Dancing With the Stars Results: Who Made the Finals?

by at . Comments

After perfect and near-perfect performances saw Ricki Lake take back the lead on Dancing With the Stars, the question was who would join her in the finals.

With Ricki a virtual lock (her scores far outpaced two competitors, she's solid every week, and she has Derek Hough as a partner), it came down to this trio.

Surprisingly, Rob Kardashian was the one breathing down Ricki's next Monday, with J.R. Martinez a distant third, followed by Hope Solo in last place.

Was last night the end of the line for Rob, Hope, or J.R.?

Hope has continued to improve, but would it be fast enough for fans given that Rob has also surged in popularity and skill, and J.R. remains one of the favorites?

The program has seen many worthy dancers set home prematurely, even this season. You just never know. So which one of these contenders got the heave-ho?

Follow the jump to see who survived the Dancing With the Stars semifinals ...

Hope Solo, despite a long and successful run, was eliminated last night.

Very few who follow the show are likely to be surprised at that outcome.

Interestingly, Hope was so torn up about her elimination that she was unable to even give interviews about departure, but we'll miss her and wish her the best.

Fond memories of Hope and Maks' DWTS performances past.

"I love them," Ricki Lake said of Hope and her partner Maksim Chermovskiy. "They're both great people. I think she did great. She came so far and I now like soccer. I never knew anything about it, but now I'm rooting for my goalie Hope Solo!"

She's certainly not alone in that department.

"I never would have imagined this when I signed up for this, never in a million years," Rob Kardashian admitted upon making the finals. "I really just gotta bring it more than ever and that mirror ball trophy is right at the end of my fingertips."

As for J.R.'s injury: "The ankle feels a lot better, does," he said. "I got some time to rest. I got an X-ray done this morning. The doctor said it's negative. Now, it's about being strategic: making sure I take care of, wrap it properly and continue to dance!"

Well? Who will win Dancing With the Stars?


i m so glad the final round
i do not went rob n cherly not 2 win tomorrow n rickki n derrek not 2 win at all
i would 2 jr n katrian 2 finial round winning for tomorrow night
thank u
omg finial round a good people


Ricki will win she is great at her age and if you are not on the dance floor you need to be quiet. The girl is good and Derick gives her what she needs. Go Ricikkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk great dancing your partner is handsome and got what you need


I love hope and max even though len dosnt like max it dosent meen he has to give them BAD SCORES Iconsiter a new judge i think it was very sad to see them go the story about hope was very sad too hope do good in your next soccer game i willbe rutting for u


i'm glad, Hope the mope is gone! i'm glad she made it to the final 4 but hasta la vista, baby! My personal fave is Rob Kardashian. Ricki 2nd , J.R. Martinez 3rd!


Ricki looked like Big Bird with fat legs in that hideous outfit Monday night. Derek only makes her look good; she can't hold a candle to J. R., in personality or talent.


I was so sorry to see Hope and Max go. Hope is so much better than Kardashian, but what can you do when the judges obviously dislike you. I think Hope and Max were a breath of fresh air and I think maybe it's time to reconsider hireing some impartial judges. Go J.R.


Though I love Rikki Lake and Derrik. I believe J.R. Martinez should win. First he is great second let Karina have a win,she is so talented and Derrik has won so many times. Also look what this guy can do. He fought for our country, took on unknown territory with acting and dancing. Rikki already had landed a gig dancing in hair spray. Give it to JR


First i want to say i love dancing with the stars!! :) Ricky Lake is Great love her she has a great attitude she is deter determend.I think she dances beautiful and deserves to win.


I think if Ricki wins its going to be bcuz people adore Derek and not really pay attention to her! I think she's doing fabulous and she WILL win, I'm just nervous it's going to be for the wrong reasons! I was originally voting for Carson, but ...Ricki is next!


I believe Jr to be the most entertaining of all the dancers and what his life says to the world is awesome...go J.R. and thank-you for what you did for us all. the price tag for you was so very high....


Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

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.
