Dancing with the Stars: Erin Andrews Ties Nicole Scherzinger, But Who Will Voters Choose?

by at . Comments

Might Erin Andrews pull off an incredible Dancing with the Stars upset?

In our finals preview yesterday, we listed her as a long shot against favorite Nicole Scherzinger and dark horse Evan Lysacek, each of whom are more skilled.

Somebody either forgot to tell Erin she was the underdog heading into last night's final performances, or did tell her and provided her bulletin board material.

Erin Andrews tied Nicole with an aggregate 55, meaning it really will come down to every last vote. Can she muster enough support to win the Mirror Ball?

Teaming with Maksim Chmerkovskiy on a Samba to kick off the night, Erin scored a 29. Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya got a 28 on the Viennese Waltz.

Nicole and Derek Hough's Rumba netted a 28. In the freestyle round, Nicole made up one point on Erin, tying for the overall lead. Evan faltered somewhat.

Erin Andrews mauls Maksim Chmerkovskiy in bed. Art imitating life?

If Scherzinger still has a slight edge, it's because she and Derek went for the toughest moves, almost resulting in Nicole falling off his shoulders at one point.

Erin and Maks, meanwhile, chose to do a lyrical freestyle, which seemed So You Think You Can Dance-esque with props and unadulterated sexual chemistry.

So can Erin actually pull off the upset on tonight's results show - when Kate Gosselin returns, Vienna Girardi debuts and the season winner is unveiled at last?

She earned consideration at the very least. Nicole will likely get the title and it will be well-earned, but she won't run away with it. Last night's full scorecard:

  • Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Samba: 29. Freestyle: 26. Total: 55.
  • Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough: Rumba: 28. Freestyle: 27. Total: 55.
  • Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya: Waltz: 28. Freestyle: 24. Total: 52.

Who do you want to win Dancing with the Stars?


Erin and Maks should of won!! ERIN was the one who showed most growth and came the farthest...she was the one I looked forward to watching dance all week her and Maks were amazing together!! Nicole shoud NOT have been on this show she had an advantage over everyone being a professional dancer..how did she even get on this show..so unfair!!!


I think Erin and Max should have won, Nicole and Evan are polished performers who understand dancing moves, but Carrie seems to forget that the concept of the show should be most improved not already a perfessonal at dancing whether it is on ice or as a Pussycat dolls Really do think ERIN did win


wtf u fuking mpororororon


Ann,I'm sorry I think you may be watching the wrong show,you may want to consider,Scoobie-Doo or something like that. Carrie Ann is struggling to contain her bias for Nicole,with not much sucess,I'm afraid. Maks has been choreograghing for about a million years now in many different venues,so I think he may have that down..didn't Dereck bring people in to help Shannon Elizabeth,when she was his partner? If he did he shouldn't have done that...but wait,I think almost every one of the pro's may have done that at one time or another,they should all be severely reprimanded! Erin and Maks are a joy to watch,they have my votes! luv'm


I don't think Maksim's bedroom dance was necessary he should save it for the bedroom!!! After all children do watch this show!!! I thought Evan and Anna were a whole lot better then Maksim and Erin. I think Maksim and Erin should be the ones eliminated because Maksim doesn't seem to be able to follow the rules!!!All he does is take his shirt off as though we are suppose to be impressed!!! And did you hear Carrie Ann slip with her comment to him that his dances usually are to make him look good (not his partiner) gee we could have guessed that one!!! I do think Nicole and Derrick will probably win but I would like to see Evan and Anna win it!!!

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
