This is it people. The only stars left in the running for the Mirror Ball are Drew, Frankie, Jordan, and Lindsey. This week there is a two night season finale. So yes, we find out who the winner is tonight! But last night someone got eliminated, and there were mixed feelings about the scores. By the way, Julianne Hough returned last night as a guest judge!

“Get Ready” by Rayelle
Paso Doblé
#TeamHotProperty

Bruno challenged Drew to open his body more, and he did pretty good! Carrie Ann called it his best dance. Len said it had finesse, quality, and control. Julianne has been watching from home, and she officially gave Drew the title of most improved!

Carrie Ann: 9
Len: 9
Julianne: 9
Bruno: 9
TOTAL: 36/40

Frankie Muniz & Witney Carson

FRANKIE MUNIZ, WITNEY CARSON

“I Won’t Dance” by Frank Sinatra
Foxtrot
#TeamFranneyPack

Carrie Ann challenged Frankie to do a solo during his routine. Frankie had form, shape, and most importantly confidence! Len liked the Hollywood vibe, but appreciated that he was able to maintain the foxtrot. Julianne enjoyed Frankie’s ability to spin Whitney around the dance floor like a dreidel! Bruno loved that they challenged a bit of Fred and Ginger in their dance routine.

Carrie Ann: 10
Len: 9
Julianne: 10
Bruno: 9
TOTAL: 38/40

Jordan Fisher & Lindsay Arnold

“Bad Man” by Pitbull feat. Robin Thicke, Joe Perry and Travis Barker
Charleston
#TeamFishUponAStar

Len had been Jordan’s toughest critic this season, and he challenged Jordan to have a cheerful dance. Lindsay still has a bad knee, and Jordan still has a bad eye, but you’d never be able to tell with how they danced! It was a tight, high energy dance. Julianne couldn’t even be a judge when it came to this duo dancing. She was too busy being a fan. Bruno said the content was “sharper than a smart sword.”

Carrie Ann: 10
Len: 10
Julianne: 10
Bruno: 10
TOTAL: 40/40

Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas

LINDSEY STIRLING, MARK BALLAS

“Barflies at the Beach” by Royal Crown Revue
Quickstep
#TeamSTARK

Julianne remotely coached Lindsey and Mark to perfect their quickstep technique. Lindsey nailed her posture! The duo preformed a long quickstep. The viewers at home probably didn’t realize how difficult that was. Lindsey maintained speed and control.

Carrie Ann: 10
Len: 10
Julianne: 10
Bruno: 10
TOTAL: 40/40

FREESTYLE

“The Ding-Dong Daddy of the D-Car Line” by Cherry Poppin’ Daddies
#TeamHotProperty

In week one, Len said if Drew was a house, he’d be a fixer upper. Now, Len thinks he’s all fixed up. Bruno thought Drew took this number, and made it his own. Carrie Ann said it was a crowd pleaser. There was only one problem. When you dance in a big group, it’s obvious when someone falls out of line. Unfortunately, Drew was that someone.

Carrie Ann: 9
Len: 10
Julianne: 10
Bruno: 10
TOTAL: 39/40

Frankie Muniz & Witney Carson

FRANKIE MUNIZ, WITNEY CARSON

“Run Boy Run” by Woodkid
#TeamFranneyPack

Frankie and Whitney were a day behind in practicing for this dance because Whitney was debating to stay with the kind of dance everyone is used to from Frankie, or to do something unexpected. Frankie and Whitney decided to take a risk. Was it the right decision? It was creative, different, and intense. As always, Frankie gave the dance his all.

Carrie Ann: 9
Len: 9
Julianne: 10
Bruno: 10
TOTAL: 38/40

Jordan Fisher & Lindsay Arnold

LINDSAY ARNOLD, JORDAN FISHER

“Puttin’ on the Ritz 2017 (Jazzy Radio Mix)” by Taco feat. tomX
#TeamFishUponAStar

Straight up, Jordan is a superstar. It was a winning performance. This dance had all of the bells and whistles, and the judges didn’t have much to say except that Jordan delivered his best performance, and is one of the greatest dancers to come through the competition.

Carrie Ann: 10
Len: 10
Julianne: 10
Bruno: 10
TOTAL: 40/40

Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas

LINDSEY STIRLING, MARK BALLAS

”Remember the Name” by Fort Minor feat. Styles of Beyond/“Palladio” by Escala (Medley)
#TeamSTARK

Star violinist Lindsey Stirling managed to not only pull off a phenomenal dance, but she showcased her musicianship at the same time. She played the violin, and preformed a unique, modern, yet classic dance. The dance was creative, and it might just win her the mirror ball.

Carrie Ann: 10
Len: 10
Julianne: 10
Bruno: 10
TOTAL: 40/40

The competition wouldn’t be a competition without elimination. With last week’s viewer votes combined with the judges’ scores…

Drew and Emma didn’t make the cut.
