Michael Bolton eliminated from 'DWTS'

Judge: Singer had 'probably the worst' performance ever

Michael Bolton got the boot from "Dancing With the Stars" on Tuesday after performing what one judge called the "probably the worst" performance ever in the show's 11 seasons.

The singer came into Tuesday's episode in last place, earning only 12 out of 30 points for his "Hound Dog"-themed jive with pro partner Chelsie Hightower.

Judge Bruno Tonioli said he hated the dance and thought it was "probably the worst" in the show's 11 seasons.

Before learning his fate, Bolton said he thought Tonioli's remarks were "inappropriate and disrespectful."

"Other than that, it was a phenomenal experience up 'til now," the 57-year-old singer said.

Bolton is the second contestant eliminated from this season of "Dancing" following David Haselhoff's ouster last week.
