Did David Arquette Get Booted from 'Dancing with the Stars'?

Despite receiving high marks from the judges, the quirky actor landed in the bottom three -- but was he saved in the end?

For the past two weeks, the couple to leave the Dancing with the Stars ballroom was among the judges' favorites. So when David Arquette and Kym Johnson, who earned the week's second-highest score, landed in the bottom three, fans worried that history might repeat itself.

But for once, the leader board results did matter. Arquette and Johnson were sent to safety, leaving Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya to await the final judgment. In the end, Kressley and Trebunskaya, who had received the week's lowest score, were booted from the ballroom, giving soccer champ Solo and her hottie pro another chance at the Mirrorball trophy.

"Thank you to everybody at 'Dancing with the Stars,'" Kressley said after the crowd gave a resounding "Nooooo" when his name was called. "This has been pure joy to me. ... I hope I could make everyone laugh and smile. It was great being here."

The night's live entertainment included a performance by Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson, who sang two songs, starting with "Mr. Know It All" from her upcoming album Stronger. While she belted out the new single, Johnson and Tristan MacManus were highlighted in a sultry dance.

"They were hot," the first American Idol champion said. "It was distracting. If I could dance that way I would be on the show, but I can't."
 
When host Tom Bergeron said the show would be happy to have her, Clarkson responded that it would be a "comedy" not a competition if she were on -- but perhaps the producers have found a willing contestant for an upcoming season! 
 
So what do you think? Was the right couple booted from the ballroom?
 
Watch Carson and Anna's final dance!
