The Dancing With the Stars 2012 elimination results for week 5 are in and we are bringing them to you right now! Who got voted off Dancing With the Stars on Tuesday night? Was it the low scoring couple many were predicting or was it a total surprise like last week when Sherri Shepherd unexpectedly got the boot? Read on to find out in our DWTS 2012 recap of Tuesday’s elimination results show!

This week on Dancing With the Stars 2012 was tough on the fans and the celebrities. Not only did we have a totally out of the blue elimination last week with Sherri Shepherd leaving far before her time, but the stars have also been plagued with numerous injuries over the past week. This left the fans worrying a great deal about their favorites, who might or might not actually end up competing this round and what might happen to them even if they did.

WARNING: DANCING WITH THE STARS 2012 SPOILERS AHEAD

First we had Maria Menounos with her cracked ribs and broken foot. Then we had Melissa Gilbert with whiplash and a mild concussion after slamming her head on the floor during the live DWTS 2012 performance show last week. Following that, we got reports that Latin heart-throb William Levy had hurt his ankle “pretty bad” in rehearsals over the weekend for this week’s show. Yikes!

Luckily, all the celebrities were able to perform on Monday night despite their injuries. In fact, William Levy absolutely killed it with his dance, landing in a first place tie with the judges for the night with Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas.

Not doing so well on Latin night, Dancing With the Stars 2012 cast members Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff, floundered in the bottom two spots with the judges. Gavin DeGraw and Melissa Gilbert are also the two DWTS 2012 cast members raked the lowest overall in the judges’ scores for the season.

So, if we were going to go by the scores, and whose performances were the worst on Latin night this week, it would have seemed clear to me that either Gavin DeGraw or Melissa Gilbert should go home. However, the voters have already proven they are unpredictable and it was really anyone’s guess who would actually end up in the bottom two.

Plus, this week, there was an additional twist because whoever did end up in the bottom two were forced to battle it out in a special dance-off for the judges. Whoever came out on top would end up with a pass through to the next round, and the other celebrity would be out the door in this week’s DWTS 2012 elimination results. So making a prediction for the one who got voted off Dancing With the Stars 2012 this time wasn’t easy!

To open up Tuesday night’s Dancing With the Stars 2012 with a bit of humor, the judges ask to see Maria Menounos and Derek Hough perform their salsa again. This time, however, Derek doesn’t lay one on Maria in the middle of the dance, he slaps his kisser on judge Carrie Ann Inaba instead!

With that bit of silliness out of the way, let’s get on to some results!

The Dancing With the Stars 2012 cast members safe this week are:

Maria Menounos & Derek Hough
Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Gladys Knight & Tristan MacManus
William Levy & Cheryl Burke
Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas
Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd
Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower

Really? Melissa Gilbert is safe this week? Even with sympathy votes for the neck brace, she so doesn’t deserve to be safe after her performances so far on DWTS 2012.

Gavin DeGraw and Jaleel White are the two celebrities left in jeopardy to battle it out in a dance-off for the judges. Jaleel actually looks pretty good out there but Gavin still looks stiff and uncoordinated.

The judges are voting… and it is unanimous…

Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff are eliminated (finally).

That’s all she wrote for tonight. What do you think about the Dancing With the Stars 2012 elimination results for week 5? Let us know in the comments section below!
