The Dancing With The Stars finale has kicked off – and one contestant is leading the way with a perfect score for their two dances.
Jennifer Grey and professional partner Derek Hough go into the second finale show in first place with the scores, but the Dirty Dancing actress said she wasn’t thinking about winning yet. ” I think it’s bad juju,” she said after earning a perfect 60 points from judges Bruno Tonioli, Len Goodman and Carrie Ann Inaba.
Actor Kyle Massey finished Monday’s episode in second place with 56 points out of a possible 60, while Bristol Palin landed in third with 52 points.
Kyle and his professional partner, Lacey Schwimmer, said they’ve been having so much fun dancing together, they can hardly believe they actually have a chance at the title. “We have a one in three shot,” Lacey said.
“It’ll be crazy if we win,” Kyle added. “I’ll be excited. I’ll probably do the worm again.”
The 19-year-old Disney Channel star did the retro dance move during his freestyle routine on Monday’s show.
Bristol said it was challenging to overcome the flurry of media coverage that erupted when she outlasted Brandy on the hit ABC show, prompting some viewers to question the veracity of the show’s voting system.
Though she said on Monday’s episode “there’s lots of haters out there that are waiting for me to fail,” the 20-year-old single mum said after the show that she’d shrugged off her detractors and felt she deserved to win.
“We’ve been working our b***s off,” she said.
:: The Dancing With The Stars finale will be shown in the UK on Friday at 9pm on Watch.
