First Celeb Gets The Boot On ‘Dancing’

March 28, 2012 by staff 

First Celeb Gets The Boot On ‘Dancing’, Just two weeks in, “Dancing with the Stars” has already made headlines for a hunky competitor (William Levy) and a surprising leaderboard frontrunner (Katherine Jenkins), but one celebrity took the spotlight on Tuesday for the wrong reasons – their elimination from the competition.

Martina Navratilova conquered center court, but the tennis champion couldn’t master the ballroom, and on Tuesday night, she was eliminated from Season 14′s competition, taking professional dancer Tony Dovolani out too.

Gavin DeGraw quickly rushed to Martina’s side after she was given the news (he and Karina Smirnoff were part of the Bottom 2 pairs), and whispered into her ear, “It was an honor to be on this stage with you.”

Speaking to the show hosts, Martina said her time on the show was enjoyable.

“It was an amazing experience,” she said. “I just wish it had lasted longer. I gave it everything I had, but I blew it yesterday, and you know it cost me, unfortunately. Hopefully I get to do the jive the last week here. I look forward to coming back and I wish everybody great luck.”

With no previous dance training, the athlete had hoped to beat at least one of the celebs who had some ballroom experience.
