We are down to the final four!

Amber Riley and Derek Hough
Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff
Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke
Bill Engvall and Emma Slater

Maks seemed to think that the trophy is Amber's to lose. What do you think?

Who will be eliminated next Monday (or maybe at the beginning of Tuesday night?) and who will be the final 3?

Will Corbin feel the bite of being "almost a pro?" Will Bill's fans put him in the competition?

I think I would like to see Jack win it. And I am ready for Bill to go...

I will be really surprised if Jack or Bill win, because they're not nearly as good as Corbin or Amber. I'm leaning towards Amber, but I really like watching both her and Corbin.

Did I hear them talk last night about jacks MS symptoms getting worse? I guess what concerns me for him is maybe he's overdoing it and causing him to have a MS flare up. I do wish they'd stop talking about the MS being a death sentence because it's not always. I know two people who have had it for almost 30 years and are doing well.

Just a thought.

Anyone but Corbin. His jazz dance last week was one of the best I've seen. However, this is and always has been based partly on popularity or Tom wouldn't say "vote for your FAVORITE" instead of "vote for the BEST." I love Bill and his last dance was so much better than the his first. I would love to see Amber or Jack win. Amber is better than Jack and Jack is better than Bill. Any of those 3 would make me happy though as they are what this show is suppose to be about.

I'm just glad Leah is gone...should have been sent home a long time ago. It would be fun if Jack wins.

I've been an Amber fan since day one! I think she's got a bigger share of votes than Corbin to be honest. It all comes down to viewer votes. I am just glad that Leah is gone as well as Christina and Elizabeth. I don't think Bill will win but it's been fun to see him perform. I would be ok with Jack winning as well although I think Amber is a better dancer than Jack.

I'd LOVE to see Amber win. I really think this season will be Derek's last as he has a movie coming out in the Spring and many exciting projects ahead but with him...never say never...he said he wasn't coming back after the All-Star season and then he did. Plus he also won an EMMY!!

I'm so sick of the stupid decisions made to eliminate people who can dance and keep people who can't. Maybe they will call back some loser from a first round a few years ago and award him/her the mirror ball. At this point, I don't much care.

I'm with you OSU on the Derek love. I would be very happy to have Jack win. But - let's all admit that Derek is just the best !

I'm hoping for an Amber win too Corbin was a trained dancer before he even set foot on the DWTS stage. I loved how well Bill danced his second dance last night

And I'm not a huge over the top Maks fan, but he was hilarious last night. Poor guy having Bruno paw all over him

Based on their dancing skills alone, Bill should have gone home weeks ago. I hope Amber wins it all!

I would like for Amber to win. Derek has always been my favorite pro. That guy could probably choreograph a dance that would make me look good. LOL


I really think this season will be Derek's last

I REALLY hope he doesn't leave.

I also really like Jack. I think he has come a long way since his first dance.

I think Bill is fun to watch but I don't think he is a good dancer. I love his attitude too.

Corbin, he is a great dancer. Ultimately, I suspect that either him or Amber will win. Bill should come in last of those that are left.

I'm betting it will be Amber. She has Glee fans, Derek has his own fandom and she dances well enough to be a credible winner.

Jack doesn't have a big enough fan base to win. Corbin's fan base probably isn't watching the show since they're in college and DWTS is hardly must-see college viewing. Plus his previous dance experience turns off a lot of viewers who like to see the improvement arc. Bill may come in second due to his fanbase and the improvement arc that appeals to many viewers.

I would like to see Amber and Jack as the final two with Bill in third place. While Corbin dances well, his prior dance experience should disqualify him plus I don't like Karina.

I stopped DVRing when they eliminated all the good dancers and left some of the ones I thought would be gone right away. I enjoy seeing Corbin dance but he doesn't have the fans to win. The rest are just painful to watch.

See I disagree Sharon. I think Corbin is the best dancer but doesn't have as wide of a fan base as Amber. Amber has been dancing pretty well. This past week, she KILLED both dances. Last week, with her knee injury, she was a tad off but can still move..MUCH better than Leah ANY day of the week. Jack has done pretty good too...as well as Donny Osmond in his season who beat a FAR better May thanks to the fan vote. Bill isn't gonna win and I think will end up in 3rd or 4th place.
It's a popularity contest as much as, if not moreso than a dance contest.

In my eyes, it is suppose to be about those painful to watch. Not those like Corbin with a past dance instructor like Debbie Allen. I expect them to do well. I want to see how those that really have never danced before, progress.

It is interesting to me to see the dichotomy here between the people who think the "best dancer" should win (regardless of background) and those who think it should be about improvement over the season.

I think we actually agree. It's just me. I like seeing good dancers. I don't care how they got that way. I also don't like watching the early auditions on American Idol or AGT either. I'm not entertained by somebody who's just awkward.

I think Amber, Leah and Jack get too much love from the judges. Dances where they don't look extraordinary get 9's and 10's. Not feelin' it this season. If it's a popularity contest, why make them dance, just vote?

ITA. I know I've said it before, but this (to me) is not about watching the best dancers (like Corbin) perform. It's about watching celebrities who don't have extensive dance experience, stepping out of their comfort zone and learning and growing. It's not Dancing with the Pros, it's Dancing with the Stars. If I wanted to watch the former, I would just find ballroom dancing competitions to watch and skip the celebrity element.

I personally love Leah Remini and wish Corbin had been eliminated instead of her. If he wins, I will be really disappointed.
