It all comes down to this! The final four contestants for Dancing With The Stars had one LAST chance to show America what they were made of last night, and they definitely all brought it!
In the final performance episode, each team did one dance routine of their choosing along with a freestyle. But they also shook things up a little bit with a cha-cha relay, where each duo performed one right after the other in a seamless routine and were ranked from first to last!
Zendaya and Val Chmerkovskiy brought their A game as they scored not one but TWO perfect scores for their freestyle and their samba, AND they came in first place in the cha-cha relay adding five extra points to their flawless night!
The Disney starlet and her partner were the clear frontrunners at the end of the night, but Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough didn't give them ANY breathing room as they also earned TWO perfect scores for their dance routines! However, they fell one measly point short after getting second place in the cha-cha relay.
Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas also had an impressive night and put on a very sexy freestyle performance that included a little bit of pole dancing! Apparently the judges liked what they saw because they got a perfect score for the routine!
Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff were the low team of the night after coming in last place for the cha-cha relay, but they still managed to pull off a pretty impressive 27 out of 30 for both of their dance routines! Not bad for last place!
From first to last, ALL of the teams did an amazing job! But as we said before, it was all about Zendaya and Val, and NOT just because of their perfect scores!
Just hours before the show began, Val sustained a pretty serious injury when Zendaya accidentally elbowed him in the eye! OUCHIE!! Apparently, it was so bad that the bleeding wouldn't stop and they were almost considering replacing him with another dancer at the last moment!
But as they say in show biz, the show must go on! And it certainly did, because not only did Val look good out there, he and his partner were absolutely FLAWLESS!
So who will go home with the Mirror Ball trophy? Will it be Val and Zendaya for their perfect night? Or will another team pull off the upset??
