Dancing With The Stars NZ's latest eliminated contestant leaves with a positive message

goss 27/05/2019

It wasn't a fourth-time lucky for singer K'Lee who was eliminated on tonight's episode of Dancing with the Stars NZ.

The Mai FM radio host had been in the bottom two dance-off twice before, and saved both times by judges when she competed against Anna Wilcox and Walter Neilands. 

However, tonight's bottom two which saw this week's top scoring celebrity Laura Daniel in the dance-off, it was a strong three-vote favour to save the comedian over K'Lee.

"When I first came on the show I thought I was dancing for charity but this has actually done so much for me," said K'Lee after her elimination.

"I don't know if you guys know but I had a baby seven months ago, well cut in half, and I'm gutted we didn't get move of the week."

"Do you know how hard it is to do a backflip with a C-section?" she joked.

She acknowledged the beauty and love she had found on the dance floor, and thanked the judges for their professionalism, her partners, her four children, her dance partner Scott, and the Revolution Tour charity.

"I need you guys to know that it's okay to ask for help, you're smart, you're brave. It's not a sign of weakness."

K'Lee's elimination leaves six stars remaining in the competition, with the season finale coming up in three week's time.

The next episode of DWTS NZ returns Sunday at 7pm on Three. The full episode can be watched again on ThreeNow.
