Gladys Knight has become the fifth celebrity to leave season 14 of Dancing with the Stars.
The singer and professional partner Tristan McManus fell into the bottom two alongside Disney star Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower when the judges' scores and viewer votes were combined.

Knight said: "I am so just amazed at this journey, it's been absolutely extraordinary, I learnt so many things, found so many friends and family and I'm just so overjoyed."
She said that the other couples were "stepping up way, way, way beyond what's already been on this show".
Both pairs performed a simultaneous jive to Queen's 'Don't Stop Me Now' to determine who would stay in the competition.
The panel chose to save Fegan and Hightower based solely on the 'dance-off' performance, with Tonioli given the casting vote.
Knight finished bottom of this week's Digital Spy reader poll with 3.4% of the vote, with Fegan on 7.9%.
This week's AT&T Spotlight profiled ballet dancer Michaela De Prince, who danced to Natasha Bedingfield's 'Wild Horses'. Boyz II Men also made an appearance, delivering a rendition of new single 'One More Dance' from their album Twenty.
Dancing with the Stars airs on Mondays and Tuesdays on ABC.
