'Dancing With The Stars' Cast-Off Jack Wanger Talks His Elimination On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It must have been a bittersweet night for Jack Wagner for so many reasons. He admitted on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (Weeknights, 12 a.m. ET on ABC) that he was disappointed to be eliminated from "Dancing With the Stars." But as Jimmy Kimmel pointed out, he went out with a score of 24 points, so that's nothing to be too disappointed about. There's just such a strong field of contenders this year.

But it had to be extra disappointing, considering that Tom Bergeron announced that starting next week, the judges would get the final say on who goes home -- at least for the next four weeks. That means Wanger could have had a chance to dance to save himself.

But he got to say what he wanted to say in a dance that moved him to tears on a night of tears from nearly all of the "DWTS" contestants.

Wagner dedicated his dance to his daughter, who he only found out about this past November. "This was the celebration dance for everybody who has faced adoption and gone through the miracle and heartaches of people who have tried to find their parents," he said. "And my daughter has a lot of courage.

"Dancing with the Stars" continues Mondays at 8 p.m. ET and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. "Jimmy Kimmel Live" is on every weeknights at 12 a.m. ET on ABC.
