The daytime talk show host and Dovolani became the second couple ousted from the competition based on the combination of the Dancing with the Stars judges' scores they had received during Monday night's performance show and the home viewer votes that were cast afterwards. 

"I am probably the busiest person in terms of flying back and forth and in addition to that, I have a marriage, a child and a litany of other things to hold together. So, this has been a wonderful opportunity for me," Williams said following her elimination.

"I want to thank the judges and I want to thank you also, Tony, for teaching me how to dance because, you know, I still can't... Look, because despite stereotypes, this is one black girl who can't even do 'the running man.' P.S., I got a chance [to move my body] in front of millions of people. With that said, I will do the rest of the talking tomorrow on The Wendy Williams Show."

Williams and Dovolani had finished in tenth -- and last -- place on the judges' leaderboard, which featured the judges' scores from Monday night's broadcast of the twelfth season's third performance show, after they performed a foxtrot which only received 15 points out of 30 possible points from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

WWE wrestler Chris Jericho and partner Cheryl Burke were the other couple still in danger of elimination prior to Williams and Dovolani's ouster, however Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron noted they were not necessarily the other couple in the bottom two based on the combination of the judges' scoring and home viewer votes from Monday night's performance show.

Jericho and Burke had finished in a fifth-place tie on the judges leaderboard alongside actor Ralph Macchio and professional partner Karina Smirnoff and actress and former Kirstie Alley's Big Life star Kirstie Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

All three couples had performed rumba routines which each earned 21 points from the judges.

Supermodel and former A Model Life star Petra Nemcova and partner Dmitry Chaplin and NFL football star Hines Ward and partner Kym Johnson had finished tied for first place on the judges' leaderboard after both couples had received 25 points from the judges.

Nemcova and Chaplin had performed a waltz, while Ward and Johnson had danced a samba.

Third place had also represented a tie between couples Disney Channel star Chelsea Kane and partner Mark Ballas and Kendra and former The Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson and partner Louis van Amstel.

Kane and Ballas had performed a cha cha and received 23 points from the judges, while Wilkinson and Amstel earned the same amount of points after they had danced a rumba.

Two additional celebrities -- rapper Romeo and retired boxer and former The Contender host Sugar Ray Leonard -- had finished in an eighth-place tie on the leaderboard after they and their partners each performed dances which received 20 points from the judges.

Romeo and partner Chelsie Hightower danced a rumba, while Leonard and partner Anna Trebunskaya performed a paso doble.
