By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 09/24/2019
Dancing with the Stars eliminated Mary Wilson and her professional partner Brandon Armstrong after new voting and results formats were put into effect and Hannah Brown topped the leaderboard during Monday night's Season 28 broadcast on ABC.
"It was fabulous! I enjoyed it so much!" Mary said of her short-lived Dancing with the Stars experience following her ouster.
The iconic member of The Supremes and Brandon landed in the bottom two along with former NFL football star Ray Lewis and partner Cheryl Burke based on the combination of judges' scores from the last two performance shows as well as the live votes that poured in throughout Monday night's broadcast as it aired in the Eastern and Central time zones.
Country music star and former American Idol runner-up Lauren Alaina and partner Gleb Savchenko placed third on the combined leaderboard with a total of 38 points after taking the stage with a paso doble routine that earned 19 judges' points on Monday night.
