'Dancing with the Stars' Semi-Finals: Elimination Predictions

This was a lot easier when there were 11 choices for Dancing with the Stars eliminations. With only four all of whom are decently good performers it's nearly impossible to make a legitimate prediction about who is going home.

But that's what I'm here for, so I guess I'll try.

Most likely to go:
Ralph Macchio (score = 48)
Ralph is still sweet, popular and charismatic, but his dancing isn't up to the standard at this point. With the lowest scores of the night (by a decent margin), Ralph is in serious danger.

Most deserves to go:
Ralph Macchio
How much do I hate this choice? But, alas, Ralph is now being out-danced by the rest of his competition. He is still the best performer, in the sense of inhabiting his role in each dance, but the technique isn't there on the same level. Maybe it's the lingering injury, maybe it's hitting his limits, but Ralph is done.

That said, his wide and passionate fan base may pull off a miracle.

Should be worried:
Kirstie Alley (score = 54)
Kirstie had a great night of dancing. She looked good, threw her substantial personality out there and the results reflected that. But she was somewhat upstaged by Hines' perfection and Chelsea's never-say-die cha-cha win. Probably the combination of fan support and scores will keep her safe, but Kirstie needs to watch her back into the finals.

Chelsea Kane (score = 73)
With her cha-cha win, Chelsea probably has the scores to make it into the finals, regardless of whether anybody votes for her. And that's not wrong: Chelsea has out-danced everyone (except possibly Hines) for weeks now. She's not the popular choice, but she deserves her finals spot.

Probably safe... For now:
Hines Ward (score = 60)
A popular, fun and charismatic dancer supports his partner through a possibly career-ending injury and makes perfect scores all night? Really, is there any chance of Hines not making it to the finals at this point? That salsa alone should qualify him.
