Dancing With the Stars Results Shocker: Who Made the Finals?

by at . Comments

After Monday left Katherine Jenkins in a world of hurt - physically and mentally - many assumed this Dancing With the Stars results show would be her last.

Not the case!

She needed both a doctor's attention and Mark Ballas' reassurances following her misstep and injury, but Jenkins survived despite her last-place finish.

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough

That sounds worse than it was - the judges barely criticized her, and her last-place score was just three points out of the lead - but it was still a surprise.

"It's something I'll just power through," the Welsh opera singer said of her back injury. "And actually, jumping up and down now I think I hit it again."

"I was so excited I just forgot about it."

Those celebration injuries can be rough. Who will join her to vie for the title? And which frontrunner was sent home with a disappointing fourth-place finish?

Find out after the jump ...

Joining Jenkins in the finals will be William Levy, whose sexy looks and smooth moves have him winning votes in his sleep, along with NFL star Donald Driver.

That means Maria Menounos, despite a first-place score of 59 (!) and despite three-time winner Derek Hough as a partner, will be watching from the sidelines.

"I learned so many things," the Extra host said afterward, exiting with the class you'd expect. "I learned how strong I was. I learned to persevere."

"It's been an amazing season," Derek added. "And I've loved, loved dancing with this woman... She's not just a champion of dancing, but a champion of life."

But it's Donald, William and Katherine who will be free-styling for the Mirror Ball next week! Did Maria deserve to go? And who do you think will win it all?

so beautiful pic


I have been a watcher of your programe for many years... very disappointed how Derek was eliminated. Somehow the viewers never get to see the results of the voted in votes. Maxs and Tony never seem to please the judges enough to get the recognition they deserve. Now Derek again the last straw for not winning. It was a shoein according to the judges comments and partiality shown during the last shows.Very upset and will never again watch your show whicn is not judged fairly. I am not the only one that feels this way. You have lost many watchers and it is YOUR FAULT ENTIRELY. My email is lrck38@aol.com if you even care to reply.


I agree.it is time these judges were gone.CarrieAnn pits on such a show with her theatrics,Len is a real pain and Bruno also too many theatrics.Katherine got the pity vote because of her little act and William is there for the way he wiggles his bum for the ladies.Derek and Maria were definitely the best with Donald a close second. wont be watching it another year.listen up producers and take heed


They should change the name from dancing to popular people people aren`tupid to see who`s the good dancers. plus get rid of len get a judge like bobby bergest on the larry welk`s show


After last season I swore I'd never watch again but...... I do think the judges have their favorites and Carrie Ann loves the guys. William is overrated, Donald is nice but not as good a dancer as Maria, and Katherine is a diva who can really dance. I always like to see the best dancer win and that to me is Katherine. It is a popularity contest and the women love William so he will probably win.


yeah i think katherine was over dramatic if you watch the dance she cant possibly be hurt she just had a misstep. im hoping william win because cheryl have been robbed of the mirror ball a couple of times


Ratings, it's all about ratings.....they had a drop in viewers, BAM!!! add some drama and the ratings go back up!!! Voila!!


I agree that Maria made such a fool out of herself screaming at the to of her lungs & humping all the male dancers after her dance... Ugh. Quite a loud mouth.., & yes Katherine was so upset about missing the "last step," I too think she put on a show to win sympathy. And yes Carrie Ann loves buff, Black, athletes & Yes, all 3 judges hate Max the hot Russian Guy who keeps ticking off everyone! Ha I think Katherine may win... We'll see.


I have seen Will Levy beford, but never knew who he really was until DANCING WITH THE STARS OH MaMa You got to win Linda smith Bronx


HEY, You blind people, can you see that the best dancer is William Levy? now that he is handsome and has a body to die for is something else, have you notice that in this competition all the time Carrie Ann choose a black bald guy for the finals even if they don't know how to dance, Donal dances ok but Maria dances much better than him, a lot of people don't watch this show anymore because of that, these judges suck, it's time to hire new judges and even some previos winners did not deserve to win or be in the finals.


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.
