Update: Annie’s recap is live.
And BREAKING: Derek Hough has reintroduced the Crotch Bob to a new generation of DANCMSTRs.
Welcome to part 1 of the TWO-NIGHT FINALE EVENT of Dancing With the Stars season 13! The three finalists — Rob Kardashian, Ricki Lake, and J.R. Martinez — will perform an “unlearned dance” routine as well as a freestyle. Evan Lysacek will be a hidden gem in the crowd, hopefully dressed as Lucille 2 like that one time in season 10.
Go ahead and discuss the two-hour performance show here, or try our more “live blog”-esque experience over at EW.com’s Viewer.
Check out the video player below for my trailer-park chat with mischievous leprechaun Tristan MacManus in Parts 1 and 2…. plus, a scattered glimpse of the set and backstage featuring DWTS Troupe member Teddy Volynets (I apologize for sound issues on that one) in Part 3, and a chill discussion on (but not about) lawn furniture with musical director Harold Wheeler in Part 4!
I hope you’ll go back as many times as I did to replay the part where Tristan says “Snuffleupagus” in his adorable accent (01:47 in ‘Tristan Pt. 1’).
