Celebrity chef and TV personality Nadia Lim was eliminated on Monday's episode of Dancing With The Stars NZ.
The "extremely strong semi-final" saw the end of Lim's jiving journey, despite her and Aaron Gilmore's foxtrot scoring a fair 24 out of 30 from the judges.
Judge Julz Tocker praising Lim on her performance: "I think tonight you got out of your head and into your body".
Camilla Sacre-Dallerup was complimentary of the fox-trot despite a tense exchange between her and Lim's partner Aaron Gilmore on Sunday's episode.
"I thought it was a really pretty number," she told Lim.
Lim and Gilmore were in the bottom two with William Waiirua and his partner, Amelia McGregor.
Dancing With The Stars NZ airs live at 7pm Sundays and 7:30pm Mondays on Three. Previous episodes can be viewed on ThreeNow.
