Donny Osmond wins Dancing with the Stars
Donny Osmond won Dancing with the Stars and hoisted the Disco Ball with partner Kym Johnson. America loves the Osmonds and the proof was in last night's pre-Thanksgiving pudding as Donny took first place, Mya and Dmitri Chaplin finished second and Kelly Osbourne and Louis Van Amstel finished third.
Another season of Dancing with the Stars is in the books and as Reality TV Magazine's Paulene Hinds reported November 25, "With a brand new dance, the season nine contestants came out and hit the floor for one last performance. If only they could have danced like that during the competition, they may still be in it."
As only Dancing with the Stars can do with their finales, it was an evening that truly felt like a celebration from beginning to end. Comeback kid Whitney Houston took the stage twice to perform songs from her new album I Look to You, while the video segments chronicling the past season's accomplishments managed to seem fresh even though we've already witnessed them merely weeks ago.
The other element that Dancing with the Stars triumphs with their finales is the creative ways to take a five minute announcement and stretch it over two hours. With segments including a Loser Hall of Fame induction and the return of Jerry Rice, the finale whizzed by as quickly as a perfect Jive.
