People love Candace Cameron Bure! Although she and partner Mark Ballas have landed at the bottom of the leaderboard several times this season, her fans have kept her around all the way to the Dancing With the Stars Season 18 finale, which means we've been able to see her grow. And grow she has!

As we head into the last week of performances, we've taken a look back at Candace and Mark's season and selected our five favorite dances from the ever-improving star.

Week 1 Contemporary

We knew Candace was a contender as soon as we saw this dance.


Week 7 Argentine Tango

Candace started off strong but then began to struggle. This Argentine Tango got her back on track right when she needed the boost.


Week 8 Foxtrot

Good dancing, even better performance factor! Really just the perfect dance for Candace.


Week 8 Celebrity Dance Duel Contemporary

Contemporary is a great style for Candace, and it really showed here.


Week 9 Jazz

This jazz was all kinds of cool. Candace's confidence has really grown, and that makes all the difference.
