Last night was the exciting season 8 finale of Dancing With the Stars. I was honestly ready to see any of the three win it this season. They were all three amazing! Amid performances by Lady Gaga and all of this season’s dancers, we saw repeat performances by the final three couples. All three final performances were given perfect 30 scores by the judges, so it all came down to the viewers’ votes.
First, we had to see Melissa Rycroft & her partner Tony Dovolani get eliminated. Then we found out that Shawn Johnson & Mark Ballas were the seaosn 8 winners. Apolo Ohno told Shawn that no Olympian who made it to the finals had left without winning the trophy. She certainly took it to heart, because she danced fabulously!
I’m not surprised that Melissa didn’t get as manay audience votes as the other two, since she is so new to the celebrity world. But after being the consistent leader all season and being as totally hunky as he is, I was surprised that Gilles Marini & Cheryl Burke didn’t win.
But overall, there were three of the most wonderful dancers ever in the finale this season.
