So was it the politician’s kid who was sent packing on Tuesday night’s Dancing With the Stars elimination?
Nope. Despite landing in the bottom once again, Bristol Palin survived another week. Instead, it was former quarterback Kurt Warner who was given the boot on Tuesday night.
Monday night’s performance presented the dancers with a difficult challenge: They didn’t know what music they were dancing to until right before they performed. The couples were scored on each of their two performances, and front-runner Jennifer Grey danced her way back to the top of the leader board, earning perfect 10s for one of her dances.
Warner was gracious in his goodbye.
“I learned a long time ago that life isn’t about winning and losing competitions,” Warner said after he learned he’d be heading home. “It’s about relationships and impacting people. And so I thank everybody at ’Dancing With the Stars,’ because it gave me an opportunity to impact people and build relationships. So that’s really what it’s all about.”
He also thanked his dance partner, Anna Trebunskaya, his fans (who shouted “MVP!” after it was determined he’d be going home), his wife and his seven kids at home.
And next week, Palin will still be competing against Disney star Kyle Massey, Jennifer Grey and Brandy.
Performers on Tuesday night’s show included Taio Cruz, who sang his single “Dynamite.” Pro dancers Tony Dovolani, Chelsie Hightower, Brandy’s partner Maks Chmerkovskiy and Cheryl Burke also danced as R&B singer John Legend and the Roots performed “Wake Up.”
