Dancing with the Stars LIVE – Martin Kove ELIMINATED in first cut as Kenya Moore reflects on marriage with ex Marc Daly

DANCING with the Stars' first elimination of the 2021 Season took place on Monday night and ended with Martin Kove being sent home.

Cobra Kai's Martin Kove and his dance partner Britt Stewart were voted off the show after dancing the Cha Cha to "Twist and Shout."

However, the judges weren't impressed and the pair's total score for this week's performance was 15, just two points higher than last week.

Martin told the judges at the close of the episode: "I’m good, I’m good."

Meanwhile, Kenya Moore — who danced to the song “Hot Stuff” with her dance partner Brandon Armstrong — reflected on her marriage with her ex Marc Daly.

Approximately one week ago, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya reportedly filed a motion to keep her divorce case sealed, according to court docs obtained by Radar.

And Cody Rigsby and his partner Cheryl Burke, who tested positive for Covid, appeared virtually on the show and were allowed to have their rehearsal video count towards the competition.

Hours before the show aired, Burke, who is paired with Peleton's Rigsby for DWTS's 30th season, took to her Instagram to reveal the news.
