After a memorable four weeks on the dance reality show, fashion designer Betsey Johnson and her partner Tony Dovolani were voted out of "Dancing with the Stars" on Tuesday night.

The elimination took place after viewers were given the option to rate each dance by casting a vote within two minutes of each performance. And although they got a score of 29 from the judges for the jive, the audience votes weren't enough to save them.

Johnson seemed shocked with the result, but thanked everyone before bidding adieu from the show.

The night started with a lot of tension, as right at the beginning Johnson and Dovolani were told that they were in jeopardy, whereas Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy, and Jonathan Bennett and Allison Holker were immediately told they were safe.

The episode took many of the contestants on an emotional roller coaster, with contestant Bethany Mota recalling being bullied for her looks, Parrish talking about losing her vocal coach and Alfonso Ribeiro remembering his days on "Fresh Prince of Bel Air."

Analysing her performance on her DWTS blog for People magazine, Parrish said that although bagging perfect scores last week did not put additional pressure on them, they wanted to make their rumba performance something to remember by.

"I don't think getting perfect scores last week has added any pressure on us going into this week's performance," she wrote. "Every week, we start over with a new routine and a whole new dance, so we're just focusing on trying to make sure that this routine is amazing. If we get great scores again that would be amazing, but we're not trying to compete with our scores from last week. "

As for the other performances, Bennett and Holker's Samba was a homage to "Mean Girls", and Michael Waltrip and Emma Slater danced the quickstep. They danced to honour the year 2001, the same year he won the Daytona 500 and lost his friend Dale Earnhardt.

Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintsev's contemporary number was dedicated to her father, who died of cancer in 2003, and Antonio Sabato Jr. and his partner Cheryl Burke danced the samba to mark the year 1989, when he moved to America from Italy.

Tommy Chong celebrated his freedom by jiving to Elvis Presley with his partner Peta Murgatroyd, and "Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas' samba was in remembrance of the year "Duck Dynasty" first aired in 2012.
