Michael Sam Eliminated On DWTS

Via the New York Daily News:

He’s been cut from the National Football League, and now he’s been ousted from “Dancing with the Stars.” Viewers and judges on ABC’s celebrity dance competition Monday made the NFL’s first openly gay draft pick the third contestant kicked off this season. Sam, 25, dedicated a rumba dance to his estranged father, but the performance set to “I’m Not My Father’s Son” garnered a score of only 30 out of 40 from the judges, People magazine reported. The gracious Sam,who got engaged to boyfriend Vito Cammisano in January, thanked dance partner Peta Murgatroyd and described the defeat as “bittersweet” in an interview with Access Hollywood. “I thought my last dance was my best dance,”Sam told the TV show. “And I would like to leave on my best dance instead of my horrible dance.”

Here is his final dance.
