It's been a Dancing with the Stars season to remember.

The injuries. The drama. The personal stories that moved us. The moves on the floor that thrilled us. A cast of stars so engaging and evenly matched that the field was as competitive as it was entertaining from the start.

But there could be only one Season 12 champion.

Awaiting the Results

Somewhat surprisingly, given that she was just one point from perfection Monday and seemed like the dark horse to win, Chelsea Kane finished in third place.

That left Kirstie Alley, who ended up with five points less than the other finalists, but has been a fan favorite all season, up against Hines Ward for the crown.

Talk about anyone's game. Anyone willing to wager on this?

And the Season 12 Dancing With the Stars winner was ...

In terms of making the most out of one's ability, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmkerovskiy are as stellar as Dancing With the Stars pairs come.

Ditto Hines Ward and Kym Johnson. But in terms of pure talent and grace under fire, Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas may have the slight edge.

After her samba and freestyle on Monday's DWTS finals, the Disney star continued her near-perfect streak and looks like the woman to beat.

It will likely come down to voter turnout between Chelsea and Hines, both of whom posted total scores of 59 out of a possible 60 last night.

Fresh and edgy, while cuter and sexier than the other couples, Mark and Chelsea made their case in a big way. Watch their routines below:

All three finalists proved themselves deserving of the Mirror Ball last night.

There can be only one champion of Dancing With the Stars, though, and more than likely, it will come down to one of two couples on this evening's results show.

Monday night's dueling DWTS finale performances involved two categories - a first round of judges' choice and a second round of freestyle dance.

Chelsea Kane aced both with the kind of fierce determination and focus necessary to execute partner Mark Ballas' unconventional choreography.

Kane and Ballas

Her first dance, a samba, had Bruno deeming her an "an ultra sexy bombshell" and commending the "rhythm flowing through your body like I've never seen before."

Chelsea and Mark's second dance, a freestyle Tron-esque number, earned them a 30 to go with the 29 in their salsa, posting a number near impossible to best.

Hines Ward and Kym Johnson felt up to the task, however.

The NFL star donned a top hat for this week's judges' choice in a peppy quick step that ended with a burst of flair and champaigne at the judges' table.

"You make it like you're running for a touchdown and the whole crowd is cheering for you and following you around the ballroom," Carrie Ann said.

Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas all but assured their place in next week's finale by taking a Winner Take All dance in Monday's Dancing With the Stars semis.

We can debate whether or not this new scoring wrinkle is fair, but what's not up for debate is how far the Disney Channel star has come in recent weeks.

Capturing the Winner Take All Cha-Cha and its 15 extra points will help her cause, but she also scored a combined 58 in the other two routines last night.

Speaking on Kane's behalf in a pre-recorded segment, friend Joe Jonas said of Chelsea, “she’s doing such a great job. I think this is just the beginning.”

She'll be tough to beat next week in any case. Watch her 15-point Cha-Cha win over Hines Ward below and her performances with Mark after the jump ...

Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas may not have started off slowly this season on Dancing With the Stars, but they were definitely under the radar.

After dancing to the top of the scoreboard last night, they won't have that problem the rest of the season, however long their run might last.

Hopefully Pia Toscano took notes, because Chelsea gave Mark a bit of a dressing down at the onset, and he became a better partner for it.

With only five couples remaining, and each enjoying a large degree of fan support, it's anyone's game. But Chelsea and Mark have proved they belong.

Watch the prohibitive favorites showcase their skills below ...

It won't guarantee their safety in a reality show voted on by millions of fans, but Ralph Macchio, Hines Ward and Chelsea Kane proved they were a cut above the rest of the competition last night on Dancing With the Stars.

The Karate Kid and Karina Smirnoff quickstepped to the top spot after their fall (literal and otherwise) last week, joining Hines and Kym Johnson with 66 each.

Chelsea Kane, a.k.a. the Disney dark horse, was right behind them with 64. She and Mark Ballas have been low fliers this season, but have a real shot to win.

Don't believe us? Watch her after the jump. First, here's Ralph and Karina:

Monday was "guilty pleasure night" on Dancing With the Stars, an event that kicked off with Hanson rocking out to its famous '90s hit "Mmmbop."

That pretty much set the tone for the night.

Karina Smirnoff, whose Playboy cover could be considered a guilty pleasure in itself, took a spill that sent Ralph Macchio tumbling from the top:

Nevertheless, they rebounded enough to score 24 points, which kept them out of last, and it's hard to see these favorites leading us tonight.

Meanwhile, Chelsea Kane and Romeo proved they're contenders and blew up THG's rankings, each earning a coveted 10 and a pair of 9s to boot.

Romeo tried to live up to his name with Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On," ending a waltz by passionately kissing partner Chelsie Hightower:

Lauren Conrad's ex-boyfriend, Stephen Colletti, is dating Chelsea Kane, the Disney and Dancing with the Stars cutie, according to new reports.

"We were set up on a blind date by my manager," Kane says.

It turns out the dancer has been a fan of Colletti, who now stars on One Tree Hill, since his days with LC on MTV's reality hit Laguna Beach.

"She tore his photo out of a magazine to show friends!" says a friend, presumably meaning back then, and not like last week. Cute stuff!

In other DWTS news, Kendra Wilkinson has been feeling so degraded and sad lately, while Kirstie Alley is allegedly a control freak. Good to know, Us!

All three ladies are still in the running in this wide open season. Hines Ward, Ralph Macchio, Chris Jericho and Romeo round out the remaining field.

Who do you think win Dancing With the Stars?

A week ago, Kirstie Alley fell to the floor, only to make a full recovery on Dancing With the Stars. Unfortunately, she suffered another mishap last night.

This time, it was a footwear malfunction. Kirstie and Maksim Chmerkovskiy had to fight through more adversity as Alley's left shoe fell off in mid-waltz.

Just like the previous week, they recovered well enough to earn a respectable score – 22 out of 30 – plus sympathy and respect from fans and judges.

"You didn't miss a beat," said Carrie Ann Inaba. Bruno Tonioli agreed, while Len Goodman was less impressed, pointing out the need for improvement.

Still, we'd be surprised if Kirstie and Maks were in jeopardy after a second straight week of bouncing back strongly from a somewhat freakish setback.

Another gal who should be safe? Disney starlet Chelsea Kane, whose Viennese waltz with Mark Ballas earned them the top score of the night at 26.

Watch it, and check out the full scoreboard, after the jump ...
