DWTS19 Carrie Ann Inaba Sizes Up The Competition Going Into The Finale

Well, it’s finally the day we’ve all been waiting for!! Who’s ready for a little dancing? For starters, head to TV Guide as Dancing With The Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba sizes up all of the finalists and describes what it will take to win. It’s very much like her Parade blog last week, but, with more detail.

“This to me is by far the closest competition we have had in a long time,” veteran judge Carrie Ann Inaba tells TVGuide.com. “I’m really interested to see how it’s all going to play out. … At this stage, it could be any of them. It’s going to be great.”

The unpredictability of this season’s finale may be due in part to the show’s polarizing new casting philosophy — tapping contestants like Bethany Mota and Sadie Robertson, who are popular with the younger set, have a huge social media presence, and are influential enough to get fans to watch the show.

“At first on paper, I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t too thrilled [with the cast] because I didn’t know a lot of the names,” Inaba admits, echoing the sentiments of the show’s primary fan base. “Obviously we all know Tommy Chong, we all know Alfonso [Ribeiro]. But other than that, there weren’t that many names that I actually knew. So I was curious. But I was happily surprised. … We’ve brought in a younger demo and I think it has changed up the voting a little. In the past, we had Sabrina Bryan and we had Cody Linley, and they had huge social media followers too, but [the fans] weren’t watching the show. They didn’t vote. This year, these kids have followings that are voting.”

TMZ Reporting Janel Parrish Has Spread Herself Too Thin, Missing DWTS Rehearsals

TMZ is reporting Janel Parrish has been missing rehearsals for Dancing With The Stars this past week and that Val is “freaking out”. Could this ruin her chances at a Mirror ball?

Janel Parrish is pulling double duty on “Pretty Little Liars” AND “Dancing with the Stars” — and TMZ has learned she’s spread herself so thin, she’s alienated castmates on both shows.

DWTS sources tell us … Janel’s pro dance partner, Val Chmerkovskiy is freaking out … because she’s missed two days of critical dance rehearsals due to long days of filming on PLL.

We’re told … Val believes he and Janel have a real shot at winning the trophy — the finals are Monday and Tuesday — but thinks her PLL schedule is sabotaging their chances.

For the full story, see TMZ.

ABC Releases Show Details For Dancing With The Stars Season 19 Two Night Finale

Here ya go. Read carefully. From Broadway World via Abc:

Episode 1911 & 1911A” – After ten weeks of competitive dancing spanning a variety of styles from the Cha Cha to the Quickstep to the Viennese Waltz and more, Alfonso Ribeiro & Witney Carson, Bethany Mota & Derek Hough, Janel Parrish & Valentin Chmerkovskiy and Sadie Robertson & Mark Ballas remain in the competition, but only one couple will be crowned “Dancing with The Stars” Season 19 champion. Will the injured frontrunner Alfonso Ribeiro break the two-and-a-half-year reign of women winning the Mirrorball? Or will Bethany Mota and record five-time winner Derek Hough bring home the trophy? With the four couples all receiving perfect scores from the judges this season, it is anyone’s game. In the two-part finale, all will have one last opportunity to impress the judges and viewers beginning on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 24 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) and concluding with the Season Finale, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 25 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

On MONDAY, NOVEMBER 24 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), the four remaining couples will compete in two exciting rounds of dance. In the first round, each couple will take on the “Judges Pick” and perform a dance they previously performed this season that the judges have selected. In the second round, the couples take on the biggest competitive dance of the season, a Freestyle routine featuring special effects, additional dancers and unexpected surprises. The night continues by celebrating the new, contemporary spin on the classic show “Annie,” coming to movie theaters December 19th. “Annie” stars Oscar®-winner Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz, Rose Byrne, and the youngest performer to ever be nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award®, Quvenzhané Wallis, as Annie. Talented young dancers will join Wallis to perform a dance to “It’s The Hard-Knock Life,” choreographed by Mandy Moore. Then, at the end of night, one couple will be eliminated based on the previous weeks’ viewer votes combined with the judges’ scores from the previous Monday night.

The Season Finale on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 25 kicks off with “Dancing with the Stars: Road to the Finals” (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET). This one-hour special chronicles the journey of the three remaining couples revealing never-before-seen moments, director’s cut-style commentary on their past dances and the judges give their expert opinions on what to expect in the two-hour grand finale. The night continues with the Season Finale on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 25 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET). The show is packed with exciting surprises and kicks off with a high-energy all cast performance featuring a reunion of all 13 of this season’s couples, the judges and hosts. Then, as decided on by a Twitter vote, one of the four finalists will perform their Freestyle dance as an encore. Pop superstar MEGHAN TRAINOR will perform a medley of her catchy hit single “All About That Bass” and newest release “Lips Are Moving.” Additionally, viewers will be treated to encore performances by Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff to “The Way You Look Tonight,” Betsey Johnson and Tony Dovolani to “Material Girl,” Jonathan Bennett and Allison Holker featuring tWitch to “Back In Time,” Antonio Sabato Jr. and Cheryl Burke to “Tonight (I’m Loving You),” Michael Waltrip and Emma Slater to “Born to be Wild,” Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintsev to “Maneater,” and Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd to “Drop It Like It’s Hot.” Additionally, the finale will feature musical performances by NICK JONAS, singing his hit single “Jealous,” and Grammy®-winning artist JENNIFER HUDSON and GORGON CITY, performing “Go All Night.” Then, with less than 24 hours to prepare, the three remaining couples will Fuse two contrasting dance styles that they’ve performed this season into a new routine they’ll perform for judges’ points. At the end of the night, the public vote from Monday night will be combined with the judges’ scores from both nights to crown the Season 19 Champion.
