It wasn't a question of whether comic D.L. Hughley would be eliminated on "Dancing with the Stars" this season, but when.
That moment came on Tuesday night when Hughley learned that he was the fourth celebrity out of the ABC series. He's struggled throughout the competition, and his battles with judge Len Goodman over how he was being criticized became an early storyline this season.
Hughley started to show signs of life last week after delivering a strong foxtrot, but his tepid tango on Monday sealed his fate.
His elimination was good news for boxer Victor Ortiz, who found himself in the bottom two for the fourth time this season. Ortiz gets to last another round, but how long will his luck hold out?
Watch the video above to hear from Hughley and pro partner Cheryl Burke about his time on the show and his thoughts on Goodman. Let us know what you think about last night's elimination in the comments.
