NFL star Chad Ochocinco and his partner Cheryl Burke were eliminated on Tuesday’s “Dancing with the Stars” results show. He received the lowest combined score of judges’ points and viewers’ votes.

IMO the guy is a class act! He seems to respect the show and his partner! He may run his mouth like there’s no tomorrow in the NFL, but on DWTS he was almost humble..we didn’t see much of that cocky guy we see on the football field! He respects dancing, he realizes it’s a hard thing to pull off!

His dances progressed, even if not on the level as the others, at least the final 3. I think the reason why they progressed is cuz he actually TRIED hard and even more than trying, he WORKED hard! You have to respect that! Like the saying goes, it’s not how many times you fall down, it’s how many times you pick yourself back up and try harder!

He got smacked around a little by the judges early on and it would have been very easy for a millionaire guy like him to say “F this!! I’m out!” so if you’re gonna rip on the “O” man, at least give him credit where it’s due!

“This was awesome,” Ochocinco said. “I enjoyed the journey. I got some great criticism. I met some awesome people, including the beautiful Cheryl Burke. “I’ve already won.”

When Erin and Chad were revealed to be in the bottom two, head judge Len Goodman told them that in previous seasons they both would have made it to the final round of competition. “This is the highest standard that we’ve ever had.” he said.

Chad will go back to being an awesome receiver and put his dancing shoes away. At least for now..he says he’ll be back as a dancing pro! I’m sure he was joking, but with him, you never know!

Singer Nicole Scherzinger, Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek and Sportscaster Erin Andrews will dance for the show’s mirrorball trophy on Monday. The winner will be declared and will receive the mirrorball trophy the next night.
