Phillips gets the boot from DWTS

Chynna Phillips admitted she was disappointed to be leaving

Singer Chynna Phillips is the latest contestant to be sent home from Dancing With The Stars - after forgetting her routine during this week's performance.

The Wilson Phillips star lost her place in the middle of her tango with professional partner Tony Dovolani and wasn't able to recover.

"I'm disappointed," she said after learning she'd be leaving the US show. "I'm sad, but I have to take responsibility. I messed up."

Chynna added: "I blanked. I knew that routine. I just blanked."

Her husband, actor Billy Baldwin, who has cheered her on from the ballroom each week, said his wife had "stumbled out of the gate and had her first bad week in four weeks".

Chynna was among this week's lowest scorers. Carson Kressley, who was in last place with 20 points, and Chaz Bono, who tied with Chynna, were saved by viewer votes to dance another week.

Also returning next week to dance to 1980s hits will be Ricki Lake, JR Martinez, David Arquette, Nancy Grace, Rob Kardashian and Hope Solo.

Chynna is the fourth contestant eliminated so far on this season of the hit dance competition show. Metta World Peace (formerly known as Ron Artest), Elisabetta Canalis and Kristin Cavallari were ousted on previous episodes.

Tuesday's results show also featured performances by Britain's Got Talent star Susan Boyle and Raphael Saadiq, and the return of two-time Dancing champion Julianne Hough.

The professional dancer-turned-actress showed off some of the moves she'll be rocking when the remake of Footloose opens in cinemas. Julianne and co-star Kenny Wormald danced to I Need A Hero before Blake Shelton offered his take on the movie's title song.
