Wayne Newton Goes Back to Vegas

Las Vegas showman Wayne Newton is the latest celeb to be voted off 'Dancing With the Stars', completing only three weeks on the hit ballroom dance show.

"I’ve had a wonderful time!" Newton told PEOPLE after learning his fate. "I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I think that obviously we all want to stay longer [but] I’m leaving here a lot better than I came here with — and that is new friends and a great respect for all these people."

His two-time show champion partner Cheryl Burke couldn’t hide her disappointment, calling the early departure a “bummer.” “I wanted to continue on but you know if it’s our time, it’s our time, but I’ve had the most enjoyable experience,” she said.
