The latest celebrity off 'DWTS' is ...

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.

    Len is so racist no matter what. He did not want to admit Zendia is a good dancer. He always love Dereck to win no matter what partners he got. I was very serprsed he gave kelly 10 score. I have been watching him long time ago he has a problem with black dancers. I hope DWT's kick him out. I cannot stand him anymore.

      Silly question, I am not pretending to be a celebrity.
      Currently there are 3 stories in this section on KK, is she the most important celebrity? I'm using the term celebrity since there is nothing else to call her that isn't derogatory or a lie.
      CNN what are you doing? You will slip in obscurity if don't start becoming relevant!

    Is DWTS the only show that you guys are recapping? Really? There is no other show worth mentioning? Game of Thrones, perhaps? The Voice? What is going on, the last 5 recaps are DWTS? And while I'm at: Kim Kardashian is not a real celebrity; at any given time there are 2-3 stories about her! Is this E! or CNN?
