Lil' Kim's Bionic Booty Booted Off 'Dancing with the Stars'

How is it possible that Lil' Kim and her bodacious booty were shown the door last night on Dancing with the Stars? I think we can all agree that, by all rights, it should have been Ty Murray to have been voted off this week, and there's some indignation surfacing among Lil' Kim's fans.

However, even though Lil' Kim didn't quite make it to the end of the season, falling short just one week shy of the semi-finals, it's safe to say that she has been one of the great success stories on Dancing with the Stars this season. Hopefully, she also managed to earn some money to offset her major debt too.

Since the beginning of the season, Lil' Kim has been one of the most entertaining stars to watch. Her enthusiasm was infectious, and the good will she projected toward her fellow competitors and the audience was enough to power a small nation. You never saw a look of displeasure on her face - a breath of fresh air since Denise Richards' pout-a-thon.

I know that people are saying that Ty Murray is the most improved dancer in the competition, but actually, I'm going to give that award to Lil' Kim. She went from getting 7s and tepid praise from the judges, to topping the leaderboard. Despite her diminutive size, she danced with Derek Hough like a pro.

She will sorely be missed from the competition. And with that, let us remember Lil' Kim's career on Dancing with the Stars in the slideshow below.
