"We're all worried," said Emmitt Smith to co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet near the start of Tuesday's Dancing With the All-Stars double elimination results show.
That's right -- two celebs were about to be sent packing.
KirstieAlley was at the bottom of the leaderboard, way below everyone else.The actress, 61, definitely seemed doomed. But who else would get theboot?
Kylie Minogue kicked off the show in such a short whitedress that she looked ready to take the floor for a sexy samba. Butinstead, she sang Locomotion, her 1988 hit.
And then camethe first results. Tom Bergeron told Melissa Rycroft and Shawn Johnsonthey're going to the semifinals. No surprise there (although Mondaynight judge Len Goodman tried to make us think Shawn might be introuble.)
The cast of Broadway show Newsies performed. And so did Ne-Yo, who sang his new song Let Me Love You(Until You Learn to Love Yourself).
Timefor the first elimination. Kelly Monaco and partner Val Chmerkovskiyand Kirstie Alley and partner Maks Chmerkovskiy chatted with Brooke.Said Kelly, "It's hard to be up here with Maks and Kirstie, knowing oneof us is going home."
Kirstie, however, was optimistic. "I feellucky. We have the best fans in the world. The opportunity to do thisthe second time around is nothing short of a A) a miracle, and B) sortof stunning!"
But Tom Bergeron announced that Kirstie was done.Going home. She didn't weep. She smiled and said this season "was veryspecial to me." She said she "learned more about dancing." And sheadded, "I want to thank Maks because he's so patient with me." She alsothanked the judges and the fans.

Finally,the moment we've all been waiting for. Emmitt was deemed safe, leavingApolo and Gilles (up until last week, the highest scorer in thecompetition) as the final two. Both guys looked nervous.
Eliminated(gasp!): Gilles. The crowd moaned. "In the end, it's just an incredibleexperience," said Gilles. "I tried my very best. Peta was an angel outthere," he said, "and I want to thank my wife. ..., Without her, I'mreally nothing."
