cyrus, who was due on the set of his Disney Channel show Hannah Montana, alongside his daughter Miley Cyrus, later today.

"I'm grateful to all the people who helped me, but most especially Karina Smirnoff, my beautiful partner. She put up with my big ol' butt and feet."

While Billy Ray accepted his fate, others on the show were a bit more insane sensitive.

"I can't believe he's going to be gone," said Apolo Ohno's pro-dancer partner Julianne Hough, wiping away tears. "It gets harder as all these people leave."

Even Laila Ali shed a few tears, but not before she said, "I intend to be standing on this stage when everyone is gone."

Next up, Cyrus is off to work with Heather Locklear on Hannah Montana. "From one beautiful girl to another," he said with a smile. "From Karina to Heather. What more can you ask for?"
