'DWTS' Narrows the Field

Kurt Warner and partner Anna Trebunskaya got the dance boot on "Dancing with the Stars" -- but the Super Bowl champ still thrilled the crowds.

Even as Warner was saying goodbye, the studio audience and Warner's fellow contestants cheered "M-V-P! M-V-P!"

After Warner and Trebunskava's waltz and chacha Monday, the judges gave mostly praises. "I've never seen you dance with so much charisma," judge Carrie Ann Inaba said -- but the couple only collected 24 points out of 30 for each dance. Watch the performance!

Warner showed his true gentlemanly attitude, thanking his partner, the show, the fans, his wife and their seven children. "I learned a long time ago that life isn't always about winning and losing competitions, but it's about relationships, it's about impacting people," he said. "And so I thank everybody at 'Dancing With the Stars' because it gave me an opportunity to impact people and build relationships, and that's really what it's all about."

Jennifer Grey, Kyle Massey, Brandy and Bristol Palin.will all go on to compete in next week's semifinals.
