Finale time! Which means approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes of filler content and commercials and maybe 30 minutes of actual dancing.
The opening sequence is a lot like the one that opened the first episode of the season, with everybody making...

The couples are introduced from different parts of the ballroom and each couple has to do an "opening dance move." It's silly, and yet still fun.
Amber Riley & Derek Hough
Amber's now got injuries in both knees, poor thing. I bet they wish...

First off, congratulations to Derek Hough for his Emmy win Sunday night in the choreography category.
The show opens with a routine from the pros, and there's Derek front and center. I guess unlike football players he doesn't get the night off....

Hello, darlings. We're back in the ballroom, this time with a bunch of new dancers. That All-Star season had its moments, but was kind of a dud overall.
Lordie. Someone's given Barbara Barrie's hair to Kellie Pickler. (Relevant fact about Barrie: She'...

Amy Watts is off for a birthday dinner tonight, at a joint too classy to have a TV above the bar (two Manhattans and she gets all CAPSLOCK!, three and she loves spats).
Reality sets in! Week two begins.
Grand entrance: No eliminations last week, so...

Jacoby Jones entered tonight's “Dancing with the Stars” finale in fourth place. Bruno Tonioli reiterates the concern that Jacoby’s freestyle, with its large-scale production, overshadowed Jacoby himself. Len Goodman, however, has nothing...

So, tonight we find out who’s making it into next week’s finale! (It’s also the 300th episode of "Dancing with the Stars.")
And this is the next to last results show I’ll ever recap, given the announcement that in the fall, there...

Tonight is the first night the couples will do two full dances (where one is not a dance-off or a group dance). During the staircase introductions, Jacoby is wearing a cowboy hat. I can't wait to see what that means for their routine.
Also, today is Tom...

Results show! When they're down to this few couples, there's more time for filler. Yay! Filler! I don't even like DoubleStuf Oreos, y'all.
What this means is we get a troupe performance right off the bat, that isn't even themed to anything, other than,...

Last week was "Prom Night" and mercifully Wynonna went home. Tonight is "The Best Year of Your Life," and I'm already prepared to feel decrepit and ancient when Aly and Zendaya pick from their limited number of years.
During the staircase introductions,...

Tonight's gimmick on Dancing with the Stars is that each pro/am couple will dance alongside a pro couple during their routine. The pro couple will dance first, then the pro/am couple will join them for 15 seconds of synchronized choreography. The pro...

The show opens with Tom and Brooke alone on the stage, acknowledging the tragic events Boston today. I understand the need to address it, and I'm also glad to have my silly dancing show to distract me from the awfulness.
The show opens with the pros...
