'Dancing With The Stars' says goodbye to Elisabetta

Wednesday September 28, 2011

Elisabetta Canalis quickstepped off Dancing With The Stars on Tuesday.

The Italian siren – who recently split from Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney – was eliminated from the US show, despite her third-place finish on Monday's episode.

"For me, it was a gift every day staying here. It was a great adventure," the 33-year old actress said after hearing the outcome.

"I want to thank everybody because they made me come here. Thanks to the public and to everybody who voted for us.

"Now, I am really nervous, but thank you anyway. It was a great experience."

She and professional partner Val Chmerkovskiy earned 21 points out of 30 for their quickstep routine – a six-point improvement on their debut dance.

But the judges' scores are combined with viewers' votes to determine which celebrity is ousted each week.

And sadly, the couple failed to convince the fans.
