Then, it's time for the big announcement. Tom DeLay comes forward and says that he will be leaving the competition. He says he got through last night on adrenaline, but after that, he realized he was in too much pain to continue. "You can't practice. And if you can't practice, you'll make a fool of yourself out here, and I don't want to do that to Cheryl." He adds that he would have been doing the Texas Two-Step next week and was really excited about it. Host Tom Bergeron says if Tom D. is feeling better later, he's invited to do the Texas Two-Step at the finale. Tom D. looks thrilled.
