Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi booted from 'Dancing'

Reality star gave tearful farewell to fans on Monday night's elimination


LOS ANGELES – It was an emotional goodbye on week seven of "Dancing With The Stars" Monday, as reality star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was eliminated from the competition.

"I can't even talk right now, but I love everybody here," Polizzi said tearfully to co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet to the news.

Polizzi and professional partner Sasha Farber had just received 27 points for their samba.  

Actors Corbin Bleu and Amber Riley are on top of the leader board with 29 points.  Riley was able to dance with professional partner Derek Hough, whose back injury threatened to keep him sidelined.

All eight celebrities danced twice, splitting up in two groups.  

Team Foxing Awesome (Bleu, Riley, Brant Daugherty and Jack Osbourne) received a perfect score of 30.  Team Spooky Bom Bom (Polizzi, Elizabeth Berkley Lauren, Leah Remini, and Bill Engvall) got 27 out of 30.

Music legend Cher will be a guest judge when the seven remaining celebrities return to the ballroom floor next Monday night.
