Singer Gladys Knight, 67, was eliminated from ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Season 14 on Tuesday night in Los Angeles along with her professional dancing partner Tristan MacManus.
The singer who danced the Rumba the night before, Monday night ,was told by judge Len Goodman that she may not have been the best dancer, but she was a charismatic dancer.
The 67 year-old Motown legend had been battling it out on the dance floor for 6 weeks up against the likes of Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd, Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff, Jack Wagner & Anna Trebunskaya, Jaleel & Kym Johnson, Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas, Maria Menounos & Derek Hough, Martina Navratilova & Tony Dovolani, Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower, Sherri Shepherd & Val Chmerkovskiy and William Levy & Cheryl Burke. Although Gladys Knight delivered week after week, all good things must come to an end and it came on Tuesday night.
During the elimination round which was unfortunately Motown week, Gladys Knight had the opportunity to be saved by dancing up against Disney star Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower, however her jive wasn’t good enough for 4 of the 5 judges.
According to Gladys Knight, her stint on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ has been extraordinary and she has learned a lot of things. “I’m just overjoyed,” stated Gladys Knight. In addition, the singer also states she lost more than 60 lbs during her bid on Dancing With The Stars giving herself an even healthier body.
