This is one time Belinda Carlisle and partner Jonathan Roberts had hoped not to come in first: They became the first casualty of Dancing with the Stars' eighth season.
They landed in the bottom two alongside Steve Wozniak and his partner Karina Smirnoff, who were at the bottom of the leader board after two weeks of competition.
In a DWTS first, the two couples went toe-to-toe in a dance-off that the judges scored. The new scores were then combined with viewers’ votes - which account for 50 percent of the couples’ scores - from the first two weeks of dancing.
Their routine fell apart, and off they went.
“I had a great time,” a disappointed Carlisle said in her farewell speech, adding, “I wish I could have done better for Jonathan, because he’s a great teacher.”
Oh well. Someone had to go first. This defied our official odds somewhat, but wasn't a huge shock. Next up for remaining couples: the fox trot or the samba.
Can an inept Steve Wozniak possibly last another week? Will Steve-O stay healthy? Can anyone stop Gilles Marini, Shawn Johnson and Melissa Rycroft?
