ExploreTalent.com, a premier online social-network for talented individuals in the entertainment industry, announced a new blog on their news site today, titled, "Gavin DeGraw Eliminated from 'Dancing With the Stars,'" according to US Weekly on 4/18/12. The blog, (http://news.exploretalent.com/gavin-degraw-elilminated-from-dancing-with-the-stars/) reads: Goodbye Gavin DeGraw! That is what the judges of "Dancing With the Stars" said to the "Chariot" rock musician on Tuesday when they eliminated him from season 14th's competition (US Weekly 4/18/12). DeGraw, however, isn't too upset about being kicked off (US Weekly 4/18/12).
"It was like summer camp," he commented to US Weekly. "We made a lot of great friends and it was a great experience. You don't have to win a trophy to learn how to dance, so this is about stepping out, learning something new -- it's not about winning or losing all the time."
He added to US Weekly, "I'll miss the whole pressure element of this show. I don't necessarily enjoy the pressure all the time but pressure is good."
Currently, there are eight stars left in the competition: Maria Menounos, Roshon Fegan, Melissa Gilbert, Jaleel White, Gladys Knight, William Levy, Donald Driver, and Katherine Jenkins.
