“Dancing With the Stars” saw the loss of one of the most talked about contestants.
Billy Dee Williams announced he’d been leaving the show due to a back problem. “I’ve had a wonderful, brilliant, fantastic, blast of a time,” said the actor, 76, adding that working with pro Emma Slater was “pure joy.”
No one was eliminated due to Williams’ withdrawal from the competition.
The “Star Wars” actor, despite receiving the lowest score from judges early on, managed to get enough viewer votes to survive the first part of the show.
