Video: 'Dancing With The Stars All-Stars' Week 10 Recap, Finals

It's down to the girls in Season 15 of Dancing With The Stars All-Star edition: Shawn Johnson (Derek Hough), Kelly Monaco (Val Chmerkovskiy), Melissa Rycroft (Tony Dovolani) and it's anyone's guess, but tonight will determine the winner. Each couple will dance two dances. One being their favorite from the season, and the second being the Freestyle that ABC is referring to as 'Super-Sized'. What's so different? Lots: they'll be allowed to add extra performers, incorporating all kinds of lifts and tricks to create an out-of-this-world entertaining routine.

This, I can't wait to see.

Tomorrow's show (November 27) will see all of the eliminated couples return to the ballroom and perform some memorable dances.  As well, the three finalists perform a final 'instant dance' where the music and dance style will be revealed MINUTES before they actually dance! No pressure!

Can you believe the All-Stars season is almost over? The best season ever, in my opinion. The freestyle routines are going to be the best we've ever seen, and apparently, the winner of that dance is usually the crowning champion.

Who do you think will win the mirror ball trophy?

Keep hitting refresh because we are live blogging tonight's show with commentary and the scores.

Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy – Paso Doble – While there was a tiny glitch it was unbelievably passionate. These two were on fire and Len thought it was their best dance today. And Bruno's right: they burned the floor!. The level of precision was out-of-this world. They completely deserve to be here.

Scores:  9.5/10/10 = 29.5/30

Freestyle – Val is serenading Kelly with a violin while she is doing aerial work. Who knew he could play? They have also having the dance troupe in on the action. It will be sad to not see these two dance any more. And to have The Time of My Life from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack is perfect. Her aerial work was heavenly. Beautiful. Len thought it was spellbinding which is huge! Bruno thought it was superb and Carrie Ann thought it was wonderful. But are they or aren't they a 'real' couple? Why won't they tell us, damn it??

Scores:  10/9.5/10 = 29.5

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani – Samba – I am so glad that these two are in the finals. Tony has never won the trophy ball, and he deserves it. And Melissa has proved herself a worthy competitor dancing with injuries. The judges were all thrilled with their dance.

Scores: 10/10/10 = 30/30

Freestyle –  Poor Melissa she looks scared to bits during the rehearsals. This time around, they are not taking any chances and are stepping outside the norm by doing a contemporary freestyle. It was beautiful and intricate in its moves. Bruno referred to them as being a 'gem'. And Carrie Ann says they hit the jackpot because with great risk comes great reward. Len thought it was wonderful with its passion. I think he was choked up. Len would have given them an 11 if he could!

Scores: 10/10/10 = 30/30

Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough –  Quick Step – These two are at the top of their game. He is one of the finest choreographers on the show, and she's an Olympic gymnast. Their energy and drive is top-notch. These two still don't miss a beat when they dance together. This dance was as great now as the first time they performed it. 

Scores: 9/8.5/9.5 = 27/30

Freestyle –  They will be having the U.S. Women's Gymnastic team in their dance and you just know this is going to be spectacular! Shawn was forced to retire early because of her injury so to be reunited with her girls is perfection. That was probably one of the best freestyles ever. it was breathtaking, intricate and exciting. Len referred to this dance as a medley of Shawn and Derek's greatest hits and I couldn't agree with him more!

Scores: 10/10/10 = 30/30
