The first part of the final week of Dancing With The Stars aired last night and it did not disappoint!
This has been the most talked about season of DWTS and perhaps for the first time in DWTS history, it seemed the best three really did make it to the finals.
Despite being the underdog of the final three, it seems ESPN reporter Erin Andrews might just be able to pull off an upset as she tied for first place with Pussycat doll Nicole Scherzinger. They both scored a total of 55 points. Olympic skater Evan Lysacek didn’t fair so well as he finished third with a total of 52 points.
The most talked about dance of the night went to Erin and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy . The pair did their hot & steamy freestyle dance using a bed and a couch as props. Maksim’s comments about the dance during the pair’s rehearsal might be a hint as to the status of their off screen relationship. “Our freestyle is very passionate. It’s very emotional. And in a way, I think it will tell the story of Erin and I,” said Maksim. And in case you’re still wondering about the duo’s relationship status, the two were spotted kissing just over a week ago.
But overall, the theme of the night seemed to be the errors made by front runners Nicole and Evan. Nicole had two slip ups in both of her dances, while Evan’s freestyle dance failed to impress the judges, earning him a mere 24 points.
The winner will be declared tonight during the 2 hour finale show. All of the eliminated stars will return for a final dance, and yes that includes the controversial Kate Gosselin. And speaking of Kate, a new report by Popeater reveals the mom of eight earned an astonishing $500,000 for her five week appearance on DWTS.
