Four famous dancers started Monday night “Dancing with the Stars” Final – Caitlin Bristow, Nelly, Justina Machado and Neve Schulman.
But in the end there can only be one level between the confetti and the roar of the artificially created audience cheering.
The four couples danced to two numbers – a past favorite and a freestyle – called like a siren from the Mirrorball Trophy judges’ table, the final symbol of celebrity ballroom completeness and spectator popularity.
Host Tyra Banks excelled in her dressing season, the judges breathed vital fire into the epic final and the dancers kept pace. As the dancers who were expelled from the season (Minus Carol Baskins) The shocked “Bachelorette” star Bristow took the crown home.
Went down here, the final walk.
Caitlin Bristow deserves a rose for her dance
“The Bachelorette” began the finale by relaunching its Week 9 Argentine tango into Britney Spears’ “Toxic”, a turning point for the power rival in the dance competition. With stunning laser lights and enhanced precision steps, the somehow ultra-centered Priestow and pro Artem Siegwindsave are still perfect.
“Look at me, I’m choking. You took my breath away,” Judge Bruno Tonioli said breathlessly.
“I know I pushed you,” said frequent critic Gary Ann Inaba. “But this is now one of my first three dances of all time.” The judges rolled with 10s straight to 30/30. Early dance increased the potential of audience votes for an already popular dancer.
Round Two: In stunning freestyle from “Moulin Rouge” to “Sparkling Diamonds”, Bristow, covered in glow, descended from a swing to the stage and began a visualized display of ballroom movements, every twist known to man.
“You threw everything away, and the kitchen would sink,” Innaba said, guiding the fame and consensus 10 paddles. Bristow certainly went to glory. (30/30. Total 60/60)
Nelly showed her love for dance, with no mistakes
The rapper is at the bottom of the leaderboard due to technical glitches, but is always supported by his fans. Errors persisted even in the finals. Nelly recounted her 80s night samba to Deborgz’s “Rhythm of the Night”. Although the special effects have been improved, the boom box now has a laser effect in the air, with the same old Nelly pro Daniel Caracas.
“You make people feel good,” Derek Hugh said, raising criticism that the judges must be strictly positive.
Tonyoli “pointed out technical issues, but it’s great to see you. It’s fun.” The judges generously awarded 9 points for 27/30.
Round Two: Nellie was with her element in Freestyle, attacking the dance floor for “Savage” written by Megan Fire Stallion and moving The Notorious BG’s “Hypnosis”. He and Caracas scatter a mix of hip-hop, Latin and ballroom chandeliers on the dance floor. The final action transcended gravity as Nellie wrapped her arms around Caracas and wrapped her arms around him and brought her back to earth.
“Nelly, King of Swag, King of Swing. It’s freestyle, Nelly-style,” Tonyoli said. 10s straight from the judges. (30/30, total score 57/60)
Neve Schulman finished his ‘catfish’ – he was actually a great dancer
Schulman, a television presenter, believed that the early cut was such a power rival. She and pro Jenna Johnson repeated their paso doble to “Black Swan Swan Lake” by District 78, in which the judges were initially interested in superiors. The new version has been modified, is even stronger, and Schulman has completely shaved his hairy chest.
“You all made catfish,” Hugh said, commenting on the impossible ballroom trip.
“That dance was completed the first time you did it. It was completed again,” Inaba said. No shock, straight 10s. (30/30)
Round Two: Freestyle summed up Schulman’s mastery as “Singing in the Rain”. It started out foot-free, with dancers in yellow rain slickers and matching umbrellas, took off their jackets and had a bad part, and then went wonderfully with a foot-tapping section in a mid-floor water pool in the middle of the actual rain.
Tonyoli seemed to have a loss for words, calling the number “show-stopping” and adding “I didn’t expect it”. Instant 10s. (30/30, total score 60/60)
Justina Machado continues to bring fire, and smiles
The “One Day at a Time” star was a pure joy contestant, bringing it back to Sasha Farber again from the 1st week to Aretha Franklin’s “Honor” with Sasha – the week she first unleashed the killer combo with that smile and hips.
The bells were shining, a smile rang out, and then Machado grabbed a ceiling-dropped mic as “respect” for lip-sync. The self-described “little Puerto Rican girl from Chicago” got it.
“You know how to bring it up,” Inaba said. “I love your fire!” Marks straight 10s. (30/30)
Round Two: Machado’s second freestyle dance was a happy showstopper for Jennifer Lopez’s “Let’s Get Loud”, which was split in The Gypsy Kings’ “Bombolio”. The cultural celebration gave Machado an exclamation mark that would delight the crowd.
“I could not think of a better freestyle to finish this season. You crushed it,” said Huff, who pulled 10. Yes, perfect marks. (30/30, total score 60/60)
But there is only one
Banks announced the final quality of the dancers in descending order. It’s quick, perhaps without the whole drama.
Dancer in fourth place: Machado.
Third place dancer: Nelly.
It was left to the final two, Schulman and Priesto. But the winner and new champion is Caitlin Bristow. The “bachelorette” star screamed loudly, the bachelor everyone heard, hugging his partner and holding the cup with tears.
