Hello, DANCMSTRs!’s Fringe Fairy here. The two-hour monstrosity has begun. For season 8 finalists Shawn Johnson, Gilles Marini, and Meliissa Rycroft, the months-long quest for an 18-inch knob of hardened glitter ends tonight. One will head home weeping tiny, rather attractive droplets of liquid crystals; the other two will be gushing tears of low-grade bedazzler glue for the rest of 2009. It’s a Sad World.

Talk about Dancing With the Stars here during and after the finale, then come back tomorrow morning for my final TV Watch of the season, unless you want me to cry, too. While you wait, check out’s rhinestone-encrusted photo gallery of costume designer Randall Christensen’s favorite season 8 looks, which just went live this afternoon. It’s not often a lowly fringe fairy gets to interview one of her Top 5 Personal Heroes Ever, you know. Now that I’ve had a taste…if you happen to be Lucille Bluth, Cookie Monster, the Pillsbury Doughboy, or whoever came up with Mountain Dew, you better watch out. I’ll be calling.

See you tomorrow!

Update: It is tomorrow. Finale recap has been posted!
