Ward, Kane tied front-runners for ‘Dancing’ crown
Tuesday, May 24, 2011
LOS ANGELES (AP) — For “Dancing With the Stars” finalists Kirstie Alley, Chelsea Kane and Hines Ward, it all comes down to one last dance.
Each will perform a final dance during Tuesday’s season finale before the mirrorball trophy is awarded.
Football star Ward and actress Kane are tied with 59 points out of 60. Each performed flawless freestyle routines Monday and fell short of perfect by a point on their judges’ choice dances.
Alley comes into the finale with 54 points, but the actress has already won in another way: The costume she wore on the season opener of the ABC show had to be taken in 38 inches for her to wear it again Tuesday, when a new “Dancing” champ is crowned.
Judges’ scores are combined with viewer votes to determine the winner.
ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Co.
