dwts kirstie rehearse 'Dancing with the Stars': Kirstie Alley's totally hot cha cha chaKirstie Alley has been talking up her “Dancing with the Stars” game for days on Twitter. But did she live up to her own hype? In a word: yes.

The 60-year-old actress and 24/7 tweeter, who confessed to being “like, a ‘Dancing with the Stars’ ho,” showed off some serious moves with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The pair dance a hot cha cha cha to song of the moment, Cee-Lo Green’s “Forget You.”

With fellow Scientologist Kelly Preston in the audience cheering her on, Alley got the crowd totally worked up with her moves. Judge Bruno Tonioli praised Alley for her work, saying her “foot placement in cha cha cha was best of the night.”

Against every instinct, we concur. Not only did Alley nail the moves, but her personality — of which she has an ample portion — came through loud and clear.

As judge Len Goodman said, “It made me feel good.” Us, too.

What do you think? Was Kirstie Alley’s the surprise performance of the season opener?
