Billy Ray Two Steps Out of the Competition: Dancing with the Stars Results

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.

I applaud Billy Ray Cyrus for taking a risk by going on Dancing With The Stars and learning the ballroom dances. He contributed a needed sense of realism to the show and tackled each dance with gusto and determination. My personal favorite dance team is Ian and Cheryl. They have so much personality and give each dance 100% effort. Ian is not a professional dancer (like Joey) or a professional athlete (like Apolo and Laila), so he's at a natural disadvantage, but yet he can go toe-to-toe with them in talent. Last week Ian received six straight "9s" from the judges. I hope he surprises everyone by giving his best performances in the next two weeks and capturing the trophy. If you like Ian and Cheryl, please do your part to vote for them on Monday -- vote 4 times for each phone number and 4 times online. Also, Ian has really cool videos on his websites at www.IanZiering.com and www.MySpace.com/OfficialIZ and there you can sign up to receive his fun email blasts.
