LOS ANGELES - Toni Braxton will no longer break it down on "Dancing with the Stars."

The singer and her professional partner, Alec Mazo, were eliminated Tuesday from ABC's popular dancing competition. The pair received a score of 22 out of 30 from the show's judges during Monday's performance after a respectable West Coast swing routine. The "Unbreak My Heart" crooner was booted after that score was combined with viewer votes.

"My goal was reached," said Braxton, who has coronary microvascular angina, after she was dismissed. "I wanted to do better. I wanted to breathe better. And I was definitely breathing better. I've come a long way from Week One to Week Now."

Celebrities remaining in the competition include TV personality Brooke Burke; singer Lance Bass; former NFL star Warren Sapp; Olympic gold medalist Maurice Greene; actor Cody Linley; and actresses Cloris Leachman and Susan Lucci. Chef Rocco DiSpirito, reality TV star Kim Kardashian, actor Ted McGinley and comedian Jeffrey Ross were previously eliminated.

Julianne Hough is feeling fine after being hospitalized with stomach trouble following her "Dancing With the Stars" performance.

"With stomach problems, you never know what's going on," Hough wrote in a FanCast posting. "It could've been appendicitis. It turned out just to be a bad stomach. As my mom said, better safe than sorry."

The 20-year-old professional dancer, who's partnered with "Hannah Montana" actor Cody Linley on the popular ABC dancing competition, went to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center following the live results show Tuesday.

Hough said she hadn't been feeling well all day and "curled up in a ball" backstage after the show.

"I'd never been in an emergency room before," she wrote. "I was grateful I wasn't there for anything more serious than a bad stomach ache."
