At the end of the finals tonight, Brooke Burke might have led the pack in terms of total points, but it was still anybody's game when the sequins settled.
After the group "samba smackdown" in which judge Len Goodman gave out some questionable scores (a "7" to Warren, an "8" to Lance) it was down to business in the freestyle.
Brooke was pretty in pink and pretty cool in the judges' eyes as she scored a perfect "30" for a spangly routine to "You're the One that I Want" from "Grease." Warren came out fighting with a lift-filled routine that earned him a "10" from Goodman who said it was for "entertainment" value. Sure, it was entertaining, but it was also very good dancing, as Sapp earned 27 points when all was said and done.
Then there was Lance and Lacey.... who opted for a funky hip-hop routine that was a good routine, just not on par with the other two. In my very humble opinion, the trophy was Lance's to lose, and the freestyle might have very well cost him the trophy. And honestly, I haven't been cheering for Lance this season, who didn't seem to have any oomph in him as the weeks went by. Then he and Lacey exploded last week with two sensational routines and suddenly the competition wasn't so cut-and-dry.
The standings going in to Tuesday night's results show: Brooke, Lance, Warren.
Tuesday night the results and the winner will be revealed. Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys are set to perform. In all, it's been a very exciting season (even through all the Cloris Leachman drama!). I'm predicting Brooke Burke will be crowned champ tomorrow night. Stay tuned.
