Jaleel White talks about the 'Dancing With The Stars' elimination - See video

The "Dancing With The Stars" "Dance Duel" segment claimed its last victim for the season on Tuesday and it came down to a Rumba against Jaleel White and Roshon Fegan. Warning: Spoilers Ahead!

Both Fegan and White competed in the dual before -- with Fegan out-dancing Gladys Knight last week and White defeating Gavin DeGraw in week five. Oddly enough, DeGraw was the musical guest for Tuesday night.

In the end, the judges unanimously chose Fegan's Rumba and White was sent home. The former child actor, who is best known for his role as Steve Urkel on "Family Matters," said he's taken an important lesson away from his experience in the competition.

"Patience with yourself, you know? Don't be anxious, you know? Let it come to you," he told OnTheRedCarpet.com's George Pennacchio after the elimination on May 1.

"In the beginning, it was petrifying," he added about learning his routines. "It kept me up at night. Quite frankly, it kept me doing figures at one o'clock in the morning when my daughter was asleep and I'm going to get some sleep now."

"Just trusting that God has a plan for you, just let it unfold, man, just let it unfold."

As for competing against Fegan in the duel, White said there is no ill will between the two.

"I'm such a fan of him as a person," White said.

Kym Johnson, his pro-dancer partner for the season, seemed to enjoy her time with White on the show. "I think we enjoyed each other's sense of humor, you know? We had a good laugh at rehearsals," she said. "We worked really hard but we also had a lot of fun."

Next week contestants will each dance two dances. One ballroom dance and one Latin dance. The twist for the week comes from the Latin dance, which will be performed as a trio. Each celebrity contestant will pick a pro-dancer no longer in the competition to dance in a trio with their partner for the Latin Dance.

There will also be a double elimination next week. So with two dances, the contestants have a lot on the line. Who will be the next to go home? Who will win it all? Vote in our polls below!
