Kurt Warner on Dancing with the Stars
Looking ruggedly handsome in a sparkly military olive green shirt, Kurt Warner danced the jive with partner Anna Trebunskaya to “Danger Zone” from the movie “Top Gun.” He made a comment in rehearsal about “one old goat,” meaning Len, who had nothing but criticism for Warner’s performance last week.

After his fun romp through the jive, Carrie Ann Inaba told Warner he reminded her of everyone’s favorite uncle at a wedding, complimenting Warner on his natural musicality and saying “I just loved it” of his performance.

Each judge gave Warner a 7 for a score of 21.
Bristol Palin – Dancing with the Stars
Before they took the dance floor this week, Bristol Palin took partner Mark Ballas home to Alaska to meet her mother Sarah Palin saying Palin is a big fan of the show. Sarah Palin thanked Ballas for taking care of her girl and asked how she did the shimmy.
Bristol commented that she was very relieved to have her first performance out of the way. Ballas pointed out that after the Alaska trip, Bristol needed to “buckle down and learn the quick step.
Wearing a sweet lilac gown and purple gown, layered and a bit frothy in the skirt, Bristol Palin danced the quick step to “You Can’t Hurry Love” with Mark Ballas.
