Dancing With The Stars

Finalists (Minus Ralph, Sob!) Discuss Plans for DWTS Season 12 Finale Freestyles

It’s sad enough to lose Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff right before the Dancing With the Stars Season 12 Finale, but it adds salt in the wound to hear what they would’ve done for their Freestyle if they made it.

During Tuesday’s Dancing with the Stars Live: Freestyle Special — which aired right before the Results Show — DWTS alums Apolo Anton Ohno, Donny Osmond, and Warren Sapp talked about their season’s Freestyles and Drew Lachey & Cheryl Burke performed their famous Freestyle to "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)."

After that, the final four Season 12 Semifinalists revealed their plans for their own Week 10 make-or-break Freestyles…if they made the cut.

Hines Ward & Kym Johnson — Kym said they will be dancing to a Jackson 5 song. After her injury, Kym will stay a bit on the safe side in terms of lifts and tricks. Hines said he’s played football his whole life and he’s missed the halftime specials. So he wants to be the band. “I am gonna be the half-time show.”

Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas — Chelsea said they are usually scolded for doing routines that are “out of the box,” but now that there is no box this is their time to be clean and traditional. "Just kidding!" Phew, Chelsea was just messing with us. Why be clean and traditional when there is NO BOX? They are going to take full advantage of it.

Kirstie Alley & Maksim Chmerkovskiy — Kirstie said they are planning a lot of aerials and showing people you can be perfect, however you are. The song has a real good title to it, Kirstie said, but they can’t say it on TV. (Wild guess: Pink’s "F-ckin’ Perfect")

Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff — Karina said they were planning to do a call-back to the kind of Old Hollywood routine they did in their Week 1 Foxtrot. Sort of like what Donny Osmond did in the Freestyle to win Season 9. They wanted to dance to a song from the movie “The Band Wagon.” Sob! Sorry, Ralph!

Don’t forget, Monday’s Week 10 Finale Performance Show is one hour, from 8 to 9 PM. But you should stick around for The Bachelorette right afterward.
