Marlee Matlin Signs Off

by at . Comments

Despite the fact that Fabian Sanchez was her partner, the mambo did in Marlee Matlin on Dancing with the Stars this week.

The Oscar-winning actress became the sixth contestant eliminated from season six of the show, but give credit to Matlin for delivering a farewell on last night's results show with as much heart as she put into her performances.

"All i can say is thank you to the judges.…I want to thank the magnificent Fabian for giving me the most beautiful art of dance in my life," she signed.

Obviously impressed by the contestant, Tom Bergeron stepped out of his role as cohost to praise Matlin during a nice moment:

"Marlee and I have known each other for years, and I want to step outside the host role for a moment and tell you as a friend I'm so proud of you."

Now, the march toward crowing Kristi Yamaguchi as the champion continues on Monday night.
