Tonight is part 1 of the finale for season 22 of Dancing With the Stars. Each contestant will perform two routines with one redemption dance as well as a freestyle performance. The redemption routines are to make up for a dance that may have not done as well as they would have hoped this season. Yesterday, Ginger Zee was very worried after a pelvis injury during rehearsals kept her from rehearsing. She confessed to People, “I couldn’t even do two of my dress rehearsal runs today because, for one, I can’t even do some of the moves. I’m not allowed to.” Today, however, Ginger Zee seems to be in higher spirits and is ready to perform.
