Dancing With The Stars: Who will win?

DWTS finalists
Down at Dancing With The Stars HQ they are prepping the ballroom for finals week. Tomorrow night we'll know who is taking home the big mirror ball. But there's no fun in waiting for it to actually happen. We should just go ahead and crown a champion right now. Our pals over at AOL took a poll of bloggers that cover the show, and that one had Lance coming out on top.

If I have learned anything in my time here at TV Squad though, it's that the TVS readers can pick a DWTS champion. Last season some 75% of you had Kristi Yamaguchi taking home the trophy. So, before we all get settled in to watch the drama unfold, let's take a poll. After the jump, I'll make my case for a winner, and open up the voting for the TV Squad champion.

I picked Lance & Lacey for the AOL poll, but I added that you could make a case for any of the couples to win. Warren & Kym have great fan support, and athletes do seem to have an in where this contest is concerned. Brooke & Derek have been the most consistent performers throughout the season, and they certainly have the stuff to knock down some 10s in the finals performances. But Lance & Lacey are coming on at just the right time. Last week they were clearly tops in the dancing, and I'm betting that we see that again for the finals. I expect them to blow everyone away with their freestyle.

It's the big finale. Who is taking home the mirrorball?
Lance & Lacey368 (37.3%)
Brooke & Derek459 (46.5%)
Warren & Kym160 (16.2%)

the judges have always known the brooke and derek would win the finals....even though they say throughout the entire season that all the couples have done extremely well and one outdoes the other....but look at the final three...the judges wean on warren sapp, why because he is superbowl champ...so they figure he doesnt need a win....but what about the others......we all know in fact that it will come down to the first one with high hopes and dreams cuz she is a model.....why have a show that once you see someone perform and know automatically that couple wins.despite the others....

Well here we go. I really hope Brook wins this. Lance did a hip hop dance and here is where the problem comes in. He was scored way too high for that dance because he has taken lessons and did hip hop dancing on stage when he was performing in that band. Also, Hip-hop is not a ballroom dance so it should not have been allowed. This is certainly not fair to the other competitors. If Lance wins, it will be a sham. If Lance wins, the blame is solely on the shoulders of the Producers who booked him and Toni Braxton both of whom had previous dance experience. Warren Sapp has come the furthest in the competition, but he is not as good as Brook Burke. She has been the most consistent in her dancing and Warren has come the farthest and is extremely entertaining.

As far as the pros are concerned, I agree with the comment that Lacey seems to be doing what she wants and not fitting in with the guidelines of the show. But both she and Lance are going to be on tour with DWTS road show. Guess he needed the steady job.

As much of a fan base Warren Sapp has it is nowhere close to what Emmitt Smith had or Jerry Rice had a few seasons back. It might be closer to Jason Taylor, but Jason Taylor had one thing going for him, he could really dance. I think this time it will come down to performance more than fan support and Warren's feet will be his downfall. If the fans don't catch it the judges will and they count for half of the vote.

I really think that Brooke and Derek will win it. I think Brooke's dancing and skills and Derek's popularity will boost them to the win, unless she really messes up tonight. I think she was lucky last week to mess up because she was able to see what she did wrong and gain from it. You don't want your worst performance to be on finale night. Lance and Lacey are great but Brooke has been the constant this season and overall really deserves. If Lance and Lacey pull off a routine of a lifetime then maybe but otherwise Brooke and Derek have this one.

Lance & Lacey deserve it so much! Not only was Lance very gawky & awkward when he started, but this is Lacey's first season on the show!

Not further going into the times Lance has been in the bottom due to her choices in not following the dance guidelines, I don't want Lance to win because of Lacey. She may be new to the show, but she has an authority problem with the times the judges have given them criticism (and most of the time they were ones that would improve him.) Lance and her winning would taint what it really takes to win in this competition.
