After perfect performances saw J.R. Martinez cement his frontrunner status on Dancing With the Stars, the question was who would join him in the final four.
With J.R. amassing a huge lead and fan support, Ricki Lake remaining a virtual lock (no way she'd be out after just one off week that wasn't even that off, and with Derek Hough as a partner), it came down to these three contestants ...
Was last night the end of the line for Hope, Nancy, or Rob?
Hope Solo continues to improve, but would it be fast enough for fans as well as the judges' liking? Ditto Rob Kardashian ... and could Nancy Grace pull off an upset?
Bristol Palin made the finals of this program, which has seen many worthy dancers set home prematurely, so you never know. Which one of them got the heave-ho?
Follow the jump to find out here ...Nancy Grace, despite a long and successful run, is now headed home.
No one who even half-follows the show can be surprised at that outcome.
As Len predicted Monday night after she performed, it was Cinderella time for the HLN host, who far exceeded expectations (including her own) by making it this far.
"I am so proud, but I really cannot take the credit. It's been all Tristan, from the get-go," she said of partner Tristan MacManus. "And the whole crew at DWTS, my family taking care of my twins so I could dance, all of you - and especially to you, Tristan."
Fond memories of Nancy Grace DWTS performances past.
"We've had a blast," the Irish dance pro said, seconding Grace. "We'd just like to thank everybody. Thanks for being so welcoming to me, and also to Nancy."
"It's the support we get from you all that really pushes us to do this. It's not about being the best, it's about doing our best, and I think that's what we did."
Talk about exiting with - pardon the pun - grace. Kudos, Nancy and Tristan.
Did Nancy Grace deserve to be voted off Dancing With the Stars?
