'Dancing with the Stars' has sent home real-life couple Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough who stumbled in their cha cha cha performance.
Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough have been eliminated from "Dancing with the Stars" on Tuesday, April 28, leaving five to compete in the show. The real life couple was in the bottom two along with Melissa Rycroft and Toni Dovolani who missed Monday's performance due to injury.
The axing of Chuck and Julianne was unexpected for they scored 9-9-8 which total to 26 out of 30 with their cha cha cha. Melissa and Tony, on the other hand, were judged based on the rehearsal footage of their Jive and scored 21 out of 30. But apparently the audience favor in the latter couple and vote them to be back next week.
Julianne has previously said that she will be taking a break from the show after this to concentrate on her music career. "I will be taking next season off," she said. "I wasn't planning to come back this season because I wanted to focus on my music. But I went back and it's been so much fun to dance with my good friend who happens to be my boyfriend."
Highlights from the result show are Robin Thicke's performance of "When I Get You Alone" and "Sidestep" which were accompanied by dancers, and also the professional dancers' competition which was narrowed down to Genya Mazo, Afton DelGrosso, Mayo Alanen and Anna Demidova.
