Dancing with the Stars Recap: The Season Finale

by at . Comments

Which couple on Dancing with the Stars came through when it mattered most? Let's not waste any time in getting to last night's recap...

J.R. Martinez Pic

Laila Ali and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Pasa Doble) - This was an improvement over earlier in the season - and Laila had much more difficult choreography to do. She was impressive, but there were a couple moments where she seemed to lose the rhythm. The theatrics of the performance were top notch at least. Len thought it was fantastic. Bruno called it a tidal wave of passion and drama. Carrie Ann agreed with them and loved it as well. Score: 29 (10, 9, 10)

Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough (Rumba) - The rumba was an interesting choice. They looked great together and had great chemistry. The dance lacked some of the flash we have seen in other numbers, but the more subdued steps were beautiful. This has been a fantastic debut on the show for Hough, too. Bruno compared it to American Gigolo somehow, and that was a good thing. Carrie Ann said it was over-performed. Len agreed with Carrie Ann, saying that the performance lacked romance. Score: 28 (9, 9, 10)

Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson (Cha Cha) - Now, if you have been playing along at home for the past ten weeks, you had to cringe at that marionette opening. They got past that and went on to have a very fun performance. Unfortunately, it was a little too fun, and not really enough cha cha. Carrie Ann thought it lacked content. Len called it too theatrical, with too many tricks. Bruno said it was just not quite there. Score: 26 (9, 8, 9)

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.
