The "DWTS" results are in and Sean Lowe is going home.
"I've enjoyed every second of it," Sean said after the "DWTS" results were announced. "I truly am blessed to have taken part in this ... What an incredible opportunity."
The "Bachelor" alum and his partner Peta Murgatroyd were at the bottom of the leaderboard after Monday night's performance show with 42 out of a possible 60. His tango disappointed the judges, who saw improvement in him last week, and his trio performance, with Sharna Burgess (Andy Dick's former partner) added to the mix, also failed to impress. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba told him he was out of sync one too many times.
The rest of this week's "DWTS" results, however, were quite shocking. Country singer Kellie Pickler was in the Bottom 3 for the first time this season after her trio paso doble caused some tension amongst the judges. Head judge Len Goodman gave Kellie and her partner Derek Hough a 7, citing the lack of traditional paso moves, while Carrie Ann and Bruno Toniolo gave them 10's. "Somebody might be wearing a 7 paddle home," host Tom Bergeron joked when the "DWTS" results were announced. Kellie took the news in stride, joking, "Maybe he picked up the wrong paddle." She added, "Everybody likes their coffee different."
Another "DWTS" result night surprise was NFL champ Jacoby Jones and his partner Karina Smirnoff rounding out the Bottom 3. The two found themselves in that position for the first time this season, but Jacoby and Karina were saved at the last minute.
Shockingly, soap star Ingo Rademacher and his partner Kym Johnson, who were only one spot above Sean and Peta, were the first put through to the semi-finals. Then Zendaya and Val Chmerkovskiy, who were at the top of the leaderboard with a 58 out of 60, were safe. Gymanst Aly Raisman and her partner Mark Ballas also moved on before it was revealed that Kellie and Jacoby would be joining them next week.
As for the encore performance, Zendaya's trio performance, which earned the first perfect 30 of the season, was given the honor. "It's a no-brainer," Len said.
The "DWTS" results show also revealed which dances fans would see next week after they voted via Twitter last night: Kellie and Derek will perform the flamenco, which she could not pronounce; Ingo and Kym will do the charleston; Zendaya and Val got hip hop, which definitely gives them a leg up since the Disney star plays a professional teen hip-hop dancer on "Shake It Up!"; Aly and Mark got their wish with Afro jazz; and Jacoby and Karina will perform the lindy hop. Had they made it through to the semi-finals, Sean and Peta would've done the disco.
Aside from the results on Tuesday night, Jason Derulo performed his latest single "The Other Side" for the first time after his near-paralyzing neck injury, and he dispelled any notion that he wasn't back 100 percent by starting off the song on his head. Emeli Sande also sang her hit single "Next to Me" and Derek Hough and Jaimie Goodwin of "So You Think You Can Dance" fame performed an amazing dance set to Kerli's "Walking On Air."
