Singer Gladys Knight and her partner Tristan MacManus perform Monday on the celebrity dance competetion series, "Dancing with the Stars," in Los Angeles. They were eliminated Tuesday night.

Soul singer Knight dismissed from 'Dancing'

LOS ANGELES — Gladys Knight has been dethroned on "Dancing with the Stars." The Empress of Soul was bounced from the ABC ballroom competition Tuesday after losing a "dance duel" to Roshon Fegan. The 67-year-old singer and 20-year-old Disney Channel star ended up in the bottom two after the judges' scores were combined with viewers' votes. Knight earned the lowest score for her rumba and marathon dance on Monday's Motown-themed installment. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba chose to save Knight, but panelists Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman rescued Fegan. Returning with Fegan to compete next week will be actors Jaleel White, William Levy and Melissa Gilbert; singer Katherine Jenkins; TV personality Maria Menounos; and football star Donald Driver.
