A few weeks after heating up the "Dancing with the Stars" competition with an on-screen kiss, rapper-turned-actor Romeo Miller has been dismissed from the weekly television elimination program.
Miller and dance partner Chelsie Hightower went home packing after last night's broadcast.
Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo? Probably out dancing at the nearest club with partner Chelsie Hightower after the two were eliminated on week 8 on "Dancing with the Stars, even though they did not have the lowest score from the judges after Monday night's individual dance and instant dance. Maybe it was his continual grumpy look that turned off viewers. "Anybody can go at any time," Romeo told host Tom Bergeron. "It changed my life ... anything is possible if you try." Then turning to Chelsie, he said with a tiny smile, "You know, we can still dance after this." And then with a real touch of class, Romeo shook hands with each of the judges before heading to the floor for his last dance. (Mercury News)
The entertainer also hit up his Twitter page to address the elimination.
"I was taught to never hold your head down if u go down fighting giving 100% & thats what I did!This #DWTS journey has def. been magical." (Romeo's Twitter)
Romeo and Chelsie turned up the heat in late April by lip locking during their performance.
Chelsie Hightower has insisted that her kiss with Romeo during their performance on last night's episode of Dancing with the Stars was unplanned. The pair received their highest scores to date after an emotional waltz to Celine Dion's 'My Heart Will Go On' as part of the show's 'Guilty Pleasures Night', during which they shared a kiss on the lips.

Following the kiss, both Romeo and Hightower gave their reactions.
"What I said tonight, basically, was, 'If you want to [kiss me], go ahead,'" Hightower told PEOPLE after the show. "You can do it on the cheek, forehead or lips - but you don't want to plan it too much." The pair, who danced to "My Heart Will Go On" fromTitanic, said the kiss added to the drama and intensity of the moment. "I think it was emotional," said Hightower. "I felt it." "I was in character," Romeo said. "I was feeling like Jack from Titanic." (PEOPLE)
