Couple: Nicole Scherzinger & Derek Hough
Of the competitors left, Nicole and Derek have got to be our favorite. You might recognize her as the front kitty from the Pussycat Dolls, and he’s Lil’ Kim’s old partner.
Separately, they’re amazing dancers who also have a talent for the mic (we hear Derek’s part of a rock band in his spare time.) Together, they have pulled off some of the most impressive routines of the season with moves sharp enough to cut yourself on!
With those credentials and their drive for perfection, it’s no surprise that they’ve had a solid hold on the #1 spot this season on “DWTS.” Their freestyle was by far our favorite routine of the night, despite a major misstep right at the end.
