WATCH: Michael Sam Performs Gay-Themed Rumba on DWTS


Sadly, it was the last dance for the out football player.

NFL free agent and former St. Louis Rams draft pick Michael Sam was eliminated on the fourth week of Dancing With the Stars' latest season, but he went out with a bang.

Sam and dancing partner Peta did a rumba to "Not My Father's Son," a ballad from the Tony-winning musical Kinky Boots, about a son dealing with his father's homophobia. It's a subject that hits close to home for Sam.

"I haven't talked to my father since February 2014," Sam told Access Hollywood. "Time will heal all wounds, and I know eventually I probably can forgive my father and speak to him. ... I know that deep down he loves me. I just need to be patient."

Watch Sam's performance below as well as a post-elimination interview:
