'Dancing With the Stars' shocker: Lil' Kim voted off

We demand a recount!

Who in their right mind would vote to send the wooden cowboy

Ty Murray

to the "Dancing With the Stars" semifinals?

Apparently lots of people did because when it came down to Murray and rapper

Lil' Kim

- who can dance circles around Murray on any day - Tuesday night, Kim got the cowboy boot right in her famous "bionic booty."

I swear if they had panned the studio, everyone would have been wearing WTF faces. Even Murray's partner looked shocked that they had survived.

Host

Tom Bergeron

had to acknowledge how wrong the evening had gone, noting that "there was a real shock in this room when I announced your name."

Grumpy head judge

Len Goodman

said the rapper “has been one of the best dancers” ever to appear on the show.

True, Kim came into the results show with the week’s second lowest score: 52 points out of 60. But no one danced worse than Murray this week, even if you count the queer yet oddly charming Chippendale shimmy he did in front of wife

Jewel

in the audience Monday night.

Bravo to Kim for smiling during her final words, when you just know she wanted to cry. (Or hit something.)

“This is one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever experienced in my life,” she said, rightfully boasting that she had expanded the show’s viewership, “because I brought people who never watched the show.”

If Murray doesn't get eliminated next week, I will find something better to do with my Monday and Tuesday nights.

There's no way he's better than

Let me add my voice to the chorus sure to come now: Lil' Kim, you were robbed!
