Tuesday (May 25) night, someone will take home the coveted “Dancing With the Stars” Mirrorball trophy, but which of the three remaining stars will it be?
Points-wise, Nicole Scherzinger leads the pack, and might seem like the predictable one to win. She came into Monday night with 363 judges’ points across the season, which Tom Bergeron told us happens to be the highest score ever at this stage in the competition. Scherzinger’s rumba got a 9-9-10 and her freestyle dance earned a 9-9-9, giving her a total of 55 out of 60 for the night. Her high-octane freestyle dance might have earned rave reviews from the judges, but did it wow those who call in the votes?
While Scherzinger has been pretty consistent throughout the season, Evan Lysacek has yo-yoed between disappointing and outstanding performances. He’s even gone from tied for last place one week to perfect 10s the next. Unfortunately for Lysacek, Monday was not one of his better nights. His Viennese waltz earned a solid 10-9-9, but his freestyle dance (8-8-8) sealed his fate as the last-place finisher of the night with a 52 out of 60. Will voters remember his past stellar performances or place their votes based on what they saw tonight?
Erin Andrews has traditionally been one step behind Scherzinger and Lysacek when it comes to judges’ scores, but her sensational samba earned her a 10-10-9 and her sexy bedroom-themed freestyle dance got a 9-8-9, giving her a total of 55 for the night. Suddenly, the underdog is tied for first place with the unstoppable Scherzinger. Everyone likes an inspirational underdog story — will Andrews get her fairytale ending?
