One down, eleven to go.

NBA baller Ron Artest, aka Metta World Peace, was the first contestant voted off "Dancing with the Stars" Tuesday night, thanks to a cha-cha which the judges called "lacking in cha-cha content".

Artest took it all in stride, calling for a round of applause for partner Peta Murgatroyd, saying "Peta was great" before taking the floor for one last dance.
