    I'm really happy about this finale. Both couples really deserved to be there, I would have been happy to see either of them win, I voted for both all season long.

    Do you think so? NONE of the votes at ABC.com were counted ... not for any of them

    All of the phoned in votes were counted and I believe they said they were counting text and Facebook too ... so I don't quite understand why it would be tainted.

    Also ... who was the older gentleman kind of crying in the audience last night when Kellie danced?

    Did you know that Facebook has a 13 and over policy and that a fair percentage of Zendaya's fans who had as much right as anyone to vote and HAD been voting on abc,com all season, being under 13 were thus disenfranchised?

    ITA with all that you've said.

    Sure, I was pulling for Z, but I'm not throwing things around the room breaking them because Kellie won, either. She, too, is a hell of a dancer, and a sweetheart, to boot. She worked hard and deserves it.

    But even if Z'd won, there would've been controversy left, right and center, what with the voting blowup. I fully expect to hear and read stories calling all kinds of foul on Kellie's win.

    Which is NOT fair to her.

    But trust and believe, it's coming.

    And frankly, everything happens for a REASON. Z's got a long, LONG career ahead of her. She, apparently, wasn't MEANT to win this, what with the inevitable backlash against Kellie that's going to come from some quarters. If Z'd won, those slings and arrows would've been coming HER way, instead.

    We certainly haven't heard or seen the last of Z. For all any of us know, she could very well pull a JHud and wind up winning an Oscar somewhere down the road.

    And if/when she does, I'll be right there cheering her on, just as I was here!

    After Psy's performance, I heard myself say outloud, "What was that???!" I could tell everyone there was having a great time, but it didn't really resemble a song too much. Pitbull's whole performance was better, but his song hardly had any words!! At least Jessica's song had some words and meaning.

    zen is such a darling young girl, and she is probably going to go on to become the next big Disney star. However, I wasn't hugely surprised that Kelly pulled off the win. I have been saying that it was possible Kelly had a strong country fanbase. Plus, that emotionally evocative freestyle last night may have sealed it for her.

    Yes. A lot of people only vote on the web site...it is usually the quickest and easiest method. Many (myself included), refuse to pay so they can text. Others refuse to give out personal information and vote through facebook. The phone lines are sometimes difficult to get through.

    It doesn't matter who would have been in the finals, it still doesn't feel right no matter how they spin it. I am not surprised that Kellie won...she has the country fan base, plus Derek has his own huge fan base and lets face it, their freestyle was fabulous and the only true stand out last night. She and Z were clearly the leaders of the pack during the competition and were neck and neck throughout. The freestyle may have just swung the vote in their favour. For me, even if the results favoured Z...I would still be wondering.
