Dancing with the Stars Season 21 THE FINALE Night One – LIVE BLOG (Spoilers)

Okay all – this is it. The end of another season. Don’t know what’s going to happen, but I hope the dancing is good. :-)

Because it’s the finale, it’s really important you remember the rule below:

NOTE: DO NOT POST ONE LINER COMMENTS AND CONTINUALLY REFRESH THE PAGE!! It’s the finale – breaking the rules might get you temporarily banned. The traffic is too high for this. Please walk away from the computer for a few minutes after commenting so others have a chance without the site shutting down. Thx.

I’m going to leave comment moderation turned off for now. Behave. :-)

T-minus 30 minutes…

Here we go…our male pros wearing far more clothing than most of them are used to. :-)

Carlos foxtrot started out looking like an AT or something, with the walk, the pose, the colors. Wonder if it counts as a lift if she has her hand on the floor but not her feet….

Sexiest foxtrot?? Really, it was a decent dance, but it seems un-foxtrot like – they got hosed by the song.

Alek’s arms are still weird, but he has improved tremendously. Huge lift right in the middle of the dance. Wonder if their coach will call it. Also of note – CAI’s attitude when she was with them was very down.

Heard on All Access – ALEXA is going to be in Carlos’ freestyle. Derek and Bindi are non-stop practicing backstage.

Beautiful flashback to the DWTS of old – Meghan Trainor singing while Peta and Artem dance. Gorgeous.

This Jive from Nick is going in and out. In sync, then out of sync, clean, then messy. If he gets a perfect score for this I call foul.

Yeahhhhh…..guess I can see better on TV. Definitely better than some he’s done, but not perfect.

Come on, Bindi!! Holy crap…I don’t think I breathed during that whole dance. I never would have lasted – unbelievable.

Well, I had a lot more written but I lost it because I can’t update the site because people are refreshing too much.

I will just say that I didn’t really care for either Carlos or Alek’s freestyles, although I liked Alek’s better. Me not liking it could be in large part to being pissed I couldn’t get on the site. Witney borrowed a bit heavily from MOVE Live on Tour, with the lights and the formation at the beginning of hers. And I tended to lose Alek and Lindsay in parts of their dance.

And they change the order. Bindi just got seriously hosed. I’mma be pissed. There better be a damn good reason.

Bindi and Derek slayed that. I’m all weepy now, thanks. Derek putting that photo up there without telling Bindi. Wow.

Er…that’s it?? I mean, it was good, but it was just like a dance he did earlier in the season and totally expected. :::sigh:::

Notice in that last shot the only person with their hands not on the MBT?? Bindi and Derek.

First Safe is Alek…

Then Bindi….

And (as predicted) Carlos and Witney were eliminated.

ETA: Because I’m not sure where else to put this, here are the three dances for the 24-hour Dance Challenge.  -Court-

Nick & Sharna – Tango/Salsa
Bindi & Derek – Argentine tango/Cha-Cha
Alek & Lindsay – Tango/? (source only knew that each fusion had tango in it)

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. :-)

Who’s going to Win DWTS Season 21? New Poll and Discussion Post

Not only who’s going to win, but in what order are they going to finish?? You’ve seen the numbers going into Monday night, and you’ve seen the numerology/astrology. Now, it’s time to share who you think is going to take home the shiny disco ball.

I’m torn, as always, when it comes to picking a winner. EVERY metric that I usually use to decide who’s going to win a given season (and our record is pretty good here, I must say) is telling me that Bindi is going to win. But, by the same token, I can’t get past two things – she’s up against a Backstreet Boy and a National Guard vet/hero AND she has Derek for a partner. The latter is a problem because he’s won five times AND I have to wonder if his fans have gotten complacent. More often than not, this inner struggle I have to decide is when I’m least accurate because I tend to go with the more conservative approach (for me) and say that, despite everything telling me it’s true, that Derek’s partner won’t win. This season, I’m going to break that habit, go out on a limb, and say that Bindi is going to win this thing. Eeep. I hope I didn’t jinx it. I think Alek will be second, Nick third and Carlos fourth. I may revise this when I do the final numbers post of the season on Monday night. Read more..

Carrie Anne Inaba Discusses The Strengths And Weaknesses Of Each DWTS Finalist

Carrie Anne Inaba talked with TV Guide about the strengths and weaknesses of each finalist on Dancing With The Stars. To see how she weighed on each of them, see this link. Below is a small take from the link….

“I think it’s going to be a very, very close run,” Inaba tells TVGuide.com. “I hear Bindi’s name come up a lot when people are talking about who they think is going to win. And yes, she’s got this incredible personality and she’s done consistently well. But … not to bring her down at all, because she’s absolutely incredible, but when you’re that good every time, the level of expectation is very, very high. And I think she’s shown us so many incredible sides of herself, I wonder what she’s going to show us for the finale. Because you could be great all season, but if you don’t win that night, you don’t win.”

Any of the other three finalists – Nick Carter, Carlos PenaVega and Alek Skarlatos – could give the young Aussie a run for her money, Inaba says.

“Bindi’s been strong and she’s been the leader horse out in the front, but I feel like these other guys, the three men, are right on her tail,” Inaba says. “And [among] the three of them, I feel like it’s a neck-and-neck run. Maybe Nick is just a hair ahead of the other guys, but who knows? Because they’re all on this incredible growth trajectory.”

One thing Inaba can guarantee is that the pros will be going for jaw-dropping moments – which could either be amazing or totally backfire. “I’m hoping that they will make creative choices that are great,” she says. “Sometimes the pros get ambitious and they want to go for the fan vote, and you’ve got to be careful. I think this year, because it is so tight scoring-wise, everybody’s really close to each other, I think they’re going to take some risks. And I just hope that they’re risks that will pay off for them. Carlos’ risk last week, I didn’t care for it. I thought that it was distracting to the dance.”

The two-part finale will see the finalists performing a number of routines, one of which will be a redo of a dance they’ve already performed, chosen by the judges. (“That’s my favorite part of the season, when we get to go into the studio and work with them a little and interact with the contestants, because we have such limited interaction with them throughout the season,” Inaba admits. “It was fun to get to know them up close.”) Also, for the first time, the finale will include a live segment broadcast from The Grove.

Dancing With The Stars Season 21 Finale Info, Performers, And More

From Disney ABC, below is some Dancing With The Stars Season 21 Finale info….

Four Couples Remain on the Two-Part Finale of “Dancing with the Stars” (11/23 and 11/24) SEASON FINALE

FOUR COUPLES REMAIN, BUT ONLY ONE CAN TAKE HOME THE MIRRORBALL TROPHY ON THE TWO-PART FINALE OF “DANCING WITH THE STARS”

Musical Performers Include Ariana Grande, Meghan Trainor, Nick Carter, Andy Grammer and More

The Season 21 Champion Will Be Declared on Tuesday, November 24

“Episode 2111 & 211A” – After weeks of competitive dancing, the final four couples advance to the FINALS of “Dancing with the Stars” this MONDAY, NOVEMBER 23 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET). Alek Skarlatos and Lindsay Arnold, Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough, Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson, and Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess have one last night of competitive dancing, fighting to win the judges’ and America’s votes to be crowned the “Dancing with the Stars” champion on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

On Monday, November 23 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), the finalists will compete in two rounds of dance. In the first round, one judge will help each couple choose the creative elements of each dance, which is a re-do to a new song. Carrie Ann Inaba will work alongside Lindsay and Alek, as well as Bindi and Derek. Julianne Hough is with Nick and Sharna, and Bruno Tonioli is with Carlos and Witney. In the second round, in one of the biggest competitive dances of the season, the couples take on a freestyle dance featuring special effects, additional dancers and unexpected surprises. There will be special performances from Meghan Trainor, singing “Like I’m Gonna Lose You,” and Who Is Fancy, Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor performing “Boys Like You.” At the end of the night, the couple with the lowest combined viewer and judge votes from the previous two weeks will be eliminated.

In the two-hour season finale on Tuesday, November 24 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), the three finalists advance to the final stage of the competition. There will be live dancing and show-stopping performances at the Grove shopping center and in the DWTS ballroom. The night kicks off with a high-energy opening number, featuring a reunion of all 13 of this season’s couples at the Grove. The finale will be filled with performances from Alexander Jean, Andy Grammer, Chaka Khan, Elle King and Nick Carter. Kim Zolciak returns to the ballroom to dance a Samba with Tony Dovolani to “I Dream of Jeannie,” which she was never able to perform, along with encore dances from the eliminated celebrities. The cast of the upcoming “Dancing with the Stars: Live! Dance All Night Tour” will perform a dance to Avicii’s “Broken Arrows” as a sneak peak of the 90-minute show traveling the country this winter. The three finalists will each dance a repeat dance from this season. In the last element of competition, the couples will perform a new routine as part of a “24-Hour Fusion Challenge.” The remaining couples will fuse two contrasting dance styles that they’ve performed this season and they’ll have less than 24 hours to prepare that dance for judges’ points. At the end of the night, the winner of the coveted Mirrorball trophy will be announced!
