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.

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 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.

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 ...
