This finale is splendid so far. The previous contestants are doing dances. Drew dances with Anna and with his young daughter, simply endearing. She's wearing this little tutu--every girl's dream. Both partners do variations on hoisting her in the air, where she flails happily.
Helio shows up, and he reminds me why I love him so much. He's so nimble and easy on his feet, and that smile--very apt that he was named for the sun. He's with his partner Chelsie, who if I heard it correctly is asking him why, if he lives in Brazil, he speaks Portuguese (presumably instead of Brazilian....).
I realize how attached we get to the contestants and their pros through the years. It's clever of the show not to set up rivalries the way they do on shows like Survivor or even Project Runway. We get a friendly vibe from these folk, and it makes us happy to see them again, even across several seasons.

I am too, though I'd have been equally happy with any of the three results. A wonderful group of finalists, and it was great to see the Fierce Five for an encore. Wonder whose idea that was? Such a clever inspiration for a final dance.
Why doesn't someone figure out how to make a dance movie using Derek's choreography as well as Derek himself?

I'm so happy for Tony!
And the others didn't do too badly either. They all came out looking wonderful, both the pros and the contestants.

Definitely one of the more enjoyable finales for multiple reasons. During the prior season, it was 3 hours of mostly recap. This season, the recaps were kept to a minimum, new #'s from the all-stars, etc.
I"m glad for Tony on the win. I do think that some people voted more because they wanted Tony to win and some might've voted anti-Derek/Shawn. Regardless, all 3 finalists were justifiably in the top 3.
