We started the season with twelve couples as part of the Dancing with the Stars 2013 cast and now we are down to the final four couples on DWTS Season 16 and they will perform for your votes tonight in hopes of winning the Mirro Ball Trophy tomorrow night! The couples remaining are Kellie Pickler & Derek Hough, Aly Raisman & Mark Ballas, Jacoby Jones & Karina Smirnoff and Zendaya Coleman & Val Chmerkovskiy. One will be announced the winner of DWTS 2013 tomorrow night, but first they must perform. Watch with us during our Dancing with the Stars 2013 Recap!

Dancing with the Stars 2013 - Kellie and Derek

With everything on the line tonight, the four couples will each be performing three routines: a selection picked for them by the DWTS judges, a Cha Cha Cha Relay Dance and a Freestyle routine.


The judges are picking a dance style that the couple may need a little work on from earlier in the season, but they can use new music and new choreography. The Cha Cha Cha Relay will have all four couples each performing different sections of a routine during the same song! The real performance of the night tonight on Dancing with the Stars 2013 will be the freestyle routine. Balls to the wall and they can do anything they want with no rules assigned to them! They are always amazing routines, so watch with us in our recap starting soon!

WARNING: DANCING WITH THE STARS 2013 SPOILERS AHEAD!

The following post contains videos from tonight’s performances on DWTS 2013 Finale. Don’t want to see them yet then don’t look ahead!!!

*************************************************************

Here we go…another performance from the troupe dancers to start the night! It is the finals on DWTS Season 16. Are you all ready? Val was hurt in rehearsals right before the show started and he is all stitched up and it was bloody! Will he be good to dance though? He is going to dance, but who knows.

First Round Performances – Judges’ Choice

Team: Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff
Dance: Jive

Len Goodman comes in to help Jacoby to work on his footwork, so he can maybe get that 10 from Len! I like to see Jacoby doing these styles of dance. He just bounces around the dance floor and they always put some tricks in there. He is doing the splits and kicking those feet big time. I am a fan! And they end shaking it on the judges’ table!
9.0 – Bruno said there is always an unlimited amount of energy.
9.0 – Len said he saw improvement and they did great.
9.0 – Carrie Ann said the feet were sharper and crisper, but they were flat.
Score: 27.0/30.0

Team: Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas
Dance: Samba

Bruno comes in and works them and wants them to put in a Samba roll, which Mark said pros stay away from that step. He thinks Aly can win this. Aly has been sneaking up my leaderboard every week and this helped her case. She has been more and more fun to watch and letting her walls down and she could win this thing.
10.0 – Bruno said you scrumptious little tease you!
9.0 – Len said he saw a lot of improvement and she is on the rise.
9.0 – Carrie Ann said she has a little bit of everything that all the other finalists have and she saw improvement.
Score: 28.0/30.0

Team: Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough
Dance: Quickstep

They got a 29/30 on their first Quickstep because Carrie Ann saw some space there, so can they fix it this time? I thought their first time doing this routine was perfect and I will say it again. She moves so easily around the dance floor and this was a great routine!
10.0 – Bruno said she is the Southern Belle and they were glued together.
10.0 – Len said that was excitement.
10.0 – Carrie Ann said she was looking for an improvement in their body contact and she saw it.
Score: 30.0/30.0

Team: Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy
Dance: Samba

Carrie Ann comes in and wanted to see more technique and a mixture of Zendaya in there. Zendaya has not been wearing heels for her routines, but they are bringing them back here! I could see her struggling at time while on the heels, but it was still a good routine. She has confidence on the floor and that is good, especially for her age!
10.0 – Bruno said she is incredibly fierce.
10.0 – Len said we have only scartached the surface of her talent.
10.0 – Carrie Ann said that was a perfect combination and she was in there.
Score: 30.0/30.0

Second Round Performance – Cha-Cha Relay

So, every couple will dance 40 seconds each. The couples will be ranked after they perform and first gets five points, second gets four, third get three points and fourth gets two points. Kellie and Derek get it started and they are such a good couple. I love them! Jacoby jumps over them to start for him and Karina. They do a decent job. Aly and Mark are shining in my eyes and I am a big fan of them now. Zendaya and Val are their normal greatness and end it strong.
Bruno said the magnificent four and it is incredible to see.
Len said this is the four that deserved to make it into the finals and they are all winners.
Carrie Ann said they are all here for different reasons and they are all so diverse. she was in there.
Score: Fourth (2 points) – Jacoby and Karina; Third (3 points) – Aly and Mark; Second (4 points) – Kellie and Derek; First (5 points) – Zendaya and Val

Third Round Performances – Freestyle Performances

Team: Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff
Karina wants to bring his hometown to the dancefloor, so it is going to be a big New Orleans party out there! This is going to be huge! They have some tap dancers coming in and Jacoby is struggling learning everything. I loved it, but I am going to say that about all the freestyles. It was fun and upbeat and full of tricks.
9.0 – Bruno said he loves the sense of celebration. The energy made him lose the sync, but it was a joyful experience.
9.0 – Len said he got the freestyle party started. Great energy and well done.
9.0 – Carrie Ann said it was unique and they chose the right strategy for him, but it outshined him and he got lost in the shuffle.
Score: 27.0/30.0, so a total for the night of 56 for the night

Team: Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas
Mark wants to do stuff that they have never done on the show. Since Aly does gymnastics and does the vertical bars, but wants to make it horizontal. That is just a stripper pole, Mark! They go check things out on the stage and Mark is freaking out with how tall it is! This was just Mark and Aly, the poles and the crazy lights and I loved it. They did awesome and Aly worked the pole. She was incredible.
10.0 – Bruno said that was futuristic with a touch of exotic.
10.0 – Len said it had a great imagination and he is dubbing her Alexandra the Great.
10.0 – Carrie Ann said that was so much fun and she worked a pole in the past and that was one of the most amazing routines she has seen in the finale for freestyle.
Score: 30.0/30.0, so a total for the night of 61!!!

Team: Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough
Derek is being indecisive with what they will do for the freestyle on Dancing with the Stars 2013. He has decided to strip it down, but making the dancing more difficult. They are going to try and sell this dance by the power of the dance and Kellie said it could fall apart. The other routines were amazing, but this was brilliant. This made me forget that Kellie is not a professional dance. This was contemporary all the way and I absolutely loved it…beyond perfection!
10.0 – Bruno said they did a dance of spell-binding beauty and it touched everybody.
10.0 – Len said they drew everyone into that performance and a standing ovation from Len!
10.0 – Carrie Ann is, of course, crying and gives her a hug. She said Kellie bared her soul on the dance floor and one of the most beautiful things she has seen.
Score: 30.0/30.0, so a total of 64 for the night

Team: Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy
The dance is to inspire kids, so Val brings in some kids to dance with them. This routine was nothing special. It was pretty boring compared to the other couples and could anyone really follow what Kellie and Derek just did???
10.0 – Bruno said Zendaya the teen idol is here to inspire. She always shines through it.
10.0 – Len said it was right in sync and there were so many parts to that number, but it all came together.
10.0 – Carrie Ann said she brought it home and sealed the deal.
Score: 30.0/30.0, so a total of 65 for the night
