Dancing With the Stars' elimination show last night saw comedian and actor Andy Dick sent home from the competition. Although Andy's personality was able to keep him alive despite subpar dance abilities, last night was the end of the road for him and pro partner Sharna Burgess.

The three dancers who had been at risk of elimination after the votes were counted were Dick, Ingo Rademacher and Baltimore Raven Jacoby Jones. Ultimately it was Dick, who was only awarded 17 points from the judges on Monday, that was eliminated. “It’s been the best thing, and I thank everyone here,” Dick stated. “It’s been a wonderful ride.”

The night included a moving tribute to professional ballroom dancer Adriann Haslet-Davis, a Boston Marathon bombing victim who lost her leg in the blast. Her husband, who recently returned from a stint in Afghanistan, was right beside her when the bomb went off four feet from their spot near the marathon's finish line. Boston native Aly Raisman tweeted after the show, “Adrianne is an inspiration… Couldn't hold back tears watching that piece. She is so amazing for such a positive attitude! #bostonstrong.”

Host Tom Bergeron announced that Dancing With the Stars would follow Haslet-Davis' recovery as she works to build her strength to walk, and one day dance, with a prosthetic leg. The show also plans to have her choreograph on the show and perform once she's ready.
