Radar: Who is your top pick to win DWTS this year? Why?
Cheryl: I think Kirstie Alley has a wonderful chance to win. She’s really become a great dancer and she has such an infectious personality that our audience loves.
Radar: Who is your favorite dance partner from over the years?
Cheryl: They’ve all been favorites for different reasons. I’m closest to Emmitt Smith and Gilles Marini though. We still text/talk all the time.
Radar: Who would be your dream dance partner?
Cheryl: Someone who is willing to take direction, work hard and not be too hard on themselves. At the end of the day it’s a dance competition so it’s okay to really want to win but you need to be able to keep your sense of humor…. Or George Clooney!
So, has Cheryl backed the right choice?
Tune into ABC at 9/8 central tonight for the season finale to see who will be crowned the ninth Dancing With The Stars winner !
