A 1992 and 1994 Olympic Silver medalist, Nancy Kerrigan was eliminated from the Dancing with the Stars along with her partner Artem Chigvintsev on the 7th week. The duo failed to secure their place to the final five counting the combined votes of the judges and fans.

Their performance on "Oh! Pretty Woman" tango had fourth best of seven scores. Followed by that, the duo lost the dance-off against Simone Biles and his partner, Sasha Farber which increased the chance of their elimination. Biles and Farber made their place to the final five.

Kerrigan, after the elimination said to Good Morning America:

I guess I was a little shocked, just because I really wanted to get to the end. I want to keep moving and learn more, but I knew every week there’s always that chance. I don’t know. It’s just part of the game, I guess.
