The show must go on.  Hines Ward's partner Kym Johnson was taken to the hospital last week after getting hurt in Dancing With The Stars rehearsals.  They were trying new tricks for the semi-finals, when Hines tripped and landed on Kym's neck, while flipping her over.  It's hard to watch and she's lucky she wasn't permanently injured.  The fall is at 1:34 into the video.  But make sure to watch their comeback with a perfect and emotional argentine tango.

If that wasn't enough, Hines returns for a hip shaking salsa that shows his fun side.  Before he dances, several friends, co-workers and family explain where Hines came from and what he's made of himself.  I've loved Hines, the football player for years.  I've loved watching him learn to dance this season on Dancing With the Stars, and have cheered for him since day one.  Now I love Hines the man.

Kirstie Alleyproved she's a dancer and a fighter.  After arguing all week with her partner Maks, she managed to dance a beautiful waltz and an angry paso dobleChelsea Kane stumbled with her first dance but came back with a perfect 30 for her sexy rumbaRalph Macchio struggled all night.  His tango started great but fell flat.  His wild salsa not only got low scores, but low blows from judge Bruno.

After Hines, Kirstie, Chelsea and Ralph performed two dances, they had to take on the instant cha cha.  For the first time, the couples squared off until one winner was left, in an all or nothing dance.  Chelsea won the title and received 15 extra points, pushing her above Hines for first place.  And she may need those points.  I predict it'll come down to her and Ralph tonight, when one person is sent home, one week before the finals.  She just doesn't have the fan the base the other 3 have.  But with Ralph's poor performance he may go.  Tune into ABC tonight at 8 for the best freestyle dances in Dancing With The Stars history, including Nick Lachey's "Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy."  One more will be sent home at 9 and I doubt it will be either Kirstie or Hines.
