Who Will Be the 'Dancing' Champion?

Billy Ray Cyrus and Karina Smirnoff just got the boot from “Dancing with the Stars,” and now the competition is down to four!

“Dancing” judge Carrie Ann Inaba is revealing exclusively to “Extra” who she thinks will be crowned champ.

“I think it's going to be a toss up between Leila and Apolo,” she told us.

Carrie Ann also revealed she wasn’t the only one surprised to see former ‘NSYNC boy toy Joey Fatone in the bottom two.

“When they called out 'Joey Fatone' I was watching his face, and it just dropped! I think we were all shocked,” Carrie said.

But there is one thing she isn’t surprised about: the bumbling feet of Billy Ray.

“You can’t deny it was a miracle he lasted,” Carrie said. “Had we had an elimination in the first week, he may have been cut.”

Billy Ray and Karina lasted eight weeks, but now Karina is telling “Extra” a behind-the-scenes secret that she said could have cost the couple their dancing crown.

Karina says the judges made her lose her secret weapon: a wig, inspired by “Extra’s” own Tanika Ray!

“The producers said to take it off, it was too crazy,” Karina revealed. “I said, ‘Do you not know? I’m trying to look like Tanika!’”

The final four will face the music in the semi-finals, Monday night.
