Romeo and Chelsie Hightower Voted Off 'Dancing with the Stars' 

Bob D'Amico/ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Romeo and Chelsie Hightower were one of the favorite couples on Dancing With the Stars this season, but they just missed their chance at being in the final four when they were eliminated on Tuesday's results show.

"I'm not surprised because the competition in here, it could be anybody could go at any time. But we went out with a bang," Romeo said after the results were announced. "This show has changed my life forever. I was terrified of dancing. I didn't dance at my own prom. I turned down a lot of movies because I was terrified of dancing ... I think I showed kids anything is possible if you try."

Throughout the season, judges had praised Romeo's dramatic improvement and commitment to the routines, and the actor and entertainer had received impressive scores.

Dancing with the Stars: Chelsea Kane and Romeo Share the Lead

ABC, Inc.(LOS ANGELES) -- Disney star Chelsea Kane and actor/singer Romeo each grabbed a share of the lead on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Monday night, with both celebrities and their respective partners earning this season's first perfect scores of ten, from judge Carrie Ann Inaba, on “Guilty Pleasures” night.  The celebrities danced to "guilty pleasure" songs they like but are ashamed to admit they do.  Speaking of which, host Tom Bergeron embarrassed judge Bruno Tonioli by claiming that his favorite guilty pleasure was Elton John's I'm Still Standing video, in which a much younger, and scantily-clad, Tonioli appeared as a dancer.

Romeo and partner Chelsie Hightower earned a total score of 28 out of 30 for a waltz that Inaba described as magical.  Chelsea Kane and pro partner Mark Ballas also earned a total score of 28 out of 30 for a quickstep that judge Bruno Tonioli said was so bright and luminous, he was getting a sun tan.

WWE star Chris Jericho and partner Cheryl Burke are at the bottom of the pack with a total score of 22 out of 30 after a waltz that Bruno said was a bit clumsy.

The band Hanson kicked off Guilty Pleasures night with a performance of their 1997 hit MmmBop.  During and coming out of commercial breaks, Hanson performed several more so-called guilty pleasures, including Lionel Richie's Hello, Billy Ray Cyrus’ Achy Breaky Heart, Vanilla Ice's Ice Ice Baby and Quiet Riot's Cum on Feel the Noize.

Another couple will be voted off Tuesday night on the Dancing with the Stars results show, which begins at 9 p.m. Eastern.  The show will also feature musical performances by NKOTBSB and ousted American Idol singer Pia Toscano.  New Kids on the Block/Backstreet Boys will perform Don’t Turn Out the Lights and a two-song medley of their hits Step by Step and I Want It That Way.  Pia Toscano will sing I’ll Stand by You while her rumored “close friend,” Mark Ballas, dances with Karina Smirnoff.

Preceding the results show at 8 p.m. ET will be a one-hour live special entitled, Dancing with the Stars: The Road to the Finals.  Hanson will appear for a second consecutive night when they perform their new song Give a Little during the special.  Former American Idol finalist Constantine Maroulis and his cast mates from the Broadway musical Rock of Ages will also perform on the special.
