Dancing With The Stars: Freestyle Dance Finale
The finale is upon us. This season of Dancing With the Stars has had more people cheering and voting than ever. Whether you are on Team Kellie, Team Zendaya, Team Aly, or Team Jacoby, you know just how hard each one of these stars have danced this season.
Last night was the climax of the season. The final four danced three times to show off their skills and why you should vote for them as your star dancer. While each dance was important, the most vital of these was the freestyle.
Jacoby Jones, Raven wide receiver, went with a tap inspired number.
“You got the freestyle party started,” the judges agreed.
Aly Raisman Pole Dance & Kellie Pickler Brings Carrie Ann Inaba to Tears
Next up, Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman raised the bar, or the pole, with an athletic pole dance. She and partner Mark Ballas received a perfect 30 from the judges.
Country sweetheart Kellie Pickler left it all on the dance floor with her contemporary dance. She and partner Derek Hough had Carrie Ann Inaba moved to tears. She said it was one of the most beautiful and emotional dances she had ever seen.
Zendaya was the frontrunner for the night with a hip hop number to Justin Bieber’s “Beauty & A Beat.” She received perfect scores from the judges and was the top scorer for the night. While I believe Zendaya is extremely talented, she is on a Disney Channel show about dancing. I’m not sure how fair it was to put her in the competition.
Chelsie Hightower & Helio Castroneves Vote on Dancing With the Stars Winner
Chelsie Hightower, season five winner Helio Castroneves and GMA’s DWTS blogger Louis Van Amstel weighed in on last night’s dances.
Helio said Zendaya is his favorite, but Kellie Pickler’s emotional dancing had him captivated. He said that the freestyle is, unfortunately, what crowns the winner. Chelsie said Kellie took the freestyle over Aly Raisman, but Raisman’s dance had great wow appeal.
Louis Van Amstel felt that Jacoby was a little tentative with his freestyle dance. Being seven feet tall and moving the way he does still deserves commendation.
Chelsie Hightower voted for Zendaya, while Helio and Louis gave it to Kellie Pickler. We will see who wins May 21 on ABC.
