Dancing With the Stars Season 18: Who Will Win the Mirror Ball?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Dancing with the Stars is down to its final five in Season 18. What this spring has lacked in star power, it's made up for in consistency and talent.

All five remaining celebs have a shot to win, from fan favorite Candace Cameron Bure (below) to double amputee Amy Purdy, perhaps the top contender.

Meryl Davis seeks to give Maksim Chmerkovskiy his first title, while Charlie White and James Maslow are representing the male faction and strongly.

But there can be only one champion. The question is, who will that be?!

The full scoreboard prior to this week's Dancing with the Stars results ...

  1. Amy Purdy & Derek Hough: 10, 10, 10, 10 = 40 + 39 = 79
  2. Charlie White & Sharna Burgess: 10, 10, 10, 10 = 40 + 38 = 78
  3. James Maslow & Peta Murgatroyd: 8, 9, 10, 9 = 36 + 39 = 75
  4. Candace Cameron Bure & Mark Ballas: 9, 9, 9, 9 = 36 + 38 = 74
  5. Danica McKellar & Val Chmerkovskiy: 10, 9, 9, 10 = 38 + 34 = 72 (ELIMINATED)
  6. Meryl Davis & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 9, 9, 8, 10 = 36 + 34 = 70

As you can see, it's a tight race. Last-place finishers Meryl and Maks led the pack the previous two weeks, so anything can happen in the final two episodes.

I hope Meryl and Mack's win. Mack's deserves to win after all his seasons and if not it will be because Amy got the pity votes. Whitch she won't deserve.

Maks and Meryl is the best pairing I have seen in DWTS since season 1. and I have watched this show since it started. don't make us look like a fool believing that a bronze medalist is better than a gold medalist. this is a dancing contest not a cry baby contest.

Absolutely Meryl and Maks !!!!
When they dance, they dance with souls ...
Just look at the rest ... They try to have the chemistry but all fail.. Just look at them, the pros are fabulous but the stars ... They cannot match the way Maks and Meryl have their chemistry when they dance ...
So I hope you all vote for Meryl and Maks and let's not repeat from the past when the wrong couple ended up wining the Mirror Ball trophy !

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.
