The country singer and his real-life girlfriend and professional dance partner Julianne Hough were eliminated from the ABC dance-off Tuesday.

Wicks had improved steadily throughout the season, earning praise from the judges for his "hip action" and fun-loving attitude. He came into Tuesday's results show with a solid 51 points out of 60, but fans failed to keep him afloat.

The 29-year-old Wicks said he intends to return to music and touring.
