This season (Season 14) of Dancing With the Stars is seeming to be very cutthroat, especially with the bar being raised very high. Eliminated last night during the results (Week 7), Jaleel White, well-known actor and comedian (mostly known as Family Matters' Steve Urkel) lost the final dance battle against his opponent Roshon Fegan, a Disney Channel star.

Jaleel White (who was paired with Australian dancer Kym Johnson) has experienced a bumpy ride during this season, overcoming a roller coaster of judges comments from week to week. This week, Jaleel ended up in the bottom two finalists again, and was no stranger to this season's introduced dance duel, where the bottom two couples dance side by side simultaneously to impress the judges for them to stay.

To view week 7's dance duel (Rumba) between Jaleel White and Roshon Fegan, please view the YouTube video below.

From a dance technique perspective, I do have to agree with the judges that Roshon (and partner Chelsie Hightower) did have a stronger, more content-filled, and fluid Rumba than Jaleel and Kym, even though there was some improvement with Jaleel's arms and lines (as noted in the video clip).

The Twitterverse has been active in reacting to Jaleel's departure from this season, and I have provided some of their reactions below for you to view.

Aww so sad to see Jaleel go home 🙁 On the bright side I'm happy to see Roshon come back! He deserves it! #dwts(image) 13 hours ago via Twitter for Android ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Jaleel is the best! I do not like the dance duel. Let's just stick with lowest votes and not bias judges. #DWTS(image) 14 hours ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Why can't Jaleel White just accept that if he dressed and danced as Steve Urkel he'd win #dwts?(image) 10 minutes ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

I can't believe Jaleel White was eliminated before Melissa Gilbert. She is horrible. #DWTS(image) 17 hours ago via Tweetbot for iOS ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto
