Update: Annie’s full recap is liiiiiive!

It’s on! Zendaya and Val, Kellie and Derek, Aly and Mark, and Jacoby and Karina each dance three times in tonight’s season 16 finals — a ballroom style chosen for them by the judges, a Cha Cha Relay (just 40 seconds for each couple), and the much revered/dreaded Freestyle round, which can notoriously make or break a Sparkalien’s chances for THE COVETED MIRRORBALL TROPHY on Planet Mirrorballus.

Discuss the finals here and nominate your hidden gems below. (Fair warning, though: Tomorrow will be extremely busy and I may need to keep it to around 10 gems. That never works, actually. If I commit to doing them at all, I inevitably end up screengrabbing some random audience member’s glowing hair. Every time!)

Who do you think should win? — POLL

(And in case you missed ’em:’s Hidden Gems of the Semifinals for your expert appraisal.)
