The Final 3 of Dancing with the Stars season 25 are set, and they will take the floor one last time Tuesday night to earn the Mirror Ball Trophy. In addition to the 24-hour fusion challenge, each couple will also perform an encore of their favorite routine of the season.
Ranking the Best and Worst of the DWTS Finals>>>
There are definitely plenty to choose from as Jordan, Lindsey and Frankie have all delivered some very memorable routines. From the early weeks with Latin Night and Most Memorable Year Night to later themes like Halloween Night or A Night at the Movies, they’ve all done some great work.
DWTS Recap: The Final 4 Perform the Freestyles>>>
Here’s a look back at my favorite routine from each of the Final 3, and hopefully one or two of them will be done on the finale.
Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold: Charleston from the Finals
Choosing Jordan and Lindsay’s best routine is no easy feat as they’ve been exceptional all season long. In fact, since week 4, every single one of his individual routines has received at least one 10 from the judges. However, he saved the best for last and really brought it in the Finals.
Who Will Win DWTS Season 25?>>>
The redemption of his Charleston from week 3 was sublime. He had fast footwork, tons of content and a lot of swagger. But what put it over the top is how he made it sexy and smooth, transforming this old-fashioned style into something cool and modern. It represents everything he is.
Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas: Sci-Fi Argentine Tango from A Night at the Movies
Lindsey’s best weapon all season has been her partner and his brilliant choreography. From artistic visuals to insane concepts to simple elegance, Mark has done it all. But nowhere was the marriage of concept and execution better than in this Sci-Fi themed routine.
Ranking All of Mark Ballas’ Finale Freestyles>>>
Taking a cue from Ex Machina, Mark was a mad scientist and Lindsey was his cyborg creation. Her robotic movements were fused flawlessly with the sexual intensity of an Argentine Tango, creating a distinct atmosphere. Not only was it Mark’s best concept and choreography, but also Lindsey’s best embodiment of the character.
Frankie Muniz and Witney Carson: Contemporary from Halloween Night
Frankie was a surprise from early on, coming into the competition with a positive attitude and a hard work ethic. He tried his best, despite being plagued by self-doubt. His confidence seemed to take off towards the end, with his crowning achievement being on Halloween Night, where he topped the leaderboard with two perfect scores.
Why Frankie Should Win>>>
His individual performance that night, a Contemporary routine inspired by horror films like Scream, was a revelation. Frankie was undeniably creepy, moving with a sinister intent. But the routine itself was breathtaking, telling a story through dance unlike anything we’ve seen on DWTS before.
