A Winner has been chosen and I am thrilled for who was picked. The opening number was flashy and wonderful. There was performances by several artists and another challenge the 24 hour fusion challenge that is always in the finale. The repeat performance was Riker & Allison’s freestyle. The little skit with willow interacting with the other stars online was very cute and innovative.

We are down to three finalists Noah, Riker and Rumor, each did two routines a repeat routine and a supersized freestyle routine. This finale lasted two nights the performances and the winner announced.

Noah 72 Riker 80 Rumor 80

Round 1 Dance

Riker & Allison, Paso Doble~Still as dramatic as the first time done with more flair, he looked professional and earned a standing ovation from the toughest critic Len.

Rumor & Val, Foxtrot~ She looked beautiful and they looked like they were having fun together. The judges loved the routine.

Noah & Sharna, Argentine Tango~ he showed improvement to his dance and showed his strength to be a good partner, he lost his timing and the judges noticed that and that his nerves got the best of him.

 Round 2 Freestyle

Val & Rumor~ This was stripped down with dazzling sets but it showed off her danced skills to perfection.

Riker & Allison~It was glitzy and fancy with his own style added to it. It was called Fred Astaire repackaged..

Noah & Sharna~This included artistry and his strength things we have seen before and it was moving but not the wow factor that I would expect with the freestyle. The judges were inspired by this routine.

@VisitPeru

The teams arrived last week in Peru and NYStyle Matt & Ashley couldn’t overcome their speedbump. Now were down to four teams and three of the four are blind date couples while one existing couples are left. CountryStrong had car issues¬† which delayed them.

Once there teams had to locate a clue in a large mosaic which was quite beautiful. Phil was on the scene as Blair & Hayley found their clue.

DETOUR

Shakes Your Hip~ couples learn the dance of courting, LegalEagles,  The costumes were beautiful and the dance intricate they had lots problems but finally got done.

Make Some Bricks~ make bricks then trace some more bricks to get approval. Teams did this task ProfessorGinger. One of the teams their bricks were lopsided but they fixed them then had to deliver bricks in 94 degree heat. GoldenCouple also did this task and they worked together and Tyler muscled his way to try to do all bricks and save one trip and Lauren broke one brick.  Country Strong did the task, these two were bumbling over each other and squabbling so they switched tasks these two are lousy at dancing after four attempts they were still lost.

ROADBLOCK

One team member has to ride a small boat through the surf to find a clue. Blair kept capsizing off his boat into the water. Jelani had a smart way to ride the boat on his back.  Lauren did the task and Tyler was such a supportive partner. Rochelle did this task last.

It’s been ten years of a dancing showing that pairs celebrities with professional dancers turned out to be a success. Loved showing all the dancers past and present including: Karina, Louie, and Maks. They also showed lots of celebs from the previous seasons¬† all over the ball room. past winners Meryl and Alfonso were also in the opening number. They used virtual reality showing past performance moments on the dance floor such a neat effect. The show has animation, great visual effects and great dancing.
