'Dancing with the Stars' Recap: The Performance Finale


Up to this point, the biggest surprise of Dancing with the Stars Season 16 has been how rigidly it has proceeded according to expectations: each elimination has been a predictable result of scores and charisma, with nary a bombshell in the bunch. That changes tonight: with a top four this close, banality is no longer an option.

This race is way too evenly matched to call, but that won't stop me from calling it: the Mirror Ball Trophy is going to Kellie. Jacoby has been fun, but his technical shortcomings have left him about a point below the others on average. Aly has shown incredible range and performance ability, but she doesn't command the same rabid fan base as an Olympian as her entertainment industry peers. Zendaya has often been toe-to-toe with Kellie, but the fact that she had prior professional dance experience has left a bad taste with some.
