We’re arrived: the grand finale for season thirteen of Dancing With The Stars. It’s hard to believe that only 3 months ago, we were introduced to all of our stars who compete for that coveted mirror ball trophy. This season hasn’t gone without it’s drama, but overall, it’s made for a pretty exciting time in the ballroom. Remaining are three heavy-hitting crowd favorites. We have Ricki Lake, Rob Kardashian and J.R. Martinez.

After last night’s show, I picked Rob for the win and Ricki for first runner-up. So, how would the results stack up? The first round of competition will see our three remaining couples perform their favorite dances from the season. These scores will decide which two celebrities will be our final two and who will get third place. The stars will be ranked by the judges from 1st to 3rd. 1st will receive 30 points, 2nd 28 and 3rd 26 points. Those will be added to the scores from last night to make the overall grand totals. Make sense? I hope so. So what did each star chose as their redux?

Ricki chose to redo her Psycho Tango from the Halloween episode which Len mentioned was the most memorable routine of the season and quite possibly, the entire show. Rob chose to honor his late father once again with his Fly Me To The Moon Foxtrot and J.R. wanted a mulligan on his Lindy Hop inspired Jive.

The night’s performances and THE WINNER after the jump.

I have to admit, it was real nice only having an hour of Dancing With The Stars to watch. No fillers, no extras, just straight to the dancing… the way it should be done! Tonight is part one of the season thirteen final. We’re down to three celebrities: Ricki Lake, J.R. Martinez and Rob Kardashian. To be honest, I believe the true race is between Rob and Ricki and J.R. is going to come in third. But, will tonight’s performances shake up the game.

I love the first part of the finale because it’s when the Freestyle dance comes in to play. History can prove that the season is sometimes won in this round of competition. The stars and their pros pull out all the stops and incorporate the hardest lifts to make this performance as good as it can be to aim for that coveted perfect 30. So, would someone capture it tonight? Check out all the performances and vote for who you think will win this season of Dancing With The Stars.

Tonight is an important night. Tonight is where the decision is made on which three couples will compete in next weeks’ season finale of Dancing With the Stars. Last night was an interesting shuffle in the ballroom. A season favorite fell lower on the totem pole due to an injury and another proved why he deserves to stay. Let’s quickly recap their evening.

Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy had a fairly flacid night on the hardwood last night. They began with a wild Paso Doble that only got 7′s out of the judges. Her Argentine Tango was a little better but she failed to win the Cha-Cha Relay round ending with a 49 out of 60. Just above her was J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff. His Paso, Tango and Cha-Cha were really hindered by his ankle injury. So where would it place him tonight? Safe from elimination or in the bottom two?

Rob Kardashian really broke out of his last night. He began with a sexy Samba that had the ballroom on their feet cheering for the reality star. For round two, his Argentine Tango was absolutely to die for. One of my favorites from him. And to boot, he won the Cha-Cha relay. But it was Rick Lake who remained victorious on top. Her Samba earned her a perfect 30 and her Argentine Tango a close 29. Would either of these two front runners end up in the bottom?

After a whole lot of filler, we discover that Hope Solo and J.R Martinez are in the bottom two. So, who will be heading home tonight? Check out the elimination below.

Can you believe it? We’ve reached the semi-finals on Dancing With the Stars. Only four couples remain and it honestly feels like yesterday that we began watching this thirteenth season. Wow time flies. Tonight, the stars will be taking on a whopping three dances. Hope and J.R. will take on the dark and menacing Paso Doble while Ricki and Rob will attempt the sexy Samba. For round two, the stars will all take their turn working out an Argentine Tango and ending the night with an exhausting Cha-Cha relay. Did you get all that?

We all understand how round one and two work but if you’re not 100% sure on what the Cha-Cha Relay is, I’ll quickly explain it to you. Each couple will take a turn dancing a portion of Enrique Iglesias’ song, I Like How It Feels. Afterward, the judges will converse about who will win the round. The winner receives 10 bonus points, second place 8 bonus points, third place 6 and last place 4. These bonus points can definitely shake up the competition.

Tonight, the stars are going to bring everything they’ve got. However, tonight J.R. has a hindering ankle injury. Will this jeopardize his place in the competition after riding high on last week’s perfect 60? Let’s hope not. Meanwhile, Hope Solo had a great week last week but will she be able to maintain her climb upward or will this week separate her as the weakest amongst the strong. That leaves Rob and Ricki who in my opinion are going to be battling it out in the end for that mirror ball trophy. Without further ado, check out all the night’s performances and scores below.

Last night, the ballroom on Dancing With The Stars was full of excitement. The first round of competition saw the couples performing some of their best routines. J.R. Martinez pulled a double perfect score with 60 out of 60 for his Waltz and for his Instant Jive. Nancy had a strong Tango but her Instant Jive left something to be desired. So, who will be the four couples to move on to next week’s semi-finals and who will miss the mark one week early?

The first couples to receive their results are Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke, Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy and J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff. Rob and Hope both had some of their best dances all season long but J.R. did kick the hell out of last night’s competition by scoring a perfect 30 not once, but twice. J.R. and Hope are proclaimed to be in the semi-finals as Rob and Cheryl are sent to the bottom two. The ballroom definitely didn’t agree with that and resounded with boos.

The last two couples to hear their results are Ricki Lake and Derek Hough and Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus. Ricki had a lackluster night compared to her previous weeks but still managed to stay fairly close to the top. Nancy’s Tango was brilliant but her Jive lacked well, everything. Who will be safe? Is it going to be another ballroom upset? Ricki and Derek are safe and headed to the semi-finals while Nancy and Tristan find themselves in the bottom two with Rob and Cheryl. So, who will get the boot tonight? Find out after the jump.

The night’s elimination after the jump.

Last week, the ballroom got spooked by a plethora of Halloween inspired dances. This season’s favorite Ricki Lake came back on top with her fantastic Paso Doble and the combined total from her stunning team dance. However, the ballroom was rocked when David Arquette became the latest victim to fall short of viewer votes leaving Nancy Grace the opportunity to compete for one more week. So, how would our stars fare this week having to not only compete with one, but two routines.

That’s right, this week the show’s favorite curve ball, the instant dance is back! After the first round of competition, the stars and their partners will randomly draw a song out of a mirror ball. They will then be given 20 minutes to rehearse their choreography with the song. Then, they must head out on to the hardwood and give it all they got to impress the judges to win those scores.

Tonight, the stars performed some of their best routines of the season and one star even received a perfect combined total of 60 out of 60. However, Len did say the following to one competitor: “You have been a real Cinderella story, but Cinderella, the ball is over and it’s time to go home.” Who do you think Len said that to? Check out all of the night’s performances and scores below.

Last night, the stars took to the ballroom for a night of spooktacular routines. Nothing like Dancing With the Stars going full out to celebrate Halloween. After individual routines and two team dancers, Ricki Lake found herself once again topping the leader board while Nancy Grace fell to the bottom. Would this be the end of the courtroom queen? We’ll have to wait and see. But first, the evening is kicked off with a performance from YouTube’s highest watched superstar, Justin Bieber who performs the title track from his 3D documentary, Never Say Never (video after the jump).

After an encore performance from Team Paso (Rob & Cheryl, Ricki & Derek and Hope & Maks), we receive our first set of results. It’s between Nancy Grace and reality royalty, Rob Kardashian. The judges told Rob that this was his best dance of the season but Len audibly stated that it wasn’t Nancy’s greatest moment. With Nancy being the base of the leaderboard, would this be her demise to the bottom two? It would and Rob and Cheryl are safe to dance another week.

After an AT&T inspirational performance, Derek Hough and SYTYCD alumni, Allison Holker take the stage for a flamenco inspired routine. I can’t complain, any routine that involves Derek shirtless is okay in my books. Accompanied by violins, a classical guitarist and an amazing drummer, the two gave a jaw dropping performance. Back to results. J.R. Martinez has been fighting for top spot with Ricki Lake week after week but last night, fell into the middle of the pack with Ricki regaining the lead. Ricki and Derek are safe and so are J.R. and Karina. Shocker! So, will it be Hope Solo or David Arquette joining Nancy in the bottom. Find out below.

Performance videos and who went home after the jump.

We all know that being a contestant on Dancing With The Stars can have an amazing effect on your weight loss. Just ask former contestant Kirstie Alley who lost almost 100 pounds during her season’s run. Now, talk show queen Ricki Lake is the latest to lose the weight. But, it’s not just paying off in the waste line, but in the bedroom as well and I’m sure her fiancé, Christian Evans is thankful for that.

“Oh, my god, my love is pretty spicy. When I get home [from rehearsals], I train horizontally. [My fiancé] has noticed a difference in my stamina over the last couple of weeks.”

Umm, thanks for sharing Ricki, but I think you’re giving us a little TMI. However, how would pop culture fanatics like us thrive without living vicariously through our favorite celebrities lives. Apparently, she’s been quite candid with her new found sex life, and she’s not afraid to share it with her show’s partner, Derek Hough.
