margaret cho 'Dancing With the Stars': Margaret Cho hangs up her dancing shoesComedienne Margaret Cho was the third celebrity sent home from “Dancing With the Stars” on Tuesday (Oct. 5). Cho cried after she and partner Louis Van Amstel were eliminated, but she thanked the judges for being hard on her.

Cho and Van Amstel’s samba only garnered an 18 out of 30 after Monday night’s performances, despite Cho’s rainbow dress that she wore  to promote pride and self-acceptance. Judge Bruno Tonioli said he liked the pride dress, but could not overlook her dancing.

The results show also featured performances by Ne-Yo and last week’s eliminee Michael Bolton, who performed “Hallelujah” with a children’s choir.

What did you think? Did Margaret Cho deserve to go?
