Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovsky Survive Elimination, Head to Finale on DWTS: All Stars 2012

Kelly Monaco and her dancer partner Valentin Chmerkovsky survived Tuesday's eliminations in "Dancing With the Stars: All Stars" and celebrated just as they know best: kissing.

The much talked about couple in this season is heading to the finale along with Shawn Johnson and her partner Derek Hough and Melissa Rycroft and her partner Tony Dovolani.

Monaco and Chmerkovsky, who have put up a show throughout the season, often kissing and hugging each other during and after their routines, were saved by viewers' votes.

On tonight's elimination show, Monaco said she was determined to work her hardest for the finale and give the judges no other choice than to give her a score of 10.

Former NFL star Emmit Smith and Olympic skater Apolo Ohno were eliminated tonight.

"This competition was hard from the beginning and being a champion, I learned so much about her [Smirnoff] and so much about myself, this show is forces you to become a champion, more confident, stronger, it's been a blessing, every single week the fans have been amazing," Ohno said following his elimination.

"It's a tremendous experience, she [Cheryl] has pushed me to another level, season three was something else but this one right here was over the top," Smith said after his elimination.

The Wanted and Paula Abdul performed on tonight's show.

Dancing with the Stars: All Stars" finale will air Monday November 26th at 8pm EST.
