The Dancing with the Stars season 16 finale results are in the books and this is our latest entry in our full list of Dancing with the Stars music. There was a lot of music on the DWTS 2013 finale results show, so I thought I’d list it for those looking for it. Thanks everyone who downloaded the music. Next week, we’ll look at doing a list of the top DWTS music from this season.
Jacoby & Karina danced an Instant Salsa to the song “Aguanile” -Héctor Lavoe
Kellie & Derek danced an Instant Jive to the song “Keep A-Knockin'” –Little Richard
Zendaya & Val danced an Instant Jive to the song “Rockin’ Robin” –Bobby Day
Here’s the list of special guest performance music as well:
Jessica Sanchez – “Feel This Moment”
Psy – “Gentleman”
Wynonna Judd – “I Want To Know What Love Is”
Pitbull feat. Papayo – “Echa Pa’lla (Manos Pa’rriba)”
This was a pretty interesting show, actually. Hated the reused choreo from pro dances during the season, but I liked the little cameos in the dances like the one of Len with Lisa and Andy and the boys with PSY.
Shock of the night….Aly was in 4th place. A whole bunch of filler later and we find Jacoby got third place…and had the best goodbye package in the history of this show.
Then it came down to, as expected, Kellie and Zendaya….and the winner is: KELLIE AND DEREK!!
How did we do?
Heidi: I said Zendaya would win with Kellie in the #2 spot. My second choice was Zendaya winning with Aly in the #2 spot.
Courtney: Said Zendaya was going to win with Kellie in #2 spot.
Vogue: Put Kellie in the #1 spot with Zendaya in #2.
Winner (besides Kellie and Derek?): Vogue and Whoever said pimping doesn’t always win. Very happy to be WRONG.
Please think about giving to Regional Food Bank, a local Oklahoma charity – I hear it’s good. If you don’t trust that, try the American Red Cross. My brother was hit by Katrina and raved about the Red Cross and everything they did in his community. Obviously, our thoughts and prayers are with those affected in Oklahoma. Thank you.
Well, that’s that. Can’t say I’m sad this season is over. Seriously, another twitter vote?? Why not just fess up and admit you want Zendaya to dance again cuz this is your last chance to pimp the crap out of her. Not even CLOSE to the best freestyle of the night, yet we’re likely going to have to see it again. Absolutely ridiculous. By the way, Tony Dovolani – you’ve been SCHOOLED on how to do a contemporary freestyle, my friend. You too, Maks. Take notes. Derek pretty much ruined contemporary for the rest of you on this show going forward. Read more..
Louis Van Amstel has penned a new blog at ABC. Surprisingly enough, he’s picking Kellie Picker to win the mirror ball on Dancing With The Stars (which I agree with and why). Be sure to read the link for more.
So, if you judge it on freestyle alone, Kellie will take away the Mirror Ball trophy. Looking back at her season, she has been nothing but consistent. Sometimes she was too much in her head, but always physically giving it her all.
If you look at showing personality, performance level and always giving well-rounded show stoppers, Zendaya could definitely win. She sometimes had issues finishing off her movement, but she also had very consistent weeks.
Even though Aly got a late start, by being in the middle of the pack until well into the competition, with her fan base, she might still be able to overtake Kellie and Zendaya. Like I said last week with Ingo, the same goes for Jacoby this week. The only way for him to win is if his fan base will stay up all night to vote. Otherwise, it couldn’t happen.
After all is said and done, I don’t want to just be diplomatic and not pick a winner, because that would be kind of lame, so … drumroll. Taking the entire season into account, looking at dance technique, performance, overall personality, and who I think touched us watching this season, I’d give the Mirror Ball trophy of Season 16 to Kellie Pickler!
Also, you can watch Louis, Chelsie Hightower, and dancing alumni Helio Castroneves talking on last night’s finale with GMA this morning HERE. They go over all the freestyles and the negatives and positives. In the end, two pick Kellie to win and one picks Zendaya.
Stay tuned. Miss Heidi’s new Numbers and Predictions post is coming up next!!
Wow, what a finale on Dancing With The Stars!! All four contestants are truly winners in some way. Let’s get right to the new interviews for what took place after Monday night’s show with George Pennacchio of On The Red Carpet. However, first, just a personal thank you to all of you for following along, reading us, and all of your support and participations this season. Also, don’t forget we don’t go away in the off season. We continue to report on all of the pros and cast from their dance and Red Carpet appearances and more. We also have some “exclusive” interviews planned. Courtney holds an Awards and much more. Heidi has some cool new series ideas planned….and then there is the new Cheesecake Awards. Plus, we post on all the NEW RUMORS for the new cast next season. Note: in the last off season, Jacoby Jones was rumored to dance right after the finals. So, you never know when a new rumor will pop up. It’s fun. So, don’t go away. Ok, time for some new interviews.
First up, Kellie and Derek!!! They talk of the “moment” they had during their Freestyle and the chances they took. Derek’s Mom was crying as she was so proud. Kellie is so happy for all the greatest new friends she made. Win or lose, they will cherish every moment.
George tells Jacoby that he may be an underdog, but, sometimes this can work in someone’s favor. He tells Jacoby he shouldn’t be down. Karina loves Jacoby and would not change a second of this journey. Also, there is no rest for Jacoby. As soon as Dancing With The Stars is over, he will head straight to football practice for the Baltimore Ravens. When George presses Jacoby on why he’s upset again, Jacoby says he’s mad and a competitor. He wanted higher scores, but, George says the fans could come through for them.
Aly says for whatever happens tomorrow, she knows they did their best. She stresses how ‘everyone’ did the their best. Mark talks of how they wanted to do something new and different for their freestyle. He’s proud of Aly and thinks she was the most improved dancer this season. Aly says she’s grown as a person, she had so much fun, and she just enjoyed herself. She’s learned to be more relaxed in front of the camera and trusts people more too.
George ask Val straight up on his eye injury. It was unsettling and it panicked everyone. Zendaya says win or lose, she did something she never thought possible by just making it to the finals.
There aren’t any Access Hollywood interviews posted yet, but, be sure to be watching this link as they may post some later. Same with ET Online.
E News interviewed Val and Zendaya. Oddly enough, Val thinks the eye injury helped his performance…..
“It was an hour before the show, so everybody panicked,” Val explained of his injury. “There were talks about replacing me, and that was not going to happen. I was just praying it was going to stop bleeding, which, thank God, it did because it’s a very deep cut.”
Zendaya recalled the scary moment during the rehearsal when her elbow hit Val’s eye, saying, “I already knew it was bad, and then he was going through dress rehearsal with blood all over his face. I just had to keep going because I know he wants me to keep going. He kept smiling, so that’s the cue to keep on going.”
Oddly enough, Val told us he believes the injury actually helped his performance. “My back is killing me. Like seriously killing me. My shoulder is killing me. [My eye] honestly took my mind off all that pain. I’m lucky it happened…It made me enjoy the moment a little more.”
Lastly, Henry of POPTVDotCom also has some coverage of the cast going to dinner, etc. after the show. They express their thoughts and sympathies on the Oklahoma tornado and more. Emmitt Smith was there and talks to Henry too.
