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."
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.)
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:
Immunity is back on the table on Monday's "Dynamic Duos" episode of Dancing with the Stars, with a new twist that allows the highest-scoring couple of the night to be automatically safe from elimination. The rest will go head-to-head in a dance off.
Who will be able to rest easy, and who will get sent home? Let's find out:
Sadie Robertson may have been introduced to fame by appearing on the A&E show Duck Dynasty, but she says she hopes her time on Dancing with the Stars will allow her to be seen as her own person.
"For my whole life I've kind of been shadowing what my family says," Robertson, 17, tells TVGuide.com. "They'll say something about my faith and I agree. But now, it's time for me to say, 'This is who I am as well.' I'm not hiding behind my family anymore. I'm sharing my faith by myself, which has helped me to be more bold and more confident saying things. It's the same God; it's the same faith. It's just my opportunity to share it in my words. And I have enjoyed it. It's been good for me and I've grown a lot from it."
