Chuck Wicks, Julianne Hough Exit Dancing With the Stars

Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough have been voted off Dancing With the Stars. Their departure came at the end of Tuesday night’s (April 28) show after a combination of viewers’ votes and judges’ scores failed to keep them in the televised dance competition for another week. Wicks competed as a celebrity while Hough, his girlfriend who was also his dance partner, was featured as a professional dancer. Hough has announced plans to devote more attention to her career as a country singer and will not be a weekly participant in the show’s next season. “To all the critics that thought we weren’t going to last: We did it,” Wicks said at the end of Tuesday’s broadcast. “Now I’m going to go out on tour and enjoy doing what I love, and that’s country music.” Remaining contestants include rodeo champ Ty Murray, who is married to country singer Jewel, who dropped out of Dancing With the Stars because of an injury she sustained before the season began.
