Viewers knock out Sugar Ray Leonard from 'Dancing With the Stars'

Week four of 'Dancing with the Stars" was Classical Week, but even a 46-piece orchestra and ballet classes couldn't prevent Sugar Ray Leonard from being knocked out from the competition with partner Anna Trebunskaya. Their Viennese waltz had lots of schmaltz but not enough fancy footwork for the judges who gave the duo three 7's for a total of 21 before viewers' votes. Judge Bruno Tonioli even commented it was watching like "Mickey Rooney and The Ballerina."

It was almost a certainty who was going home, considering that the bottom trio "in jeopardy" were Leonard and Trebunskaya, along with Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas, who were first on the leaderboard and scored 26 with an 8 and two 9's, and Petra Nemcova and Dmitry Chaplin in a tie for third with a 7 and two 8's for 23.

However, unless Kendra Wilkinson decides to actually dance next week instead of sleepwalk through a routine, the best choreography of Louis Van Amstel won't be able to save her from elimination. She danced like a department-store mannequin, and when Van Amstel dragged her around and around, he practically mopped the dance floor.
