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."
Witney Carson, Alfonso Ribeiro
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.)
Bethany Mota, Derek Hough
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:
Lea Thompson, Artem Chigvintsev
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:
Peta Murgatroyd, Tommy Chong
Halloween has come a few days early to Dancing with the Stars, and with it,Len has risen from the dead! The esteemed judge — who's been absent from the show for the past few weeks — returns to the show by emerging from a coffin during the opening group number. Erin Andrews is back as well.
With two team dances to get through in addition to the individual numbers, there's no time to waste. The routines:
Sadie Robertson, Mark Ballas
¡Hola! It's Latin Night on Dancing with the Stars, and we've got plenty of steamy routines ahead of us. But, is one of the couples getting hot and heavy outside of the ballroom? The show sure wants us to think so. Read on to get the details.
Allison Holker, Jonathan Bennett
Dancing with the Stars went from high school hallways to federal prison Monday night, with each contestant revisiting the most memorable year of his or her life.
Alfonso Ribeiro, Whitney Carson
We're back with another Dancing with the Stars results show, before theTuesday edition retreats back into its glittery cave next week. A quick early observation: Can someone please inform Sadie Robertson that the camera can and will pan to her at any given opportunity? She's got a baaaad case of resting bitchface. End rant.
Tom and Erin waste no time in getting to the first set of results.
Tony Dovolani, Betsey Johnson
It's #MyJamMonday on Week 2 of Dancing with the Stars (of course Bruno's is "Born This Way") and, if nothing else, the song choices serve to highlight the age distribution between, say, Bethany Mota and Tavis Smiley on the show's 19th season.
For the second week in a row, it's Night 1 of 2. Who will be given the boot on Tuesday's results show? Here's a recap of tonight's performances:
Keo Motsepe, Lolo Jones
It's Dancing with the Stars déjà vu Tuesday night, with the results show rising like a phoenix from the ashes. (Not to fear, though: While there will also be aTuesday results show next week, the show will then return to its single Mondaynight format.) Julianne Hough is wearing a mostly sheer top, which somehow manages to still be more modest than her Monday night ensemble.
To the results!
