Kyle Massey proved he’s in it to win it last night on “Dancing With the Stars.”
When “Dancing with the Stars" kicked off this season, no one realistically expected to Kyle to make it to the finals—not even Kyle himself!
“When I started this competition, I just wanted to get past week one,” the Disney star admitted. Now that’s he’s made it to the final three, he’s on a mission to win. “I want that trophy bad.”
Over the weeks, we’ve seen that this kid has more tricks than a magician and more pull than a magnet! This week, though, he worked harder than ever to show everyone why he deserves to be the last man standing.
“Kyle knows that not only do his performances have to be awesome, but his technique has to be on-point,” Lacey said. “He is all business this week.”
When Kyle hit the floor for his redemption Foxtrot, he impressed us more than he has in weeks. His frames were amazing and check out his footwork! He looked so much more grown up in his first dance of the night, and the routine really showed off his growth as a dancer.
Judges Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli had nothing but great things to say about Kyle’s Foxtrot, but judge Carrie Ann Inaba thought he could have done better. She thought it lacked Kyle’s classic charm. Whether they loved it or hated it, Kyle and Lacey got 27 points from the judges.
Kyle pumped up the personality factor for his freestyle dance to “The Tootsieroll.” He was all over the place, hopping from one end of the ballroom to the other—and he even threw in the Worm for good measure. We weren’t quite sure what to expect from the Disney star, but this was perfect for him.
Don’t believe us? Ask the judges, who gave him 29 points for his amazingly entertaining routine.
We won’t know whether Kyle won mirrorball trophy until tonight (ABC airs “Dancing With the Stars: the Results” at 9 p.m.), but he did earn a new title: Carrie Ann dubbed him the Fresh Prince of Dancing With the Stars.
