Dancing with the Stars: Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani in The Finals – Down Memory Lane with Photos
Congratulations to Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani for making it to the finals. They have worked very hard and despite the fact that both have had injuries, they still completed all of their dances together. In season 8, Melissa was the underdog as she had only three days to prepare for that season. Jason Messnick, had rejected her on The Bachelor and her heart was broken. A few days later, she was offered a chance to be on DWTS. One of the contestants had injured themselves. Melissa went on to wow us with her dancing ability and she made it to third place.
At the end, Melissa injured herself and was not able to perform for the show. The judges looked at the rehearsal tape and judged that. She was sent packing.
And now, she was partnered with Tony again, and what a smart move that was. Melissa and Tony have scored about three perfect scores in addition to a few other tens. Tony has been so grateful this season, as he has not scored a 10 since he had Melissa as a partner in season 8. They have consistently become better and better through the competition and have been rewarded. I can’t wait to see their freestyle dance.
