'I'm in shock!' Christina Milian is eliminated in a huge upset on Dancing With The Stars after having a 'perfect night'

By Daily Mail Reporter

PUBLISHED: 06:11, 15 October 2013 | UPDATED: 08:55, 15 October 2013

With the first 10 of the season and the judges falling over themselves to praise her, Christina Milian appeared to have had the perfect night on Dancing With The Stars.

So it is understandable just how shocked and confused she was to have ended the night as the only one eliminated from the hit TV dance competition, on Monday's episode.

With the elimination being based on that night's judges' scores along with the previous week's viewers' votes, it seemed Christina's highest score of the night for her amazing cha cha cha made her a sure thing to go through to the next week.


Eliminated: Christina Milian was kicked off Dancing With The Stars on Monday night, pictured with her pro partner Mark Ballas

And it seemed even more of a formality when she was placed alongside Leah Rimini who had easiest the lowest score of the night and bombed in the judges' eyes.

It clearly took a second to sink in when Christina's name was read out as the exiting hopeful, with the audience soon booing the decision as Christina tried to smile through her confusion.

'I have to say it's true shock,' she finally said. 'I wasn't expecting that. We had I think the best performance tonight that we've had thus far.'


Her best night: Christina scored her first 10 on the show before being eliminated

The elimination came after judge Bruno Tonioli called her dance 'indecently hot' as well as one that 'painted the perfect picture of a hot latina', while Carrie Ann Inaba said: 'That was something special - your technique was on fire.'

Her partner Mark Ballas said: 'I'm just very proud of Christina, we worked really hard - and we went out with a bang!'

Close friend Paris Hilton, in the audience to support her, looked equally shocked.


Winning the judges: The 32-year-old performed a sultry Cha cha

'She looked so gorgeous tonight and I was so proud to watch her dance,' she had said earlier. 'I thought her moves were so sexy, I was so impressed.

'I can dance, but I can't dance like her - she has some moves.'

Leah Rimini looked just as shocked at still being in the competition after being up against the best dancer of the night.

In comparison, Leah's dance to Katy Perry's War was called 'a little bit labored' by judge Len Goodman, who admitted: 'For me it was good, it wasn't great.'


Hard work: The singer and actress put in long hours in the studio leading up to the big night

After getting two sevens and an eight - and the lowest score of the evening - Leah had not been able to hide her disappointment in her performance and seemed even then destined to be heading home.

'What am I thinking? You don't wanna know. It's not for this audience,' she said. 'I don't know how to dance.'

As well as genuine shock, it had been a night of high emotion as the remaining contestants all dedicated their dances to the most memorable year of their life.

Jack Osbourne broke down as he spoke of getting diagnosed with multiple sclerosis just weeks after becoming a dad - emotion that appeared to have done wonders for his dancing.


The choice: Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani were saved as Milian was ousted

'Pearl was born and then barely two-and-a-half weeks later I was diagnosed with MS,' he said of the emotional roller coaster he suffered last year.

'You now have this disease that there's no known cure for and if it gets bad the remainder of your years could be spent in a wheelchair, with feeding tubes - and it was scary.

'But I wasn't so much scared for myself - I was scared for my kid.'

Breaking down in tears, he continued: 'This is my kid, I have to care for it - and now I'm going to be in a f***ing wheelchair.

'I don't care what happens to me if it's just me, but if my quality of life goes to a place where I can't provide for a kid … my whole thing was like f**k this, what is this?


Good sport: The star smiled through her disappointment

'I had about four days of feeling really down and depressed - and then I was like, "I've got a three week old baby I've got to take care of". It got my mind away from really bad news.

'I don't know how I would have got through this if I didn't have Lisa or my kid. I owe them more than they could ever realise.'

Dedicated his Waltz to wife Lisa and their daughter, he ran over to kiss Lisa in the audience at the end - while also getting a standing ovation and his highest score with all three judges giving 9s.

'We are lost in admiration for your strength of character and courage, I tell you - but you didn't need any help because your dancing tonight was wonderful, my darling,' Bruno told him. 'You made it happen tonight my darling.'


Storyteller: Leah Remini performed a heartfelt conceptual dance to Katy Perry's Roar

Carrie Ann was equally thrilled, telling him: 'There's something so magic about you - the grace of your being always manages to slip into the grace of your dancing. It just takes my breathe away.'

Leah, meanwhile, based her whole dance around her decision to leave the religion she was raised with - with her dance showing her as a puppet who finally breaks free from her puppeteer controlling her with strings.

'You can't let anybody dictate to you how you should live,' she said.


Getting a lift: The King Of Queens alum did some acrobatic manoeuvres

'Where you're raised on something and dependent on something you don't realize how not strong you really are until stuff hits the fan - and then you really realize what you're made of.

'But I think it's been great. I think my daughters really got to see the strength in our family. I need to show my daughter what's really important in life.

'It's always scary to make change in your life. But you've got to do it.'


Getting horizontal: Remini was a sight to behold as she flew across the floor suspended on her partner's shoulders

Christina Milian's top performance of the night had also been fueled by emotion as she dedicated the dance to 2010, the years she became a mother - and discovered husband The Dream was cheating on her.

'2010 was a crazy year - seriously,' she had said. 'I gave birth to my daughter, Violet - she's just the love of my life and she's just the most amazing miracle that I have ever experienced my while life.

'But that same year, the person who I had my child with, who I was married to - well, we ended up getting a divorce.'

Even worse, she only split with ex The Dream because of photos proved he was cheating.

'To wake up in the morning and find out that your spouse is being unfaithful, and to find out in front of the rest of the world, was hard, and it was embarrassing. And it hurt - it definitely hurt. You think that you're going to build a lifetime with the person that you had your child with, took vows with, and to see it not work out was the biggest pain.'


Getting some criticism: The actress' lifts were critiqued by the judges

Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi also spoke movingly of becoming a mother last year - and how it made her do 'a total 180' in her life.

She told dance partner Sasha that he 'probably wouldn't even like' the old her, saying: 'I drank all the time, I was loud, I was annoying - I'm still annoying now, but it was different - and I was just young and dumb.

'When the world found out I was pregnant it was a really hard time for me because the whole entire world basically told me I was going to be a terrible mother.

'In the back of my mind I thought, "Oh my God, are these people right? Am I going to be a terrible mum? What's going to happen to my son?"


Emotional: Jack Osbourne opened up about his illness

Tender moment: Jack was shown holding daughter Pearl on the show


Her name is Pearl: Jack opened up about being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis shortly after his daughter was born

'But as soon as I had Lorenzo and I held him in my arms for the first time I just knew at that moment that this is where my life's supposed to be. I knew at that moment I was going to be the best mum for my son.

'Now I'm responsible, I do laundry, I clean - I've never done that s**t my whole entire life.

'Having Lorenzo made me do a total 180 - I'm such a better person than who I was. He has made me who I am and changed me.'

Her high energy jazz routine to Britney Spears' Work B**ch got all 9s from the judges, with Len praising it for being 'fast paced', 'vibrant' and 'fun to watch', while Bruno called her an 'exhilarating bundle of fun'.


Working it: Snooki performed an athletic routine to a song by Britney Spears with the aid of her pro Sasha Farber

'She works hard for her money - and you work that hard you deserve every penny that you get,' he said. 'Loved it.'

'I danced my butt for that score - thank you!' Snooki said.

Emotion was also high for Pretty Little Liars star Brant Dougherty who spoke of losing his dad David in 2009, a year after his dad had encouraged him to move to Hollywood and chase his dreams.

'In February 2009 my mum called me and told me that I had to come home - I had to say goodbye to my dad,' he recalled through tears.

'My dad had lymphoma and he was already in a medically induced coma by then. And I sat by his side in the hospital for two weeks. And one night he passed away.

'So when I came back home to California I threw all my energy into my acting career… I know that my dad would be very proud of me.

'Nobody has impacted me more than my father has. I know he'd be right in the front row cheering me on.'

After his contemporary dance to Elton John's Your Song contemporary, he broke down in tears once again as he hugged dance partner Peta Murgatroyd.

Len told him: ''When I sit here I always think my dad's looking down at me - and I'm sure your dad's looking down at you.'

'And I might add - with incredible pride,' Bruno continued.


'A 180': The reality star opened up about how motherhood has changed her

'I just wrapped my heart around that routine - it was breathtaking,' Carrie Ann told him, with all three judges giving nines.

Actress Elizabeth Berkley Lauren was supported by former Saved By The Bell co-star Mario Lopez as she made a double dedication, both to that show - and to becoming a mother to son sky.

'It was the beginning of the steps that changed my life,' she said of landing her career-defining role in the hit TV show. 'And of course everything leads to Sky.'

She recreated a key moment in the TV show where she dances to I'm So Excited, wearing 50s rocker outfits and partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy  showing off his bare chest, but failed to impress Carrie Ann who gave her an eight.


High emotions: Pretty Little Liars star Brant Dougherty dedicated his performance to his deceased father David with his partner Peta Murgatroyd

However the other two judges both gave nines, with Len calling it 'sharp, fast, clean and exact' and Bruno saying: 'Incredible fun, what more do you want?'

Corbin Bleu dedicated his dance to 2011, the year he found out his 12-year-old sister Phoenix had scoliosis.

'She just handles it so beautifully and she's such an inspiration to me,' he said, later running up to his sister in the audience after his foxtrot.

Len called him a 'terrific dancer' who 'gets the character of it straight away' while Bruno called it 'incredible'.

'You could be the love child of Fred Astaire and Ben Vereen,' Bruno added, giving the second 10 of the night. 'You manage to have the incredibly stylish movement of Fred Astaire and the slickness, the verve, and the stylish, jazzy moves, and you blind them together in something that is so unique. That is a great compliment, my darling.'


Giving it his all: The actor gave a rousing and heartfelt performance

Amber Riley, who dedicated her foxtrot to landing a part in Glee not long after being 'inconsolable' at being turned down for American Idol, got the evening's third perfect 10 - but a lousy seven from Len who complained that the dance wasn't really a foxtrot.

'You are a star, you light the place up,' he told her.

'For me, as great as you are - and truly I love your dancing = there wasn't enough. I'm looking at a foxtrot - I need more foxtrot.'

However, Bruno had gushed to her: 'One thing is for sure - lady Amber is here to stay. That was absolutely and utterly sensational. You are a performing powerhouse. My darling, you're a star.'
Meanwhile romantic funnyman Bill Engvall chose 1982 - the year he married his 'lovely wife' Gail. 'It wasn't love at first sight at all - I really had to work this one,' he admitted.

'But we've been married more than 30 years. She's made me a better person than I would've ever have been on my own.'


Rousing performance: Amber Riley and Derek Hough did a fun and lighthearted fox trot

Preparing to dance the waltz to She's Always a Woman by Billy Joel, he said: 'It's the perfect song for Gail. Throughout our marriage, there have been times that I've just been lost. Like, "Where I'm going? What I'm doing?" and she's always there to say, "We're gonna be fine".'

After running to kiss his wife in the audience, he seemed thrilled at getting all eights from the judges.

'Honest, heartfelt, emotional - you wore your heart on your sleeve,' Bruno praised him, while Carrie Ann said: 'Dancing is all about touching people's souls - you touched our souls tonight.'

As well as supporting Christina Milian, Paris was also praised for helping Jack Osbourne hone his early dance skills - while they partied together.

And she did not rule out a possible performance on the show herself.

'I'll try it out one time maybe,' she said as co-host Brooke Burke teased her about coming on for a future season.


Going for it: The Glee star and the pro dancer won over the judges with their flair
