LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Dancing with the Stars results tonight put Karina Smirnoff and Ralph Macchio the most likely contestants to be eliminated. But were they? Tonight’s Dancing with the Stars results for May 10, 2011 started with Macchio holding the lowest overall score, and prompting fans and news to predict his elimination tonight. But were they right? For weeks, Romeo and Macchio have been in trouble of elimination; but on Monday, Romeo soared in scoring while Macchio faltered. Chelsea Kane, Kirstie Alley, and Hines Ward appeared on Monday to be commanding on their routines, but Romeo and Macchio weren’t impressive.
On Monday, Kirstie Alley’s performance proved she now has a chance to win this season. Len remarked “It was hot. Bruno loved Alley’s routine, remarking “A hint of aggression, just the right amount of passion”. Carrie Ann added “I think you just topped your cha-cha.” Fans and news critics agreed.
Kirstie’s weight loss also dominated judges’ reviews last night. Bruno said “You’re body’s shrinking, your talent is huge”. “I have 30 or 40 more pounds to lose,” Alley told Us Weekly News in March. “I think with this strenuous, rigorous dance schedule, I think it’s going to work.”
With a twenty-eight, Kirstie was even better than Hines Ward who scored a twenty-six. Len told Hines “This is a real tough dance and you’ve done a fantastic job.” Bruno added “It was a bit like a penguin.” And Carrie Ann added “You totally relaxed into the moment.”
After Monday’s performances, Hines Ward’s lead shrank, now at a combined score of fifty-four compared to fifty-three held by Kane and Alley. On tonight’s results show, good news was delivered early on Kirstie and Hines, advancing to the next round. Later, Chelsea and Mark got good news, and then Ralph and Karina got the same.
But in the end, Romeo and Chelsie were eliminated.
