The Finals are finally here!  Everything is riding on our Stars’ dances tonight!  After 9 weeks, Mya & Dmitry, Donny & Kym and Kelly & Louis are our Finalists who are battling it out for the Disco Ball Trophy!  They will dance an individual dance, a megamix dance where they will dance side by side and the Freestyle.

Kelly is still blown away by this opportunity and how she has grown into such a lady and Dancer.  This week, Kelly & Louis got their surprise visit from Carrie Anne to supervise their rehearsal and give them some last minute pointers on being intense and passionate when she dances.  Tonight, they danced the Argentine Tango.   This was a good dance and I do think that Carrie Ann’s coaching helped, because Kelly has mastered looking intense.   But for me, she doesn’t flow effortlessly, it still looks like she is unsure of herself.   Len thought that she epitomizes what the competition is about.  She danced right up there and deserves to be in the finals.  Bruno thinks that she mastered the moves of the dance, but it needed more sex.  He thought it was good.  Carrie Ann thought that it was a sophisticated routine and she sustained the intensity of the dance.  (MAC-8) Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Bruno-8=26

Mya and Dmitry.   Mya is the only Star to earn a perfect score this season!  Although they have had great feedback from Carrie and Bruno all along, they finally won over Len in the last two weeks.  They got Len as their guest Judge to guide them in practice.  Tonight, they danced the Paso Doble.  Bravo!  Lesson learned!  They aced it!  Let’s see what Len says.  I loved their costume.  The Paso Doble always has the sexiest costumes.   Bruno loved how fearless and flambouyant it was.  Amazing.  Carrie Ann dubbed her the Queen of the Paso Doble.  Len thought she danced like it was no sweat off her back although the pressure must be tremendous.  He likended this Paso Doble to his Favorite done by Mel B.   (MAC-10), Carrie Ann-10, Len-10, Bruno-10=30

Donny and Kym.  Donny has a whole life of performing to draw on when he performs.  He is endearing to his fans even when he has a bad dance day.  In rehearsal, they got some feedback from Bruno who wants him to win because of what he can do, not because of who he is.  They danced the Cha Cha Cha..  An awkward start that blossomed into a likeable dance.  I don’t think that there is too much that Donny can do to change his larger than life showmanship.  I have said it time and time again.  He is not the best dancer, but I am actually happy when I watch him, so hey, what more can you ask for?  Carrie Ann loved it, although she did note a little problems with some movements.  She loved his hip action.  Len also thought that he did very well.  Bruno let us know how hard that Donny worked in rehearsal and that all of his efforts have paid off.  Well done!  (MAC-8),  Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Bruno-9=27

Megamix Round
Nick Kosovich is the Choreographer for tonight’s Megamix.  The dancers will be performing 3 different dances side by side: Viennese Waltz, The Samba and The Jive.  Ooh…this wasn’t a very good idea.  It made me dizzy!  Everyone was doing their own thing.  It also showcased Kelly was a little behind the others.  The Judges thought that it was really really difficult to Judge (it made them dizzy too).  Bruno had compliments for all of them.  Carrie Anne also was complimentry to each dancer as well.   My scoring matched the Judges exactly: In 3rd place- Kelly & Louis with 26, 2nd place- Donny & Kym with 28 and in 1st place- Mya and Dmitry with30.

Freestyle Round
Kelly and Louis.  They picked ‘I will Survive’ as their song which is also their Theme song.  I like Kelly and you can tell that when she performed this, she had tons of fun; but at times, this dance was kind of a mess.  Although it didn’t look like a Finals dance, I enjoyed it.  Bruno thought she looked beautiful, even though there were mistakes.  Carrie Ann thought that she showed that she was definitely a survivor.  Len loved that she was singing and smiling even when she messed up.  (MAC-8) Carrie Anne-8, Len-8, Bruno-8=24

Mya and Dmitry.  I hate to say this, but  the first part of the dance was more memorable for the music and Mya’s fun skirt.  I actually expected alot more.  The second half came more alive and they captured the spirit of it’s inspiration from ‘Hairspray’.  Carrie Anne thought it was high energy, but not high energy.  It didn’t showcase Mya.  Len agreed with Carrie Anne 100%.  Bruno thought that she owned the beat of the dance, but he expected more of a spectacular dance from her.  Sadly, I agree.  (MAC-8) Carrie Ann-9, Len-9, Bruno-9=27

Donny & Kym.  In rehearsal, Kym brought in Marie and Johnathon Roberts to prepare him for the finals and get him used to seeing his sister in the audience.  I think that Donny had the best Freestyle tonight.  Totally enjoyable and it played to his showbiz roots!  Len thought it was a showstopper.  Bruno thought it was show business at it’s best.  Carrie Ann put Donny in the Hall of Fame for the Free Style Round.  I agree (MAC-10), Carrie Ann-10, Len-10, Bruno-10=30

I think that Kelly will be the first one eliminated tomorrow night.  It will be down to Donny & Kym and Mya and Dmitry.  I think that Mya is the stronger dancer and that she has been the most consistent Star of the Season.  But Donny has an appeal that is huge and his Osmond roots go deep in this Country!  So, it is anyone’s guess!
