September 21, 2011 – The first celebrity to be voted off Dancing With the Stars on Tuesday’s results show was Ron Artest, or aka Metta World Peace, while Nancy Grace and Eisabetta Canalis were saved.
Ron and his pro-dance partner Peta Murgatroyd got the lowest score on Monday, a 14, so it was not too much of a surprise that they were eliminated. In fact, the results on Tuesday seemed to follow quite close between the scores and the viewers’ votes.

The two other couples to be deemed in jeopardy along with Ron and Peta were Rob Kardashian with Cheryl Burke, who got a 16, and Nancy Grace with Tristan McManus, who also earned a 16. Meanwhile, Elisabetta Canalis and Val Chmerkovskiy, who got the second lowest score of 15, were safe.
The rest of the contestants had scores ranging from 17, a tied score between Carlson Kressley with Anna Trebunskaya and Chaz Bono with Lacey Schwimmer and 22. The highest score of 22 was also a tie, which was earned by Chynna Philipps with Tony Dovolani and JR Martinez with Karina Smirnoff.
