Tonight’s season finale of Dancing with the Stars awards the coveted Mirror Ball trophy to the winner of Season 18. The final three couples left standing are Amy Purdy & Derek Hough, Meryl Davis & Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and Candace Cameron Bure & Mark Ballas. Last night’s episode of the show featured the elimination of actor James Maslow.
Here is what we can expect from tonight’s finale from ABC.com.
Eliminated couples return to perform; musical performances by Amber Riley, Christina Perri, Iggy Azalea with Charli XCX, Cody Simpson and Ariana Grande; a winner is chosen.
Former Dancing with the Stars participant and Glee star Amber Riley, and current contestant Cody Simpson are just two of the musical performances on tap tonight. The big question is who will come out with the Mirror Ball. Expect Candace Cameron Bure to come in a solid third place. No one thought Candace would make it this far in the competition, and just being apart of the finals is a win enough for her. Now the race is down to Meryl Davis and Amy Purdy.
Meryl Davis might be America’s Winter Olympic sweetheart, but Amy Purdy can match her in both looks and talent. Purdy has the additional push of being paired with super dance pro Derek Hough. Add in the fact that Purdy is performing the same dance routines as the other celebs, but on prosthetic limbs and you have a recipe for success. Look for Amy and Derek to easily win tonight’s season 18 title.
Who do you think will win tonight? There’s also an hour long clip show of the season for those who need a refresher of the action starting at 8pm.
