Victor Ortiz Knocked Out of 'Dancing with the Stars'
"Dancing with the Stars" sent home a low-scoring contestant on Tuesday, April 23. Landing on the bottom of the scoreboard this week following his rumba on Monday night, Victor Ortiz was eliminated in week 6 results show of "DWTS" season 16.
"I had a blast. I made great friends, including you guys, you beautiful people," the boxer said to hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke upon learning his fate. "So at the end of the day it was a heck of an experience and hopefully, these beautiful people will follow me to my next championship bout. ... I'm happy to get this far. I definitely need some dance moves."
Victor wasn't the only one who got a low score of 18 for his individual dance on Monday, as Andy Dick got the same points for his samba. However, it wasn't the funnyman who was in jeopardy with Victor. Sean Lowe found himself in the bottom two based on the combination of judges scores and viewers votes.
Still, Sean was deemed safe and will return next week along with Andy, Kellie Pickler, Aly Raisman, Zendaya Coleman, Jacoby Jones and Ingo Rademacher.
Taking the stage as musical performers that night were British singer Ollie Murs who sang "Troublemaker", and will.i.am who delivered a rendition of his new track "#thatpower".
In other news, Stevie Wonder, whose songs accompanied the contestants' dances on Monday night, said he would love to be part of the show's cast. "I'd like to come back being one of the dancers as well. We've been talking about it a long time, but I'm going to make it a reality," the "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" singer admitted.
