Gladys Knight may not have won the mirror ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars, but she does have something to brag about – a slim new figure!

The soul singer, 67, says she started a health program shortly before partnering up with Tristan MacManus for the show, and since then, she's shed a whopping 60 lbs.

"[Tristan] helped [by] wearing me out," Knight told reporters with a laugh backstage after she was eliminated on Tuesday night, adding that Freshology's Getslim with the Stars program helped her lose weight.

Jaleel White and partner Kym Johnson got their groove back with a crowd-pleasing cha cha on Dancing with the Stars Monday – but some other contestants struggled to keep up with the competition.

Finding themselves in the bottom two once again, Roshon Fegan and partner Chelsie Hightower lacked sex appeal with their 23-point rumba. Meanwhile, Gladys Knight and partner Tristan MacManus scored an underwhelming 21 points for their rumba.

Dancing with the Stars: Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff Eliminated

Originally posted 04/17/2012 10:15PM

Just as Dancing with the Stars's competition was starting to look up last week for Karina Smirnoff and partner Gavin DeGraw, they once again sunk to the bottom of the leaderboard after Monday night's 19-point samba.

They've been saved in prior weeks after low scores, but will fans' votes once again be enough to keep the pair on the show? The second lowest scores of the night went to Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his recovering partner Melissa Gilbert, who earned 21 points for their samba. Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus were one point above them with a score of 22 for their samba.

Dancing with the Stars Couples Light Up Latin Night

After Sherri Shepherd's shocking elimination on Dancing with the Stars last week, the remaining contestants felt the pressure and turned up the heat for Latin Night in the ballroom on Monday.

Taking on the salsa, samba and the Argentine tango, nine couples performed hip-shaking routines that were in some cases downright steamy.

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough performed one of the night's sexiest routines, sealing their salsa with a controversial kiss. "That was hot," Carrie Ann Inaba said, but "I don't think you needed the kiss ... Dance is about the illusion of passion."

Gladys Knight may be one of the top soul singers of all time, but her tango on Rock Week at Dancing with the Stars only received 20 points from the judges, landing her at the bottom of the pack Monday night.

Did her performance with partner Tristan MacManus send them both packing? Or did Gavin DeGraw and partner Karina Smirnoff – who improved this week, but have been regulars in the bottom two so far this season – get the boot? Or did a favorite who happened to have an off night end up going home instead?
