After 10 long weeks, the robo-diallers have been put away (until 2012), Jennifer has become the six-million dollar woman and Kyle has lost some inches around his waist and gained some fans. We're down to the end.
Last night the couples danced the "redemption dance" and the freestyle. Here are there scores:
Jennifer/Derek - 30 & 30 = 60
Kyle/Lacey - 27 & 29 = 56
Bristol/Mark - 27 & 25 = 52
In a departure from previous seasons all the couples danced twice on the Finale. They performed their favorite dance and an Instant Dance where they will dance the Cha Cha to music revealed to them on the show.
Christina Aguilera performed a song from Burlesque and her hit "Beautiful" (I like that one) and we had the normal troop of season 11 contestants (except Michael Bolton) returning. It was nice to see them.
But back to the competition - for the "favorite" dances the judges scored slightly differently. Each judge had to rank each performance and give 10 to the best, 9 to the second and 8 to the third. Jennifer & Derek got 30, Kyle & Lacey 26 and Bristol & Mark 25. This gave the following totals:
Jennifer/Derek - 90
Kyle/Lacey - 82
Bristol/Mark - 77
We then had the Instant Dance. The Cha Cha to a Pink song. 28 was scored by Jennifer AND Kyle, 27 for Bristol.
This gave Jennifer 118, Kyle 110 and Bristol 104.
The champions were... Jennifer and Derek (no real surprise)
Second were Kyle and Lacey
The third placed couple was Bristol and Mark
Congratulations to the champions!
