After an emotion-laden episode of Dancing With the Stars, actor Gary Busey and his partner Anna Trebunskaya were eliminated from the dancing competition.

Despite his elimination, Busey said his elimination was not necessarily final.

"The fact that I've been eliminated is false," Gary Busey declared following the announcement that the dancing team were headed home. "You won't see us dancing, but we'll be there."

It was an entirely emotional night as the stars relived their most memorable year, and for many, their most memorable year was also one of their more difficult and heartbreaking years.

Bindi Irwin paid tribute to her father, Steve Irwin, in a beautiful dance with partner Derek Hough that left the judges holding back tears. Alek Skarlatos danced for his school, Umpqua Community College, after last week's unimaginable shooting, and Andy Grammer danced for his late mother, according to E! Online.

Bindi's gorgeous tribute to her father took the top score of the night and earned the first 10 from Bruno Tonioli.

Other highlights included a fun tribute by Nick Carter to his Backstreet Boys days. Social media star Hayes Grier earned a 27 out of 30 for his dance to Shawn Mendes' Stitches.

Here's the scores for the night:

Gary Busey and Anna Trebunskaya: 16/30
Paula Deen and Louis Van Amstel: 18/30
Alexa Vega and Mark Ballas: 21/30
Andy Grammer and Allison Holker: 23/30
Alek Skarlatos and Lindsay Arnold: 24/30
Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson: 988=25/30
Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess: 999=27/30
Tamar Braxton and Val Chmerkovskiy: 999=27/30
Hayes Grier and Emma Slater: 999=27/30
Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough: 9910=28/30
