The first half of the finale is over on season 16 of Dancing with the Stars. Country singer Kellie Pickler is in 2nd place, just a point behind Disney star Zendaya. Pickler and partner Derek Hough's emotional freestyle left half the ballroom in tears, including judge Carrie Ann Inaba and Pickler's husband, songwriter Kyle Jacobs.
Kellie told ABC News Radio after the show, "I didn't see him, but I heard that he was tearing up. Which is crazy, because he never cries. Ever. Um, but I, I guess that's just what dancin' can do to you. There's a lot of -- it's, it's emotional!"
The two-hour season finale results show, featuring musical performances from Pitbull, Wynonna and PSY, airs on ABC Tuesday night at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
