The Season 14 cast opened up the show with a very exciting dance. At first, I just thought it was only the pros. It looked great. It was a chance for them to take a final bow. Very impressive!
Everyone agrees that the dancing in this season was the best ever.
Finalists were wearing pink and black costumes.
Brooke, the host, was wearing a gorgeous pink dress. It was connected with some kind of buckle thing. I’ve noticed her boobs haven’t popped out of her dress since I mentioned it on my blog. You think she read it?
The judges wanted to see Donald Driver and Peta do their freestyle again. It was another session of him throwing her around like a football. It made me nervous. What if he dropped her? This girl is one tough cookie.
Here are some comments from the judges about the finalists:
“Donald is like a gladiator coming out to do battle.”
“Katherine has technique.”
“William Levy has great charisma.”
What follows are some highlights of the show. Former cast members got a chance to show their stuff.
Review of the show
Sherrie Shepherd looks like she lost a few pounds.
She dance to a ridiculous song I’ve never understood, “It’s Raining Men.”
I enjoyed Sherrie’s dance with 6 sexy male pros. They lifted her up, still no small feat.
We were then treated with highlights from the season. How soon we forget the other contestants.
Brooke went to check out the 24-hour dances they all had to put together the day before the final. She talked to William Levy and Cheryl who were wearing snazzy costumes. She asks provocative questions like, “Are you nervous?” .
Martina was wearing a very cute dress, and looked pretty feminine, She did a good job dancing.
Jack Wagner was wearing a black outfit, and he danced competently. He looked feminine too. (Sorry Jack, for some reason I don’t like you. You must remind me of someone.)
Gladys Knight—did a great job dancing wearing a very cool red outfit.
Melissa Gilbert—Good dance with Maks and his brother. Roshon did a great dance wearing a nice blue outfit.
Williams Levy —Great last dance, the salsa, all the shaking in the right places. He is something.
As Carrie Ann said, “true star quality.” His little boy said, “ I love you daddy.” Cheryl, his partner, said, “He was a true talent, and he challenged me.” Final Score: 89/90
Katherine Jenkins and Mark
“I’ve loved every minute of it,” said Katherine. Here last dance was a jive.
Adorable 50‘s orange outfits to “splish splash I was taking a bath on a Saturday night,” an old Bobby Darin song. (Some of you may be asking who? Look it up.)
Such a cute dance!
Carrie Ann: “You two set the bar so high.” She gave Mark credit.
Len: ” I tell you Katherine, you’re the complete package.”
“Thank you for making me so welcome in America.” Donny Osmond told her, “If you win it, believe me, It’s worth it.” Final Score: 90/90
Peta thought Donald was a great partner.
Cha cha cha
They were both wearing pink costumes. Peta looks good in her skimpy outfits.
Donald took his shirt off! He gave it to Carrie Ann. He is as good a dancer as anyone, and he obviously works out.
Len: “You’re the best footballer we’ve ever had.”
Bruno: “Always inspired.”
Carrie Ann: “You’re the one to beat!”
I think it will be Donald Driver. 89/90
His little kids, very adorable, said, “Daddy we love you.”
The beefy teammates told him not to drop the ball because he was almost at the end zone.
Before the announcement of the winner, Gladys Knight sang a tribute to the finalists, “The Way we Were.” She was wearing a beautiful sequined black dress. She sings much better than she dances. They showed the finalists in a big montage on a huge screen while she was singing. .
3rd place: William and Cheryl. His little boy is crying, Aw!
2nd place: Katherine Jenkins and Mark
Winner: Donald Driver is the winner! Honestly, it was no surprise to me, and I wrote this as I watched it.
He was presented with the Mirror ball or is it Miraball?
Until the 15th season, goodbye Dancing with the Stars
