Dancing With the Stars Finals Recap

Dancing With the Stars

Here we go! The finals! I can’t believe it’s already here, it went by so quickly!

Tonight the final three couples compete for the title of Dancing with the Stars Season 20 champions. The remaining couples are Noah and Sharna, Rumer and Val, and Riker and Allison.

Each couple danced to a new freestyle number as well as chose a favourite dance they had already performed this season to dance to again to try and get a higher score.

The scores from the encore performances are as follows:

Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess
Dance: Argentine Tango
Song: “Rather Be” – Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne
Score: 32
*First performed this during Week Three: Latin Night and scored 30*

Riker Lynch and Allison Holker
Dance: Paso Doble
Song: “He’s a Pirate” – Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
Score: 40
*Perfect Score*
*Perfect Night*
*First performed during Week Five: Disney Night and scored 38*

Rumer Willis and Valentin Chmerkobskiy
Dance: Foxtrot
Song: “Take Me to Church” – Hozier
Score: 40
*Perfect Score*
*Perfect Night*
*First performed during Week One and scored 32*

All of the couples improved their encore dances, with two of the couples receiving perfect scores. The next dance each couple performed was a freestyle which is the dance that will make or break your season. There’s a reason the freestyle is the final dance each couple performs.

The scores from tonight:

Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess
Dance: Freestyle
Song: “Titanium” – David Guetta feat. Sia & “Fix You” – Coldplay
Score: 40
*Perfect Score*
This was definitely an emotional performance and had many of the audience members in tears. Personally I think this was Noah’s best dance and he did an absolutely phenomenal job. This was some of the best choreography I’ve seen him do this season and I think this really showed why Noah deserved to be in the finals.

Riker Lynch and Allison Holker
Dance: Freestyle
Song: “I Won’t Dance” – Fred Astaire (Also performed by Frank Sinatra)
Score: 40
*Perfect Score*
*Perfect Night*
Riker and Allison did amazing with this job. They were told that their freestyle is exactly what a freestyle is supposed to be and, while I don’t know a ton about dance, going from the smooth beat to the rap/freestyle jumpy beat is definitely what a freestyle looks like to me. Just like Noah and Sharna, this dance definitely proved why they’re in the finals!

Rumer Willis and Valentin Chmerkobskiy
Dance: Freestyle
Song: “Toxic” – Britney Spears
Score: 40
*Perfect Score*
*Perfect Night*
Val and Rumer had a difficult time practicing this dance because there was so much pressure on them. Val has made it to the finals three times, but never won and they were determined to make this dance their own and prove who they were and that they deserved to be there. I can say with absolute certainty that they did that.

Tonight was tough! Each couple brought their A-game and it was intense. All three couples received perfect scores on their second dances and two of the couples even had a perfect night! Check back tomorrow for the recap of the Finals results!

Who do you think will win?
