DANCING WITH THE STARS: Season 14  – The finals did not disappoint! Lifts, jumps, kicks and screams, the trio of duo finalists gave it all they got! Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas received a perfect 60 when their two dance scores were combined.

All couples first performed a dance from the season chosen by the judges who wanted to see it remastered. Then, came the freestyle, known to single handedly make or break a champ in a 2-minute heartbeat. This time, however, two couples managed to get perfect scores for their freestyles, Jenkins & Ballas and also Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd. William Levy & Cheryl Burke, who did receive a perfect 30 for their first dance, missed an encore score for their freestyle because grumpy Len Goodman thought Levy & Burke were too predictable. Still, Levy & Burke totaled 59 at the end of the night, as did Driver & Murgatroyd, both trailing Jenkins & Ballas by only one point.

It’s up to the fans to vote and then one more dance tomorrow before the champions of Season 14 will be crowned. Ballas and Burke, who have both won twice, could take a third trophy home matching the record holding three-time champ Derek Hough. If, Murgatroyd  & Driver grab the title it will be her first. It all comes down to this…the fans’ votes. The time has come as season 14 draws to a close…who will be the champ.

  1. KATHERINE JENKINS should have taken the Mirror Ball. Compared to the other female professional dancers who have been dancing all their lives, Katherine was neck and neck with them in skills, musicality, lifts, versatility and lines.

    Driver and Levy against the male professionals may have been strong enough to do lifts – but could never be compared to the skills, smoothness, and talents of any of the professional males.

    HANDS down – Katherine. The only thing lacking for Katherine and Mark was a city full of football fans to call in on her 800 number to vote for her and possibly the skimpy outfits of Peta But Katherine didn’t need them – she’s beautiful and talented and could wear a snomobile suit and still be poised and beautiful.
