Previously eliminated from Season 9 of the show were singer Macy Gray and actor Ashley Hamilton.
"I wouldn't change a minute of it," Ireland, who had been partnered with professional dancer Tony Dovolani for the show, told People magazine after learning their fate. "To be able to work with Tony the past six weeks has changed my life forever. I can do so many things I never thought I could do. I feel like the biggest winner because I got him as my teacher."
