It's a good thing that the choice of which Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars celebrity faces elimination is left to the faceless masses. Making an individual choice is just too hard! But that's why they pay me the big bucks -- to make these tough decisions. Thus, we have predictions for tonight's DWTS elimination.

Most Likely to Be Eliminated

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas (score = 18)

The couple with the lowest score in any given week must worry about elimination. Even if half that couple is the near-unbeatable Bristol Palin.

Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya (score = 22.5)
Was last week's near-elimination a wake-up call or a warning of things to come? Past champion or not, Drew really needs to get scores or popularity if he is going to stay long.

Should Be Eliminated

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas

Bristol may have improved since season 11, but she is still way out of her league in the All-Star season. With the lowest scores and a lackluster performance, Bristol definitely should be eliminated. But will she? That's always a big question with Miss Palin.

Should Be Worried

Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (score = 21)
Her scores aren't all that high, but Kirstie has a strong and large fan base. That's probably enough to keep her around for now, but it is not enough to feel safe.

Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke (score = 22.5)
Although not a bad dance by any standard, this was a bit of a downfall from week 1. The fans can sometimes revolt against that.

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani (score = 23.5)
They gave a good performance, but this couple also danced first. Will the voters remember them?

Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy (score = 22)
The dance was pretty, but the judges had a lot of criticism. Will Kelly's soap-opera fan base keep her going?

Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson (score = 22.5)
The performance was fun enough to draw in voters. The scores were OK. As long as dance-technique fanatics stay out of it, Joey should be OK.

Helio Castroneves and Chelsie Hightower (score = 23)
The judges were happy, and the dance was good. Assuming others didn't feel as disconnected as I did from this dance, Helio and Chelsie should be OK.

Probably Safe... For Now

Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff (score = 24.5)
The dance was nearly perfect, and Apolo is a personable guy. It will take a lot to knock out the speed skater.

Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough (score = 25)
If Shawn made it through her first week -- with a seriously imperfect dance -- a much improved second week shouldn't pose much of a problem.

Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel (score = 26)
You don't eliminate the highest scorer of the night, do you? Even with Sabrina's frightening past of elimination in the face of incredible performances, it's too early to say goodbye.

Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd (score = 25.5)
This is what we get when he is hurt? How could anyone not want Gilles to continue after his second performance?
