|Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas look like the team to beat.|
With only one more dance to perform for the judges in their quest for the Mirror Ball Trophy on Tuesday on Dancing With The Stars, each couple had to dance a prepared dance in one of the traditional styles and then they each performed a freestyle dance.
Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas took the floor first, and danced a stunning Samba that earned them 29 points.
Also dancing a Samba, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy earned consecutive 9's from the trio of judges for a total of 27.
Kym Johnson practiced in a neck brace all week after her near disastrous slip with Hines Ward's full weight landing on her and bending her neck. Their Quick Step impressed the judges and they were awarded two 10's and a 9 for a total of 29.
Next was the freestyle competition. Lifts were required to make the judges take notice and all three teams let it all out. All the pressure fell on Kirstie Alley as both Hines Ward and Chelsea Kane danced to perfect 30's. Alley had another 27, for a total of 54.
Going into the final dance on Tuesday's show, Chelsea Kane and Hines Ward were tied with 59 points. Kirstie Alley was five points behind.
Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas look like the team to beat. Their dancing has been exceptionally crisp and athletic. Although, Hines Ward has shown some really championship moves. It will be thrilling to see how it all winds up.
This is it for Dancing With The Stars 2011. The Week 10 Finals end with a tie at the top of the leader board. Fan voting accounts for half of the judges scores. So you have to vote for your favorites. Voting will be open until 11 am ET on Tuesday.
