Dancing With the Stars Recap: A Fantastic Finals

by at . Comments
Heading into Monday's performance finale on Season 14 of Dancing With the Stars, it was anybody's game. Heading into the final results show, it still is!
Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd

The most evenly-matched final three in history lived up to that billing, finishing within a single point of each other after six great routines.

Let's revisit them all, shall we?

Head judge Len Goodman said that William Levy's show-opening cha-cha was as good as any he has seen in 14 seasons. He got a 30 for it.

There was no less love for Katherine Jenkins' paso doble, which Len said was "full of tasty tidbits to tickle your taste buds." Crickets. 30.

Donald Driver fell short - by a single point - in merely scraping together 10s from Bruno and Carrie Ann Inaba for his Argentine tango.

In the lift-happy freestyle round, William and Cheryl Burke's tango / samba / salsa whatever earned them a 29 for a total of 59 Monday.

Mark Ballas hit the jackpot with the swing routine he crafted for Katherine, sweeping her (and the judges) off their feet for another 30.

Peta Murgatroyd literally bled for her freestyle. She got knocked in the face by her beefy partner during rehearsal, but rallied for a 29.

The scores after Monday's performance finale, which will account for half the overall scores this evening along with America's votes:

  • Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas (30, 30): 60
  • William Levy & Cheryl Burke (30, 29): 59
  • Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd (29, 30): 59

Yup. Basically, it's all your votes to decide this one.

Who should win Dancing With the Stars?
