Michael Bolton was voted off Dancing With the Stars the day after performing what judge Bruno Tonioli called the worst jive he'd seen in the show's 11 seasons. Bolton—who scored just 12 out of 30 points for the dance with partner Chelsie Hightower—called the judge's remarks "inappropriate and disrespectful ," the AP reports. "Other than that, it was a phenomenal experience up 'til now," he said.

Tuesday's nights show addressed reports that Sarah Palin had been booed by the crowd when she appeared Monday night. A previously unaired clip was shown indicating that the audience was actually booing the score of 24 judges gave Jennifer Gray and David Hough just before Palin was introduced. Host Tom Bergeron told the judges that Palin "was surprised by the controversy because she was booing you guys too." (More Michael Bolton stories.)
