'Dancing with the Stars' Recap: Gavin DeGraw Eliminated

ABC/ADAM TAYLOR(LOS ANGELES) -- After flirting with elimination earlier in the season, Gavin DeGraw finally got the hook on ABC's Dancing with the Stars Tuesday night.

The pop musician and his partner, Karina Smirnoff, lost the first "dance duel" of the season to Jaleel White and Kym Johnson. Because they were in the bottom two, each couple was forced to simultaneously dance the cha cha cha to the Lady Gaga hit "The Edge of Glory."

The judges were complimentary of both celebrities, but in a unanimous vote, they saved White over DeGraw.

Afterward, DeGraw said he had a great mentor in Smirnoff and added that his experience in the ballroom was "awesome."

DeGraw was the lowest-scoring celebrity on this week's Latin-flavored performance show, with judge Len Goodman telling him his samba was more like a "shamba."

DeGraw had been in the bottom two twice prior to Tuesday night.

The musical guests on the results show were Train, who performed their latest hit "Drive By," and Selena Gomez, who delivered a live rendition of her single "Hit the Lights."

Next Monday night on Dancing with the Stars, the eight remaining celebrities will dance to live performances by Motown artists including The Temptations, Smokey Robinson and Martha Reeves.

Update: Gavin DeGraw Recovering after New York City Attack

RCA Music Group(NEW YORK) -- Pop star Gavin DeGraw is in stable condition after an attack that left him with a concussion, broken nose and several cuts to the face.

The "Chariot" singer was beaten by a group of men on New York City's Lower East Side early Sunday morning, and was then hit by a taxi as he stumbled away, according to police sources.

Degraw, 34, had been drinking with friends before the attack. He was accosted between 3:50 and 4:20 a.m. at East 6th Street and 1st Avenue, the police sources said.

After breaking his nose and scratching his face, the perpetrators fled, and Degraw kept walking. He ended up at 19th Street and 1st Avenue, where he was struck by a cab but not seriously injured. He was then taken to the emergency room at nearby Bellevue Hospital.

Degraw remains in the hospital. His publicist, Fran Curtis, told ABC News today that the singer is "currently recovering and in stable condition."

"He suffers from a concussion, broken nose, black eyes, cuts and bruises," Curtis said in an email statement. "The police are conducting an investigation of the attack. "We have no information yet regarding his upcoming concert dates and promotion for his new album," she added.

Degraw has spent the summer opening for rock bands Maroon 5 and Train. His fifth album, "Sweeter," is due in stores Sept. 20.

An upstate New York native, Degraw currently lives in Manhattan and co-owns the National Underground bar, which is located six blocks south of where he was attacked.
