Goodbye, Niecy Nash.

It was time for the comedian and host of “Clean House” to bow out on Dancing with the Stars, when Nash and partner Louis Van Amstel were eliminated on the one-hour results show on Tuesday. Their Paso Doble (video above) got the coolest reaction from the judges, and the duo proved to be the odd couple out in week eight, just missing the show’s semifinal.

Who’s left on the hot seat? After a rough performance on Monday night, NFL wide receiver Chad Ochocinco and partner Cheryl Burke were spared elimination. They received a score of 45 out of 60 for their waltz, enough to place them in the bottom two. The pace setters of the evening were singer Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough, whose fox trot rendition scored them a 59. Also remaining in contention for week nine: Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek and ESPN personality Erin Andrews.
