Big Dancing With the Stars Surprise: Lil Kim Eliminated!

at . Comments

Apparently there are more rodeo fans in the country than we realized.

This group banded together to save one of its own last night, as Ty Murray remained on Dancing with the Stars despite a weak Monday evening performance.

In his place, Lil Kim (and Derek Hough) were sent packing. The rapper and former convict took the news well, at least.

"I think this is one of the greatest experiences I've ever experienced in my life," she said, while Hough couldn't praise his partner enough:

"Amazing person, amazing soul, amazing spirit - and an amazing dancer."
