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 ...
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.
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. Tonight my esteemed colleagues Joyce Eng (former DWTS recapper) and Robyn Ross (who has admitted to imitating DWTS routines alone in her apartment) will also be offering their thoughts on tonight's routines.
Let's get to it!
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."

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 ...
