The Disney star and music legend danced for their lives in a duel set to the jive; while judge Carrie Ann Inaba chose Gladys, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli voted for Fegan to stay in, leaving the Midnight Train To Georgia singer on her way home.
“Of all the years that you’ve spent entertaining the world,” host Brooke Burke told the 67-year-old Georgia native, “you finally got your opportunity to dance.”
Gladys said she’s “just so amazed at this journey.
“It’s been absolutely extraordinary. I learned so many things … I’m just overjoyed,” the Empress of Soul said, adding her castmates “are already stepping up way, way, way beyond anything that’s ever been on this show.”
Dancing with the Stars‘ 14th season continues next Monday at 8/7c on ABC.
During an appearance Wednesday on ABC’s Good Morning America, Knight said Dancing with the Stars was like the fountain of youth for her, saying ”Everybody was so young at heart… It just makes you feel young and alive.”
