Last night was the first night of the finals for this season on Dancing With The Stars
. There were perfect scores achieved by Meryl Davis and Maksim and also by Derek Hough and Amy Purdy. Despite the dire warnings about his shoulder and how Mark Ballas might not be able to dance, he didn't seem to be suffering, at least while dancing. He danced twice with Candace Cameron Bure and their scores were about the same as they always are. Good, but not amazing. At the end of the night it was James Maslow who got eliminated. All season I thought he had a great chance to make it to the finals and the real-life couple seemed to have the chemistry but I don't think enough people who actually vote on the show know who he is and he was voted off. I think the fact that Peta is still fairly new to the show also played a part because voters still don't know who she really is either.
