'Dancing With The Stars' season finale: Driver, Levy, Jenkins mum on last dances


The race is too close to call. But two dances. On Monday night, they'll all dance twice. Before they get to the always-fun freestyle, they'll perform a dance decided on by the judges. The dance is one the judges believe will show improvement over the course of the competition. The couples are allowed to include new music and new choreography.

Levy and partner Cheryl Burke will Cha Cha, Driver and partner Peta Murgatroyd will perform the Argentine Tango, and Jenkins and partner Mark Ballas will dance the Paso Doble.

For Jenkins and Ballas, the Paso Doble was their lowest-scoring round. After last week's twinge-inducing moment during her last dance, she says her back is fine and she will perform at 100 percent.

The second dance will be what's come to be a highlight for "Dancing" fans. In the past 14 seasons, we've seen some mind-blowing freestyles from the finalists.

"It's going to be very surprising" Murgatroyd said. "It's going to be filled with lots of tricks, lots of lifts and I don't want to give too much away, but you're going to see Donald in a totally different light and he's going to surprise everybody."

Levy said he was unsure of what his partner had in store.

"I don't even know what the freestyle is," Levy said. "All I know is that Cheryl had to go to work on it right now."

Ballas has been in the finals before. He says he knows what it takes.

"Just going to try to blow it out of the box," he said.

Try to get some specifics out of these folks? Forget about it.

The last showdown begins at 8 p.m. on ABC7.
