Sam, 25, dedicated a rumba dance to his estranged father, but the performance set to “I’m Not My Father’s Son” garnered a score of only 30 out of 40 from the judges, People magazine reported.I had never watched "Dancing with the Stars" before this season. I watched the premier while vacationing in Massachusetts, largely because my in-laws enjoy the program. But I stayed because I enjoyed watching Michael Sam's dance performances. But now Sam is gone and I'm back in Iowa. So I'm not sure if I will be watching much more of this season.
The gracious Sam,who got engaged to boyfriend Vito Cammisano in January, thanked dance partner Peta Murgatroyd and described the defeat as “bittersweet” in an interview with Access Hollywood. “I thought my last dance was my best dance,”Sam told the TV show. “And I would like to leave on my best dance instead of my horrible dance.”
