Dancing With The Stars Final Performance Show – Who Will Win?

May 21, 2007 08:28 PM by Joe Blackmon

Dws_final3For the final performance show, the three remaining couples danced two
dances each.  Each couple performaed one dance chosen by the judges and
one freestyle dance.  For their first dance, Laila Ali & Maksim
Chmerkovskiy danced the Paso Doble.  Len Goodman said “I thought you
danced it absolutely beautifully.”  Bruno Tonioli said “For me, this
was like a tidal wave of passion and drama.”  Carrie Ann Inaba said “I
have to say I’m so proud of you, Laila.”  Laila Ali & Maksim
received a score of 29 out of 30 points.

For their first dance, Apollo Anton Ohno & Julianne Hough danced the Rumba.  Bruno Tonioli said “It was like watching American gigolo and baby doll teasing each other and then blending into each other’s arms.”  Carrie Ann Inaba said “I thought you over performed it just a hair.”  Len Goodman said “It lacked any romance.”  Apollo Anton & Julianne received a score of 28 out of 30 points.

For their first dance, Joey Fatone & Kym Johnson danced the Cha-Cha-Cha.  Carrie Ann Inaba said “For a Cha-Cha, it wasn’t quite right.”  Len Goodman said “It was far too theatrical.”  Bruno Tonioli said “It was strangely odd.”  Joey & Kym received a score of 26 out of 30 points. 

For their second dance, Laila Ali & Maksim Chmerkovskiy danced freestyle.  Carrie Ann Inaba said “I got to say I love the fly girl moves.”  Len Goodman said “Your strength is elegance and sophistication, what those other two can’t do, and I would have gone that route.”  Bruno Tonioli said “Your strength is sex appeal and sensuality, more of that.”  Laila & Maksim received a score of 26 out of 30 points for a combined total of 55 out of 60 points.    

For their second dance, Apollo Anton Ohno & Julianne Hough danced freestyle.  Len Goodman said "It was everything that I like to see in a freestyle event."   Bruno Tonioli said "Well, the Apollo syndrome has taken hold of the country."  Carrie Ann Inaba called the couple over and gave them a hug.  Apollo Anton & Juliann received a score of 30 out of 30 points for a combined total of 58 out of 60 points. 

For their second dance, Joey Fatone & Kym Johnson danced freestyle.  Bruno Tonioli said “A hit parade of dance.”  Carrrie Ann Inaba said “I just love that you brought all that you’ve learned during the tens weeks of competition into that dance.”  Len Goodman said “I wish we had more than a ten to give.”  Joey & Kym received a score of 30 out of 30 points for a combined total of 56 out of 60 points.

So who will win the Dancing with the Stars 4?  This is one that is too close to call.  Before tonight, Laila & Maksim were likely the favorites, but the judges gave them the lowest overall score.  Apollo Anton & Julianne were probably the least likely couple to win before tonight, but they received the highest scores from the judges.  However, Joey & Kym finished very strong, and it’s often the last dance that can sway voters the most.  Our prediction is that Apollo Anton & Julianne will be the winners, but we could really see this one going to any of the three remaining couples.

    I don’t understand why Laila is still around! She is a mediocre dancer, her moves are much more simple than Apollo and Joey’s. Yet she has received nothing but praise from the judges, even when she makes slip ups. I think it is all about race. It doesn’t matter how the fans vote, they want another black contestant to win. Same thing happened on Survivor. Political correctness is so out of control.

    about time a WOMAN wins on Dancing with the Stars

  3. Richman Says:
    May 21st, 2007 at 11:42 pm

    Why a woman? Just because she is a woman or she is the best dancer that happens to be a woman? Laila underperformed tonight. She will be third. Emmitt was not a better dancer that Mario last season. Let’s hope the best dancer wins, either Joey or Apollo.

    Laila seems to be getting preferrential treatment from the judges.She really isn’t a good dancer, she’s ok, but not like the men. She should not win, seriously if she does, it means that they are fudging the voting. I mean come on! How many fans can really be voting for her anyways!

  5. Patti Says:
    May 22nd, 2007 at 8:24 am

    Laila favored to win? Only if you are one of the judges! Joey & Apolo danced circles around her. Apolo outdanced Joey because he has mastered many unique dances, where Joey just keeps falling back on the Jive. Apolo should get the win because he outdanced them all.

  6. Kathy Says:

    Didn’t a WOMAN win the first season? And besides, that’s NOT a reason to vote for someone, I mean, JUST for that reason.

    In response to Chris S., please stop with the racial remarks. If you were to flip the situation around, minorities would feel the same as you do about a white, winning two years in a row.

    Remember, every dancer has certain strenghts and they are being judged on different dances.

    May the best couple win!!!

    Dial Idol is reporting that it looks like Apollo will win Dancing with the Stars in a landslide, Laila loses in 3rd place.

    i dont trust dialidol.com. I hope apollo wins, but look what happened to melinda from Idol (sorry to bring it up; i know it’s a different show), but i have to say it. I hope it’s right this time; and if it’s not then maybe we’ll see Laila with the trophy…AARRRGGGGGGGHHHH!

  12. niufan Says:
    May 22nd, 2007 at 2:51 pm

    Dialidol was within the margin of error in its results for the Idol show which eliminated Melinda. It said that all three contestants were in danger of being eliminated. This is a huge contrast to the DWTS results, wherein Apolo has almost a 2 to 1 margin over the others, they are designated in red – predicted to be voted off, and he is predicted to win.

  13. Richman Says:
    May 22nd, 2007 at 5:23 pm

    Hey Prance Fan, glad to see you’re still here physically, if not mentally…I taped the entire last season and 3 different times the judges told Mario that he had the best dance of the season. How many times did they tell that to Emmitt? ZERO. Mario also had the highest average scores for whole year. So if you want to give an intellegent answer, do your homework. As far as this year, I’ve watched this entire season but have not taped them all but I think that Joey and Kim have had the most encores this year, so that should count for something, of course with your logic, you probably think Laila is the best dancer of all of the seasons and should win it all.

  14. Donna Lane Says:
    May 22nd, 2007 at 9:43 pm

    People did not vote for Mario because they think he might be homosexual.

  15. Jackylnn Says:
    May 22nd, 2007 at 10:11 pm

    Yeah!! For only the second time, the best dancer won!! The first was Drew. Apollo was awesome, he was by far number one! I also liked Joey, he was so entertaining to watch, as was Ian. I didn’t like Laila, for her dancing and her lousy attitude. I am definately happy with this season.

  16. dance fan Says:
    May 22nd, 2007 at 10:23 pm

    To “Rich”man – You taped the whole season last year? And watched it to count how many times the judges told Mario he was great? Can you be any more pathetic? Who are you, really? Mario’s mother or grandmother? Or just someone who seriously has a “man crush” on Mario? Wow! I cannot believe you did that, but even more, I cannot believe you admitted it! Yes, to other fans, Apolo was the best and he won! My choice as well! As for the racist and stupid remarks made this season by “RM”, we won’t miss that part of this season. Maybe by next year he will have matured into someone who can make an intelligent, non-racial comment. I remember at the end of last year he remarked to all of us who did not agree with him that “next year you will probably vote for the legless dancer”. How about that, fans, he was a bigot even BEFORE they chose Heather Mills to compete! ‘First time I ever saw PRE-Bigotry. But our l’il fella did it! See ya next season, everyone! And Richman, why don’t you become a fan of LOST. You are as confused as they are!

  17. Richman Says:
    May 23rd, 2007 at 1:11 am

    Dear Prance Fan, you are a blooming idiot! Gee, I taped the entire season…I wonder how many of the other 17,000,000 viewers did the same thing. As far as my dance knowledge, I dated a woman for 2 years that was a competitive ballroom dancer and she was actually on tv a few times on PBS on the Ballroom Challenge in Columbus. I went to many of her comps so I have a working knowledge of what is supposed to go on. So sorry if being a fan upsets you so. As far as RM, yeah, his comments might suck but it there is still a first amendment and anyone here can say whatever they choose. Hey, I think Romper Room is on, so why don’t you get your juice box and crayons and join the other children in the playroom.

  18. Tiny dancer Says:
    May 23rd, 2007 at 4:13 pm

    I agree with Richman. Mario did dance better than Emmitt. Emmitt won because of his smile. I tivo’d this years DWTS so am I a pathetic person also?

  19. dance fan Says:
    May 23rd, 2007 at 9:36 pm

    Dear Tiny, the pathetic aspect of Richman has nothing to do with taping the shows. It goes way back to last season and probably before that, when he made racist and biggoted remarks about all the dancers he did not like, talked about welfare people and gays, and generally insulted the world at large who disagreed in any way with his opinions. HE is pathetic because he has a weird obsession with Mario, and was very rude to anyone who thought any of the other dancers were better. THAT is the rest of the story…. it just so happens he likes the winner this year. If he did not, you would have been treated to his outrageous behavior as everyone was last year. Be glad you missed the entertainment. It was not pretty.

  20. dance fan Says:
    May 23rd, 2007 at 9:41 pm

    Richman, this is NOT a professional dancing competition. Why can’t you “GET” that? This is entertainment and prime time TV. As for your vast sideline knowledge of dancing, it took her two whole years to realize you were a jerk? She must have been really busy dancing not to notice sooner….. And are you referring to yourself in the third person, or trying to pretend that you are someone else?

  21. Richman Says:
    May 24th, 2007 at 9:27 am

    Prance Fan, oh high and mighty! Judging by your character assassination of me “Man Crush” it looks like you are homophobic. As far as Mario, I would up the same arguements with Stacy in S2 over Drew as she was a better technical dancer but not as good an entertainer. I guess I would have strange crush on Stacy by your words. It’s funny that when I try to prove my point by bringing up facts about the show you totally disregard the facts (convenient) and then go off of a rant of your own without backing up your opinions, instead calling me names because I taped the last season. Then you attack a relationship I had? You are a pathetic loser! So in your vein, (besides the crack you are obviously ingesting) go buy a spider plant and yell at that for awhile until you can figure a way to able to back up an arguement with facts and say hi to your 12 year old wife and daughter since they are the same person.

  22. dance fan Says:
    May 24th, 2007 at 8:37 pm

    You are slipping sweetie pie. Now you are not only incoherent, but illiterate as well. Do the words “proof read” mean anything to you? To be honest with you, I couldn’t understand half of what you wrote, as it made no sense either logically or grammatically. Take a valium and try again.

  23. Richman Says:
    May 25th, 2007 at 9:44 am

    OH Prance fan, moron of the ages. Since you can’t read and imagery escapes you, I’ll try to simplify this for you…YOU ARE STUPID!! Go back and get your hooked on phonics and relearn the ABC’s. Get your 12 year old wife to help you. I don’t take valium like you but since you also take viagra, propecia, and prozac, I guess I should be happy that you keep Walgreens and Merck in business.

  24. Tiny dancer Says:
    May 26th, 2007 at 12:24 am

    ok boys, to your corners! both of you need to chill.
    I did read some of richmans post here and I really didnt see what was better or worse than others here.
    There were many racial remarks made by others about Laila and I didnt see dance fan attack them.
    Cant we all just get along?
    How about having an allstar dancing with the stars next year?

  25. dance fan Says:
    May 28th, 2007 at 5:46 am

    tiny dancer, you were not here last year and did not see the things that richman posted then. this is something that goes back awhile. also, you should be able to see how out of control he gets when someone disagrees with him. look at how the attacks on ME get more ridiculous with every posting. he doesn’t even know if he is talking to a man or a woman, and has no idea of anything about me. he simply pulls crap out of the air to throw at someone he doesn’t even know. and that is the point of it. i deliberately bait him to get him to respond and make a fool of himself. he has not disappointed me for two years now. i suspect he will not disappoint next season, either. that is what it is all about. he becomes nearly hysterical with rage, cannot even spell or form a complete sentence in his anger, and generally gets all crazy. it is fun to watch. so either enjoy the entertainment, or don’t read. your choice. it is reasonable payback for all the nasty comments he makes to others. i am about the only one who will bother to respond to him. he needs it, poor thing. nobody else pays any attention to him…. i do it out of charity….

  26. Richman Says:
    May 28th, 2007 at 10:48 pm

    Prance fan, there you go again and again. I think you are both man and woman. Having said that, didn’t you repeatedly say that you would not reply to my posts anymore? I’ve baited you into replying again and again. You are the fool. I’ve never said I would not post as you did, but you can’t even stick to your convictions so if you can’t do it, then stop pretending you can loser. Tiny dancer, if you’ve noticed, Prance fan only criticizes me and not the facts of my posts. The he/she never addresses any of the dance issues, just my opinions. Over 19 million people watched the finale this year but he/she/it hammers me for taping the show last year as you said you did. The he/she/it/dog’s last post was kind of out there and incoherent so I think the drugs are kicking in finally. So Prancer, going to keep posting you loser?

  27. dance fan Says:
    May 29th, 2007 at 1:13 pm

    i never said i would not post. you are delusional! and if you are going to copy everything i say, why not just cut and paste my posts? get your own material. have you ever had an original thought? or a thought at all? i love this. you are such a whacko. and you just keep coming back for more? masochist….

  28. Mirline Says:
    May 31st, 2007 at 12:28 pm

    All of you bashing Laila are idiots and haters. Your ignorance prevents you from seeing how well she’s performed. I mean, the woman deserved the trophy. She came from a strong boxer to a very elegant dancer. Apolo won because he’s a midget and is able to do all type of movements. Joey was second ( he sucks anyway) because he has experience dancing. Laila has never danced before. all she did was knock girls out and keep her championship.
    She was ROBBED and that’s not so hard to see.
    She’s is still the champion. Like daddy, like daughter!

  29. Tiny dancer Says:
    June 1st, 2007 at 11:48 am

    you guys still at it? Getting kind of fun to read. All I really want to say is that after reading some more posts Richman has put dancing comments here and it looks like dance fan only is here to bash richman. still fun to read. I would still like to see Dancing with the all stars or something like that. Anyone else like to see that?

  30. dance fan Says:
    June 2nd, 2007 at 8:39 am

    AGAIN, tiny dancer, i am referring to the comments last season. if you were not here last season, then you did not see the racist remarks this person posted about emmitt smith, and the other insulting things said to people who challenged those racial slurs. since nobody really challenged him this year, because he was not at odds over who won, he did not get into the rare, nasty form he had last season. however, those of us who found the comments past horrific still care about this. there is another site on this forum where it was mentioned earlier.

    anyway, off that and on to response to mirline, i agree with you. i think it would be a great idea to bring back the 1-2-3 winners from each season and have a “dance off” among them. it would be very entertaining, and also, i think they are having a little trouble finding people (stars) to do this show, as it is such a huge commitment away from their real careers. they are definitely getting the “B” or “C” list people now. re: billy ray cyrus, who only seemed to be there to promote his sagging career and try to get people to buy his new CD. anybody else have an opinion, except for richman, who would disagree with me no matter if i said the pope was catholic?

  31. dance fan Says:
    June 2nd, 2007 at 8:41 am

    oops, sorry tiny dancer, you made the post about all star dancing, not mirline. mirline thinks leila should have won. anyway, i agree with that suggestion for an all stars show!

  32. Richman Says:
    June 5th, 2007 at 8:59 am

    Poor, poor Prancing Fanatic, I leave this alone for a few days and YOU still can’t help but to talk about me. You must have the man-crush on me for me to influence your life so much. “The Pope is Catholic” is probably the first thing you’ve ever said that made sense (how original) although the new Pope was a member in Hitler Youth group for a short time. You finally said something about dancing which is good since this site is about DWTS…wait, I take it back since Tiny dancer brought it up first and you just replied to it. Since you seem to like to bash me for liking Mario as a dancer, watch the Alma Awards June 5 where he is dancing with Eva Longoria. Until your brain grows back….

Praise be to my higher power!!! and you love me, too….. i can tell by the way you can’t resist answering every time i post something here. so let’s announce it to everyone about us, ‘kay??? tell me, do you want to change your last name to “fan” or should i change my last name to “man”?? i’ll leave it up to you!!!

  34. Richman Says:
    June 8th, 2007 at 10:32 am

    Prancer, about time you admitted your actual feelings towards me. I feel somewhat honored. Except for the fact that you are an online stalker, every other inch of you is probably nice. There is a support group “Unrequited fans of Richman” meeting in every major city in the USA as well as Canada so if you’re going this week, just mention the code word “Mario” and you will get in at half price and a Karina bobblehead. Who knows? I might just show up. Just wear your 1970 tie-dye shirt that you have on daily so I can recognize you.

  35. dance fan Says:
    June 10th, 2007 at 3:30 pm

    a karina bobblehead? that would mean i was getting the ACTUAL karina! cool! since you always want to talk about the dancing, did you notice how they punished her for her unsportsmanlike conduct last season with her big pouty face when she deservedly lost by giving her billy ray this year! there are many ways to skin a cat! (unfortunately the cat is not going to like any of them). however i thought it was great that she got billy ray, big dumb hick that seemed not interested in doing her. and she was crying all the time because he couldn’t learn anything. she absolutely got a spanking from the show! i loved it. what better way to announce to america that her crap attitude last year was duly noted and dealt with!

    as for you, you are probably a half decent person when you are not being a bigotted idiot, which seems to be always, so ergo, you are not half decent. too bad. but i will go to your meeting. aren’t you right across the hall at the racists anonymous meeting? what step are you on in their 12 step program?? have you apologized to emmitt yet? that will be part of your healing process…

  36. Richman Says:
    June 13th, 2007 at 10:31 am

    I’m glad you finally see the light and decided to go to my program. There is no “racist” meeting across the hall, rather one you might be interested in, Dumbass anonymous. Wait, you are the president, former, current and future member of DA. As far as Karina, it was funny she got Billy Ray. He really stunk up the dance floor…any arguements about that? As bad as Billy Ray was, I think Edyta has gotten the shaft more than any pro on the show by getting Evander, George, and John. She was lucky to get Joey. She will probably get Mini Me from Austin Powers next season.

    Prance Fan, car wrecks are terrible, but interesting and necessary in Nascar. One might say that people NEED to look at something exciting in life, much like the way my posts excite you after you read them. I keep you coming back! Day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year!! Like Agent Smith said in the Matrix, “It is inevitable…”

    June 29th, 2007 at 7:29 am

    this is not a game. this is just you, a sad person, who gets weird gratification out of this, and apparently bonded to my screen character in some odd fashion, as you continue to post here, months after the event the blog was devoted to is over. you are the only one left. is that not a clue for you? it is strange that you are so hooked into this, but not unexplainable, as you are showing classic behavior. i have continued to observe you, and post for you, because i have been writing my doctoral thesis in abnormal psychology on the obsessive behavior of certain personality types and how internet use seems to be a vehicle some of them use. you were a case study. one of many. i logged into several blog sites, observed the behavior of those posting, and identified the “nut cases” for lack of a better word. i then engaged them in their own fashion and documented their responses and escalating levels of paranoia and retaliation to each level of contact. i was particularly interested in racial slurring, bigotry, and self absorbed narcissism, all of which you classically projected to everyone on the blog. i could not have asked for more from you if i had scripted it for you. i was particularly pleased to find you here for two consecutive seasons, because that allowed me to document you over a lengthy period of time. thanks. the paper is finished now. i don’t need to continue to bait you for research purposes any longer. it has been fun, it has been educational, i got an “A”. it is over. i wish you well, and that you find the professional help you need, assuming you ever realize you have a deep seated and profound problem. sorry if you were deceived, but it was nothing personal. i just needed a good subject, and you were one of the best. in fact, you were nearly perfect. thanks for your help.

    i might observe this site next season, just to see if you have made any forward progress, but i won’t be engaging with you in the future.

    the only advice i have for you is to try to be a little more tolerant and kind to people. you have no idea who you might be talking to, and the racial comments, the welfare comments, the gay and lesbian slurs, as well as the other remarks you make, could really hurt someone. you hide behind the anonymity of your computer, but you can be doing damage to others who actually can be sensitive to criticism from strangers. just because someone does not agree with your opinion does not give you the right to insult them, their intelligence, or any aspect of their lives. i didn’t care, because i was deliberately baiting you into it, but i was doing it because i had already seen you attacking others who did NOT provoke you. and you were a stand out in your rudeness. it is not justified, and you really should try to find out why you do that. if you could identify the cause, it might make you a happier person. because you are not one now. those who attack without reason are in some sort of personal pain and lashing out in response to that feeling. find the cause, and you might overcome it. take care of yourself, and good luck.

  42. Richman Says:
    July 1st, 2007 at 12:33 am

    Prancer, You are so full of it that it would take 17 port-o-lets to haul you away. The only class you might get an “A” in is coloring in the lines or felt apples and oranges. Don’t even try to out BS a BS’er. You are just trying to gracefully back away from a fight that you started and can’t finish. I know people like you also…all talk. You are probably out there telling your mate, pets, plants, bartender and hairdresser how mean I was when in fact you were no better…worse because you are one that cannot admit what they are, a hypocrite. You are a perpetual victim..oh, everyone is against me! I’m nice, why are they insulting me? I’ve done nothing wrong (sob,sob). Well Prancer, here is a virtual tissue for your croc tears! You will respond because you in your own little way don’t like to lose, even though you are a loser.
