Sherri Shepherd has been eliminated from Dancing with the Stars. The View host and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy was booted out of the show in a shock result after they earned 21 points - the second lowest score - the night before for their performance of the tango, with Gladys Knight and Gavin DeGraw widely expected to be out.

"I just want to say thank you for letting me live a dream I've always had. I had the most amazing partner, Val Chmerkovskiy. That thing that scares you the most, run towards it because it's so amazing on the other side. I had the most amazing time," she said, speaking through tears.
