It's the moment millions of viewers have been waiting to see.

"This one is up in the air," said Kym Johnson, professional dancer.

She's talking about a competition that any one of three remaining couples could still win.

Hines Ward's dance partner is still recovering from a neck injury 10 days ago which was caught on camera.

"I don't want to see it. I think it might mess with my mind going into the finals and scaring me from doing a few things," Johnson said.

"No. You don't want to see it. I saw it. It's a scary feeling. So, mentally, I was pretty messed up for a while," said Hines Ward, "Dancing With the Stars" finalist.

But that didn't stop the dancing couple from earning a pair of perfect scores last week.

If the former Super Bowl MVP prevails, he would be the 6th athlete to win "Dancing With the Stars".

Cheryl Burke helped former running back Emmitt Smith win season three.

All of the contestants helped ratings rise this season says the head of ABC Entertainment.

"This year we have some breakout stars, we have some great dancers. It's just a fabulously diverse cast," said Paul Lee, ABC Entertainment.

Breakout star Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas emerged victorious last week after a Winner-Takes-All Cha Cha Cha.

At the age of 22, Chelsea is almost four decades younger than Kirstie Alley.

But the older actress has emerged as the fan favorite this season and her weight loss has been inspiring.

"All I go by is clothes. I bought all these dresses in these sizes going down, down, down, same dress," Kirstie Alley said.

A veteran, a rookie, and a wide receiver are left to compete and it's still anyone's game.

"Dancing With the Stars" airs Monday night at 8 p.m. and Tuesday night at 9 p.m. on ABC.
