Shepherd performed a lackluster interpretation of the tango with her dance partner Val Chmerkovskiy on Monday night and received a score of 21 out of 30. After being voted off the show, Shepherd, who was visibly shaken and very emotional, cried as she delivered her parting speech.
“I just want to say thank you for letting me live a dream I’ve always had,” said Shepherd, 44, to the show’s co-host Brooke Burke Charvet. “I have the most amazing partner in Val Chmerkovskiy and I had the most amazing time. I want to say to every person out there: The thing that scares you the most, run towards it, because it’s so amazing on the other side.”
The other couple in the bottom two were Roshon Fegan and dance partner Chelsie Hightower. They earned the second-highest scores on Monday’s show.
Meanwhile, R&B diva Gladys Knight and her dance partner Gavin McGraw, who had the lowest scores after Monday night’s performance, were miraculously spared and are still holding on. Knight and her partner have been up for elimination on previous shows.
