Tonight, the couples will face off one last time to compete for the judge’s final scores and we’ll learn who will be taking home the Mirrorball trophy! Stay tuned as we update this space with up-to-the-minute news!

The Black Eyed Peas are performing tonight, complete with a rockin’ laser show and autotune. We’re liveblogging the results so that you’ll know who wins the show when it happens! Stay tuned!

The first eliminated party from the show, Mike Catherwood, performed a dance to Unbelievable by EMF. The dance sucked, so you can see why he got the boot early.

Petra Nemcova took to the stage to do a Waltz with her former partner Dmitry Chaplin. Josh Groban performed his song You Raise Me Up while they danced. It was a great dance, I’m still not sure why she got eliminated so quickly.

Kendra Wilkinson took the stage to perform a dance with Louis Van Amstel. She didn’t get eliminated fast enough for my liking. She needs five guys around her so that everyone can’t see how much she sucks as a dancer. Theory.

Sugar Ray Leonard took the stage to perform with his former partner Anna Trebunskaya. He was slow, but still fun-loving in his performance. Chris Jericho also made a comeback performance, and I still think he was voted off too early. Chris also gave a hilarious impression of Bruno Tonioli and it was too funny. What a crack up!

Wendy Williams and Tony Dovolani took the stage and she said all three are winners, but she first thought it would be Hines Ward. The Go Gos performed We Got The Beat for Design A Dance, which featured pro dancers Lacey Schwimmer, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Cheryl Burke and Chelsie Hightower. GO MAKS!

Romeo took the stage with his former partner Chelsie Hightower and they put on an excellent performance. Nice! Why was he eliminated so quickly? Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff took to the dance floor to do one of their favorite dances. He did an excellent job, which leaves us wondering why he isn’t dancing for the Mirrorball trophy.

The competition is on!

Chelsea and Mark are dancing first for their final dance. They’re doing the Viennese Waltz! Her posture is excellent and she’s definitely a winner. What a great dance, good for them! Standing ovation! Len said she is a fantastic dancer and he wishes her all of the luck in the future. Bruno said she’s an echantress and we’re all under her spell. Carrie Ann said it’s because of performances like this that everyone knows who she is. Score: 30 – Total added to last night’s scores: 89/90

Kirstie and Maks are dancing next and they’ve chosen the Cha Cha, which was their very first dance. Kirstie happens to be wearing the same dress that she wore for her first performance on the show. She reportedly had 38 inches taken off of it to be able to wear it tonight. She’s doing a great job tonight! You can tell that she’s come a long way as a dancer. Standing ovation! Bruno said she saved the best for last! He said she’s never done better. Carrie Ann said she salutes her and that she loves her. She saw magic! Len said she has overcome setbacks and has improved her weaknesses and tonight she produced her best dance. Score: 30 – Added to last night’s scores: 84/90

Hines and Kym are taking the stage for the last time to perform their Samba. As always, he’s a fun one to watch and always puts on a great performance. Fantastic! Carrie Ann said the applause are insane and they’re right. She said that Hines is the MVP of the show this season. Len said he brings every dance to life. Bruno said when Hines is out here, “we all fall in love”. Score: 30 – Total from last night’s: 89/90

So who’s going to win the coveted Mirrorball trophy?????

The first couple eliminated tonight, landing them in third place is Chelsea and Mark! So who are the season twelve champions? HINES WARD AND KYM JOHNSON!
