Dancing With The StarsTwo of television’s most popular competition shows go head to head tonight. ‘American Idol’ airs its two-part season finale tonight and tomorrow night on Fox starting at 8pm. ABC airs their hit show ‘Dancing with the Stars’ tonight at 9pm. Hopefully you have DVR capabilities that will allow you two record both shows so you don’t miss a moment of the action. With the Primetime Anytime option by the DISH Network Hopper you can prerecord up to four hours of primetime programming each night. With the single push of a button you can record featured programming on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox. Here is what you can look forward to on tonight’s competition shows:
  • Dancing With The Stars: Results Show 9pm on ABC: It all comes down to what the fans decide. After dancing for their lives on last night’s show this is how the leader board currently stands:
  Judges Pick: Round One Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas: 10, 10, 10: 30 William Levy and Cheryl Burke: 10, 10, 10: 30 Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd: 10, 9, 10: 29   Freestyle Dance: Round Two Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas: 10, 10, 10: 30 Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd: 10, 10, 10: 30 William Levy and Cheryl Burke: 10, 9, 10: 30 Tonight competitors will have one last chance to impress the judges in the “24 Hour Challenge.” Before they left last night they were all given their music and they have 24 hours to come up with a fresh new dance that will impress the judges. See who takes home the Mirrorball trophy tonight on ABC starting at 9pm.
  • 'American Idol': Phillip Phillips and his competition Jessica Sanchez will face off in the ‘American Idol’ finale tonight and you should expect to see two very different performances. Contrasting performances in the finals is nothing new for ‘American Idol’ looking back on past final duos like Carrie Underwood and Bo Bice from season four. Having such contrasting competitors makes it hard to compare the two. You have Jessica, a timid little teenager from Chula Vista, CA that has seemingly transformed into a full-fledged diva on stage. Then on the other end of the spectrum you have Phillip, an unassuming, slow-talking southern dude from Leesburg, Ga., who has grown to be a true “Idol” heartthrob with an alternative music style. Whether or not you like his type of music or the way he looks, Phillip has been the more popular choice this season, unlike Jessica who needed a save from the judges to advance to the next round. No matter which way they made it to the finals, they are both in it for one thing, to be crowned as the next ‘American Idol’. Tune into Fox tonight at 8pm.
Make sure your DVR is set and the Primetime Anytime function is enabled so you don’t miss a moment of these exhilarating competition shows.
