A score of 17 just isn't going to cut it. Andy Dick, who surprisingly lasted this long, learned that lesson Tuesday night when he and his pro-partner, Sharna Burgess, were eliminated on "Dancing with the Stars."

The news followed the pair's low-scoring performances this season, capped with a rumba that landed them at the bottom with 17 points on Monday night.

Also in "jeopardy" on Tuesday were former soap star Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson, along with Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff. In the end, the "DWTS" crew said goodbye to Dick, who was fighting back tears when he said, "I've been talking from day one, it's been the best...The fact that we're here on week seven is amazing." Dick probably wasn't alone with that sentiment.

The actor/comedian then joked about judge Carrie Ann Inaba giving him a low score, saying, "I'm going to kill you for that five. What did you do? It's all your fault." His dance partner was grateful for the experience, saying, "I couldn't have a had a better first season as a pro."

But the real emotional moment of the night came with a tribute to Adrianne Haset, a dance instructor who lost her foot in the Boston Marathon bombings.

"It was a beautiful Boston day, all of a sudden the bomb went off maybe four feet from where we were standing," she said. "We landed on the ground and I thought, 'I think I'm going to be okay, I'm not in any pain,' and then I tried to move my leg and I couldn't. I remember the smell and I remember the smoke thinking I was going to die." But Hest, who had her leg amputated halfway to the knee, vowed to dance again, saying, "I will do what ever it takes to dance again."
