DWTS: D.L. Hughley is stoked to be eliminated
Nine remaining couples hit the dance floor and faced an exciting new challenge on Monday.

It's been a rough ride for comedian D.L. Hughley, and last night it finally ended. The funnyman was voted off 'Dancing with the Stars' during Tuesday's elimination episode -- something that elated him so much, he used a word not suitable for TV.

"F--- yeah," Hughely answered when asked if he was relieved to be leaving the show, which he's previously criticized for being too mean, at one point calling the judges "bullies."

Other cast members who were relieved by Hughley's departure included Andy Dick, who has also been struggling and tied with Hughley for last place, and soap star Ingo Rademacher, whose performance was clunky and slow. 

Predictably, Kellie Pickler and 16-year-old Zendaya again vied for the top spot, turning in their usual electric performances.
