This is your last change to vote for the finalists on DANCING WITH THE STARS as our four finalists went head to head tonight for your votes. On tonight’s show each couples compete in three rounds of dance. After last night’s performances at the top of the leader board was Zendaya and professional dancer Val Chmerkovskiy with a 65/65 and at the the bottom of the leaderboard was Jacoby Jones and professional dancer Karina Smirnoff with a 56/65. Did you watch tonight’s show? We did and we recapped it here for you.
On tonight’s show each couple danced three dances. In the first round, each couple took on a new routine in a dance style that the judges would like to see again. In round two, the couples were challenged to a Cha Cha relay, where each pair dances to a different section of the same song. In the last round — and one of the biggest competitive dances of the season — the couples took on a supersized freestyle featuring special effects, additional dancers and unexpected surprises.
There were some great performances last night and some even better freestyles. My favorite couple of the evening was Kellie Pickler and professional dancer Derek Hough. She received perfect scores for both of her performances. For her Quickstep Bruno said, “You are a the southern belle at the ball. Technically it was perfect. You two were super glued together. Fantastic!” For her amazing freestyle Derek decided to strip all the gimmicks away and just have Kelly dance. Len gave her a standing ovation and Carrie Ann was crying after her performance. Bruno said, “You did a dance of spellbound beauty, it touched everyone there. I am sure your touched the nation with that!”
Although the judges agree that Kellie was perfection last night they thought that Zendaya did a little better on the Cha Cha Raley and scored her 1 point higher than Kellie. Do you agree?

The fourth-place couple will be eliminated within the first hour of tomorrow night’s show, and in a final element of the competition, the three remaining couples will perform a new routine in an “Instant Dance”– where they will tackle a style they know, but to music given to them for the first time live on television. This routine will be scored out of 30 and will round out the judges’ scores across both nights.
No matter what the judges says, at the end of the day, the competition comes down to your vote at home. Who do you think deserves to win Season 16 of Dancing With The Stars. Vote in our trusty poll and let us know who you are rooting for to win the Mirror Ball Trophy?
