Talk about peaking at the right time.

Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke have been improving for weeks and have built up a nice Dancing With the Stars following, but Monday night - the final night of performances this season - marked the first time they finished atop the leaderboard.

Rob's waltz earned him a 9 out of 10 from each judge. His second routine, the freestyle, earned him all 10s and sole possession of the lead. Will that be enough to win him the prestigious Mirror Ball, or will J.R. Martinez or Ricki Lake overtake him?

Watch Rob's final two performances and vote in our poll below:

J.R. Martinez made his case for the Mirror Ball on the final night of performances on Dancing With the Stars. But will America deliver it for him this evening?

After suffering an injury last week, but the 28-year-old Iraq War vet, soap opera star and motivational speaker gave it his all in the cha cha and the freestyle.

The judges weren't in agreement on his first dance with partner Karina Smirnoff. The duo earned a 7 from Len, and 8 from Carrie Ann and a 9 from Bruno.

One thing the judges could agree on, however, was Martinez's freestyle. He earned a perfect 30, leaving him a tie for second with Ricki Lake for the night.

Whether J.R. or Ricki can overtake surprise frontrunner Rob Kardashian all depends on voter turnout. Watch J.R.'s final two dances of the season below ...

Ricki Lake was very good Monday night on Dancing With the Stars.

The question is, will very good be enough against the two men she's competing against? Ricki and Derek Hough earned all 9s for their cha cha and all 9s for their freestyle, for a combined total of 54. "We're very, very happy," she said. "I'm thrilled!"

Fan favorite J.R. Martinez has 54 as well, though, and upstart Rob Kardashian garnered 57. So it'll take quite the popular vote victory to propel Ricki to the Mirror Ball. Will it happen? Check out her routines below and vote on who you think will win:

The 13th season of Dancing With the Stars has come down to one night.

Ricki Lake. Rob Kardashian. J.R. Martinez. All worthy parquet performers, as we know, but there can be only one Mirror Ball holder at the end of this. Who will it be?

Apparently no one told Rob that J.R. and Ricki were the consensus picks all season long, or that he was a 4-1 underdog headed into the final Monday of the season.

Because he's in sole possession of the lead right now!

Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke

His lead is only three points over both competitors, so this is going down to the wire. But who thought Rob Kardashian would be here now, let alone in first place?

Seriously, if you've watched this season at all, you knew he was good, maybe even a dark horse contender. But few saw him ever sitting on top of the world.

Rob and Cheryl Burke earned a perfect 30, their first of the fall, with a retro, Charleston-utilizing freestyle. When he said it was his time to peak, he meant it!

"This competition is often won or lost in the freestyle round and to get a 10 you have to blow us away. Consider me blown!" raved DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba.

J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff earned a 30 of their own with an '80s hip-hop / samba mash-up that made you wanna get down. But their first dance hurt them.

The last two weeks of Dancing With the Stars haven't surprised us. Nancy Grace lasted longer than people expected, and Hope Solo couldn't hang with the top three.

Going into the finals, it really is anyone's game. J.R. Martinez, Rob Kardashian and Ricki Lake all deserve to be there, and have decent shots at the Mirror Ball.

Who's technically the biggest favorite, though?

DWTS Final THREE

According to Bodog, an online gambling site, J.R. Martinez has the best odds to win at 1 to 2. Ricki Lake holds 3 to 1 odds, while Rob has a 4 to 1 chance of winning.

That's right, even after an ankle injury left him in a distant third last week, the Iraq War vet, motivational speaker and actor is considered the top dog right now.

Says a lot about his fan support, but Ricki and Rob are no slouches in that department, either. If they all perform well Monday, the results will be very interesting.

Fan votes account for 50 percent of the aggregate score, with the judges' scoring making up the rest. So if no one has a big lead, anyone could take this thing.

The finals for DWTS on Monday include four dances from each finalist, so that can also change a lot. What do you think? Who's your pick to win Season 13?

Rob Kardashian has had one heck of a run, tangoing his way to the Dancing With the Stars finals on ABC this fall. Along for the ride in the audience? His entire family.

Almost.

Absent until October 31 was Scott Disick, Kourtney Kardashian's baby father. That's 'cause Kristin Cavallari was still on the show until then, Life & Style says.

Say what?

  • Scott Disick, Sunglasses
  • Kourtney Kardashian Kover
  • Kristin Cavallari, Sunglasses

The celebrity gossip magazine alleges that just before Kourtney became pregnant with her and Scott's child, he was putting it to Kristin, a DWTS hopeful this fall.

"While Kourtney and Scott were on a break, Scott hooked up with Kristin," a friend reveals. "Kourtney can't stand her now and didn't want Scott at show tapings."

A Kardashian pal confirms that "Scott and Kristin definitely hooked up in Las Vegas during a time [February 2009] that he was on a break from Kourtney."

The Kardashian insider adds that both Kourt and Scott were BFFs with Kristin Cavallari, who used to date Kourtney's stepbrother Brody Jenner, at one point.

That was then, though, and this is now.

She and Kristin have been enemies ever since. "Kourtney was furious," the friend says. "She and her sisters have called Kristin 'the whore bag' ever since."

The most surprising part of this report? That Scott Disick actually scored with both of these girls. Look at him, wearing sunglasses at night! What a douche.

Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy made it all the way to the semifinals before being eliminated on Tuesday evening's Dancing With the Stars results show.

But instead of going out on a high note, did the soccer star and her mercurial pro partner demonstrate the bad attitude they've been accused of in the past?

Certainly not in the immediate aftermath of their elimination, when they were gracious to one another and to their fans before their last dance of the season:

In the last nine weeks, the pair weren't the first or only couple to be criticized by the judges, but they were the ones who made it into a controversial issue.

Starting with Chmerkovskiy lashing out at Len Goodman, the couple's combative ways - with each other and the judges - was a continual thing all season.

In a video recap of Monday's performances, Solo complained about her scores: "Sevens? The same thing I got in week one. Kiss my booty," she said.

"The scores at this point, the judges at this point mean nothing."

The pair were also overheard swearing about the judges as they awaited their second set of scores during Monday's performances: "F--- 'em," they said.

Hope then reportedly refused all interviews after the program.

What do you think? Did their attitude and competitive ways actually hurt them this season, with the judges and with fans? And are you sad they're gone?

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.

  • Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke
  • Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
  • J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff

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 ...

"It's my time to peak." - Rob Kardashian.

All but written off by many (including THG) at the onset of the season, Dancing With the Stars' dark horse looks like a virtual  lock for next week's finals, where he'll be quite formidable. Could Rob Kardashian actually win this thing?

Cheered on by Bruce and Kris Jenner, sister Kourtney Kardashian and nephew Mason, Rob turned in a paso dole and a tango what left him just two points behind Ricki Lake at the conclusion of the semfinals, and well ahead of J.R. Martinez.

Watch his performances and see if you think he can pull it off ...

Hope Solo is a tough-as-nails competitor. That much is obvious.

Sadly, that alone isn't likely to carry her to the Mirror Ball trophy.

Monday night on Dancing With the Stars, we learned she has shoulder pain from a tear she suffered at some point, and needed a huge shot just to get on the floor.

J.R. Martinez also battled through an injury last night, but Hope's grit failed to impress the judges, who remarked that she's "lost finesse" and needed "artistry."

Later, her fierce Argentine tango was much stronger, but in the cha-cha relay, a last place finish and total of just four points put another dent in Hope's hopes.

Any chance Hope survives tonight's results show? You tell us:
