The Dancing with the Stars finale week for Season 24 has begun and predictions as to which pair will be the big winner in ABC’s dance show run rampant online.
After the final three pairs were revealed last week, there seems to be a lot of debate over the internet on who will win DWTS Season 24.
Based on last week’s episode, DWTS is left with three finalists, namely: Normani Kordei, Rashad Jennings, and David Ross. Together with their partners, the three final dancers will have to deliver the best performance of their lives on Monday, May 22 during the Dancing with the Stars finale for Season 24.
Because the last contenders left on ABC’s DWTS stage are a bit controversial, USA Today and the Orlando Sentinel analyzed each pair’s chance of winning ahead of the final leg of the competition based on their announced final dances.
Normani Kordei and Valentin Chmerkovskiy
Normani Kordei and partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy are assigned the Quickstep to the tune of “Check It Out” by Oh the Larceny for their redemption style and “What the World Needs Now is Love” by Andra Day for their freestyle.
USA Today and Orlando Sentinel agree that her strengths include her fan base as a Fifth Harmony member as well as her vulnerability with her performance of the Mulan-inspired Paso Doble as her best dance of the season, which she performed during Disney night.

However, her consistency has proven to be a damaging factor as it has proven to be quite a difficult task.
Overall, her chances of emerging victorious during the Dancing with the Stars finale week is 2:1, per USA Today.
Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater

Meanwhile, Rashad Jennings and partner Emma Slater will be performing the Viennese Waltz with The Weeknd and Ed Sheeran’s “Dark Times” as their redemption style dance and will freestyle to the tune of a medley of “Let’s Go” and “Uptown Funk” by Drumline/Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars.
Based on the article from Orlando Sentinel, the NFL player’s best performance so far is his May 8 Argentine tango while his worst performance was the samba that was assigned to him early in the season.
Based on his performances, USA Today noted that his best performances were when “he’s opened up to the dance.” On top of that, DWTS judges pointed out that while he has the charm, his footwork needs work.
Putting all that together, USA Today gave Jennings a 10:1 winning chance in this week’s Dancing with the Stars finale.
David Ross and Lindsay Arnold

The previous elimination weeks proved to be some of the most shocking in DWTS history, and the result is David Ross and partner Lindsay Arnold.
Ever since the shocking elimination of top contenders Simone Biles, Nancy Kerrigan, and Heather Morris, it has become apparent that David’s best asset is his charm, according to USA Today.
The outlet may have a point in saying so considering that his technique is not something to behold although DWTS judges have considered him the embodiment of the show’s mission to teach non-dancers to become top-rate performers, per the Sentinel.
Despite the odds looking bad for Ross with a 30:1 winning rate from USA Today, there may still be a chance that he could win the series if only because his assigned redemption style dance is the Viennese Waltz to the tune of One Republic’s “Let’s Hurt Tonight.”
Who Will Win?
According to the Sentinel, all factors point to Kordei as the big winner of the Dancing with the Stars finale week, especially if she “sticks to her standards.”
Of course, with the show’s reputation for shocking weekly vote results, the playing field is equal considering that the show’s best performers did not even reach the Dancing with the Stars finale week.
