Also, if you haven’t read Miss Heidi’s new “Dancing By The Numbers” post, it’s a fascinating read as always too. Dona and I weighed in with our Numerology and Astrology predictions over the weekend as well in case you haven’t read them.
Also, check out a new interview with Peta Murgatroyd at TV Guide. She weighs in on all the Finalists including herself and Nyle. Below is a take, but be sure to read the link for entire break down.
He’s the people’s favorite. He’s a beautiful dancer and, of course, the level of difficulty in his stellar performances are intensified by the fact that he cannot hear any music. No one’s given him a pass though; in fact, he’s been dinged for uneven performances, typically due to overconfidence. His special circumstances have given him only two advantages: with fans, including a hearing impaired community who shows up both in the studio and when it’s time to vote, and secondly, his impressive tricks, like silencing the music or, as they did last week, putting him in a blindfold.
“We have something so extraordinary,” Murgatroyd says of their finale performance. “We’re going to tell Nyle’s life story though our dance and how much he loves being deaf. He doesn’t want to hear. He wants to stay deaf. He’s 100 percent confident in who he is. Hopefully people see him as a champion.”
So who’ll win? DiMarco. Fans have been mesmerized by him from the get-go; his story of resilience, believing in yourself and succeeding against all odds is the stuff good TV — and America — is made of.
And what about Murgatroyd? If DiMarco wins, it would be Murgatroyd’s second win, after she helped Donald Driver take the top spot in Season 14. How would she celebrate? “A lot of bed rest, a lot of spa days and massages,” she says. “Resting my body. We both have bruises all over… we’ve been rolling on the floor for four hours a day. It’s killing us.” Maybe it’ll be worth it.
For fun, see USA Today. They have a cool feature on the best dances of the season.
