To say that Nyle's journey on the show has been an emotional one would be an understatement. Performing a fiery freestyle to "Sound of Silence," Nyle and Peta brought a rawness and ferocity to the dance floor that has been missing for most of the season.

Bruno Tonioli raved over the routine, saying, "That was beyond dancing. That was a work of art." Carrie Ann Inaba agreed: "I have to say, in 22 seasons, this is the best dance I have ever seen." Len Goodman rounded out the praise, stating, "You said that was a dance for deaf people. It wasn't. That was a dance for everyone."

With a perfect score from the judges, it's still anyone's game. Who will win the coveted mirror ball? Find out as "Dancing With the Stars" airs its Season 22 finale on Tuesday, May 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
