One Life to Live and High School Musical star, Corbin Bleu has been dazzling audiences each week along with his dance partner, Karina Smirnoff on this season’s Dancing with the Stars! But, will it be enough dazzle to win the couple the Mirror Ball Trophy next Tuesday night in the final night of the two-part season finale?

After 10 weeks of entertaining, stylized dancing from Corbin Bleu & Karina Smirnoff, Jack Osbourne & Cheryl Burke, Bill Engvall & Emma Slater and Amber Riley & Derek Hough, only one couple will be crowned Dancing with the Stars Champions. These four remaining couples will have one last opportunity to impress the judges and the viewers on Monday November 25 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), concluding with the Season Finale, Tuesday November 26 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

On Monday (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET): Dancing with the Stars season 16 Champion Kellie Pickler returns to open up the show with her country hit “Little Bit Gypsy,” accompanied by the pro dancers. The four remaining couples will then compete in three rounds of dance. In the first round, each couple will take on the “Judges Pick” and repeat a selected routine from earlier in the season. In round two, the couples will be challenged to a Samba relay, where each pair dances to a different section of the same song. The Samba relay will be accompanied by 90’s hip hop group TLC who will perform their classic hit “No Scrubs.” In the last round, and one of the biggest competitive dances of the season, the couples take on a supersized freestyle featuring special effects, additional dancers and unexpected surprises. At the end of night, one couple will be eliminated based on the previous weeks’ viewer votes, combined with the judges’ scores from Monday night.  

In the two-hour Season Finale on Tuesday (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET):  In the last element of competition, the couples will perform a new routine as part of a “24 Hour Fusion Challenge.” During Monday night’s show, the remaining couples will choose songs for their competitors that fuse two contrasting dance styles and they’ll all have less than 24 hours to prepare that dance for judges’ points the following night. The finale will feature performances by Lady Antebellum who will perform their new single “Compass,” and Enrique Iglesias will sing his current hit “Heart Attack.” The entire celebrity cast returns including: Elizabeth Berkley Lauren, Brant Daugherty, Keyshawn Johnson, Christina Milian, Bill Nye, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Leah Remini and Valerie Harper who will dance with partner Tristan MacManus to a version of “What a Wonderful World” by singer Colbie Caillat. In addition, Ylvis will perform their hit single “The Fox,” accompanied by select celebrity and pro dancers. At the end of the night, the public vote from Monday night will be combined with the judges’ scores from both nights to crown the Season 17 Champion.

Viewers may cast their votes for their favorite teams via phone on Monday nights during and up to 60 minutes after the end of the Dancing with the Stars broadcast in each time zone. Online voting at www.ABC.com and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/dancingwiththestars is open for 24 hours, beginning from the start of each episode on the East Coast at 8:00 p.m., ET/5:00 p.m., PT and closing at 8:00 p.m., ET/5:00 p.m., PT on Tuesday evenings. For the final week, on Monday, November 25, online voting will open for 15 hours, beginning from the start of the episode on the East Coast at 8:00 p.m., ET/5:00 p.m., PT and closing at 11:00 a.m., ET/8:00 a.m., PT the next day. A custom Facebook app lets fans vote, share whom they voted for and say why, as well as see whom friends voted for.

So, who are you rooting for as we head into the finale? Corbin, Amber, Bill or Jack?  Weigh-in!

I am definitely team Corbin and Karina, they have consistently been dancing so beautifully together, and they bring so much excitement and talent to the dance floor as well. That being said, Jack Osbourne actually embodies what this show is about. He began as a dancing novice for sure, and with hard work and dedication each week, he has come quite a long way, so I am so glad that he and Cheryl are also in the finals. Amber and Derek are a very formidable team as well, Amber can certainly move, and she and Derek also wow the audience… Read more »

This season has definitely been strange. If you told me week one that Bill E would be in the finals I would have not believed you. If we go by talent then the race should be between Corbin and Amber, but if we are going with the heart I would not be surprised if Jack won— if Bill wins— then next season they should ask Toronto mayor Rob Ford to dance because obviously the world has gone crazy.

Derek and Amber should win. with Jack coming in second. Corbin should not be there he has professional dance experience and it would not be fair if he won.

Now that Leah is gone I am probably rooting for Corbin the most. Will depend how he dances and how I feel as to whether I’ll vote.

I agree! Who really gives a rat’s rear-end about DWTS on this page other than the fact that from time to time soap stars have appeared. Now that both One Life to Live and ALL MY CHILDREN have been, well, at least unofficially “cancelled” or put on a back-burner with Prospect Park, I wonder if the rights will revert back to ABC-TV and if so, I hope that at least one of the shows return in a Half hour format. Over at CBS, “Bold and the Beautiful” is only a half hour, (and doing great, though I don’t follow it)… Read more »

I don’t watch ABC (other than GH) but I hope Corbin wins. I thoroughly enjoyed his work as Jeffrey on OLTL 2.0. I remember what a talented dancer he was on the HSM movies I watched with my kids.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Diamont on Y&R the week of February 8th,

Diamont told SOD on his Y&R return, “I had not ever considered that I would be part of a crossover, just because my character was so well-defined at Y&R.”

Comment below.  But first, check out this video released by CBS Daytime of some other crossovers moments over the year between Y&R and B&B.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.
