Krupa and Hough were eliminated from the competition based on a combination of the judges' scores they had received for the three dances they had performed on Dancing with the Stars' Monday night performance show and the home viewer votes that were cast immediately following the broadcast.
"It's been such an amazing experience, thank you to the judges," Krupa said following her elimination. "I've grown as a person and thank you for giving me the opportunity. I had a great partner."
Krupa and Hough had placed second on Monday night's judges' leaderboard with 81 out of 90 possible points. They had received 27 out of 30 points for their Viennese waltz, 27 out of 30 points for their cha-cha, and 27 out of 30 points for their salsa.
Former The Osbournes star Kelly Osbourne and her partner Louis van Amstel had finished in third place on the judges' leaderboard and were the other couple still in danger of elimination when Krupa and Hough's elimination was revealed, however Dancing with the Stars co-host Samantha Harris had been careful to note they were not necessarily the week's second-lowest ranked couple.
"Kelly for me has taken dancing into her heart and in doing so has entered all of ours, she's been wonderful. And Joanna [and Derek], you've been for me the most consistent of all of our couples. You've been wonderful," lead judge Len Goodman said before Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron announced Krupa and Hough's ouster. "Whoever goes will be sadly missed."
Singer/actress Mya and her partner Dmitry Chaplin had finished on top of the judges' leaderboard for a second consecutive week -- and the fifth time in the competition -- with 87 out of 90 possible points. They had received 28 out of 30 points for their waltz, a perfect 30 out of 30 points for their salsa, and 29 out of 30 points for their cha-cha.
Osbourne and van Amstel had finished in third place after receiving 78 out of 90 possible points -- 24 out of 30 points for their rumba, 27 out of 30 points for their quickstep, and 27 out of 30 points for their cha-cha.
Entertainer Donny Osmond and his partner Kym Johnson had ranked last on the judges' leaderboard after receiving 74 out of 90 possible points. They had received 21 out of 30 points for their tango, 26 out of 30 points for their samba, and 27 out of 30 points for their jitterbug.
Dancing with the Stars' three remaining ninth-season finalists will perform on next Monday's final performance show and the season's champion will be crowned on Tuesday night's season-finale broadcast.
