RECAP: Gavin DeGraw Leaves 'DWTS' After Dance Duel
"Chariot" singer Gavin DeGraw was eliminated from Tuesday's episode of Dancing with the Stars after a new twist was introduced to the popular ABC show — a dance-off between the lowest-scoring contestants. That turned out to be DeGraw and former Family Matters star Jaleel White, aided by their pro dancing partners Karina Smirnoff and Kym Johnson.
The judges unanimously decided that DeGraw was the worst, which did not seem to surprise many people — not even DeGraw himself. He had become a regular in the bottom two spot, though highlights of this season so far include the gentlemanly hand he lent to Melissa Gilbert last week, when she suffered a concussion and had to be carried out of the studio.
Selena Gomez and Train both performed on DWTS, going up against Gomez's boyfriend Justin Bieber, who guest-performed on NBC's The Voice. Also, Maria Menounos and Derek Hough re-created their infamous samba from Monday night, but instead of kissing each other, Hough planted one on judge Carrie Ann Inaba.
