Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd were the fifth pair to be sent home from Season 25 of “Dancing With The Stars” on Monday. They received the fewest number of votes combined from last week and this Monday’s shows. See the video below of their elimination.

In addition to Lachey and Murgatroyd, Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke as well as Victoria Arlen and Val Chmerkovkiy were in the bottom three. On last week’s show, the singer received 22 out of 30 points after he danced a quickstep to “The Bare Necessities” from The Jungle Book. Len Goodman called it “fun” and “entertaining.” Bruno Tonioli said, “I loved the speed of it.” “That was really enjoyable,” added Carrie Ann Inaba. But they each felt he made some mistakes.

For his final performance on this Monday’s “A Night At The Movies” show, Lachey performed a samba to Dru Hill, Will Smith and Kool Mo Dee’s “Wild Wild West.” Inaba didn’t really praise the dance, offering instead that Lachey’s growth trajectory has “slow and steady.” Tonioli offered, “The line dancing was fabulous,” but felt the actual samba moves fell short. “The solo stuff was terrific. You just need to take it to the samba part,” said Goodman. He also suggested Lachey relax and “just dance.” And guest judge Shania Twain noted, “The entertainment value was very high.” For his last dance, Lachey got a measly 26 out of 40 points. t wasn’t enough to keep him in the competition, and so the singer was voted off.

Even though his brother Drew was a previous “Dancing With The Stars” champ, and his wife Vanessa is still a contender for the Mirrorball Trophy, it was the end of the road for this Lachey, who was in jeopardy two previous times. He and Murgatroyd were the fifth pair eliminated from this season. As Gossip Cop previously reported, Sasha Pieterse and Gleb Savchenko were voted off “Dancing With The Stars” last week.

Their elimination followed Derek Fisher and Sharna Burgess’s exit. Right before them, Debbie Gibson and Alan Bersten were eliminated from “Dancing With The Stars.” And the first contestants booted from the show were Barbara Corcoran and Keo Motsepe. Watch the video below of Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd’s elimination from this season’s “Dancing With The Stars.”
