The Dancing With the Stars All Stars finale airs tonight on ABC and perhaps the best season of the show so far will be coming to an end. Which of the three remaining ladies will be crowned as the Dancing With the Stars All Stars winner? While heavy odds seem to be on Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough, not all the Dancing With the Stars predictions for tonight are picking them as the winners. Who won Dancing With the Stars All Stars 2012 is not as easy to predict as it might seem. Want to know who we think will take home the DWTS All Stars 2012 mirror ball trophy tonight?
A large number of Dancing With the Stars All Stars predictions on the fan sites the past few days are laying strong bets that Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough will come out on top as the DWTS All Stars winners. Her scores have been great most of the season and the judges have adored her routines even when she has deliberately broken the rules to better feature her gymnastics background. The fan support for Shawn Johnson has been extremely strong and she has been a consistent favorite all season long. However, she does have one big point against her–she’s already won a Dancing With the Stars crown.
Dancing with the Stars winner Hines Ward was worried about how he would stack up against Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerskovskiy because “everyone loves” Alley. Ward told reportes backstage after the Dancing with the Stars finale that when it came “down to voting, I didn’t know how I’d match up to Kirstie.”
Sadly for Kirstie Alley, who was very dissapointed by her loss, Hines Ward did indeed have enough votes to take home the top prize on Dancing with the Stars this season. Still, Alley feels she came out of her DWTS gig a winner anyway. â€œI donâ€™t feel like I won what I wanted to win, but I feel like I won something. Thatâ€™s a good way to put it,â€ Alley told Access Hollywood backstage. â€œLook â€” Iâ€™m competitive, I wanted to win. I know how hard we worked; I know what [Maks] had to begin with.”
As for her future plans, Kirstie Alley said she is done doing reality shows and hopes to return to her acting with new inspiration. She also said her partner, Maksim Chmerskovskiy deserves major props for taking the ‘oldest and heaviest’ contestant all the way to the finals.
Dancing with the Stars winner Hines Ward said he was truly motivated to win because he didn’t want to let his dancing partner, Kym Johnson, down. “I really wanted her to win her second mirror-ball trophy,” Hines said.
To future contestants, Ward said they should be “prepared to work your butt off” if they want to get to the DWTS finale. “You’re going to lose weight,” he said of the positive benefits, “but it’ll be very grueling on your feet.”
