Dancing with the Stars results: David Alan Grier is eliminated

After competing in Tuesday's dance off, David Alan Grier is leaving "Dancing with the Stars." The comedian and former NFL star Lawrence Taylor were the bottom two dancers on Tuesday's "Dancing with the Stars" results show.

To determine the lowest scoring dancers, judges' scores from Monday's performances were calculated with viewers' votes cast after that show. Judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli gave Lawrence Taylor and his partner Edyta Sliwinska a score of 20 while David Alan Grier and Kym Johnson received 22.

After Tuesday's dance off, the judges agreed that David Alan Grier worked well under pressure and his score improved two points to a total of 24. The judges also thought L.T. improved, but his score remained unchanged at 20.

Though Steve-O and his partner Lacey Schwimmer had the lowest judges' score Monday with 18, his number of fan votes pulled him through to the next round.

Before leaving the show, David Alan Grier complimented his partner, Kym Johnson, and said he would miss dancing with her each week. She thanked him for teaching her some funny jokes after admitting that at first she "didn't get" his humor.
