Dancing with the Stars' final three face off one last time before the best of the best is crowned. Did Shawn or Kelly win their second Mirrorball? Or did Melissa claim her first? Plus: DanceCenter is finally back! Look back at the sexiest outfits from Dancing this season Guys, we're almost there! Stay with me. So we agree it's down to Shawn and Melissa, yes? (Sorry, Kelly, thanks for playing!) Who would've thought a month ago that it's not completely in the bag for Shawn? But the show seems hell-bent on propping up Melissa and Tony ever since Sabrina bit it. They're great and I completely support them as winners, but I wouldn't say they were 3.5 points from perfection the past four weeks, which is what their scores through Monday would have you believe. (After last night, they officially dethroned Shawn and Derek for the highest cumulative score and season average.) Or you Shawn and Derek optimists could argue that this is just their way of creating draaama and a tight contest. And we've still got one more dance to go. After a cast opening number choreographed by Lacey and the freestyle encore by Shawn and Derek, the three finalists pick their Instant Dance styles and songs. They have 20 minutes to prepare. Kelly and Val will jive to "Cat & Mouse." Melissa and Tony will samba to "Life Is a Highway" and Shawn and Derek will cha-cha to "Respect." Totally coincidental that Melissa is doing a samba for the second night in a row and just happened to pick a mini-Mirrorball that was accidentally opened, right? #sarcasm for more... http://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/dancing-with-the-stars/episode-19-season-15/191470#recap

I really do know what day it is...lol. And honestly those are suppose to be links you can click on. I am SO happy that Mellissa and Tony won....he so completely deserved it. And to be honest if it's Derek's last season I'm okay with that...now I really wish he would take Mark with him. I like both Tristan and Val and it would be nice to see someone else shine.

I stopped watching this show a few weeks ago, but I was interested to see who won.   I was actually shocked to hear that Shawn didn't win.   I just thought the judges were pretty biased towards her.   I am not a huge Melissa fan, but I'm happy for Tony that they got the win.
