'DWTS': Finale hurdle for Bristol?

 OK "Dancing with the Stars" fans. We have the season finale details. Per my earlier speculation, I think this proves Bristol will not, repeat not, be our winner.

  Now, caveat: I could be wrong. Been wrong before. Be wrong again.

   But check it out... (Before we get to that, though, this - Aguilera, as in Christina, will perform a couple of songs.   That's right - she has a movie to promote, "Burlesque.")

  Herewith the critical graphs from ABC's press release...

In the final performance show on MONDAY, NOV. 22 (8:00
-9:00 p.m., ET), each of the couples will compete in
two dances. In an effort to show their improvement over
the course of the season, all three couples will dance
for redemption by re-choreographing and doing a
previously performed dance chosen by the judges with
new music for a better score. Each couple will also
perform the unpredictable and always entertaining no
rules Freestyle dance.

In the two-hour Season Finale on TUESDAY, NOV. 23
(9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), the thrill of the competition
will continue as the three finalists perform their
personal favorite ballroom dance of the season and will
be ranked by the judges. In the final element of the
competition on Tuesday, each of the couples will do an
“Instant Dance” -- in which they will have to master
the Cha Cha Cha to music they’ve been given for the
first time after the show’s broadcast has begun.

   This is the same struture - generally speaking- as last year,  best I recall. This means  the judges get the final say.  In other words, if I'm reading this correctly, there will be two judged elements on Tuesday, and those votes will count towards the total.

  Unless Bristol turns into Anna Pavlova, or even Ginger Rogers, then it's over for her. 

   But - by the way - good for her. She was pretty good. Nothing to be ashamed of.
