Dancing's Derek Hough: The Mishap Was "No One's Fault"

Hey everyone,

Thanks for your votes and support!

Congrats to Alfonso and Witney! How great was the finale? Well, except for that set mishap!

That was an unfortunate incident. Bethany and I were feeling good, the dance had just started and then that happened. It just goes to show that you can plan everything, but you can't control everything. The camera guys ...

Who Won Dancing with the Stars?

Well, we've arrived at the end of another long, hard season of Dancing with the Stars. I don't know about you guys, but I totally empathize with the physical pain the contestants are in at this point. I've gotten multiple leg cramps from sitting on my couch watching these performances week after week.

Per usual, the two-hour final episode — preceded by an hourlong look back at the season — is an exercise in fluff and short-term nostalgia. read more

Dancing with the Stars: Which Couple Got Eliminated?

The final four pairs are facing off on Night 1 of Dancing with the Stars' Season 19 finale. And, as we did last season, we're bringing you a TVGuide.com group-effort recap.

Let's get to it!

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. Before "America's Choice"-slash-trio night gets underway, Tom Bergeronreveals that last week's lowest-scoring couple, Tommy and Peta, are safe and have definitely secured a spot in the semis. So who will be the "surprise elimination" this week? (My money's on eitherLea or Alfonso.) Let's find out:
