Two emotions came to mind for Christina Milian following her surprising elimination on Monday night's Dancing with the Stars.
"I'm sad … I'm shocked," she told PEOPLE backstage. "After our performance tonight [and] getting those scores, I thought, hey, even if we are in the bottom, our score can help us stay in the game. But I guess based on votes from last week, you know, [we] just didn't make the cut … Even the audience was like, 'huh?' It was quite a reaction … I wasn't expecting [to be eliminated], but it's okay."
Fighting back tears, Milian, 32, who scored the first 10 of the season with partner Mark Ballas, reflected fondly on her experience on the ABC show.

She came to inspire and enjoy the party.
And into week four of Dancing with the Stars Valerie Harper did just that and much more, sending a message of hope by savoring life after she was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year.
But on Monday night, sentiment finally yielded to the cold criteria of judging. After another low-scoring performance – this time an 18-point waltz – the 74-year-old star of TV's Rhoda was voted off the show.

After a couple of underwhelming seasons, Dancing with the Stars has found its rhythm again.
From Valerie Harper to Snooki to Jack Osbourne – all named Wednesday as contestants – the ABC show rebounds with one of the strongest lineups in years competing in the 17th season beginning Sept. 16.
Harper, whose brain cancer is close to remission, and her pro partner Tristan MacManus will square off against former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson and Sharna Burgess, actress Leah Remini – who recently made headlines with her split from Scientology – and pro Tony Dovolani, and reality star Osbourne and Cheryl Burke.

Christina Milian is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Jas Prince.
The couple, who've reportedly been dating since 2010, have been engaged since before May, a source close to Milian confirms to PEOPLE, saying, "He's a great match for her."
Guess the reports that the Rap-A-Lot Records CEO had popped the question back in April when Milian, 31, was spotted wearing a huge diamond ring were true, but the singer played coy, saying, "Well, there are rumors, but we'll stick to it being a rumor."

Where do broken hearts go? To the club!
Rihanna spent Saturday night at Hollywood nightclub Playhouse, where the singer and other stars were on hand to celebrate the launch of Pink + Dolphin's flagship store.
During the evening, the "Where Have You Been" singer was stationed at her own VIP table across from ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. Brown sat with Christina Milian and Sean Kingston as Chief Keef performed.
Although Rihanna, who recently told Oprah she "still loves" Brown, was surrounded by friends, her mind seemed to be elsewhere. The 24-year-old slowly sipped drinks, while "pretending to dance and mingle," but kept her eyes on "all the fun Chris and Christina were having," a source tells PEOPLE.
Rob Kardashian later took a seat at Rihanna's table where he got a little flirty with her and shared a few laughs, says a source. But, "you could tell she really just wanted Chris to pay attention and talk to her, but he was totally ignoring her," the source adds.
