'Dancing with the Stars' Finale Predictions: Who Will Win Season 22?

UFC fighter Paige VanZant has been absolutely crushing the dance floor on Season 22 of Dancing with the Stars, with consistently high scores, making her a ruler of the leaderboard all season long. DiMarco hoped his freestyle performance would help give a voice to the deaf community as the piece was about being deaf. Carrie Ann said that Paige has grown so much and that dance healed her. Len said it was an honor to see three fantastic freestyles. They wanted their dance to tell the story about how Nyle's helping deaf people. The pair got a flawless 30 for the emotional routine. "I put a lot of pressure on myself, and that gets compounded by the fact that we have two really hard dances", VanZant explained. It was beautifully done, and I really enjoyed it... Nyle DiMarco and Paige VanZant are both really strong dancers, and while there are people out there who understandably have their preferences, we have a hard time thinking that either one of them would be a bad victor when they've each got so much going for them in terms of momentum and talent.

"I got to hear my name called as one of the finalists", VanZant said in her blog for People Magazine. Paige VanZant scored the most judges' points Monday night. I just enjoyed Nyle's a little better. The challenge requires the pairs to work on a new piece- a combination of two dance styles and it will have to be prepared within 24 hours.

The second dance earned the dynamic duo an ideal score, bringing their combined total to 59 - the highest of the evening. "I don't even know what else to say... WOW.... She will be appearing in an upcoming sequel to his "Kickboxer" movie".

The "Good Morning America" meteorologist fought through a pelvic injury she previously sustained and wowed the judges on Monday night's part one of "Dancing with the Stars" finale. Zee, who gave birth to her first child, son Adrian, in December, revealed that her physical therapist said her pelvis was "just moving all over" and was almost "an in off" from where it's supposed to be. "We did it. We made it through".

For their first dance, the couple only received a score of 27 out of 30. DiMarco's mother, who was in the audience, could not stop sobbing after her son's wonderful performance.

However, the new mom was so determined to compete, she said she is doing more therapy to manage the pain, so she can join the DWTS finale. Tune in Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET to see which couple walks away with the mirror ball trophy.
