Margaret Cho cries after 'DWTS' elimination

Comedian vows to continue dancing

Comedian Margaret Cho cried Tuesday after learning that she was eliminated from ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" but vowed to continue dancing.

"I thought the judges were really hard on me, but I think you were hard on me because you could see that I am a dancer for real," she said. "And I thank you for that. I will take that with me forever."

Cho and her professional partner, Louis Van Amstel, came into Tuesday's episode in last place, collecting only 18 points out of 30 for their samba.

"Thank you for the opportunity to let me dance," she said Tuesday. "I'm going to keep dancing."

Judges' scores are combined with viewer votes to determine which couple is ousted each week.

Cho was the third contestant eliminated this season, after David Hasselhoff and Michael Bolton.
