It’s not just about their amazing chemistry on the dance floor — Janel is a phenomenal dancer that has wowed technically and artistically. Here’s why Janel & Val should win Season 19.
The romance bug has definitely hit Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy — she admitted she loves Val on the Nov. 24 episode of Dancing With The Stars, just before it was announced that she is in the top three vying for the Mirrorball Trophy. I’m so happy that they are being more open about their relationship and think they should take home the top prize!
Janel Parrish & Val Chmerkovskiy Should Win ‘DWTS’ — Finale Favorites
In the beginning, Janel was dating another guy, Payson Lewis, but her connection with Val was too strong and Janel & Payson broke up.
Janel & Val’s chemistry grew stronger week after week. In week 8, their Romeo & Juliet Contemporary was stunning: “Extremely ambitious yet gorgeous and glorious in every way,” judge Bruno Tonioli said.
Judge Carrie Ann Inaba added: “This is, to me, the epitome of what dance is about.”
In week 10, they got another top score for their perfect Paso Doble. While talking to co-host Erin Andrews, Val started to open up about his relationship with Janel: “When it switched for us, somewhere along the way, we lost the point of the show and we just became grateful for each other. For the opportunity to perform. It’s nights like this that make it all worth it.”
I love watching them dance — I just believe it more than the other pairs. It’s so raw and real and intimate — it always has me mesmerized.
Val wrote a message to Janel on his Instagram on Nov. 24: “You are so many things, but the one thing that truly matters is your heart. They can never say you didn’t have heart. you fought every step of the way. I’m so impressed with you and grateful to have been your partner. I said from the beginning I had the best one, seemed cocky at the time but I meant it enough to say it. I believed in it enough to risk it. We didn’t always say the right things, do the right things, but we always meant the right things.. and for that I’m proud and thankful. Love you J congrats my champ.”
How sweet! They are just adorable!

Janel has proven to be a Broadway-caliber dancer. Do you remember her West Side Story tribute? That was way back in week 3 and it was flawless!
She is a fabulous entertainer and strong, powerful dancer. The fact that she has such an amazing connection with her partner is icing on the cake!
Janel and Val got the first perfect score of the season and I hope they get the last — they deserve to win!
