Dancing With The Stars – Season Six – The Finals

Posted by ctanglefoot on May 20, 2008

I am loving this season, Ducky on the other hand his bemoaning that it is in the stars that a woman is going to win this season.  He believes the season is rigged. I on the other hand see this season as a great competition, but yes I think Kristi and Mark have it sewn up.

Tonight the finalist danced two dances, and in a first they had a dance off. A very interesting segment where one couple opened the dance, a second covered the middle portion of the same song, and the third couple closed the dance. 

The song: Lionel Ritchies’ Dancing On The Ceiling

The dance: The Cha Cha (poor Jason, he was not built for this dance)

Cristian de la Fuente and Cheryl Burke opened the competition. She was great (per normal) he was bla. His movements lack sharpness, but his hips are great.

The judges scored them 8 – 9 – 9 for 26 points.

Jason Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska delivered the middle portion of the dance.  Not much of a  Cha Cha Cha.

The judges scored them straight 8s for 24 points.

Kristi Yamaguchi and Mark Ballas closed out the dance with a High energy Cha Cha – they kept real.

The judges scored them straight 10s for 30 points.

Round One to Kristi and Mark.


The freestyle competition separated the boys from the girl.

Kristi & Mark opened the round with a high energy, highly entertaining dance.  It featured great lifts, great hips, but I think she had a misstep (but she didn’t fall) 

The judges scored them straight 10s for 30 points and a total of 60 points.

Jason & Edyta danced a fun number that offered great lifts, but wasn’t an overly ambitious dance. Jason personality shines, but Edyta doesn’t choreograph for him as much as she does for herself.

The judges scored them scored them straight 9s for 27 points and a 51 total on the night.

Cristian & Cheryl offered up a high energy dance, the lifts were light because of his arm.  I give him credit for continuing on in the competition after being injured but I think he’s being given sympathy votes from the judges. This dance shouldn’t have scored higher than Jason and Edyta’s and yet…

The judges scored them 9 – 8- 9 for 26 points and a total of 52 on the night.

Jason & Edyta were robbed, but Kristi and Mark were clearly the winners on the night. Round Two to Kristi & Mark.

Who will win the Disco Dance Ball? Tomorrow night will tell.  Until then,

    I think Kristi & Mark have had a leg up (pun intended) throughout this whole competition and it hasn’t been fun to watch them dance all season. The judges fawn over them. And I think it was in poor taste to have the three of them lined up and have Carrie Ann blatantly tell the other two dancers that they weren’t up to Kristi.

    I also think it was completely unfair that Mark & Kristi went into the group rehearsal with their dance unchoreographed and watched everyone else, but didn’t give any of their secrets away. Cheaters may win, but winners never cheat, Mark.

    Don’t get me started on Samantha’s poor co-hosting skills and cutting off Jason.

    But many thanks for writing this blog all season!!!!
