Noah Galloway, Riker Lynch, and Rumer Willis are the three contestants left in Season 20 of ABC's Dancing With the Stars set to end Tuesday night, May 19. The last chance to vote for a winner is on Monday night when the last contestants dance their freestyle. The freestyle seems to be the favorite dance of the season for fans and contestants who make it to the finals.
During the last dancing episode, each finalist will perform two routines. One will be a ballroom routine, and the other one is the all-important freestyle. The freestyle generally has a great impact on determining who the winner will be.
Other than the freestyle, U.S. Army veteran Noah Galloway will dance an Argentine tango. R5 band member Riker Lynch will dance the paso doble. Actress Rumer Willis will perform a foxtrot. Either one of the three finalists could win, but fans have had a favorite from the very beginning.
ABC's Melissa Rycroft talked to the finalists ahead of the finale. The conversation was aired on Good Morning America.
Rycroft was a contestant on Dancing With the Stars twice, during Season 8 and again during Dancing With the Stars: All Stars during Season 13. Rycroft won the mirror ball trophy with partner Tony Dovolani. Therefore, Rycroft knows the pressure the couples might be going through as Season 20 comes to an end.
Rycroft asked Allison Holker what her partner, Riker Lynch, 23, had that the other two finalists didn't. Allison didn't hesitate to talk about her partner.
"Everyone here has something special. Noah's, like, the inspiration. I really feel that Rumer's the passion. Riker's the entertainment of the show."Rycroft asked Val Chmerkovskiy whether he and Rumer Willis feel any pressure going to the finals. Val said, "Yes," but Rumer said, "No." Then she gave an explanation for her answer.
"I mean, yes and no. Because at the end of the day, I think the fans that got us here in the first place are going to be the ones, I think, that choose whether or not you win."Willis, 26, is dealing with a rib injury. She'll do her freestyle dance to a recording of her own cover of Britney Spears' "Toxic." Val wanted Rumer to showcase her singing talent as well as her dancing.
Rycroft asked Noah Galloway, 33, what he and partner Sharna Burgess had that the other finalists didn't. Noah did not hesitate to answer.
"I think that we connected very well early on. I think that that has helped us."The mirror ball winner will be revealed Tuesday. On that final show, Galloway will dance with former Dancing With the Stars contestant Amy Purdy, who lost both legs to meningitis. Galloway lost his left arm and leg in a bombing in Iraq.
