Will David Ross' finals scores secure him the mirrorball trophy?


America's most-watched dancing competition gave Business Insider a behind-the-scenes look at one of its biggest episodes of the season, Disney Night.

And yet, after part one of the show's two-night season finale (because no reality competition can die quickly), even after weeks of outstanding performances, Normani might've been tripped up right at the finish line. The redemption dances were then followed by the freestyle dances.

Normani and Val later got a ideal score for their freestyle to "What the World Needs Now is Love" by Andra Day and during the judges critique, she thanked everyone at the show for helping her bring her light. Rashad's total score is 157. That's why he wants the mirror ball more than anything!

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 ideal - and the freewheeling "freestyle dance". I know he moves on the dance floor like you imagine your dad would - clunky and stiff, but totally full-hearted into it to the point the flaws make it even more adorable. The diamond shone just as brightly for the freestyle routine. But the judges will weigh in on a final dance Tuesday night. Kordei earned 38 points. Hough disliked her outfit (a catsuit) for the dance, but Tonioli and Inaba were ecstatic about the performance. After reviewing it, Val acknowledged that their quickstep wasn't so quick! Plus, we didn't really see anything new from the 20-year-old singer, whereas it was clear her competitors' main goal was to show viewers just how much they've improved. She rolled her ankle in rehearsal and it looked pretty painful, but Normani powered through. Jennings later returned to impress with a spirited, funky freestyle to "Let's Go"/"Uptown Funk" from Drumline/Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars, bringing him another flawless score for the night.

We were also correct that the judges would give out 10 or more ideal 10s (8/13 odds, 62% chance). Unfortunately, Normani recently suffered and ankle injury, but if she can overcome that and perform as well as she has all season, Team "Valmani" should win this season's DWTS. Score: three 8s and a 9 for 33 out of 40.

David Ross throws a ceremonial first pitch before a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He fully understands he is here because of the fans and he's proud to represent them.

Ross and Arnold kicked things off with their Redemption dance, a Viennese waltz to "Let's Hurt Tonight" by One Republic. Len called David, "truly a Cinderella story", and Bruno said David "kept the glow and flow of the dance". Later, after their freestyle, the judges really went ballistic! No one is eliminated on Monday night. It was a dance EVERYONE could appreciate, as it was inspired by that fun party feel of a Super Bowl halftime show, complete with Marching Band movements, funky costumes and a silver sparkly football.

The theme for the DWTIS finale is 24 Hour Fusion Challenge, which means that each pair will need to have a routine that incorporates two different dance styles.
