Amy Purdy FLIES on Dancing with the Stars Finale with Derek Hough — WATCH HERE!
Amy Purdy literally flew through the first part of the “Dancing with the Stars” finale with Derek Hough. The couple’s freestyle culminated with Purdy being lifted high above on a rope and spinning through the air in magical, fantastical and unbelievable fashion.
Bruno Tonioli said afterwards, “We talk about flying high — you are in orbit tonight.” “You just redefine what is possible,” he went on. “It’s incredible, my darling.”
Carrie Ann Inaba told Purdy, “You were dancing with your soul. I didn’t care what movement you were doing.” “You were so connected to the lyrics, to the moment, to the passion — to the world… It was just so profound,” she exclaimed.
Len Goodman questioned whether the stunt was necessary. He added, “However, I loved the emotion, I loved the lifts, and I loved the choreography.”
After a perfect 30 for their first dance, a salsa, they earned a total of 59 points for the night, which will be combined with scores from Tuesday and viewers’ votes to determine the final outcome. They’ll be facing Meryl Davis & Maksim Chmerkovskiy (60 points) and Candace Cameron Bure & Mark Ballas (51 points) in the second part of the finale.
