“Dancing With the Stars” pro Anna Trebunskaya weighs in on each of the week’s performances. The “DWTS” veteran knows what it takes to dazzle on the dance floor and gives her take on the dances, the choreography and the judges’ scores. You can find her on Twitter @atrebunskaya.
“Glee” star Amber Riley won the mirror ball trophy Tuesday night over fellow finalists Corbin Bleu and Jack Osbourne at the conclusion of the two-night finale of “Dancing With the Stars.” Click here for a full recap.
The “DWTS” two-hour finale was the Results Show that I missed the whole season. It was a full extravaganza of entertainment with musical artists, lots of dancing and fun content all around. Sitting in the front row at the show was a thrilling experience. It was so packed that I had to catch my breath because it felt like a roller coaster at times, just seeing how fast the set changed from Amber Riley’s encore Freestyle to the group dance to “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?).”
It was a bus night behind the scenes too. Fun fact: the wardrobe department put together 160 costumes for Monday and Tuesday’s finale shows.
As I predicted Monday night, Amber won. I really feel she put all of herself out there in the competition this last week. Her samba/quickstep fusion dance Tuesday night was spot on! It was so clear and crisp that she gave the judges no option but to score her 10s.
I’m also so proud of Jack Osbourne for his last performance. He never danced Salsa before and had to learn and perfect it within 24 hours. Wow. My hat off to you sir.
Corbin’s Cha-Cha/Foxtrot was so easy to watch. His dancing was smooth and fluid in Foxtrot and sharp and rhythmical in Cha-Cha. I would of given him a 10. I don’t think he messed up and the over all quality was great. He is extraordinary.
Congratulations to all the season 17 contestants! You made the show entertaining, exciting, heartwarming and full of fun and life.
