Teen star Zendaya finishes 1st on `Dancing’ finals

 

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Four finalists are vying for the “Dancing With the Stars” title, and just one point separates the top two contestants.

A new champion will be crowned Tuesday.

Football pro Jacoby Jones, Olympian Alexandra Raisman, singer Kellie Pickler and 16-year-old Disney Channel star Zendaya each did three dances on Monday’s episode of the ABC competition.

Zendaya performed perfectly, earning the maximum score for each routine. Pickler was a close second, collecting perfect 10s for her quickstep and freestyle dances, but finishing behind Zendaya in the cha-cha relay, which saw all four finalists perform to the same song.

Raisman finished third and Jones was fourth.

Each will perform one last dance during Tuesday’s season finale to add points to their totals. Judges’ scores combined with viewer votes will determine the new champion.
