Lil’ Kim Takes Her Last Dance on ‘DWTS’

It’s time for the jump off. Lil’ Kim became the latest contestant eliminated from ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” on Tuesday.

“I think this is one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever experienced in my life,” a teary-eyed Kim said to a standing crowd. “I think I brought different viewers [to the show]. I know people who’ve never watched the show and they watch the show [now].”

Even the program’s co-host Tom Bergeron was shocked by the news. “There was a real shock in this room that I announced [your] name… I loved watching you dance.”

Derek Hough expressed his admiration for his dance partner over the last nine weeks. “I love this girl so much and she has been one of my favorites by far,” he gushed. “She is the most amazing person, amazing soul, amazing spirit, and of course, amazing dancer and I love you so much.”

“Will you please grace us with your bionic booty one more time?” Bergeron asked as Hough spun his partner one final time on the dancefloor.

The Queen Bee was one-week shy of making the semi-finals. She came into the results show with the week’s second lowest score: 52 points out of 60.
