Hines Ward Advances To Finals Of 'Dancing With The Stars'

Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward and partner Kym Johnson have advanced to the finals of Dancing With The Stars, which will be broadcast on Monday. Ward and Johnson looked to be in trouble on Friday, when Johnson had to be taken out of rehearsal on a stretcher after injuring her neck, but they performed very well this week on Monday, getting perfect scores in the tango and the salsa, and were rewarded Tuesday as the first couple to advance.

"The Karate Kid" Ralph Macchio and his partner Karina Smirnoff were eliminated this week. Joining Ward and Johnson in the finals will be Kirstie Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, along with Chelsea Kane and partner Mark Ballas.

After receiving news that they were headed to the finals, Ward and Johnson both emphasized that they would "eliminate some of the risky moves," in Ward's words, in the wake of Johnson's injury. But Johnson noted that she and Ward had "a great idea up our sleeve," and that the performance would still be exciting.
