R&B star Brandy fought back tears as she became the latest celebrity booted off U.S. reality TV show Dancing With The Stars on Tuesday (16Nov10).
The Boy Is Mine hitmaker competed against Jennifer Grey, Bristol Palin and Kyle Massey in the semi-final on Monday (15Nov10), but she was eliminated despite earning a perfect 30 for her Argentine Tango with professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Following her exit, she told viewers, "I'm in a lot of shock. But I'm very blessed to have been a part of something so amazing, where I can rediscover who I am, challenge myself and prove to myself that if I really commit to something and give it my all, I can be a success. I'm just so thankful to Maks. He taught me how to dance with confidence."
And Brandy admits she wants Massey to triumph in the contest's final next week (begs22Nov10), adding, "I'm really hoping for Kyle to win. I wish the best for Bristol and Jennifer as well, but if I could have my pick, it'll be Kyle."
