Kelly Monaco & Valentin Chmerkovskiy Head To DANCING WITH THE STARS Finals?
On Monday night, they performed a surfer-inspired flamenco that did not sit well with the judges, and was called more of a paso doble than a flamenco. Though Chmerkovskiy, 26, stripped down to his speedo for the routine and Monaco, 36, held her own with precise lines and execution, according to the judges, they received a score of 25.5 out of 30, the lowest of the night.

Their second routine was a rumba to the Michael Jackson hit "I Just Can't Stop Loving You." The dance, which ended with Moncao and Chmerkovskiy passionately kissing, received better reviews from the judges.

Bruno Tonioli said "that was driven by desire, consumed by lust. I'm telling you the chemistry between you two is literally clinching." They scored 28.5 out of 30.

Lionsgate is said to be in advanced negotiations with an unspecified buyer. Deal would fetch in the neighborhood of $20 million for TVGuide.com, Deadline reported Monday. Another report later that day, from blog AllThingsD, mentioned that Yahoo was one of the potential buyers. A rep for Lionsgate declined comment.
