NEW YORK (AP) - Sean Avery is hinting that he was forced off, not voted off "Dancing With the Stars." Avery told "Good Morning America that he and the producer clashed over his get-to-know-you package that was aired on the first night. He says it was a "very tacky attempt" to paint him as "the bad boy" of the show and he told one of the producers how he felt about it. Avery says "if you have a disagreement with the producers then generally that seals your fate quite early." Avery was sent home as part of a surprise double elimination in the second episode. ABC hasn't commented yet.

LEBANON, Tenn. (AP) - It's a trap that who listens to Bob Dylan music can fall into: trying to mimic the phrasing and style of the legendary singer. So, when Charlie Daniels set out to do an album featuring covers of 10 Dylan songs, he had one request of his producer: don't let him start trying to "do" Dylan. He says while Dylan has had a big effect on his music, he wanted his takes on those songs to sound like him, not like someone pretending to be Dylan. Daniels says Dylan has been an influence and mentor - he played as a studio musician on Dylan's landmark album "Nashville Skyline" in 1969. He released his own album the following year.
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Billy Dee Williams is out on "Dancing With the Stars." But he wasn't voted off. Williams says he has chronic back problems and had to withdraw for medical reasons. He got the lowest judges' scores this season, but his fan base kept in the competition. We don't know who would have been voted off last night had Williams not pulled out. Meanwhile, the first 10s from the judges have been awarded on "Dancing With the Stars" this season. Olympic skater Meryl Davis got three 10s, including one from guest judge Robin Roberts. Only head judge Len Goodman kept her from getting a perfect score. Davis leads, with a large group just behind her. James Maslow, Danica McKellar, Amy Purdy, and Charlie White all tied with 36s from the judges. It was an emotional night, with the dancers having to put their most memorable year in motion. For Purdy it was when her legs were amputated and she needed a kidney transplant from her father. Robin Roberts from "Good Morning America" was a guest judge. She's survived breast cancer and a rare blood disorder. Roberts says Purdy is an inspiration to anyone facing a challenge. Drew Carey was this week's low scorer on the judges' leaderboard.
