'Dancing With The Stars' Results: Bill Engvall Eliminated In Part 1 Of The Finals

After far too many weeks, according to "Dancing With the Stars" enthusiasts, Bill Engvall finally danced his last dance. The comedian outlasted many celebrities who outscored him on the dance floor week after week, making it into the first part of the two-night season finale. He fell just short of the finish line, though.

Once again, Engvall had the lowest scores on the night with 51, but this time they would prove his undoing. Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke scored 57, so they're going to have to step it up. The other competitors on Tuesday night's special episode are Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff, and Amber Riley and Derek Hough.

Engvall was gracious in his departure, saying, "It just goes to prove to me, there is a God! Because I don’t think I could make one more dance." He had nothing but praise for his partner Emma Slater, saying she's like a second daughter to him.

E! Online's Leanne Aguilera thinks America got it right. "Wiggling and disco dancing around the floor is not the same as ballroom dancing," she wrote. But HitFix's Liane Bonin Starr agreed. "I can't be too sad about this, only because many more talented dancers were sent home while Bill was flopping and stomping around each week. He was great fun, such a joy, but it's time to get serious.”

Catch the "Dancing with the Stars" finale on a special night, Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
