David Ross flies the 'W' in DWTS finals, gets ideal score

Posted May 24, 2017

They've been stellar since the beginning. He was so smooth across the dance floor, and yet such a strong partner for Emma.

Goodman said Ross' time on the show has been a "truly Cinderella story". Total: 73 out of 80 David says he honestly never imagined he'd make it to the finale. She has notes about his feet, though. I know he's taken all sorts of comedic abuse, from a fart to the face to a lemon to the butt and, last night, a quick kick to his Cubbies. They got another flawless score. David has consistently shown an incredible stage presence during each dance number, despite any technical difficulties he may have faced during rehearsal.

She's wearing mid-calf boots during her dance tonight, so it's hard to see if she has on an ankle brace.

For his freestyle routine, Rashad was in it to win it, with a hip-hip, house- and drumline-infused routine, which, as judge Julianne Hough remarked, would go down as one of the most iconic freestyles in the history of the show.

She and Val mesmerized the audience and judge Bruno Tonioli was at his most evocative when he stood up and shouted, calling her "brilliant". The remaining three contenders performed their two final dances this Monday evening: one being a redemption chosen by the judges and the other a freestyle that showcases their time in the competition.

"I've grown so much from that scared girl who started on the show all those weeks ago", adds Kordei. It had a big moment in the '90s, so maybe it's back now.

It definitely shouldn't be David Ross, who should've wound up in fourth at best and will now hopefully peak at a surprising third. Dude. The internet is a scary place. Later the male pros dance and they're basically doing their best boy band impression, filled with pelvic thrusts, bare chests and Erin's drool.

David and Lindsay - For the first time in DWTS history they have brought in a MLB player, and he's bringing his peanuts and baseball bat. It's a cute routine, but David is still clearly the least talented of the dancers, and there's a fair amount of Lindsay dancing around him. Len said he has been waiting for David to knock it out of the park and the only thing missing here was a beer and a hot dog. Julianne calls it entertaining. "They just get on their phones and that's what gets you the Mirrorball".

Their routine, based on rehearsals, is going to include kid dancers. As there has been several freestyles performed on DWTS throughout the years, she knows for a fact this one specifically will go down in the books. It was such a fun number, and David was on beat for every single second of it. Normani followed with a spectacular performance that represented the light and confidence she had gained from the show and hopes to pass on to the next generation. However, despite how unbelievable both dancers looked, some of the judges felt the bodysuit made a few of the dancers' mistakes all the more obvious. They talk about their powerful Contemporary routine that helped her become a confident woman.
