Marlee Matlin was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars last night in the most shocking results show of the season.
Matlin has been the inspiration behind the season, not only because she had never done ballroom dancing before, but because she couldn’t hear the music she was dancing to. The Oscar winner (in 1986 for Children of a Lesser God) has been deaf all of her life.
After hearing the news, she signed, “You know what? All I can say is thank you to the judges. I have the utmost respect for you and I want to thank the most magnificent Fabian for giving me the most beautiful art of dance in my life,” through her interpretor.
Week 7 of the competition continues on Monday night at 7 o’clock on ABC.
