Kirstie Alley Goes Aerial With Freestyle Stunts on 'Dancing With the Stars' (VIDEO)

Kirstie Alley & Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 'Dancing with the Stars'When it came to their Freestyle dance, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy decided to surprise everyone in this final performance episode of 'Dancing with the Stars' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). In a routine filled with a surprising number of lifts, Alley proved lighter on her feet than we could have ever imagined.

Sure, they weren't all perfectly executed, but the judges applauded her effort and confidence in tackling them.

"That dance sort of embodies what I think you have become, which is the new poster child for life as it should be lived at 60 years old," Carrie Ann Inaba told a clearly worn out, but euphoric, Alley.

In the end, the pair scored 9s across the board for both of their dances, putting them definitively in third place with 54 points. The other two couples both scored a near-perfect 59 points, leaving it squarely in the public's hands to declare a winner.

Don't count out Kirstie Alley either, as she's had tremendous fan support throughout this season. Maybe they'll be as impressed as the judges by the spirit she showed tonight and rally her for the victory.

Who do you think should win?

Well to all you who loved to see Christie get as far as she could. . . good for you for being so charitable. She does win lots of admiration for as far as she got but Chelsea was by far the best dancer. No question there. Just seems that people loved to see the fattie lose weight and dance her buns right off with a really sexy partner. But then as everyone knows it's all about a fan base isn't it! Those votes count up.

just because she is 60 and fat doesn't mean she should come in second , yes she tried very hard but it's shouldn't be about how popular she is or was but who is the better dancer, and ctsturbine got it right

Wow, people can be so cruel in their comments. She is a 60 year old woman doing something many half her weight and age can not do...... Kudos to you Kirstie...

Kristie is not even close to being an elephant. But I agree she is a better actress, but ppl should admire her for going up on stage and giving it her all!

I hope everyone would be happy to see anyone of these couples win. They have really stepped up to the task. I think as far as the best dancer it would have to be Chelsea. She has great foot work and stays with the beat. I'm one who really thinks they all three should get the ball. Love Hines for his great attitude and smile. Kirsty has really lost the weight and has really showed everyone no matter the age you can do it.
