'Dancing with the Stars' recap: A new star is crowned


25 May, 2017

ABC has announced that "DWTS" will return for a 25th season in September.

There were reasons to hand the coveted Mirrorball trophy to any one of them, making this finale one of the most competitive in the show's history. "I just wanted to come out here, get to know myself and fight for this".

And fight he did.

He edged out runner-up David Ross, the recently retired two-time World Series champion of the Chicago Cubs, and his partner Lindsay Arnold.

David and Lindsay wowed the judges with their Foxtrot-Salsa combo routine, which received a score of 36 out of 40. In two prior seasons, she placed third. But fear not. I am here to provide you a way to still be able to catch your favorite show, as long as you have a smartphone, computer or tablet. Seeing you transform and seeing your family celebrate your shine was the absolute most fulfilling part of this season.

"Well, she's had a full-on competition". It's helped me grow as a person. "I feel that I've learned so much from my partner and I feel that in the process I've gotten to know myself a little better". And with that, you'll get the highs and the lows that come with it.

He added: "But the psychological environment for the group of the players was absolutely horrendous". You picked me up when I was down, sung my name when I had a bad game and disappointed you.

Yet in an unusual step, they released a patch for those older systems because of the magnitude of the outbreak. Lastly there are, of course, the attackers, who kidnapped precious data and demanded ransom be paid.

Prince's six siblings declared official heirs to his still-uncounted estate
It's been over a year since Prince's untimely death, and many have wondered what will happen to his $200 million dollar estate. Those alleged heirs included a Colorado inmate who claimed to be Prince's son, which a DNA test ruled out .

David, although lacking in dance technique, was said to be the heart of this competition with his endearing personality and spirit. He had some tough dances, but the fans were always there to lift him back up.

For their Redemption Style dance, Kordei and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy will dance the quickstep to "Check it Out" (by Oh the Larceny).

The magic word at Tuesday's Dancing with the Stars finale? The people that work for the show are incredible. I couldn't have done this by myself.

"While the NFL is my No. 1 priority, I can think of no better way to stay in shape, combined with my intensive football training, until that team calls", he explained. By the end of the night Tuesday, we'll have the latest mirror ball trophy winners. Calvin Johnson finished in third place past year. The judges were clearly bigger fans of this routine than the first and gave Normani & Val a flawless score of 40.

For their last dance, Rashad and Emma performed a cha cha-tango fusion, receiving 39/40 points from the judges, totaling 119/120 for the two-night finale.
