David Alan Grier may have to take his dancing back to Broadway, because the comedian was eliminated from 'Dancing With the Stars.'
The 53-year-old was bounced from the ballroom Tuesday despite having improved his score by two points during the last-chance dance-off. Grier and professional partner Kym Johnson earned 24 points out of 30 for their Viennese Waltz Tuesday, beating Lawrence Taylor in the dance-off duel by four points. Judges praised the pair's improvement, but fans failed to keep the couple in the competition. Viewer votes are combined with judges' scores to determine which couple is eliminated each week. Fans apparently spared the show's lowest scorer, reality star Steve-O, from elimination. He and professional partner Lacey Schwimmer earned just 18 points for their pantomime-inspired Viennese Waltz Monday, but escaped Tuesday's dance-off.
