On a season rife with shocking eliminations, "Dancing With the Stars" gave "Saved By the Bell" alum Elizabeth Berkley the boot Monday night despite a perfect score on her waltz.

Berkley was sent packing in the ninth week of competition, even though the judges raved about her routine with pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy. Eliminations on the ABC reality competition show are based on a combination of last week's scores and viewer votes, and Berkley just didn't have enough oomph to outlast fan favorite, comedian Bill Engvall.

"I'm not someone who ever feels entitled to anything, [but] I just felt like we were working so hard, we had just hit this really beautiful rhythm and we were getting great, great scores as you said. So I was a little surprised, sad, I have to admit. Disappointed, just because I felt like we had more dances in us," Berkley, 41, told "Good Morning America" Tuesday after her elimination.

Engvall, who's been consistently making it through round after round despite his lackluster scores from the judges, landed at the bottom of the leader board with his "offbeat" Charleston and "so weird" trio performance.

With the Mirror Ball Trophy being awarded in just two weeks, "High School Musical" star Corbin Bleu is a definite contender. His trio jazz performance to Usher's "Yeah" earned the ultimate compliment from judge Carrie Ann Inaba: "That may be the best routine I've ever seen in all 17 seasons."

Jack Osbourne also did not disappoint, as his Viennese waltz garnered two perfect 10s.

"Glee" star Amber Riley and actress Leah Remini round out the Top 5.
