Singer Chynna Phillips was voted off Dancing With the Stars Tuesday.

She and partner Tony Dovolani had been at the top of the leaderboard in the past, and were considered by some to be among the favorites this fall.

One clunker of a performance did them in, though, and the former Wilson Phillips member obviously is disappointed having to exit the competition.

If you can even call it that.

"It really does come down to the votes," Phillips said. "And that's kind of sad because it's supposed to be a dance competition, but it's actually a popularity contest."

"You know, you have to have a little bit of faith that there are people out there who are truly voting for their favorite dance, not their favorite person, because it is a dance competition and people are working really hard."

"It looks to me like that keeps getting undermined."

Maybe. Kristin Cavallari's elimination in week three left us scratching our heads. On the flip side, Phillips' score - unlike K-Cavs' - was among the lowest Monday.

What do you think? Did Chynna deserve to go home?

Chynna Phillips took us on a trip down memory lane last night.

With week three of Dancing With the Stars' fall season dedicated to a defining year in each contestant's life, Chynna dedicated her performance to 1990, the year she scored a mammoth pop music hit with Wilson Phillips' "Hold On."

Chynna didn't move us quite as much as the story of J.R. Martinez (how could anyone), but watching her dance to her own song was pretty fun, and her moves were good enough to land her in a tie with J.R., one point behind Ricki Lake.

Chaz Bono stood tall and held his own, David Arquette showed that his life is more under control than people thought and Kristin Cavallari sizzled.

None could hold a handle to J.R. Martinez or Chynna Phillips, however.

The Iraq War hero/soap opera star and the former Wilson Phillips member tied atop the scoreboard on Monday's Dancing With the Stars season premiere.

J.R.'s Viennese waltz showed that he's got the hips to match his courage (so to speak), while the judges gushed over Chynna's poise and talent.

Watch the performances that netted them 22 points each below!

Chaz Bono's joining the Dancing With the Stars cast gave the show major publicity, but it wasn't just done as a stunt or a favor to the LGBT community.

Based on what we know of past seasons and those who have made long runs on the show, Chaz - if he can dance at all - could be among the favorites.

Below, THG breaks down the prospects for the man formerly known as Chastity Bono (with girlfriend Jennifer Ella, below) and the rest of the dancers ...

Favorites: David Arquette, Chaz Bono, Ron Artest, Hope Solo, Ricki Lake

If anyone has the notoriety that they can utilize to gain interest and build fan support, it's Bono, who will be paired with a female professional dancer.

David Arquette is probably the show's second biggest "get," especially after his separation from wife Courteney Cox and subsequent bizarre behavior.

We don't know if either one can dance, admittedly. But assuming there's any kind of rhythm there, each could go on fairly sustained runs this fall.
