Marlee Matlin voted off "Dancing with the Stars"

Marlee Matlin voted off "Dancing with the Stars" Another celebrity bites the dust at the elimination round of "Dancing with the Stars", Marlee Matlin was voted off the show on Tuesday. The actress lost her timing at various points during her mambo on Monday and Marlee Matlin with professional partner Fabian Sanchez got just 21 points out of 30 possible after the "Dancing with the Stars" results were announced on Tuesday. After combining the judges' scores and the public votes, Marlee Matlin was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars. "You know what? All I can say is thank you to the judges. I have the utmost respect for you and I want to thank the most magnificent Fabian for giving me the most beautiful art of dance in my life," Marlee Matlin said after she learned the results. The fact that Matlin was voted off Dancing with the Stars was a bit shocking, considering she was listed with comfortable odds 16/1 to win the dance competition at the online sportsbook BodogSports. Before the results show, underdog was Marissa Jaret Winokur with odds 60/1. Kristi Yamaguchi is still the ultimate favorite to win Dancing with the Stars with odds 7/8, but Jason Taylor is quickly closing in with odds 7/5.

 Tuesday's results show also included a performance by Ashlee Simpson, who flashed her new engagement ring as she sang a track called "Boys" from her new "Bittersweet World" album. The Riverdance Irish step-dancing troupe showed off their fast footwork, and two more teams of tots took the floor in the three-week-old "ballroom kids" competition.
