"Dancing with the Stars" finale kicks off tonight

"Dancing with the Stars" finale kicks off tonight

"I've never won the big game, and this is my chance to do it". Man, America just loves that guy!

David Ross would win the "Most Improved" award this season without any question. On Tuesday, each couple will fuse two contrasting dance styles they've performed this season for judges' points.

The DWTS Finale comes to end tonight, as the victor of Dancing with the Stars 2017 will be crowned! But I might be nicer, too.

The other two pairings still alive include Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy, and David Ross and Lindsay Arnold.

The mood in the ballroom totally switched gears to a handsome, inspirational routine by Normani and Val. It had a baseball element to honor his past and the goal was sheer entertainment over technical perfection. This isn't a James Hinchcliffe situation where Rashad's introduction to most of America has been Dancing with the Stars.

Before their first dance of the night, a pre-taped package addressed Kordei's ankle injury, which occurred when she was practicing a toe-touch in the dance studio with her pro-partner Val Chmerkovskiy. It's definitely an improvement from their week 1 quickstep, but Normani and Val can do better. The pair performed a redemption Quickstep that was lightning fast, but not flawless. And Julianne Hough said, "That is going in the book as an [iconic freestyle]". He fully understands he is here because of the fans and he's proud to represent them. Season 24 began in late March with 12 celeb competitors including Glee star - and former Beyoncé backup dancer - Heather Morris, Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan, pro bull rider Bonner Bolton, and Olympic gymnast Simone Biles. Len enjoyed the routine's emotion and beauty. The sports hero knows he's not the best dancer but gave it his all and earned praise from the judges, including Len Goodman, who congratulated him on making it to the finals and remarked that his progress was "a Cinderella story".

The "DWTS" taping started before the full magnitude of the tragedy was known, however, and featured the final three celebrities and their partners performing a "redemption dance" - something that they had done before which they wished to flawless - and the freewheeling "freestyle dance". It's nearly unfair to David that Rashad had the same style, because wow did he perform this beautifully. And Emma's choreography was attractive.

Rashad and Emma are at the top of the leaderboard going into the finale. The partnering segment with Emma was perhaps the clunkiest, but only marginally so. "It's not necessarily huge in production as much as it is in emotion". He may have just scored himself a victory.

Ross purposefully made his dance baseball-themed as a tribute to the many fans who have kept him in the competition. It's sure to be a tight and unpredictable race, but best of luck to all of the remaining couples!

Rashad Jenning and Emma Slater put together the DWTS version of a Super Bowl halftime for their Freestyle.

I'm going to predict Rashad in first, followed by David and then Normani.

Jennings delivered a far more sophisticated and smooth Viennese waltz that had sexual tension and better-than-usual footwork for the football player.

They hit the dance floor at 8 pm Monday on ABC and the finale will be aired at 8.30 pm on Tuesday.
