There she he goes — Babyface was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars. 

On Tuesday night, the Grammy Award-winning singer was kicked off the ABC dancing competition show with an emotional goodbye. “I got a chance to come out and dance for my mom,” the singer told the judges.

He added, “And my mom is proud today that I even came here… Allison [Holker] has been amazing. She’s taught me so many things, and I want to say that this experience it’s an amazing experience, learning to dance with everyone. The family here is amazing.”

The 57-year-old later shared a message to his fans on Twitter, writing: “Thank you to everyone for the support & my amazing partner for guiding me on this journey! It was fun .”

Babyface wasn’t the only star to be sent home — joining the singer, rapper Vanilla Ice. “Dancing makes you happy, and this is just a happy experience,” the rapper said after the elimination. “I’m honored to be here, and I appreciate all the fans and the people. It’s magical, but I appreciate (Witney) more than anything.”

Dancing with the Stars returns Monday at 8 p.m. ET.

A source at ABC also suggested that a “new deal will significantly increase her compensation and cautioned that Anderson and Ellis Ross’ roles aren’t equal given that he has been attached to Black-ish from the start and is an executive producer.”

Ross has yet to comment on the report, but if she does take a step back, this means the show will be more male dominated; after all, Zoe, played by Yara Shahidi, is now in college and has her own spinoff show, Grownish.
