Kirstie Alley on Dancing With the Stars: Oozing!

by at . Comments

"We have the very young Chelsea. We have a very athletic Hines ... Kirstie is the exact opposite." - Maksim Chmerkovskiy on his Dancing With the Stars partner.

Maks has never been one to mince words, but rest assured, he didn't utter the above quote as a slight to Kirstie Alley, but to credit her for beating the odds.

At 60 and not exactly rail thin, she was the clear underdog heading into the Dancing With the Stars finals. But Maks said she belongs there and proved it.

Carrie Ann Inaba felt she "oozed" in her samba, and meant that as a compliment. It was rather sultry, earning her a 27 despite some technical hangups.

Later, in her freestyle, she defied the odds and did anything but play it safe with a daring, split-legged lift. Then the energy increased - with a cartwheel.

Will it be enough to vault her over Chelsea Kane and Hines Ward to claim the Mirror Ball tonight? She scored a 54 to their 59s. But you never know.

Watch her freestyle performance after the jump ...

Who will win the Dancing With the Stars title?

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
