It's the last all-performance show of the season and it's only an hour long. Let's hit it. Tom says they've been battling for a grueling nine weeks - feels so much longer doesn't it?  This season has felt weird overall, with skipped weeks, non-eliminations, double eliminations. The first round tonight will be "favorite" dances (aka re-runs!) and the second will be the "supersize" free-style, where they can bring in extra dancers to "enhance" the routine. Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy Paso Doble During rehearsal footage, Kelly notes that they made the finals without ever getting a 10. Val rightly points out that her fan base is strong.

Tonight is a tribute to Michael Jackson's "Bad" and the show starts with pros and the troupe performing to two of the album's "monster hits" - "Smooth Criminal" and "The Way You Make Me Feel. " I wish we were getting a "Thriller? tribute instead of a "Bad" tribute, but "Bad's" the one that's turning 25 and getting a Spike Lee-directed special on this same network later this week. We're calling the remaining couples "semi-finalists. " Whatever. The first round is going to be those weirdo made-up themes/styles and the second round is going to be the Michael Jackson music.

The first real marquee event in gymnastics airs live tonight with the women's team finals. The top two seeds are China and the United States. Each has an interesting story line. The Chinese are rocked by allegations that some of their athletes are underage (16 by year's end is the minimum). The U.S. team looks like a MASH unit with injuries decimating a pretty good team. So what happens? That's why they hold the competition, to find out. Apparatus in Women's Play Floor exercise: On a 40-foot-by-40-foot mat, a gymnast gets no more than 90 seconds to perform a choreographed routine to music.

NFLers rules Diane Pucin Los Angeles Times Apolo Anton Ohno dazzled with his footwork. Shawn Johnson dazzled with her determination and her leg strength. Kristi Yamaguchi was elegant, Helio Castroneves was smooth, but the best athlete to win "Dancing With the Stars" has to be one of the NFLers. Emmitt Smith and Hines Ward play a sport where you have to be strong and fast, use your hands and your feet. So which one is it, Smith or Ward? Who should win the Super Bowl Mirror Ball, if we were to give one for the best of the athlete winners?

BEIJING - The gold medal went away a little for the United States today when the tiny Chinese uneven bars workers twirled and let go and caught those chalky bars as if they were in a gym with a few friends and no pressure. And it went away a little more when Alicia Sacramone fell on her mount on the balance beam and scored nearly half a point lower than usual. It was gone for sure when Sacramone, up first on floor exercise, fell on her second pass, a hard sit down when the U.S. needed perfection.

BEIJING - Shawn Johnson had dark circles under her brown eyes and a headache, but when she jumped on the balance beam last night, she switched on her smile and defiantly pounded out a gold-medal routine. It wasn't the gold Johnson wanted. She had come here as the favorite to win the all-around title, had hoped to lead the U.S. team to a gold medal, had hoped to defend her world championship in the floor exercise and add to that a balance-beam gold medal. But through a succession of silvers - team, all-around, floor - Johnson, 16, of West Des Moines, Iowa, stuck out her chin, wiped away tears and insisted that silver was just as nice as gold.

Shawn Johnson, 18, strode down the dark street, rushing home from the library early one evening, when a lady walking in front of him abruptly stopped and dropped her bags. There she stood, frozen, until Shawn walked past."It was kind of sad. She thought I was going to mug her or something," Shawn says, shaking his head. "And I was just thinking about getting home and working on [a school] project."The woman's reaction did not faze Shawn. It is something he and his younger brother, Gerald, 16, are accustomed to. They are good, church-going young men who have never been in trouble.
