Dancing With The Stars - Finale!

By Natasha Oreshkina, co-owner of the Fred Astaire Dance Studios in Syracuse, New York

I will talk about the freestyle competition performed on Monday night before getting on to the finale.

Erin Andrews & Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Erin and Maks performed a contemporary style dance along with beautiful music. I didn't understand the idea of the bed on the floor. Their movements were too busy. I couldn't see the dance in their performance.

Evan Lysacek & Anna Trebunskaya
Evan and Anna performed a rock and roll dance. It was dynamic and looked good on the floor. However, they didn't dance together and lost their connection.

Nicole Scherzinger & Derek Hough
Their dance was the best. They connected different dance styles and the mix was very interesting.

On Tuesday night's finale, Nicole looked like a champion. She had confidence. Evan, while performing his Quickstep, did not look so great. His feet were flat and he lost the lightness of the dance. The Quickstep should be light and you shouldn't drop your heel down. He needed to show the rhythm of the dance in his feet and he didn't.

Winner: Nicole Scherzinger! I was glad to be right about Nicole!
