Kellie Pickler wins Dancing With The Stars
NEW YORK (WABC) -- It's a night that was 10 weeks in the making and it finally arrived: the big "Dancing with the Stars" finale! Kellie & Derek were chosen by the viewers on Twitter to dance their very emotional Freestyle dance again. It was just as beautiful as it was the first time.
It was time for results right away! I thought they were going to make us wait longer. But, I wish they had because Aly & Mark were eliminated! NO! That's not fair! I thought she was so amazing! I'm bummed because I thought that Jacoby wasn't as good as she was last night, but I guess she didn't have the fan votes.
Wynonna came back out to sing "I Want to Know What Love Is" as her old dance partner Tony danced with Peta. It was much better watching her sing than seeing her dance!
Lisa and Gleb came back out to dance their elegant Fox Trot. It was great to see Gleb again. Then, surprise! Len came out on the dance floor and danced a bit with Lisa! He looked amazing! See folks, he does know what he's talking about!
Dorothy and Henry danced the Viennese Waltz. It was great to see her back on the dance floor and she did a great job! It's too bad her injury forced her to quit the competition early. This night is just full of surprises, because Kristi Yamaguchi came out and did a mirror image dance side by side with Dorothy! Two Olympic champions dancing side by side, how cool is that?!
Andy and Sharna were back and I missed them! They brought some great humor and heart to the show. They danced Jazz to Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" again and that was their best dance! I really enjoyed it!
Psy came out next to perform his new single "Gentleman". He does know how to shake it but it's no "Gangnam Style" that's for sure.
Pitbull performed his new single "Hands Up" had everyone up and shaking. His music really does get you in the dancing mood.
Jacoby and Karina danced the Salsa for their Instant Dance. His hip action looked fantastic! They also did a really complicated dipping move and he spun her around and lifted her! I didn't know that was allowed with the Salsa. Their momentum was really great. I wish he would stop jumping over Karina though, it's so tired. Len called Jacoby a breath of fresh air. Bruno said he had charisma and showmanship. Carrie Ann said that it was the dance of a champion!
Their Scores: Carrie Ann - 10, Len - 10, and Bruno - 10, for a perfect 30 out of 30 and a total of 86 for both nights.
Kellie and Derek's instant Jive had a lot of pep, but I felt like Derek took the lead just a little too much. I felt like it didn't really showcase her enough. That's me nit picking though. They were really great. Bruno said that she reminds him of Julianne Hough, Derek's sister! Carrie Ann said it was a perfect ending to a perfect journey. Len said they are always clean and precise and he called her the "bees knees".
Their Scores: Carrie Ann - 10, Len - 10, and Bruno - 10, for a 30 out of 30, and a score of 94 for both nights.
Zendaya and Val came out kicking! They spun and stayed in perfect sync the whole time. I loved the kicks and flicks and despite wearing clunky pink sneakers, the performance really worked! Carrie Ann said that she is so sad to not be able to watch them dance anymore and that she made every dance special. Len said that she dances with such maturity and that she really knows how to put her personality into each dance. Bruno said "twinkle twinkle your little star, you're going to go very far," aww so sweet!
Their Scores: Carrie Ann - 10, Len - 10, and Bruno - 10, for a perfect 30 out of 30 and a two night score of 95!
Jessica Sanchez sang her version of Pitbull's "Feel This Moment". You may remember her from "American Idol". They played a recap from the season of some of the best moments as Jessica sang.
Then it was time for results. In third place, were Jacoby and Karina. They seemed to expect it honestly.
In the end, Kellie and Derek took home the Mirror Ball Trophy! Poor Zendaya, she came so close! Kellie and Derek were really phenomenal though and deserved to win.
