'Dancing With the Stars:' Who Went Home in Week 8?

by Sharon Knolle, posted Nov 10th 2010 1:33AM


"This is shaping up to be an interesting semi-final," Tom Bergeron said of the four couples headed to the next phase of the competition.

Of the unlucky star going home Tuesday night, Bergeron noted that the standing ovation from the in-studio audience for the exiting duo was "well-deserved."

Monday night's feud between Carrie Ann Inaba and Maks Chmerkovskiy continued, with Chmerkovskiy sniping "let's do our jobs, I'm trying to do mine" and Inaba telling the pro to "let it go."

Did Chmerkovskiy's temper doom him and partner Brandy? Was this the week bottom of the leaderboard regular Bristol Palin's luck ran out?

Keep reading to see who's done dancing and who'll continue on to the semi-finals.

Although his "instant" dance brought out a whole new sexy side of Kurt Warner, the NFL star's competitive dancing days came to an end Tuesday night.

Before his elimination, Warner shrugged off the judges' scoring. "I know on this show I'm not going to be the best dancer, so my goal is to entertain the audience and to entertain those people at home, so it feels good when you have the crowd behind you."

Bruno Tonioli called Warner "a real gentleman" and a "true sportsman."

On being booted, Warner said, "I learned a long time ago that life isn't always about winning and losing competitions. It's about relationships, it's about impacting people. I thank everybody at 'Dancing With the Stars' because they gave me an opportunity to impact people and build relationships and that's really what it's all about."

He thanked his wife, his "seven wonderful kids at home" and his "wonderful" partner, Anna Trebunskaya.

Maks and Brandy were the other couple in jeopardy, although they tied with Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough at the top of the leaderboard this week. At the bottom, as usual, was Bristol Palin, whose fans keep putting her through to the next round.

Musicians John Legend and Taio Cruz performed and Lacey Schwimmer and Kyle Massey reprised their instant jive at the judges' request.

Should Kurt Warner have been sent home this week?
Yes, he should be glad he made it this far.20711 (27.2%)
No, he was getting better every week.55384 (72.8%)

I think it is a disgrace that Bristol Palin is still on this show. Brandy and Max were excellent compare to her.It just goes to show you what her mother can do, with her party. IT a shame that the politians and or her tea party is interfering with dancing with the stars. If she can do this,God forbit,if she gets elected president. Well all I can say is that I'm done " with dancing with the stars."

Gee. This is all so stupid, isn't it? Maks was really very rude to Carrie Ann. No matter how one feels, the judges have to be respected. Maks was way out of line, and I don't think he's owed an apology. Just my two cents.

The person who really needs to go is Brook. She is so egomaniacal. She was really rude to Margaret Cho, and she doesn't have the boobs for low bust lines or the legs for short dresses. Again, my two cents.

Aren't we all silly for part of our life hinging on this program or any other? I'm an idiot for giving two hoots about this.

Sorry all - I just needed to vent somewhere. I don't think I'll watch any more reality shows. They take precedence over things that should matter more.

DWS has lost me also. I blame the judges for kissing up and not putting her scores lower once they saw what was happening way back.
Skill vs Popularity for years but usually it balanced out. Those who stayed were at least entertaining and had personality. Checks & Balances are needed.

My time was wasted this season. Even if I'm just relaxing while watching.

OMG!! Get a grip!! This isn't the OLYMPICS you vicious animals! As for Carrie Ann, she was a lamb compared to Bruno and his attack of Michael Bolton. His comments were what I called totally unnecessary, demeaning, and unproductive! If one is to criticize, make it constructive! Correct me if I am wrong, isn't Len the one who always complained of wasted time on the dance floor?? As a former dancer...I find it a valid point! Finally, I DO NOT think her comments hurt Maks' ego...could anything do that?? Perhaps what hurt Brandy....were Maks' comments..his attitude..sometimes it's just hard to separate the professional from the contestant. So let's not hang Carrie Ann...she was doing her job as was Len, however, in a much more professional way than Bruno. (Hey, Bruno, let's hear a few songs from you and we'll have Michael critique your performance).

Now, on to Ms. Palin, again, your venom, is surprising only in its intensity. Are there certain rules specifying who goes on the show??? It seems pretty open to me...There have been several people whom I haven't seen as "STARS", but they were there. The rules for judges' votes and audience votes have been there since the show's inception...YES??? Would it be fair to change them now??? In the future it could be done, but now...NO!! Finally, let's discuss, the personal attacks, who has the perfect body?? Her family is watching her child. And what does her mother have to do with it?? She and Kyle improved greatly; they have been so fun to watch. AGAIN, THIS IS NOT THE OLYMPICS (EVEN IF IT WERE, DO YOU REMEMBER SOME OF THE UNFAIR JUDGING IN THOSE SKATING CONTESTS??) SO EASE UP...IT'S ENTERTAINMENT..NO ONE IS GETTING SHOT OR DISMEMBERED...ENJOY...OR CHANGE THE CHANNEL.

PS FYI The best dancer, truly, is Jennifer Grey, but who cares...I've just had so much fun watching!

I am shocked that Palin is still there. She clearly has no rhythm and is lacking in dancing ability. Just proves DWTS has become "political"!!!!!!!

The program is a farse. Bristol should have been eliminated weeks ago. It shows that viewers have been able to flood the network with votes for her family rather than for her skil. Perhaps the judges should make the final decision. The network should be ashamed for allowing this to happen.

This show get worest every season. Frist why BP even on the show, she not a star. She can't dance and it not fair for the people who do have talent. I said I wasn't going to watch this show after last season and I gave it another try, but I'm done. It not about talent it about popularity. Which is really a shame. I real disappointed in channel 8 even allowing this to take place.

I am totally disgusted with the Politicizing on Dancing. This is supposed to be a Dancing Competition and should not be a popularity contest and certainly be politicized. Sarah Palin was given a clip to appeal in closeup for support of Bristol who was always at the bottom of the scoreboard. For Bristol to have gotten this far is such a farce! I have lost faith in the fairness of this so called Dancing competion.

What a shocker! BP should have been gone a long, long, time ago. People wake up! This is not politics, it's a show in which the "best" dancer wins the mirror ball. I'm think the show keeps BP on to attract viewers (who obviously, every week, are very displeased BP hasn't gone home)
