Dancing’s Stars Get Psyched for the Finale

Reflections on going after the Mirror Ball

Candace Cameron Bure & Mark Ballas

From her PEOPLE blog: “I’m finding that my journey on DWTS is so much more than I ever expected. I’m learning more about myself than I ever imagined. This has become way more than a dance show or a competition. I’ve always known who I am and whose I am—and continuing to evolve and grow in self-discovery in the journey of life is a really cool thing.”

Amy Purdy & Derek Hough

“The important thing now is not to put any pressure. [We] go back to week one, when we were loving this, and we were just happy to be here. Now we have a week-one attitude with a week- nine skill set.”


James Maslow & Peta Murgatroyd

“I absolutely believe in us…. We’re in it to win it.”


Meryl Davis & Maks Chmerkovskiy

“I got somebody who doesn’t need to prove herself to anyone.”
