Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – It’s been 10 sensational weeks of “Dancing with the Stars,” and just three couples remain.
The show's two-part Season Finale began Monday, as the couples were given one last chance to impress the judges. On Tuesday, one of those couples will be crowned the winner.
Dance partners Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd; Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas; and William Levy and Cheryl Burke remain in the competition. Each of them performed an old routine chosen by the judges, as well as a new freestyle dance of their choice during the finals on Monday.
Levy and Burke seduced the judges with a hot and steamy Latin-inspired routine that Len called "too predictable," but they still came out with a perfect score.
Then, swinging their way to perfection, Jenkins and Ballas broke out a swing-inspired number that Carrie Ann called the “dance of a champion.”
And finally, Driver and Murgatroyd did a country-infused freestyle dance that definitely got the judges' and the crowd's attention. Bruno called it a “country inspired triumph.”
The season wraps up during the finale on Tuesday at 9 p.m. on NewsChannel 9, as each couple will present their last dance – a 24-hour challenge, in which they have 24 hours to pair their dance style of choice to music given to them by the judges.
In the two-hour finale on Tuesday, each of the season’s eliminated couples will reunite to perform some of the most memorable routines. Special musical performances by Gladys Knight and Kelly Clarkson will add to the excitement.
