Dancing with the Stars


And Dancing With the Stars has a semifinal lineup.

Another twinkly toed celeb was booted from the ballroom Tuesday after failing to impress America with either a proper dahnce or a saucy 15-second solo.

Find out who will be sitting on the sidelines rather than dancing it out for a spot in the finale:

Maurice Greene couldn't quite make it to the finish line this time.

The world-record-holding Olympic sprinter was eliminated from DWTS tonight, not being able to go the distance despite a late-season surge.

"This was a lot of fun," Greene, 34, said afterward. "I met a lot of new friends out here. I learned how to dance in front of millions of people every night. I had a great time."

And although there are TV appearances to come during the next couple weeks, at least Cheryl Burke can back away from a spotlight that has been more scrutinizing than ever before.

"You've been the hardest working partner I've ever had. You'll always be the winner-winner-chicken-dinner in my heart," the two-time DWTS winner told her now former partner, referring to the signature phrase he was spouting earlier in the competition.

So with that decision made for them, into next week's semifinals go Brooke Burke and Derek Hough, Warren Sapp and Kym Johnson, Lance Bass and Lacey Schwimmer, and Cody Linley and Julianne Hough, who returned to the show tonight and proved that she's still in top form by teaming up with brother Derek for a muy energetic jive.

The sibling syncopation continued with Lacey's brother, So You Think You Can Dance winner Benji Schwimmer, leading his sis in a West Coast swing number to the tune of musical guest Brad Paisley's hit single "Ticks."

Other information imparted tonight: Maksim Chmerkovskiy, he of the big mouth and nimble feet, will be choreographing the upcoming installment of Dancing With the Stars—The Tour.

So, do you think voters got it right this time? And who would do you think deserves to make it all the way through to the finals?
