Update: Annie’s recap is live. At laaaaaast! The finals are here — along with my parents and sister (DANCMSTR Dee, Bolero Bill, and Mirror ball Meggers), who’ve never been in the ballroom! Look for us! Three giants and a lady. I’m wearing a beige and black pattered dress and crazy glasses and look like a nut as usual. Guessing everyone else will be in black.
Tonight’s one-hour performance finale is just a quick hit, with freestyles and “favorite dances” from our top three couples: Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough, Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani, and Kelly Monaco and Valentin Chmerkovskiy. May…..the most ambitious freestyle win? (According to DWTS lore, yes.)
~~~~Fingers crossed for fringe~~~
