It all comes down tonight’s Dancing with the Stars Finale!  After they perform one more dance, that was given to the three couples in the running for the Mirror Ball Trophy shortly after last night’s episode, combined with the at home vote, we will know who will take home the trophy in the most hotly contested finale in the 14 seasons of the smash hit ballroom dance series!

A look at last night makes it a very tight race to the finish line:  Latin soap star and heartthrob William Levy and his partner, Cheryl Burke were first up with their do-over Cha-Cha, and then for their final number of the night the Freestyle, buttons were a poppin and hips were grinding on the very sexy Levy!  The judges gave Levy and Burke a perfect 30 for their Cha-Cha and a 29 for their Freestyle.

Katherine Jenkins the opera singer, and her dance partner Mark Ballas were given the Paso-Doble to redo by the judges for the final round and the judges went nuts with Bruno Tonioli yelling, “Technical Brilliance!”  Needless to say the duo scored a perfect 30 for their dance, and then topped themselves in the Freestyle routine!  Jenkins even sang, and then she and Ballas launched into a melting pot of a Lindy hop swing dance! Judge Carrie Ann Inaba yelped after, “The dance of a champion!” Once again Jenkins and Ballas scored a perfect 30 leaving them at the top of the leaderboard at the end of the night’s competition.

But then there is Green Bay Packer all-star wide receiver, Donald Driver and his partner Peta Murgatroyd, who wanted to pull out all the stops to give Driver his first perfect score of the season!  First up, they had to performer a redo of the Argentine Tango.  And, even though the judges all loved the performance, judge Len Goodman still refused to give Driver a perfect 10   So the duo left the dance floor with a 29!

However, then came the Freestyle in which Driver delivered the performance of the night with his original Texas country-style routine dressed in the green and gold of the Green Bay Packers and complete with a football field projected on the dance floor!  And with that, Driver won over the in-studio crowd and the judges and received for the first time in the competition, a perfect score of 30!

So who should win Dancing with the Stars tonight?  Levy, Jenkins or Driver? Let us know who you think will win and who you are rooting for! Watch Driver’s fantastic Freestyle below!  And don’t forget to watch the Results Show tonight on ABC.

I don’t watch ABC anymore since they cancelled the soaps, but GO DD!!! Love Donald Driver and my husband and I actually peeked in on DWTS one night just to see how he was doing. Hope he goes all the way. He’s more than just a great football player, he is an awesome and inspirational human being. I almost watched ABC just to see him;)

They all did really well. It’s hard to choose a winner. Too bad they can’t all win.
