Dancing with the Stars results: Lawrence Taylor is eliminated

Former NFL great Lawrence Taylor is headed back to the golf course after Tuesday's "Dancing with the Stars" results show. He seemed quite content to be leaving the show. He promised his buddies back home that he was ready to tee-off.

He thanked ABC for pairing him with professional dancer Edyta Sliwinska. "She's taught me everything I know about dancing," he said.

Edyta learned something from L.T., too. "He definitely taught me everything I know about golf... It was an honor to get to know you."

Lawrence and Edyta had the lowest judges' score after Monday's competition. They received a 21 for their waltz. That score was then calculated with viewers' votes.

Earning enough votes to stay for another week were country singer Chuck Wicks and his partner Julianne Hough. The two performed in Auburn, Alabama on Saturday at the Sticks country music festival. During the festival, both asked their music fans to vote for them on the show.

"Alabama is going to save us from elimination," Chuck said after earning 27 points for his samba on Monday's show. It seems he was right.

Here are the other scores that judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Toniolo awarded contestants on Monday night's show:

Rapper Lil' Kim and her partner Derek Hough had 26 for their rumba.

Gymnast Shawn Johnson and her partner Mark Ballas received 28 for the cha, cha, cha.

"Bachelor" contestant Melissa Rycroft and her partner Tony Dovolani earned 29 for their Argentine tango.

Actor Gilles Marini and his partner Cheryl Burke got 27 for their Viennese waltz.

Rodeo star Ty Murray and and his partner Chelsie Hightower had 24 for their waltz.
