He partners with last season’s Troupe member PETA MURGATROYD, who makes her “Dancing with the Stars” debut as a professional partner this season.

LOS ANGELES – “Dancing with the Stars” viewers didn’t give Metta World Peace a chance.

The basketball star formerly known as Ron Artest was the first celebrity ejected Tuesday from the 13th edition of “Dancing with the Stars.” The show’s judges gave World Peace the lowest score on Monday’s premiere: 14 out of a possible 30.

World Peace was sent packing after viewer votes were combined with the judges’ scores.

Head judge Len Goodman said the outgoing Los Angeles Lakers forward’s footwork was “atrocious” and his routine was “all sizzle and no sausage.” AP
