Fans split over who should be next ‘Dancing’ champ

SHARE Fans split over who should be next ‘Dancing’ champ

LOS ANGELES — Only three points separate the three finalists on "Dancing With the Stars," and the online support for Olympian Evan Lysacek, sportscaster Erin Andrews and singer Nicole Scherzinger is just as close.

Scherzinger and Andrews enter Tuesday's season finale tied with 55 points. Lysacek has 52 points.

But the score is only half the story: Viewer votes are combined with judges' scores to determine the new "Dancing" champ, and fans could cast five votes each on Monday.

Fans of the show took to Twitter to share their picks, and support seemed fairly divided among the three finalists.

BreeAlyse7813 said she voted for Andrews because "she improved the most and put it all out there."

FatallyCYNDI said she used her votes to support Lysacek. "I've been rooting for him since Week 1 and I'll keep on rooting!" she wrote.

Poster RedHatsofNedCo was impressed with Scherzinger and Hough's moves, writing, "That end lift of Nicole and Derek's was the most creative end lift I have ever seen or done! Amazing!"

Even Kim Kardashian tweeted about the show, airing 8 p.m. EDT on ABC.

"Good luck to all of the Dancing With the Stars finalists!" she posted. "Vote for Nicole and Derek!!!! Woowhoo!!!"

The voting wrapped long before showtime Tuesday, when one of the finalists will take home the coveted mirrorball trophy.

Andrews, Lysacek and Scherzinger will each perform their favorite dance of the season to start the episode, and all chose the same dance: the tango. The two top-scorers will then face off with one final dance before the new champ is named.

The season's previously eliminated stars — actors Pamela Anderson, Shannen Doherty, Niecy Nash and Aiden Turner, reality stars Jake Pavelka and Kate Gosselin, astronaut Buzz Aldrin and football star Chad Ochocinco — will return to the ballroom to close out the 10th season of the hit ABC show.
