After all 13 remaining couples delivered their performances on Tuesday's Disney Villains Night, host Tyra Banks revealed which three couples were in the bottom two. It came down to Burgess and Green, Kenya Moore and Brandon Armstrong, and Matt James and Lindsay Arnold.
Having earned the lowest combined score from the judges and lowest total number of viewer votes, Green and Burgess got the axe without getting a chance to be saved by the judges. Ultimately, the judges voted and James was the second celebrity of the evening to get the boot.
Burgess and Green took the elimination in stride as they smiled and waved to the audience while exiting the stage after Banks revealed their fate.
The elimination didn't seem to be too much of a surprise for the pair after their lackluster scores for their waltz on Monday and for Tuesday's paso doble.
For Villains Night -- which was better received from the judges -- the pair hit the dance floor to deliver a Pirates of the Caribbean-inspired number. Green was decked out as Captain Barbossa, while Burgess took on the Jack Sparrow role.
ET spoke with judge Carrie Ann Inaba after Tuesday's show, where she admitted to being surprised by the couple's exit.
"I think tonight was shocking cause everybody's doing so well," she said. "Disney night is sort of magic, and there was this sort of magic and everybody ups their game. So when the evening comes around, it does sort of feel unexpected. I felt like a little slap in the face, like whoa, wait, OK."
Inaba added, "I will say this, I think it's not easy to work with someone that you're in a relationship with, so I give them so much credit for being so professional and so elegant out there every time. Sharna's like family, right, to all of us. So the beautiful thing is although we're judging the dance, we're all happy for her and her personal life."
"When we first started dating she always said that one of her dreams with me was, 'Hey, we'll dance together one day.' And then [I realized], if I suck at this, she's gonna have to write off that dream and be like, 'Oh, we'll get into skydiving I guess,'" Green said. "I didn't want her to have to write that dream off because I was terrible at it."
