The end is here – 'Dancing with the Stars' to crown winner tonight

Going in to Monday's Dancing With The Stars finals, ESPN's Erin Andrews was the long shot to win. Now she's tied for first place with Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. Olympian Evan Lysacek is lagging behind.

All three celebs performed two dances, one of which was the freestyle – the time to pull out all the stops. Erin started with a samba and then chose a sultry barefoot dance involving a bed for her freestyle. While the judges weren't crazy about it, she wound up with a 55 for the night.

Nicole danced a rumba but it included a lift which nicked her score a bit. Her zippy freestyle wowed the judges enough to get her a 55 for the night.

Evan waltzed through his first dance, but was off a little bit on his high-energy freestyle. He's got a 52 going into Tuesday's finale, which will include Kate Gosselin, Jake Pavelka dancing with fiancee Vienna Girardi and Pamela Anderson. The three celebs will dance an Argetine Tango and someone will go home with a lovely mirror ball trophy.

Very disappointing to see Nicole win. DWTS is becoming the same farce that the Bachelor is. They brought her on the show knowing full well she is a skilled dancer and did everything within their power to see that she won. They lowered Evan's scores the last couple of nights to ensure Nicole would win. Frankly, I don't even know who the woman is and I have no idea why DWTS thinks they need to select the winner for us, not to mention selecting the winner before the competition really even begins.

All finalists were great and deserved to be there.
Something bothered me about the judges at the end , anybody who has been watching DWTS for a while clearly saw that the last dances were 10's for both teams , one just had the feeling that they wanted to make sure that Nicole won and then for Len to say that she was the one who should win before the other couple even had their dance , was tasteless and almost mean.
It left a wonderful and entertaining show with a phony ending.

Nicole is a TRUE ARTIST; yes, she is in the Pussycatdolls, but she is not a professional dancer, like others in the group; she is a lead singer of the band; so, lets not mix things up; we have to admit the fact that she did a great job and gave a number of outstanding performances during the show; Nicole is a stunning beauty, a talented artist, a great performer, and with her partner, professional trainer Derek, she learned fast and worked hard, and results were breathtaking! Nicole deserved this victory! God Bless Her!
