Two more couples were eliminated Tuesday night from "Dancing With The Stars: All Stars."
The first elimination of Tuesday night's show was Kirstie Alley, who tallied up the lowest points from her performance last week. The big question about the double-elimination night was who the second unlucky contestant would be.
Genial Gilles Marini, the smooth French actor who spoke softly but carried an attractive six-pack, was the first to go in the double-elimination night as the all-star edition of the show comes down to the final few.
"It was a wonderful experience, I got to do it twice," Marini said.
According to CBS News, this is a big loss of a performer who combined skill, sex appeal and real artistry.
"Gilles, what I love about him every week, 100 percent, full-on, flat-out, giving it everything," said head judge Len Goodman.
Alley, 61, was unable to keep pace with the younger dancers but definitely proved that she could, as she made it through three rounds past her actual skill level. According to CBS News, Alley made it this far by using comic timing and audience manipulation.
"You know, the second time around was very special to me," Alley said after learning of her elimination. "I just love dancing!"
Five teams made it to the semifinal show next week. The scores for those five teams are high and the remaining competitors are so closely packed together on the scoreboard that the audience will be a real deciding factor in the weeks to come, and it won't be easy.
The remaining contestants, Shawn Johnson, Melissa Rycroft, Kelly Monaco, Apolo Ohno and Emmitt Smith will be performing to the music of Michael Jackson's "Bad" album.
