Kellie Pickler and her pro dancing partner on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, Derek Hough, had another incredible showing on the final night before the results show, the Supersize Freestyle dance.

Check it out in full in the video above.

As Derek explains in the footage before their routine, he opted to strip down the performance of everything else and just “sell” the dance for what it is. And boy did they sell it!

By the end of the routine, the judges and members of the audience (possibly myself too) were in tears. Kellie and Derek also seemed incredibly emotional – and the judges hadn’t even begun to praise them.

“Kellie, you just bared your soul on the dance floor – and it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Thank you,” Carrie Ann Inaba told the dancing pair, barely fighting back tears.

Len Goodman gave them a standing ovation, and Bruno Tonioli called it a “contemporary work of art.”

I hope Kellie and Derek win. Which is your favorite team this season?
