Tonight, the labour-inducing campiness of Dancing with the Stars will come to an uneventful climax. Three couples remain to duke it out in the All-Stars finale – Melissa Rycroft and her professional partner Tony Dovolani, Shawn Johnson and her professional partner Derek Hough, and Kelly Monaco and her professional partner Val Chmerkovskiy. Celeb Dirty Laundry is bringing you all of the action during our live recap tonight, but until that time, let us take a look at who should win, who could win, and who will most probably win.
Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough – They are currently at the top of the overall leader board with a total of 332 points. Their average score for the season is 27.67 – 0.77 points higher than Shawn Johnson’s average score during the 8th season of the competition; where Shawn won the competition with professional dance partner Mark Ballas.
Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani – This front runner couple has amassed a total of 331.5 points during the 15th season of the ultra-campy dancing show. Their average score for the season is 27.63 – 0.73 points higher than their average score during the 8th season of the competition; where Melissa and Tony placed 3rd in the finale.
Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy – These underdogs have twice scored the lowest of the night during the 15th season. They are currently in 7th place on the leader board with a total of 314.5 points – Emmitt Smith/Cheryl Burke, Sabrina Bryan/Louis Van Amstel, Apolo Ohno/Karina Smirnoff, and Giles Marini/Peta Murgatroyd are all ahead of them on the leader board. Their average score for the season is 26.21 – 3.21 points higher than Kelly Monaco’s average score during the 1st season of the competition; where Kelly Monaco won the competition with professional dance partner Alec Mazo.
Dancing with the Stars is, however, one of the only reality television shows where the points do lie. We know that no matter what happens during the finale, we’ll never, ever be able to predict the winning couple. The clandestine variables usually affect this competition in a mindless and disastrous manner. Nonetheless, Celeb Dirty Laundry is officially going out on a dangling limb and predicting front runners Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough as the winners of the 15th season of DWTS. They are in a league of their own.
Do you agree? Do you think underdogs Kelly and Val might receive the sympathy vote? Do you think Melissa and Tony will slip in unnoticed and take the prize? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
