Gary Busey bid adieu to Dancing With the Stars on Monday night, a couple of weeks after he likely should have been voted off the show. Following his and dance partner Anna Trebunskaya's elimination, he issued a very Gary Busey-like statement.

“The fact that I’ve been eliminated is false,” he said following the announcement of his elimination. “You won’t see us dancing, but we’ll be there.”

Whether Gary Busey meant this cryptically or plans to be in the audience with Anna Trebunskaya watching the remaining couples compete is a bit uncertain. Those who follow Gary Busey are likely not surprised.

Busey's performance for the night was a Buddy Holly-inspired routine. He and Trebunskaya received just 16 points total--the lowest total of the evening.

The top score on Monday night of Dancing With the Stars went to Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough. The couple danced to a poignant rendition of The Police's "Every Breath You Take," in a sweet, emotional tribute to her late father.

Tom Bergeron was absent from Dancing With the Stars on Monday evening. He left the show to be by his ailing, elderly father's bedside. Last season's winner, Alfonso Ribeiro filled in for Bergeron. He should have been sent home instead of Gary Busey.

Did you catch Monday night's episode of Dancing With the Stars? Who did you think was less annoying--Alfonso Ribeiro or Gary Busey?
