Ty Murray Eliminated from Dancing with the Stars

by at . Comments

It may have come a week later than many fans were hoping, but Ty Murray was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars last night.

And the rodeo stalwart seemed psyched about it.

“I can’t tell you how happy I am,” Murray said after the show, laughing. “I don’t have to learn any more dances.”

Of course, this doesn't mean Jewel's husband regrets trading in his chaps for sequins.

“The whole reason I did this show is because it was nice for cowboys to be represented in something so pop culture, and this show did in spades,” Murray said. “For me to be able to do this is a fantastic opportunity. You don’t realize how big something like this is until you’re on a show that 25 million people watch.”

This leaves a trio of celebs remaining to compete in the finals next week. Click on a shot of each of them performing during the semifinals below:

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
