Favorites:  The finale is always one of my favorite weeks because we get to see everyone dance again and almost everyone is having fun.  Loved Carson’s Vogue routine!!!  It was wonderful to see Chynna nail the Tango this time around (she left too soon, I think).  It was great to see Chaz’s Samba again, this time with Buddy dancing along–so much fun!  David’s routine was also a blast.

I always love seeing the Troupe dancers.  I would watch a show just to see the pros dance.

As far as the competition went, I thought the couples chose strong routines to repeat for the finals.  I would have liked J.R. & Karina to choose their Rumba or Argentine Tango instead of the Jive but that’s mainly because the Jive isn’t one of my favorite dances.  Both J.R. and Rob did well in the Instant Samba.  *While I hate the pressure placed on the celebrities to perform any sort of dance, I do think it works well for the semi-finals or finals stages; it makes it easier to see who’s the better dancer.

Question:  Len said that Rob had the best footwork of any male celebrity ever.  Really?  Okay, I don’t have a ballroom background so I don’t know what to watch for as well as Len, but really?  I thought Mario Lopez and Gilles Marini were far better.  I also think both should have won the Mirror Ball trophies but that’s another story.

And the Winner Is?:  JR.  I’ve been torn between Ricki and JR this season but he won me over with his freestyle.  I did hate to see Ricki receive 3rd instead of 2nd–I think several strong performances outweigh a few good ones.  Just my opinion–it was an excellent Finals Week!
