Finishing second from the bottom on the scoreboard, Lil' Romeo has to quit the show since voters are more in favor of injured Ralph Macchio.
Lil' Romeo had to hang his dancing shoes on "Dancing with the Stars". He was eliminated on Tuesday's (May 10) result show after finishing second from the bottom on the scoreboard after Monday's performance night.
Romeo was in jeopardy along with Ralph Macchio and Chelsea Kane (aka Chelsea Staub), who actually got the highest score the previous night. Ralph and Chelsea were later announced safe, despite the fact that the former got the lowest total score from judges on Monday. He likely won the heart of audience with his effort to dance despite his injured leg.
Romeo said he had expected this, "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." He added, "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."
Taking the stage as musical performers were Adele, Michael Bolton and Delta Goodrem. Michael and Delta sang a duet of "I'm Not Ready" from Bolton's upcoming album, "Gems: The Duets Collection".
