Title: Season 9, Week 10: Performance
Air Date: November 23, 2009 at 12:00 AM PST
This is it, people! The big finale. And the judges are looking at tonight as a clean slate... it's anyone's to win! During rehearsals, each team is visited by one of the judges for last minute pointers. Will they take the advice?
First, the couples tackle dances they haven't yet performed. Kelly & Louis's Argentine Tango is beautiful and confident - Kelly has had such an incredible journey from the first episode. Next is Mya & Dmitry, doing a Paso Doble to Queen's "We Will Rock You" that brings the house down. Carrie Ann calls Mya the "Queen of the Paso Doble," and the judges agree giving her a perfect 30. Donny & Kym's Cha Cha Cha is solid and gets a 27.
In the middle of the show, we get to see the "megamix." All three pairs dance the same choreography and are judged against each other. They're rated in order, with Mya getting first place, Donny garnering second place, and Kelly landing in third place.
Finally, it's time for the freestyle dances, which gives each star a chance to shine on their own. Kelly has a couple of stumbles in her dance, and Mya's performance is a little disappointing to the judges. Donny & Kym steal the night with their high energy dance, earning them their best score of the season, a perfect 30!
