PureDWTS Season 22 Finale Night One: Scores, Recaps, Interviews, Fusion Dance Teasers, And More

Today is Mark Ballas’ birthday! Wouldn’t it be an awesome birthday present to win Dancing With The Stars Season 22? I thought he and Paige were the best last night. I must have watched both dances 10 times before heading to bed. I loved Peta and Nyle too. I loved their Freestyle. I hope they get second! Just please don’t let the outcome tonight be in the order the judges put them last night. In my opinion, Ginger and Val’s freestyle was not worth a 10….

Paige VanZant & Mark Ballas (Salsa) 10-9-10 for a Total of 29 and (Freestyle) 10-10-10 for a Total of 30. GRAND TOTAL: 59
Ginger Zee & Valentin Chmerkovskiy (Salsa) 9-10-9 for a Total of 28 and (Freestyle) 10-10-10 for a Total of 30. GRAND TOTAL: 58
Nyle DiMarco & Peta Murgatroyd (Quickstep) 9-9-9 for a Total of 27 and (Freestyle) 10-10-10 for a Total of 30. GRAND TOTAL: 57

So, onto the Media. First, see Fox411 for a few thoughts from the Final Three after the show. Glamour has a review and some backstage goodies. Below is a take with Peta and Mark’s thoughts on the Fusion dance and more. I didn’t realize Nyle’s interpreter was sick.

First matter of business: Where was Nyle’s interpreter, Ramon? Turns out, he was sick, which is why “we had this interpreter take over!” joked Nyle backstage of the new guy. Laughs aside, it was all business for Nyle and Peta after the show, who now have 24 hours to perfect their fusion dance. Of course, it will be hard to top after their mind-blowing freestyle. “It really touched me,” said Nyle of Carrie Ann’s comments that it was the best dance in the show’s history. “I don’t mean to use the deaf card often, but as a deaf guy, [the fact that] I was able to produce the best dance in 22 seasons [is incredible]. I think that’s really what makes it the best and more personal.” Added Peta: “I wanted it to be so powerful and so undeniably touching for everybody. I think we did it. Nyle has left everything on that dance floor. I don’t think we could do anymore.”

Sleep, on the other hand, might be a bit of a problem. “Honestly, I’m probably going to be too wired [tonight] to sleep,” admitted Nyle. Peta’s in the same boat. “I definitely won’t be sleeping,” she added. “Tomorrow is the most nerve-racking of them all, coming in with a suitcase [to travel to New York City] and not knowing what the outcome is.”

Although Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas are at the top of the leaderboard, it’s still anyone’s guess who will walk away with the Mirrorball. “You never know what’s going to happen, but the most important thing and what I think always depicts the champion at the end, is how strong the team is,” relayed Mark. “When you can tell there is genuine care and love for one another, and when the dances are executed correctly, [that’s when the magic happens]. Look back over the seasons at some of the best teams—Rumer [Willis] and Val, Alfonso [Ribeiro] and Witney, Derek and Kellie [Pickler], me and Shawn [Johnson]—you look at these teams and they were one [unit] when they got out there.”

So what’s Mark’s advice to his other half over the next 24 hours? “The hard part is done, and [the fusion dance at the finale] is meant to be fun. It’s the last one…just enjoy it.” Solid words, but easier said than done, especially if you’re Paige VanZant. “It’s scary that the journey is ending,” she said before heading into rehearsal, “but I feel so blessed that I was here.”

Paige VanZant Writes On Her Final Dances, A DWTS Promo From People

Paige VanZant has written a new blog at People. She gives us a little preview for tonight. Read on….

One of the dances Mark and I will be doing is our salsa routine, which is special because that was the routine he got injured doing in rehearsals and I had to dance with troupe member Alan Bersten instead. I’m so glad we get to finally do it together.

For our second dance, we’re doing a contemporary routine. I feel like I’ve opened up a bit about my struggles, and this emotional routine will kind of be the final chapter of my story of hardship. I want to show everyone that if you can push through the pain, you can have a bright future.

As I’ve opened up more and more, I think I’ve realized that as much as I’m here to do the best that I can and hopefully win, what’s most important is that I’ve gained a lot of confidence and I’ve grown so much as a person on this journey.

My DWTS experience has really empowered me to speak out and be vocal against bullying. It’s given me a good, new purpose in life.

More at People. Here’s a cute finale promo from People as well…

People Magazine Dancing With The Stars Season 22 Finale Teasers, Update On Ginger Zee

The People Magazine twitter account has been tweeting some teasers from “behind the scenes” of Dancing With The Stars. You can see them below. Be watching their twitter as they may post more. You can also see more with Ginger at People (online). She’s nervous, but ready to go tonight despite her injury.

“It’s finals day at Dancing with the Stars – so excited to be here,” Zee said in a video Monday shot exclusively for PEOPLE’s Twitter account. “I can’t believe it. I’m so grateful. But I’m also feeling a lot of nerves, of course. Just got my makeup done. We get that done super early and then they just touch it up throughout the day. I’m walking over to my trailer. I’ve gotta go see the physical therapist, get my hair done, and then we’ll have the first run-through.”

DWTS Paige VanZant Lands Role In “Kickboxer: Retaliation”

Give it up for Paige VanVant! After Dancing With The Stars, she will be heading to the big screen. Deadline reports she will be starring in “Kickboxer: Retaliation”.

Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Paige VanZant is heading out of the cage and onto the big screen for her feature debut. The UFC’s eighth-ranked Women’s Strawweight fighter and current Dancing With The Stars finalist contestant will be joining Kickboxer: Retaliation.

In the latest pic in the 1989 Jean-Claude Van Damme-originated Kickboxer franchise, VanZant will play Gamon, a 26-year-old with high-level fighting and shooting skills with some strong criminal connections too. The role was specifically written for VanZant after producers saw her on the ABC dancing competition show this season. “Paige is the up-and-coming darling of the UFC and her star quality shines through on camera,” producer Rob Hickman of Our House Films said in a statement. “She’s a tremendous asset to the film both as an onscreen talent and as a trainer fighter.”
