This is it! Dancing with the Stars' 24th season is nearly kaput, meaning tonight was the last chance for David, Rashad and Normani to show the world why they are the best (mostly) non-professional dancers in the entire universe!
Breakout DWTS competitor David, 40, and his pro partner Lindsay, 23, hit the ballroom first to dance an elegant Viennese Waltz, which they previously performed during Week 4. Tom Bergeron tells us Round 1 is a "Redemption" round, where contestants will dance a style they've done before and try to do it better this time. The two-and-a-half-hour live Dancing with the Stars finale kicks off at 8:30 p.m. Eastern on ABC.
"David, I've got to say, first, congratulations on making it through to the final". Odds are stacked in Kordei's favor, but there is a chance Jennings' 11th-hour pair of ideal scores could squeak him ahead by inches. The finalists will compete to win the Mirrorball trophy. They'll have one more dance in Tuesday night's season finale, where the Mirrorball Trophy will be awarded.
But the ex-catcher pulled out all stops for his upbeat baseball-themed freestyle with Arnold, which featured him passing out peanuts and then dancing in front of a dugout with plenty of backup dancers and bats as props.
They finally replay the "stumble" from Normani's dance last week and I still struggle to see it. I honestly think his freestyle alone deserves to win it for them. The judges faulted his posture and footwork.
"Week one I said, "David, not a home run but you got to first base" and every week after that I've been waiting for you to come out and knock it out of the park", said Judge Len Goodman.
In what turned out to be one of the most controversial eliminations in Dancing with the Stars history, Simone Biles was sent packing while David Ross advanced to the finals. Score: four 10s for a ideal 40. The singer-dancer from Fifth Harmony is a natural performer and displayed her gift in spades Dancing With the Star's dance floor. If you missed it we have a full and detailed recap, right here for you. Kordei still earned an impressive 38 out of 40 with 10s from Bruno and Carrie Ann and 9s from Len and Julianne. Bruno: Blown away! Sensational, talk about the man of the moment! #BabyChmerkovskiy #ParentsOfInstagram #ProudMomma A post shared by All Things Fam & Glam (@allthingsfamandglam) on Mar 29, 2017 at 8:45am PDT Murgatroyd explained that she had another reason for returning to DWTS just seven weeks postpartum, revealing that she knew it would also help her get her pre-nanny body back.
