It's back to the radio studio for "Psycho" Mike Catherwood, who along with partner Lacey Schwimmer, failed to make an impression with the judges - or voters.

Lasting for at least another week were Williams, who earned 31 points, and boxing legend Sugar Ray, who had 34. Do you think the voters made the right call?

Mike's departure shouldn't change much for the list of favorites this season, or for the couples who narrowly survived this week. But with him gone, you tell us:

Who do you think will win it all?
