Ugh. Disney songs and Donny Osmond. This is not going to be my favorite night. They've given the show the traditional Disney opening, with a mirror ball behind Cinderella's castle. The pros start the night with a medley of Disney songs. Donny Osmond is...

Tonight is partner switch night and Julianne Hough is a guest judge. Maybe she'll snark on Mark Ballas some more. I loved that.
The opening number has the pros dancing while the stars make their entrances one-by-one, without partners. Drew is in a...

Last week, Diana Nyad and Sean Avery got the boot. Please, please let's put Billy Dee out of his misery this week.
The guest judge is Robin Roberts. LOVE HER. It's also "tell your sob story/backstory" night. DON'T LOVE THAT.
Uh oh, Billy Dee Williams...

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...

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...

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....

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 night was Country Night and I still can't get that chicken and train song out of my head. Curses.
Len praises Melissa's and Sabrina's performances, but asks for Apolo and Karina to perform an encore of their Viennese waltz.
Tom says that because of...

It's classical night, which means a whole lot of songs I'll recognize but not know the name of. Oh, look, it's an exaggeratedly expressive violinist and some chicks in Marie Antoinette garb. Never change, DWTS, never change. DUDES IN BREECHES AND...
