Ally and Sasha performed two dances in the finale. One was a repeat of a popular dance they performed earlier in the season, a Week 4 jive set to the iconic 1971 Ike and Tina Turner tune, “Proud Mary,” which earned a 30 out of 30 from the judges.
For the couple’s freestyle, Farber packed in lots of lifts and dance steps to a choreographed number for Gloria Estefan & The Miami Sound Machine’s “Conga,” which was applauded by the judges even though the twosome had some shaky moments in the execution of some of the more difficult tricks in the routine.
For their efforts, the duo left the competition with a total overall score of 60 — 30 for their jive and 30 for the freestyle.
