NFL's Jennings edges Ross in 'Dancing' finale

Opening ABC's night, Dancing With the Stars (10.4 mil/1.8) matched last season's final dance-off and was down just a tick year-over-year. As always, Dancing will probably wait until the very end to actually reveal who wins. Season 24 has been a great one, and now, we have a victor! The odds are in anyone's favor and the competition is neck-and-neck. This week is the Dancing Eith The Stars Finale. The victor will be determined based on the combination of scores and votes.

Dancing with the Stars airs its spring finale tomorrow, May 23 at 8:30/7:30c on ABC.

Each star and their pro partner took on two dances - a "redemption dance" to win back the judges and a freestyle. Or would it be Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei, who has been the most electric and consistent performer throughout the entire season? Normani and Val and Rashad and Emma similarly earned 40/40 from the judges for their performances!

The duo earned 39 out of a possible 40 points! Two miniature versions of Normani and Val joined them for their freestyle performance.

Who would have ever thought they would see the day David Ross earned a flawless score? Again, their fate is all in the hands of the viewers, so we'll just have to wait and see who will actually nab that sparkly Mirrorball. He got 33 points for that dance. The most telling comment is about how Normani is in her element on this show. He really gave it his all this season and boy, did it pay off! He really is the underdog!

Behind Kordei is National Football League star Rashad Jennings.

Normani took second place, but still brought in a high score. So far, he's the frontrunner with a ideal 80 out of 80. Len says Rashad is the one going into Tuesday night's finale Part 2 with momentum. Included: a final competition round; performances by Hailee Steinfeld; OneRepublic; and Lady Antebellum. They performed their most memorable routines which was rather entertaining. "That was fantastic." Watch Ross's baseball-themed routine above. The judges have each given their piece on what they think about the trio: Jennings is the epitome of character development, maturity, and growth; Ross is the embodiment of the show's mission; and Kordei is lauded for her perseverance and endurance. But truly, Mr T stole the cake with his "I pity the fool" rap video.

The two trailing celebs can catch up in the 24-hour Fusion Round.

The first round was the redemption dance round, giving each couple the opportunity to repeat a dance style that they didn't do well on previously to show the judges how they have improved.

Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater performed a super-steamy Viennese Waltz. Hold your hearts Harmonizers- Normani is out. Ross' charm, rather than his dancing skills, helped him become a finalist, and it wouldn't be surprising if this helps him take home the Mirror Ball Trophy.
