NEW YORK, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- U.S. singer-dancer-producer Willa Ford and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were the fifth couple eliminated on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."
Ford and Chmerkovskiy joined TV talk show host Jerry Springer and Kym Johnson as the bottom two couples who faced elimination based on judges' scores and viewer voting, said "Dancing with the Stars" Web site, WCPO TV in Cincinnati and Reality TV magazine.
The audience booed when it was announced that Ford and Chmerkovskiy were eliminated, reports said.
The top two couples in the third "Dance" session were former "Save by the Bell" star Mario Lopez and his partner Karina Smirnoff and "High School Musical" co-star Monique Coleman and Louis Van Amstel, the reports said.
Springer and Johnson danced an encore samba to "Hot Legs" performed by musical guest Rod Stewart, who also did a cover of "Fooled Around and Fell in Love," reports said.
