Dancing with the Stars eliminated actress Florence Henderson and professional partner Corky Ballas during Tuesday night's fifth live eleventh-season results show on ABC.

Henderson and Ballas were ousted from the competition based on the combination of the Dancing with the Stars judges' scores they received during Monday night's performance show and the home viewer votes that were cast afterwards.

"I've loved the show since it began, I think it's just a tremendous show.  And I hope I've inspired people to get up off their behinds and move and dance and live and enjoy life," the 76-year-old former The Brady Bunch star said after Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron announced her elimination.

"I have been in television for over 50 years, and I have to say, in all honesty, that this is one of the best produced shows I've ever been on.  I truly mean that.  The best crew, the best hair, makeup, costumes -- even the judges are the best.  [Brooke Burke], Tom, the music.  And most of all this darling man, Corky Ballas."

Henderson and Ballas had finished in sixth place on Monday night's judging leaderboard after they performed a tango which received 21 out of 30 possible points from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli

Former NBA basketball player Rick Fox and partner Cheryl Burke were the other couple still in danger of elimination prior to Henderson and Ballas' ouster, however Bergeron did not specify whether they were the other couple in the bottom two based on the combination of the judges' scoring and home viewer votes from Monday night's performances.

Fox and Burke had finished in a third-place tie with recently retired NFL quarterback Kurt Warner and partner Anna Trebunskaya after both couples received 24 points from the judges.  Fox and Burke had performed a rumba while Warner and Trebunskaya had danced a quickstep.

Singer Brandy Norwood and professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy had topped Dancing with the Stars' judging leaderboard on Monday night with 27 points for their quickstep performance.

Actress Jennifer Grey and partner Derek Hough -- who topped the judges' leaderboard last week, as well as during the competition's first two weeks -- had finished in second place after they earned 25 points for their foxtrot.

Former The Hills star Audrina Patridge and partner Tony Dovolani had placed fifth after they received 23 points for their rumba.

Disney Channel star Kyle Massey and partner Lacey Schwimmer had finished in seventh place after their foxtrot performance earned 20 points and been followed by teen mom Bristol Palin and partner Mark Ballas, who placed last after earning only 18 points for their jive.
