We're down to the final four on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," and soccer star Hope Solo still has an outside shot at winning the mirror ball trophy.

If the show ended today, the order likely would be: soap star/war veteran J.R. Martinez (winner), followed by talk show host Ricki Lake, Solo and then reality star Rob Kardashian.

But on Monday's semifinals, things could change.

Solo and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy will dance the Argentine tango and the paso doble before doing a group cha-cha-cha relay.

Solo tweeted on Sunday, "At rehearsals realizing how bad i want 2 make the finals."

Cheryl Burke, who dances with Kardashian, said fans shouldn't count out Solo, as she has come on strong in the past few weeks.

"She's slowly getting into this show. She's really transforming into a dancer," said Burke, who won a title with former 98 Degrees singer Drew Lachey and then NFL Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith. "When the show began, she didn't even want to use a spray tan. Now, her dresses are becoming sexier and she's becoming more feminine."
