Video: Gavin DeGraw Kicked Off 'Dancing with the Stars'

'Dancing with the Stars' had a surprising elimination on Tuesday and its first “dance duel” (video below).

'Dancing with the Stars' has instituted a new rule in which the two couples in jeopardy of elimination have to participate in a dance-off, after which the judges decide who to send home.

The first pairs forced back onto the ballroom floor for a shot at redemption were Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff and Jaleel White & Kim Johnson.

After the simultaneous dances, the judges unanimously decided White & Johnson deserved to stay in the competition, which meant DeGraw & Smirnoff were forced to go home.
