It’s time – this is it – the finals for “Dancing With the Stars”.   Two routines and the winner walks away with what is called the Mirror Ball trophy.

I have never been a big DWTS fan but this year it was unusually good.


The 3 finalists include reality star Rob Kardashian, TV personality Ricki Lake and Army veteran and actor J.R. Martinez and any one of them could walk away with the trophy.  They will each perform 2 numbers on Monday’s final dance-off and the new champion will be named Tuesday.

Lake and professional partner Derek Hough have been front-runners throughout the season, consistently earning high marks from the judges. Martinez and partner Karina Smirnoff have also ranked high with the judges, occasionally topping the leaderboard.  Kardashian has steadily improved under the instruction of partner Cheryl Burke, and the pair finished in second place during the show’s semifinal competition.

The scores by the judges combined with votes from viewers determine which contestant is dismissed every week.  The star with the highest total of combined points will win the contest. 

Excellent entertainment.
