Update: After several (and I do mean several) heartfelt reunions, impressive dance routines, and guest performances, Season 14’s winner of DWTS was finally announced. While William Levy came in a respectable third place, Katherine Jenkins managed to place second in the competition, making football pro Donald Driver the official winner and rightful owner of the Mirrorball trophy. All three of these couples deserved to win given their exceptional talent, but it was great to see Driver praised for all his hard work throughout the season. Those football players really know how to cut a rug. Touchdown!
Earlier: Okay, everyone, we knew the end was near, but in just a few short hours Dancing With the Stars‘ fourteenth season will come to an end and fans will be forced to find another source of entertainment to fill up their Monday and Tuesday night time slot. But before we hang up our dancing shoes for the summer, there’s still one more performance to enjoy before a winner is crowned and given the highly coveted Mirrorball trophy.
As I mentioned during last night’s round of performances, each couple was given 24 hours to put together a new routine for Tuesday night’s results show. And since these contestants are usually given a whole week to learn a new routine, it will be interesting to see what they’ll be able to pull off with such little notice.
But regardless if they succeed or fail, only one couple will be able to walk away a winner. We’ve dreaded this day since the moment we became familiar with the Katherine Jenkins’ Welsh Wiggle and witnessed William Levy and Donald Driver in all their shirtless glory. We love all three of these contestants, so it’s impossible to decide who really deserves the trophy more. Meryl Streep had it easy — this is the ultimate Sophie’s Choice. Only one point separates these pairs on the leaderboard and the talent is more equal than I’ve ever seen on a finale.
So the only question that remains is — what will America’s final answer be? Who will they deem Mirrorball-worthy? Share your predictions in the comments below and check back here later tonight the results!
