(Newser) – No magic lamp could save Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban from losing his small-screen wingtips last night, as the billionaire was bumped from “Dancing with the Stars.” Cuban, who’s lost 30 pounds and one goatee since his stint began, entertained with a samba inspired by “I Dream of Jeannie,” but critics pounced on his lack of technique, E! reports.

The fifth celeb to go, Cuban was joined in the bottom two by Jane Seymour, who got plenty of compliments on her body but not so many on her rug-cutting. Spice Girl Melanie Brown finished first, beating a cold to dance to one of her old group's songs.
