Dancing with the Stars kicked off season 11 with a snazzy bang – but ultimately one contestant had to be the first to hang up their dancing shoes.

In the end, it was down to just two couples on Tuesday night’s results show: David Hasselhoff and pro Kym Johnson and Kyle Massey and his pro Lacey Schwimmer. Ultimately, David Hasselhoff was the first celebrity to be voted off the ABC show.
“It’s been a great ride,” he said before taking another spin around the parquet. “I feel bad for Kym because she worked so hard to try and get me where I was going. I’m just so proud that my daughters are here and got to see me go this far. So, it’s great.”
Hasselhoff’s first dance on Monday’s show, a stiff cha cha, landed him in the bottom initially with only 15 points.
On Tuesday’s elimination show, the former Baywatch star was joined in the bottom by Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Kurt Warner. Both stars were deemed safe due to their combined scores – made up by judges’ points and viewers’ votes – leaving only Hasselhoff and Massey up for elimination.
