Chuck Liddell, Anna Trebunskaya Kicked Off Dancing with the Stars

Hips don't lie, as Shakira says.

That proved to be the case for Joanna Krupa and Mya, who made it to safety within the first half hour of Tuesday evening's Dancing With the Stars.

Of course Michael Irvin and his practically stationary feet also got an easy pass into next week, so maybe this show really is about the fans at home.

Which is kind of obvious, right?

Anyway, the axe fell on Ultimate Fighting champ Chuck Liddell and partner Anna Trebunskaya, who were knocked out of the competition last night.

"I had fun. We had a good time, made a run at it," the sweetly soft-spoken fighter said after the elimination. "It's hard to do, I made a shot at it."

"I had so much fun working with you. You are a gentle giant. You are my bear and you are my hippo... That's my nice words to him," added Anna.

"And you made me so proud each single week you danced."

Two weeks removed from the top of the leaderboard, Aaron Carter joined Chuck in the bottom two. They scored only 18, just one point higher than Chuck and Anna. But they lived to fight another week, while Chuck will be watching from the couch.
