Kirstie Alley and her pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy went big and high on tonight’s Dancing With The Stars. Kristie Alley danced in the finals tonight, against fellow star dancers Chelsea Kane (with pro Mark Ballas) and Hines Ward (with pro Kym Johnson).

Unfortantly, the gymnastic freestyle dance may have been better left at home in favor of something more elegant.

The judges, while providing enthusiastic praise for Kirstie Alley, gave her scores of 9, 9, 9 on her dancing, for a total of 27 for the freestyle dance. Kirstie Alley received the same score on the Samba dance she did earlier in the evening.

The other couples scores: Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas, 29  for their Samba, and 30 for their freestyle. Hines Ward and Kym Johnson received 29 for their quickstep, and 30 for their freestyle.

This leaves Kirstie Alley in a precarious position going into tomorrow’s final dance before the stars are narrowed down into the final two. Tonight’s scores will totaled with the scores of the final dance and viewer’s votes to determine which two couples will end up in the final dance off for the Mirror Ball trophy.

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba told Kirstie Alley after her freestyle You are the new poster child for life as it should be lived at 60 years old! Free, loving, poignant, crazy, wacky, unpredictable, and all of the above and then some.”
