Well my fellow Dancing With The Stars' fans, this is it. Tonight (November 27) is the night where one of our three remaining couples will be taking home the coveted mirror ball trophy:
Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy
Shawn Johnson & Derek Hough
Melissa Rycroft & Tony Dovolani
If I remember correctly, I believe Tom Bergeron mentioned it's an extra special trophy this year because this is after all the All-Star edition, so it may be all kinds of fancy.
As we mentioned last night, the finalists will be receiving dance music and styles tonight at the last minute for one final dance. Talk about nerve-wracking! Keep hitting refresh on this post because we are going to be blogging it liiiivvvvveeeeee.
Tonight's two-hour show airs live on ABC at 9 p.m. ET.
The show started out with the eliminated celebrities dancing with their partners to an incredible number that was choreographed by Lacey Schwimmer.
Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli picked Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough's Super-Sized Freestyle for their encore performance.
Kenny Maynes, Jerry Rice and Len Goodman's 'Dance Center' critiqued the season's dancers in their comical manner complete with facial stickers and video footage from the season during rehearsals that we've never seen before.
Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy – 'Cat & Mouse' – Jive – She was the first ever mirror ball winner, and you know she wants it again. Can you blame her? These two were perfect together all season and they didn't disappoint in their instant jive. With about an hour to practice they were perfect.I can't wait to find out if these two are actually a couple, although who's kidding who, right? Brooke Burke-Charvet grilled these two and all the copped to was that theirs was just a friendship. Then they panned to the studio and all of this season's celebrities were laughing.
Scores: 9.5/9.5/9.5 = 28.5/30
Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani – 'Live is a Highway' – Samba – I am so happy for both of them that they made it this far. Such sweethearts. They got so many perfect scores throughout the entire season and I wouldn't be surprised if they get it for this dance. They worked so hard on such a consistent basis throughout all of this.
Scores: 9.5/9.5/9.5 = 28.5/30
Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough – 'Respect' – Cha - Cha - In the footage before the dance, Derek really choked up on his partnership with her and stated how she gave him confidence again. I don't know what that means, but more importantly, I can't imagine why he needed it. I hope he is okay. I'd say based on that dance, these two just won the mirror ball trophy. Derek is really emotional tonight.
Scores: 10/10/10 = 30/30
While the 3 finalists are practicing and choosing costumes, we are getting to see the eliminated couples come back to dance.
Drew Lachey not only did his dance with his partner Anna Trebunskaya, his daughter was also part of the dance. That was especially precious.
Team Gagnam Style performed and if you recall, that meant Gilles Marini in a towel. Life is good.
Who do you think will win Season 15?
The first couple of the three eliminated tonight is Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy. The couple in second place is Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough, which means FINALLY the winner of the All-Star season of Dancing With The Stars is: MELISSA RYCROFT & TONY DOVOLANI!!!!!!!
