Not giving 'Metta World Peace' a chance: Ron Artest is the very first contestant to get the boot from Dancing With The Stars

By Jade Watkins

With his rippling torso on show last night, LA Lakers basketballer Ron Artest had many of his female fans, as well as judge Carrie-Ann Inaba in a fluster.

But it seems that it wasn't enough to see him through to the next round, as the 31-year-old six foot seven NBA player was eliminated from Dancing With The Stars last night.

The sportsman, who recently officially changed his name to 'Metta World Peace', was gracious about getting the boot alongside partner Peta Murgatroyd.


Eliminated: LA Lakers basketballer Ron Artest was eliminated from Dancing With The Stars, last night

'Who's coming with me?' he asked the audience.

'Everybody give a round of applause to Peta, she was awesome!'

Later Artest told host Tom Bergeron that he had a ball: 'I had a great, great time,' he said.

The night before, the judges had mixed review of his performance and gave him the lowest score of the night with a 14 out of 30.


Good sportsman: The 31-year-old six foot seven NBA player, who recently officially changed his name to Metta World Peace, was gracious about getting the boot alongside partner Peta Murgatroyd


Head to head: Ron and Petra were in the bottom two with TV journalist Nancy Grace and partner Tristan McManus

Right off the bat, Len Goodman was critical of the dance.

'Your footwork was atrocious. It was all sizzle, no sausage. It was ... not my cup of tea,' he said.

With boos erupting from the audience, Bruno Tonioli's comments were however met with much more welcome arms.

'Ron, the dancer drone has landed! You have power. You have presence. So go for it, Dancer-Tron!' he exclaimed.


Lots of fun: Ron told hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke he had a 'great time' on the show

Ron admitted earlier in last night's elimination show, that he was perhaps more excited about getting up close and personal with partner Peta, than the actual dance itself.

'I wasn't focused,' he said. 'I knew I was going to smack Peta's booty and I was waiting for that part!'

Shrouded in controversy ever since being announced as a contestant on Dancing With The Stars, Cher's transsexual son overcame all the contention to come up as one of the top contenders on the much talked about premiere of the show.


Ecstatic: Controversial contestant Chaz Bono and his partner Lacey Schwimmer were thrilled to get through to the next round

The 42-year-old wowed the judges with his moves, which were rumored to have been uneasy during the last few weeks of rehearsals.

And it seems that viewers at home were also impressed, as the author and activist and his partner Lacey Schwimmer were safe from elimination last night.

Before the actual results show, Chaz admitted that he had to let go of being shy for his first performance.

'I had to let go obviously for this,' he said. 'Coming out last was tough, but in the back of my mind I knew I still had to go out there. It was nerve-racking.'


Brave: Tonight host Tom Bergeron complemented David Arquette about his upfront and honest attitude going into the contest with partner Kym Johnson


Hilarious: Earlier in the show, David is seen busting into rehearsals in a Batman/Elvis costume

He also revealed how pleased he was when he first found out about being paired with Schwimmer, as he was terrified about being put on the arm of one particular professional dancer - Cheryl Burke.

During a recorded tape of when Chaz and Schwimmer first met, he told the blonde that he was ecstatic when they announced her name.

'I was so nervous...,' he said.


Quirky: David also showed off his array of disco-inspired shirts

'Why?' asked Schwimmer.

'I was thinking... Is it going to be the right partner? I am afraid of Cheryl Burke. If she was hard on Gilles (Marini), she was going to crucify me,' he said.

Chaz got rave reviews from the judges after his performance the night before, which clearly helped him keep in the game until next week.

'I think people have been waiting all night to see you, Chaz, and you do not disappoint! You can dance! You had great footwork. You've got so much joy. You light up this room,' Carrie-Ann said of his much anticipated dance.


Nervous: After receiving one of the lowest scores the night before, Elisabetta Canalis and Val Chmerkovskiy were worried


Relief: But after finding out they made it through, their frowns were turned upside down

Len thought the gay activist was having a ball and cheered the highly-criticized star on.

'You really came out with the right attitude. You came out to enjoy yourself, and that's what I felt you did,' he said 'You're so joyous out here. Great debut, Chaz. You should be proud!'

On last night's elimination show host Tom Bergeron complemented David Arquette about his upfront and honest attitude going into the contest.

When asked if it had been an emotional experience for the Scream star, David said: 'It has. It has  been an amazing opportunity for me, working with the dancers.'

With estranged wife Courteney Cox and their daughter Coco cheering him on the crowd the night before, David was an overall crowd-pleaser in his rendition of the Viennese Waltz.


No more nerves: After admitting that she was racked with nerves the night before, Kristin Cavallari got her confidence back when The Hills star found out she and Mark Ballas were going to dance again next week

Bruno was blown away by actor: 'There was no superficial start or messing about. You came straight out into the dance, and I was very, very impressed,' he said.

And it seems that viewers were also charmed by the 40-year-old, who was also safe from elimination in last night's show.

If Kristin Cavallari had been nervous during her performance of the Cha Cha the night before, she certainly concealed it well.


Awaiting their fate: Carson Kressley and partner Anna Trebunskaya, and Rob Kardashian and partner Cheryl Burke look nervous as they awaited their fate

Host Tom told the audience during elimination show that her nerves were the talk of the cast and crew.

Kristin said that surprisingly dancing in front a huge crowd calmed her.

'My biggest fear was dancing in front of a live audience, but I think that helped me,' she said.


Embrace: Ricki Lake and Derek Hough stayed close before hearing their good news

And it certainly did, the 24-year-old will hit the dance floor again in next week's live show after avoiding the chop.

 Elisabetta Canalis' attempts to showcase her sexuality during her performance left her struggling at the bottom of the league board.

George Clooney's ex even opened her routine with a seductive bed routine, but still failed to impress viewers and the judging panel on the arm of Val Chmerkovskiy.


Happy: Nancy Grace and Tristan McManus waltzed into the next round

The pair only achieved a score of 15 out of 30, with Canalis obviously disappointed at the result.

But her frown was turned upside down last night as she was also saved from elimination.

The Italian model, 33, was thrilled: 'I was hoping. I was very sad (after last night) I want to thank all the public that voted for us,' she gushed.


Fist pump: Maksim Chmerkovskiy did a Jersey Shore salute upon finding out that he and World Cup soccer star Hope Solo would hit the dance floor again

TV Journalist Nancy Grace will also slip into more sparkles next week on the arm of Tristan McManus, and The Kardashian sisters will most likely be spotted in the crowd again after brother Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke also made it through to the next round.

The other remaining couples; Former talk show host Ricki Lake and Cheryl Burke, Wilson Phillips singer Chynna Phillps and Tony Dovolani, Super-stylist Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunshaya, World Cup Soccer player Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and J.R Martinez and Karina Smirnoff will also be back next week.


Cheers for no fears: Karina Smirnoff and J.R Martinez were one cheerful couple


Give us a hug: Chynna Phillips leaped into the arms of Tony Dovolani upon discovering she had avoided elimination last night
