There were no tears, only smiles for Patti LaBelle after she was eliminated from week six of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars competition.

On Monday night following her exit, the 70-year-old legendary singer said she was thrilled with the opportunity to compete on the dancing competition and thanked her fans for supporting her this far.

OK!: What have you taken away from your experience on Dancing With The Stars?

LaBelle: “This has been a life lesson for me. I’ve spent eight wonderful weeks here and I am so excited to be going home! I had to leave or Rob [Herjavec], it was down to two couples, so if he would have left then I would be here one more week, but I’m not. I am happy to be walking away from the competition with a smile on my face.”
