After falling short of winning the Superbowl earlier this year, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward was crowned the new Dancing With The Stars champ!

Going into the final results show last night, Hines was tied with Disney starlet Chelsea Kane for the top spot. He also faced competition from actress Kirstie Alley, who despite being a few points behind, was a fan favorite.

Not so surprisingly, coming in third place was Chelsea, 22, and her partner Mark Ballas. This left Hines, 35, and Kirstie, 60, to battle it out for the dreadful mirror ball trophy!

Ultimately, Hines was crowned the winner of DWTS season 12 and he made certain to thank his partner Kym Johnson. “I started this competition, I never thought I’d be in the finals, but I owe it all to Kym,” Hines said. “She’s an amazing teacher. I want to thank the judges for giving us their constructive criticism to help me get better each week. But also I want to thank all the fans.”

Runner-up Kirstie also thanked her partner/hotness Maksim Chmerkovskiy for helping her through the season. “It’s the most extraordinary adventure I’ve ever been on in my life,” said Kirstie, “and I want to thank…I love Maks.”

The three finalists all appeared on Good Morning America this morning. Hines also becomes the second NFL player in the history of DWTS to take the title. The only other player to accomplish the feat was Emmitt Smith in season three.

It was finals night on Dancing With The Stars as the three remaining celebs danced their hearts out!

The remaining finalists had to dance two dances last night, a regular dance and a freestyle routine. First up was Disney starlet Chelsea Kane, who danced a sultry samba with partner Mark Ballas for a score of 29. Kirstie Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy also performed a samba for a score of 27. “It could have been a little bit crisper, but it was a lovely job and deserving of being in this final,” said judge Len Goodman of Kirstie.

Dancing a quickstep was NFL player Hines Ward and partner Kym Johnson for an almost perfect score of 29. “It was a vast improvement, for me it’s not quite there yet,” critiqued Len.

It was time for the freestyle dances with Chelsea and Mark earning a perfect score of 30 for their “electrifying” hip-hop and Latin-inspired routine. It was then Kirstie’s turn and her freestyle with Maks started of slow before picking up speed, lifts included and all. Kirstie earned another score of 27. “You have become the poster child for life as it should be lived at 60 years old!” said judge Carrie Ann Inaba.

Hines was last but definitely not the least with his freestyle, and similar to Chelsea, he also earned a perfect score of 30! To sum things up, Hines and Chelsea are currently tied for first with a total score of 59 each, but don’t count Kirstie out just yet! She is a fan favorite after all and can still pull out a win.

Below are the full scores from last night -

Chelsea & Mark: 59 (29, 30)
Hines & Kym: 59 (29, 30)
Kirstie & Maksim: 54 (27, 27)

TELL US – WHO DO YOU WANT TO WIN THE MIRROR BALL TROPHY TONIGHT?

Monday night on Dancing With The Stars brought us the semi-finals competition. The four remaining contestants had to perform two new dances in addition to a winner-takes-all cha-cha for 15 bonus points.

Following a pretty scary neck injury days ago, pro dancer Kym Johnson and her partner Hines Ward managed to give two perfect performances.

During rehearsals late last week, Kym took a nasty fall and landed on her head. She was rushed to the hospital before doctors ultimately cleared her to practice with the help of a neck brace. This all makes Kym’s feat on Monday night all the more impressive as she and Hines earned a perfect score for their first dance of the night – the Argentine tango. “It was like something from the Kama Sutra,” said judge Len Goodman. “That is a tango!” The duo also earned another 30 for their salsa.

Leading the leaderboard last night, thanks to their bonus 15 points from the cha-cha dance contest, Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas also received a perfect score of 30 for their sexy rumba! Add in the 28 points they received for their earlier tango, and the pair scored a total of 73 points for the night. It’s safe to assume Chelsea and Mark will not be getting the boot tonight.

Falling to the bottom for the second week in a row was Ralph Macchio and pro partner Karina Smirnoff. It is however a comment by judge Bruno Tonioli that is making headlines today. See following their sexy salsa performance, Bruno made a racy remark in reference to Karina when he stated Ralph was “too rough” with his p–sy. He later clarified he was referring to Karina’s pussycat costume. This led to some boos from the audience.

Karina spoke to UsWeekly after the live show, stating she felt “dirty” following Bruno’s critique. “Today was just inappropriate and rude and uncalled for,” she said, adding that Bruno “wouldn’t make eye contact” with her after the incident.

Below are the full scores from last night -

Chelsea & Mark: 73 (28, 30, 15)
Hines & Kym: 60 (30, 30)
Kirstie & Maksim: 54 (27, 27)
Ralph & Karina: 48 (25, 23)

Days after announcing the celebrity-star pairings, ABC has now unveiled the official cast photos of Dancing With The Stars season 12.

Above is a photo of Playboy Playmate and E! reality star Kendra Wilkinson, who has been paired up with Louis van Amstel. According to numerous reports, Kendra, 25, is the favorite to win the show.

Meanwhile, 60-year-old actress Kirstie Alley is hoping to use the show as a weight loss vehicle. “I’ve lost 60 pounds, and I have 30 or 40 more to go,” the former Jenny Craig spokesperson told US Magazine this week. “And I think with this strenuous, rigorous dance schedule, I think it’s going to work. It’s exciting.”

That should no problem for Kirstie, who is paired with hotness/tough hard-ass teacher Maksim Chmerkovskiy . The 12th season of Dancing With The Stars will officially kick off on March 21.

Dancing With The Stars

The photos are here! ABC has released the official costume photos of the Dancing With The Stars season 11 cast.

There is however one cast member missing from the photos, as MTV reality star, The Situation, was still filming the 3rd season of the Jersey Shore when the photos were taken.

Above is this season’s Kate Gosselin Bristol Palin with partner Mark Ballas. Oddly enough, Bristol mentioned last week that she planned on wearing the most modest outfits and planned on being the most dressed contestant. Perhaps the above outfit is conservative in Alaska.

Bristol also appeared on the Tonight Show Friday, during which she denied the rumors of being a diva. “Literally, I was thinking about it today: the only thing I’ve ever asked for is a velcro mic pac so I don’t have to wear it on my belt loop,” she said. “That’s the only thing I’ve ever asked for.”

As for how she got on the show, Bristol mentioned she received a text message while working as an office manager at a dermatologist’s office in Alaska, and jumped at the opportunity. “Within the next week, we had signed the contract. Some people are like, ‘Do you really want to be in the spotlight?’ but I’m having fun with it,” said Bristol.

And when it comes to her dancing skills, the 19-year-old admits she is “so uncoordinated and I don’t have any rhythm.” Her partner Mark however reveals Bristol has been making good progress in her dancing.

The favorites to win at the moment? Brandy and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy according to Las Vegas odds.

The finale of Dancing With The Stars was last night and Mya came out shining, as she was only three points away from perfection.

Mya made it clear she intends to win that trophy. “I haven’t worked this hard for this long not to win this thing,” she said Monday night. “That trophy is mine.”

Coming in a close second to Mya was Donny Osmond who scored with 85 out of 90 points.  He and professional partner Kym Johnson earned a perfect score of 30 for their Broadway-inspired freestyle routine, which head judge Len Goodman called “an absolute show-stopper.”

Kelly Osbourne kept smiling despite landing in third place with 76 points, confessing, “I never thought we’d get this far.”

Each star will perform again on Tuesday’s episode, when a new “Dancing” champion will be crowned.
