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.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
