Who Will Win Dancing with the Stars? Carrie Ann Inaba Sizes Up the Season 19 Finalists

Heading into the season finale of Dancing with the Stars, the winner is typically at least somewhat a foregone conclusion. So it's unusual that, in Season 19, the Mirrorball trophy is truly anyone's to lose on the two-part season finale, which kicks off Monday at 8/7c and concludes on Tuesday at 9/8c on ABC.

"This to me is by far the closest competition we have had in a long time," veteran judge Carrie Ann Inaba tells TVGuide.com. "I'm really interested to see how it's all going to play out. ... At this stage, it could be any of them. It's going to be great."

Dancing's Derek Hough: I'm Trying Not to Repeat Myself

Hey everyone,

Thanks for your votes!

Woohoo! Finals! I can't believe we're here! Someone pointed out to me that this is my fifth straight final, which I didn't even realize. Holy crap! It's so surreal and amazing. I'm not really thinking about that though. I'm just focusing on Bethany and trying to give her the best material I can.

With the freestyle, I feel like I've covered a lot of bases before and it's like what's next? It's a sense ...

Dancing with the Stars: Was Alfonso Able to Dance in the Semifinals?

We've reached the semifinals of Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars, and everyone has that Mirrorball trophy glint in their eyes as they tackle "plugged-in/unplugged night."

The question on everyone's minds: Will Alfonso Ribeiro be able to dance in spite of his back injury? (Which sounds awful, by the way. After hearing Alfonso talk about how much pain he was in when he was dancing regularly, I can't imagine how serious the new injury must have been for him to question whether he could dance on the show. Ouch.)

Dancing's Derek Hough: It's Been a Rocky Week

Hey everyone,

Thanks for your votes!

Semifinals! I can't believe the season is almost over. We have the samba and contemporary this week, and I'll be honest, it's been kind of rocky so far. I had a creative block. It's not just a creative block because I am thinking of things, but it's a point where I'm just not satisfied. I want to do something different. I'm not happy with certain things. On Wednesday, I stayed late and I literally tortured myself until we had this breakthrough and ideas ...

Dancing with the Stars Surprise: Who Was Eliminated?

Greetings, Dancing Queens!

We're in the home stretch of Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars, with the semifinals next week and the finals the following.

So who will be the "surprise elimination" this week? (My money's on eitherLea or Alfonso.) Let's find out:

Dancing's Derek Hough: I Hurt My Back

Hey everyone!

How are you? Thanks for your votes!

We've got two dances this week, so we're working hard! Or hardly working! We're doing the Argentine tango with Tony as our trio dance and the Viennese waltz as America's Choice. Bethany is looking great! It's also her birthday today! She's improved so much in the past two weeks. She just looks completely different. I'm really impressed. I get excited when I see her move. I'm like, "You look fantastic!" I'm not doing ...

Dancing's Derek Hough: I'm Making the Routines Harder

Hey everyone,

Happy Halloween!

Thanks for your votes! How'd you like Team Itsy Bitsy? We had so much fun doing that. The team dances are always fun to perform because you get to share the experience with more people. And Bethany did a great paso too. I was really happy with everything and to be on top of the leaderboard is a bonus. It was also great to have Len back this week. It's not the same without him, and getting a 9 from him is like getting a 10. He looks well rested, doesn't he?

This week, we have the ...
