Belinda Carlisle the First Star Eliminated from "Dancing with the Stars 8"
On Tuesday, "Go-Go's" lead singer Belinda Carlisle became the first celebrity voted off "Dancing with the Stars 8". On Monday's performance show twelve of the thirteen stars danced live for viewer votes. "Jackass" star Steve-O had hurt his back and couldn't perform live so dress rehearsal footage was shown instead. Gilles Marini landed at the top of the judge's leader board with a 51 out of 60. Belinda came in tenth while Apple founder Steve Wozniak finished last. When the viewer votes were added it was revealed that Belinda and Steve were the bottom two and had to compete in a "Dance-Off". The judges rated Belinda one point less than her original dance but didn't alter Steve's score. When the results were tabulated Belinda came up short and was booted from the competition. Who will be the next star going home? Tune in next week to find out!
