Dancing With the Stars Says Goodbye to Aaron Carter

at . Comments

Aaron Carter and Karina Smirnoff had a quality run on season nine of Dancing With the Stars.

But it came to an end this week, as the pair was voted off the competition last night.

The 21-year old singer handled his elimination very well. He said:

"One thing I will always remember and take from this competition is definitely the lessons that I've learned. I've grown so much with your compliments and your criticisms, so thank you. Thank you for helping me to be able to grow on this show."

We've never heard judge Len Goodman offer such praise to a departing contestant.

After Carter was given the boot, Goodman said:

"I think the dedication that you have shown week after week is absolutely fantastic. I think you're an inspiration to all young people that anything is possible, and if you were my son, I would be so proud of you. But more important, you be proud of yourself, because you've been great."

Who do you think will take home the trophy now: Kelly, Mya, Donny or Joanna?
