  • Dance until you drop!

    The final three took to the fall twice in the eve before the finale where the winner gets to take home a trophy with the huge ball. The highlight of the evening again falls on Marie as she dresses up as a doll and dances rather in a dull way. I didn't like the dance and I glad that the judges gave it a score lower than a 10. It could have gone lower. that's my opinion. On tuesday, I tune in for the finale for a few minutes before I turn off the set and went to bed. I'll know wh won "Dancing with the Stars" before lunchtime.moreless
  • OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This was the most terrible final I've ever seen. The judges choices sucked for one. I don't understand why you would want to see the worst dances that the stars attempted to do twice. I mean, sometimes, it's just not their dance. I was very disappointed that the free-style wasn't better. I mean, Mel B could have done so much better. She wasn't awful by any means, so no offense, I just know she was capable at bringing more to table than what she did. She is my pick to win but after tonight I think it just might be Helio. Not that he is Marie but I believe that Mel B can truly outdance him. Marie....give me a break. She shouldn't even be in the final. I wouldn't have picked Jenny to win either but come on. She was ten times better than Marie. If Marie wins this I don't think too many ppl will tune in next season. It would be a joke. Her free-style was scary to me. I didn't like it at all. She is a great performer and entertainer. But this isn't entertaining with the stars now is it. If it was, she would have my vote, but this is about dancing. She isn't the one. All in all, not a good way to end such a competitive season.moreless

    • Bruno Tonioli: (To Marie Osmond about her appearance for her freestyle dance) It's Baby Jane meets bride of chucky.

    • (Some of the judges comments to Marie Osmond after her Samba)
      Bruno Tonioli: You never fail to entertain. Technically, it wasn't your best dance.
      Carrie Ann Inaba: Your range of motion is a little bit more limited, and it kind of showed itself in this dance.
      Len Goodman: Technically, you're not the best of our finalists. But for entertainment and fun, second to none.

    • (Some of the judges comments to Helio Castroneves after his Jive)
      Bruno Tonioli: The footwork wasn't good enough, but the performance was great.
      Carrie Ann Inaba: It was completely exciting. But your flicks and kicks are still a bit awkward.
      Len Goodman: You come out high octane...but unfortunately, so many technical problems with that. It was a disappointment.

    • (Some of the judges comments to Melanie Brown after her freestyle dance)
      Bruno Tonioli: You put in something we don't usually see. You tried, and I think you did a good job.
      Carrie Ann Inaba: While I enjoyed the routine, I think you're better than that, and I don't think it showcased all that you did the past couple of months.
      Len Goodman: For me it was just slightly disjointed here and there. But great job.

    • (Some of the judges comments to Marie Osmond after her freestyle dance)
      Bruno Tonioli: This is the loopiest thing I've ever seen. It defies criticism. It's not a dance
      Carrie Ann Inaba: You are a risk taker. However, I'm gonna agree with the guys. Sometimes...we just make some odd choices.
