As announced at ABC, rapper Romeo was eliminated from DWTS 2011 show in spite of having the second to the lowest score on Monday night, as Ralph Macchio had the lowest score.

Apparently, Romeo and Chelsie Hightower scored 27 points on the ‘Individual Dance’ as they did the Tango to the tune of “Tequila” by Xavier Cugat, and earned 25 points in “Instant Dances”.

On the other hand, Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff scored only 25 points in the “Individual Dance” after dancing Viennese Waltz to the tune of “Stuck In The Middle” by Stealers Wheel.

For the “Instant Dances”, Ralph Macchio scored 21 when he and Karina danced the Cha-Cha, but the “Karate Kid” star suffered a knee injury prior to Monday‚Äôs performance, which is being expected to heal within the next few days.

“I’m not surprised because the competition in here, it could be anybody could go at any time. But we went out with a bang,” Romeo said after DWTS host Tom Bergeron announced that he was voted off.

“This show has changed my life forever. I was terrified of dancing. I didn’t dance at my own prom. I turned down a lot of movies because I was terrified of dancing … I think I showed kids anything is possible if you try.” Romeo added.

Besides Ralph Macchio, other celebrities remaining on the Dancing with the Stars Season 12 are Chelsea Kane, Hines Ward and Kirstie Alley.
