Dancing with the Stars axed Wynonna Judd and her professional partner Tony Dovolani during Tuesday night's second live sixteenth-season results show on ABC.

The country singer and Tony became the second couple eliminated 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 faced one of my biggest fears and I've made a lifetime friend out of Tony. The dancers are champions. This is the hardest job I've ever loved. I'm a singer, not a dancer, and I did the best I could. I can't wait to get back to making my record and I love my country music fans more than ever," Wynonna said following her ouster.

Wynonna and Tony finished in eleventh -- and last -- place at the bottom of Monday night's leaderboard after they danced a samba routine which received only 15 out of 30 possible points from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

Actor and comedian Andy Dick and partner Sharna Burgess were the other couple still in danger of elimination prior to Wynonna and Tony's ouster, as both pairs were revealed by Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron and co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet to be the bottom-two couples based on the combination of the judges' scores and America's vote.

Andy and Sharna landed in ninth place on the judges' leaderboard after they danced a cha cha routine which received 18 points from the judges.

Former American Idol finalist and country singer Kellie Pickler and partner Derek Hough finished in first place on the leaderboard after they performed a jive routine which received 25 points.

Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman and partner Val Chmerkovskiy and NFL football player Jacoby Jones and partner Karina Smirnoff finished tied for second place on the leaderboard after both couples earned 24 points for their routines. Zendaya and Val performed a Viennese waltz, while Jacoby and Karina danced the rumba.

However, both Jacoby and Zendaya were voted as prom king and queen, so both contestants received an additional two bonus points -- technically putting them ahead of Kellie and Derek score-wise by one point.

Boxer Victor Ortiz and partner Lindsay Arnold and 2012 Olympic gold medal winning gymnast Alexandra "Aly" Raisman and partner Mark Ballas tied for fourth place on Monday night's leaderboard. Aly and Mark danced the Viennese waltz which earned 23 points from the judges, while Victor and Lindsay danced a contemporary routine that received the same number of points.

Three couples finished tied for sixth place on the leaderboard with 21 points: Soap star Ingo Rademacher and partner Kym Johnson, The Bachelor star Sean Lowe and partner Peta Murgatroyd, and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump and partner Gleb Savchenko.

Ingo and Kym danced a paso doble routine, Sean and Peta performed the cha cha and Lisa and Gleb took the stage with a Viennese waltz.

Tenth place went to actor and comedian D.L. Hughley and partner Cheryl Burke after they performed a salsa routine that earned 16 points -- only one point above the last-place couple.
