Dancing with the Stars Season 20, The Final Performances – Let’s Discuss Tonight’s Show!! (Spoilers)

Well, I took an unscientific poll of Derek fans. Everyone appears to be voting Riker. Granted, I have 11k followers and only about 30 people responded to the tweet…but only one or two said they were voting Noah. Everyone else said Riker. I have NO idea if this is the best course of action. One minute I think Riker has a better shot, then five seconds later I’m thinking Noah is getting a ton of votes. The fact that they called Riker safe makes me think that he was the one that was only 1.5% ahead of Nastia…then five minutes later I think that he was in first place. I have no idea.

As I preach every week in my “Dancing by the Numbers” post, it’s NOT just the voters, but the judges as well. Their points count for half. Generally, the finale and semi-final can go one of two ways. The judges rank the couples by handing out scores that put someone in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place OR they throw out scores in such a way to create a tie – that’s called throwing it to the audience. Which way will they go?? Well, if they throw it to the audience, I expect that it’s Rumer’s to lose. After all their hard, hard work this season in making sure Val gets a MBT, are they likely to throw it to the audience if she didn’t have it in the bag? Maybe, maybe not. I feel schizophrenic. :-) At the end of the day, if Noah is within three points, I would want to vote for him. However…if all the Derek fans are going with Riker, well then I should go with them, right?? :::sigh::: We’ll discuss this again at the end of round one. ;-)

Okay, Noah up first with his AT.

He was pretty unsteady in spots…but a 32 may be the nail in his coffin, depending on how the other two do.

Riker up next with his Paso – which he pretty much killed. If he gets nitpicked, I’ll be pissed.

Standing ovation from Len?? Either Riker is doing horrible in votes or he’s doing amazing. No middle ground.

Aren’t you shocked that Rumer is going last?? I know I am. (end sarcasm)

Okay, required Rumer tears…check. Required Val kindness…check. Required repeat of Len’s prediction that it’s Val’s season…check.

A bit out of sync…and still rather hard. Bruno mentions “hollywood royalty” and “dancing royalty”. CAI says poetry in motion. Oy veh. Long night.

Difference after round one….Noah needs about 72k more votes per million votes cast to beat either Rumer or Riker. Biggest Margin ever, I think. This will change after the freestyles, but it looks like I’m voting Noah.

Okay, Noah’s freestyle was killer. I loved it. It best be a perfect score. They’ve handicapped him enough.

Dance party in the red room and Erin makes a funny at Redfoo. :-)

Aaannnndd…Noah gets a perfect score. Well deserved but it also seemed pre-planned.

Lot’s of pressure on Rumer and Val because Riker just slayed it with a fun, different, cool free style.

Welp, I’m voting Riker….I hope you do too. :-D

Someone explain to me how that was a freestyle?? And how it was markedly different from anything else she did all season long. Me thinks they missed the whole point of a freestyle.

Gee, where have I heard that bit about stripping it down….oh, that’s right, DEREK.

Okay, with a diferential of about 35k votes, I’m voting Riker. You also have to remember there is a dance that is scored tomorrow. Need to vote to make up for the underscoring that Riker will likely get.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Len Goodman’s Thoughts On The Final Three Of Dancing With The Stars Season 20

Be sure to see USA Today! They have a special preview of the final three couples of Dancing With The Stars Season 20 where Len Goodman highlights each couple’s strengths.

The mirrorball trophy is up for grabs as Dancing with the Stars’ final three couples take the floor Monday to compete in the ABC dance competition (8 p.m. ET/PT).

After last week’s surprise elimination of Olympian Nastia Liukin and five-time pro champ Derek Hough, it’s hard to guess who will be crowned Season 20 winners Tuesday.

Judge Len Goodman places Willis at the top of his leader board going into the finale, but says the best dancer doesn’t always win. “It’s anyone’s to win and anyone’s to lose now,” he says.
