(LOS ANGELES) -- Comedian Margaret Cho and pro partner Louis Van Amstel were voted off ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Tuesday night. The pair received the lowest combined number of viewer and judges votes for a samba routine they performed on Monday set to Barry Manilow's “Copacabana.”
After getting the bad news, Cho told co-host Brooke Burke the judges were hard on her because she believed they viewed her as a real dancer, and she appreciated that. The comic said she was thankful for the opportunity. Van Amstel said he loved Cho and their “journey” wasn’t finished. Cho shed tears as she danced slowly with Van Amstel while the show’s credits rolled.
The Dancing with the Stars competition continues next Monday at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on ABC.
