It’s the night we have all been waiting for. Who will be the winner of Season 17? There’s still some dancing to do.  The three finalists received their assignments after last night’s show — they had to put together a Fusion Dance that was picked for them by another couple.

Of course all the other stars and their professional partners have come back for this.  Here’s a few highlights:

-There was a big opening dance number with everyone

-Valerie was back and did a lovely dance.

-Snooki did a dance with a bunch of the male pros and it was cool. The other dancers did their thing as well. Even Bill Nye came back with a stunt double, but he did pretty well in the parts that were actually him! (If you believe that was Bill Nye doing those tricks, I have a bridge to sell you…)

-Based on a Twitter vote, Amber and Derek did the repeat Freestyle of their dance! Loved it!

-The group dance to “What Does the Fox Say?” was redone with some more touches.  Not only that, the guys that actually sing it performed live. I think besides the Fusion dances, this was my favorite part.

Well, now came the last dances of the competition. I can’t believe that they did this in less than a day. Let’s see how it all went down.

FUSION DANCE

Corbin and Karina

Dance: Cha Cha/Foxtrot

It was really well done. Corbin made some mistakes but he owned it. He was just so happy to be there and be a part of the show, he got lost in the dance. Would that cost him?

Score: 9 -Carrie Ann, 9-Len, 9-Bruno; Total: 27

 

Jack and Cheryl

Dance: Paso Doble/Salsa

So one thing Jack had never done was the Salsa so I think that he and Cheryl pulled off a great dance. Some minor things here and there were wrong but Len said it best, “Out of all the stars, Jack was the one who’s given him the most pleasure to watch.” Go Jack!

Score: 9-Carrie Ann, 9-Len, 9-Bruno; Total: 27

 

Amber and Derek

Dance: Samba/Quickstep

As Carrie Ann stated that it’s like they invented a new dance.  Their fusion was completely seamless and they were rewarded correctly.

Score: 10-Carrie Ann, 10-Len, 10-Bruno; Total: 30

Before we get to the nitty gritty, each celebrity did a video thanking their partners. There were tears. And not just mine, they all cried as well.

3rd Place went to Jack and Cheryl- He was so happy he did it and he is tied with his sister Kelly!

 

So it comes down to Corbin and Karina and Amber and Derek.  Both great dancers but in the end:

AMBER AND DEREK!!!! WINNERS OF SEASON 17.  Not only that — it’s Derek’s fifth Mirror ball trophy!

So that made Corbin and Karina 2nd Place and all is right with the world.  It was a crazy season. Can’t wait for Season 18.

Happy Thanksgiving!

See you in March 2014!
