Actor and retired professional wrestler Mr. T left "Dancing With the Stars" judges in tears with his testimony and a stunning dance routine to "Amazing Grace" before exiting the show Monday night.
During his segment on the dance competition series, Mr. T discussed his cancer battle in 1995. He testified that he had to solely rely on his faith in God and he took that message to the ballroom.
"Back in the day, I had money, cars. I had achieved what I wanted to achieve and then everything really stopped," Mr. T said in a video featured before his performance. "I called on God. I said, 'God, give me strength to do your will.' That's when it really hit me: What's really real? My faith in God, that was real, because only God could save me."
The 64 year old and his professional dance partner, Kym Johnson-Herjavec, chose to perform the waltz to "Amazing Grace" in remembrance of his "most memorable year week." The episode highlighted different moments in all of the celebrity dancers' lives that was most important to them and they each danced to a song that represents those major life events.
Mr. T spoke openly about his cancer struggle, his days in chemotherapy and the challenge it was for him. Both Mr. T and Johnson-Herjavec were shown crying while preparing for the waltz.
