Posted on November 8, 2010

jimi_leaving2Jimi Mistry made a tearful exit from “Strictly Come Dancing”, when he and partner Flavia Cacace became the fifth couple voted out of this series.

The judges’ scores for their quickstep put the couple fourth on the “Strictly” leaderboard, with 32 points – Jimi’s highest score of the series. Judge Bruno Tonioli called the elimination “a moment of madness” from the voting public.  “His performance was beautiful, very entertaining. I don’t see it as him deserving to be in the bottom two.”

Jimi seemed too overcome to speak when he was voted out, and instead danced his final dance with Flavia, to a standing ovation from the judges and the studio audience.
