"Dancing With The Stars" Semifinals Underway Tonight

It's semifinals night on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars" with actress Jennifer Grey, R&B star Brandy, Disney star Kyle Massey, and teen activist Bristol Palin remaining. Grey -- who memorably starred in "Dirty Dancing" with the late Patrick Swayze -- has said her work on that film doesn't make her a "ringer" for the mirrorball trophy. But the 50-year-old actress has spent most of the season at the top of the judges' leaderboard. Also a judges' darling is the 31-year-old Brandy, who has steadily improved in the competition. Massey has had a more uneven run on the show, but the 19-year-old's recent string of high marks have put him near the top as the season approaches its conclusion. The only competitor who is neither a performer nor a professional athlete is Palin. The 20-year-old daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has admitted that she's surprised to still be on the show. She's survived several weeks in which she's received the lowest score from the judges. The final four will "hoof it out" on "Dancing With The Stars" tonight at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on ABC.
