It was time for him to go, but it doesn't make it any less sad. Yes, Billy Ray Cyrus has (finally) been voted off of Dancing with the Stars.
He wasn't the best dancer on the show -- far from it. But he brought a charm, charisma, sens of humor, and a committment to his performances that far transcended technical skill. I'm gonna miss the guy.
And now we're stuck with another week of Ian Ziering, the stiffest dancer this side of...well, I don't have an end to that statement. He's just stiff.
If Ian gets the boot next week (as he should), we could actually end up wth the season's best three dancers in the finale. Apolo vs. Joey vs. Laila? Should be fun to watch.
