"Dancing with the Stars": Christina Milian Eliminated

Oct 15 2013, 4:24am CDT | by ABC News Radio

ABC/Craig Sjodin(LOS ANGELES) -- Singer Christina Milian and partner Mark Ballas were eliminated on Monday night’s installment of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, despite receiving the first “10” of the season.

The ballroom audience booed when Milian’s name was announced, and many looked stunned.  Milian said she was “shocked” by the outcome./>/>

“I wasn’t expecting that, but you know what, I think that we had the best performance tonight that we’ve had thus far,” she added.

Ballas said he was proud of Milian’s accomplishment on the dance floor. />/>

“You know, we worked really hard.  She did great...and we just went out with a bang,” he said.

Milian was tied with actor Corbin Bleu for the highest score after Monday night’s performances, but elimination is determined by combining the judges’ scores from Monday with viewer votes from the previous week.  As a result, Milian and actress Leah Remini, who was the lowest scorer on Monday, were in the bottom two and both were in jeopardy of being eliminated.

Monday’s show was dedicated to the most memorable year of each star’s life.  Here’s a rundown of Monday’s performances:

Christina Milian: The singer’s sassy cha cha cha with partner Mark Ballas recalled 2010 -- the year she gave birth to her daughter and divorced her husband after learning he was cheating on her.  The judges liked the routine so much that head judge Len Goodman, back in his chair after missing last week because of an overseas trip, gave her a “10.”  It was the first perfect score of the season.  He said Milian’s performance had fiery cha-cha and icy control.  Bruno Tonioli called the routine “indecently hot,” and Carrie Ann Inaba said the dance stood out.  “You’ve been great.  I have loved watching your performances, but tonight, I have to say, that was something special,” she told Milian.  Total score: 28 out of a possible 30 points.

Jack Osbourne: The TV personality’s smooth waltz with partner Cheryl Burke was dedicated to his wife and daughter, and looked back at 2012, when his daughter, Pearl, was born.  Two weeks after her birth, Osbourne learned he had multiple sclerosis.  The judges were struck by the performance.  Not only were his strength and courage admirable, but his dancing was impressive, Tonioli said, adding that Osbourne’s footwork was “so light and musical.”  Inaba said there was something “magical” about Osbourne when he danced.  Despite a small criticism about the way Osbourne sometimes held his hands, Goodman also had high praise.  Total score: 27/30.

Leah Remini: The actress performed a contemporary routine with partner Tony Dovolani that she dedicated to anyone who was going through change and was scared but was discovering inner strength.  Earlier this year, the actress split from the controversial Church of Scientology.  Remini had said the church wants her to fail on DWTS to prove what happens to people who leave the organization.  The church has denied the allegation.  Remini’s routine failed to impress the judges.  Inaba said she liked the concept but the execution, including the lifts, was flawed.  Goodman agreed, adding that the “lifts were a little bit labored on occasion.”  Tonioli acknowledged that this was Remini’s first contemporary routine, and said her storytelling was “very, very good and very effective.”  Total score: 22/30.

Corbin Bleu: The actor said his sister was diagnosed with scoliosis in 2011, and his elegant fox trot was dedicated to her.  Goodman called Bleu “a terrific dancer” and said he had smooth movements and good footwork.  Inaba deducted a point for what she believed was a lift in the beginning of the routine, although Bleu’s pro partner, Karina Smirnoff, denied that, saying her foot was touching the floor during that moment.  Tonioli was very impressed, telling Bleu: “You could be the lost child of Fred Astaire and Ben Vereen, it’s incredible!”  Total score: 28/30.

Bill Engvall: The comedian dedicated his tender Viennese waltz to his wife, Gail, saying she made him a better person since they were wed in 1982.  Tonioli pointed out timing problems and said the comedian at times threw his arms out too roughly while dancing with partner Emma Slater but said the routine had honest, heartfelt emotion.  “You wear your heart on your sleeve, and it’s so good to see, my darling,” he said.  Inaba agreed that, despite the timing problems, the routine touched her, and Goodman said he liked the romance of the dance, despite the rough moments.  Total score: 24/30.

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi: The Jersey Shore star said her most memorable year was 2012, when she gave birth to her son, Lorenzo, and all her priorities shifted.  Polizzi’s high-energy Jazz routine with partner Sasha Farber captivated the audience and the judges.  It was set to Britney Spears’ new single, “Work B**ch.”  Inaba said Polizzi surprised her every week.  Goodman said the routine was vibrant.  “The lifts were clean, it had energy...and it was fun to watch,” he said.  Tonioli said Polizzi worked hard on the routine, calling it an “exhilarating bundle of fun.”  Total score: 27/30.

Brant Daugherty: The actor’s moving contemporary routine was a tribute to his father, who died in 2009 after having been a lifelong champion of his son’s acting dreams.  Goodman said he loved the passion, interaction and chemistry that Daugherty had with his pro partner Peta Murgatroyd.  Tonioli said the actor threw himself into the routine with fearless dedication and passion, calling it “absolutely wonderful.”  Inaba thought the dance worked as well as it did because every single one of Daugherty’s muscle movements was driven by his emotions.  She called the routine “breathtaking.”  Total score: 27/30.

Amber Riley: The actress said 2009 was a pivotal year in her life.  While an employee at IKEA, she tried out for American Idol and was rejected.  She was devastated, until she auditioned for Glee and won the part.  Her funky fox trot with partner Derek Hough drew mixed reviews from the judges.  While Goodman liked Riley’s engaging personality and star quality, he found that there wasn’t enough fox trot content.  Tonioli felt very differently, calling Riley “absolutely and utterly sensational,” and awarding her the second perfect score of the season.  Inaba told Riley she “danced the heck out of that routine.”  Total score: 26/30.

Elizabeth Berkley Lauren: The actress paid tribute to 2012, the year her son was born, and 1989, the year she got her big acting break on the hit series Saved by the Bell.  The judges appreciated the nostalgia of Lauren’s 1980s-inspired jazz routine with partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, but Inaba said she saw flaws, including soft kicks and Lauren falling out of her pirouette.  Goodman thought the actress did a good job, and Tonioli called the routine “incredible fun.”  Total score: 26/30.

Dancing with the Stars returns next Monday at 8 p.m. Eastern time on ABC./>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>
