Billy Ray goes away

May 9, 2007 at 12:26 PM

LOS ANGELES, May 9 (UPI) -- U.S. country singer Billy Ray Cyrus' appearance on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" ended on a sour note.

Cyrus and Karina Smirnoff managed just a combined score of 38 for their foxtrot and mambo, prompting judge Bruno Tonioli to call his dancing "crap."

Cyrus responded that Tonioli was "so rude," E! News reported.

"We tried really hard and worked really hard ... ," Cyrus said. "He called me a southern gentleman. He needs to take a lesson on southern gentlemen."

So with Cyrus dancing into the sunset, it leaves Ian Ziering, Joey Fatone, Laila Ali and Apolo Anton Ohno for next week's semifinals.
