    WOHOOO, they deserved it!

    The dance Kellie & Derek performed Mon was absolutely beauiful. Congrats to both of them.

  • Matt

    Zendaya deserved it, no doubt. She was the best celebrity dancer on the show. Kelli wasn’t nearly as good.

  • thetis

    Val is by far a better dancer than Derek and Derek spends most of his time mugging for the camera and upstaging his partners.

    Sorry Zendaya and Val should have won – what I did like was when they announced the winners and they panned the other dancers on the balcony they didnt look very happy and Mark seemed to be coaxing them to come over

  • Love Kellie P

    Derek stepped back and gave Kellie the spotlight when the win was announced. His dances are the only ones worth watching a second time. Aly was ripped off, but there is always a sense of a popularity contest to this that Jacoby won over her.

  • Rachael


    Zendaya is the “best” celebrity dancer because that is exactly what she is….a dancer!!! This show was no challenge for her. So Kellie deserved that win. Congrats Kellie!!!!

  • RoseWood

    @Matt: yeah i agree

  • Sammy

    WOOOO KELLIE!!! So happy for her! She was INCREDIBLE! Zendaya is amazing, but she is a professional dancer already so it’s unfair. Aly was robbed though! She should have at least been 3rd!

  • sam

    zendaya is a beautiful girl with a bright future. that being said, she needed to show more emotional depth in her dance. notice, they did no rumba. her samba last night was the only time it felt like a woman was dancing…not a disney kid

  • Maria

    Happy for Kelly and Derek.

  • Honey

    Zendaya was robbed.

  • thetis

    @Love Kellie P:

    LMAO its the only time all season he did that he upstaged her and everyone else as usual all season but the internet has been full of remarks about him so he bowed back this one time.

    The look on the other competitors faces said it all

  • bubbles

    NO FAIR!!!! Zendaya should won,but im happy for Kellie and Derek

  • Laura

    It was a close contest and for me it was between Kelli and Zendaya. Zendaya is an excellent dancer but the freestyle dance that Kelli and Derek did sealed it for me and I think for a lot of people. I wish they would return to just ballroom dancing but since they decided to add the other styles the dance Derek choregraphed was awesome. Val is an excellent addition to the show.

    I’m kind of bummed it’s over, but that was a great, competitive season. Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough really worked hard and turned in some memorable performances. I’m happy I got to see the results show live because the way things are with Facebook, and my friends texting me, it’s pretty much impossible to avoid spoilers on DWtS. Lately though, I’ve been pulling a few hours of overtime at DISH, so I’m usually on the train ride home when it airs. DISH Anywhere has been awesome though since it gives me the ability to stream all of my live TV channels and DVR recordings to my phone. So I was able to catch it during my commute home and avoid the spoilers.

    Zendaya and Val were robbed. People who say that this competition wasn’t a challenge for Zendaya are lying to themselves. She was the only contestant that could only practice for four hours a day because she is a minor. She could not do provocative dances because she is underage so Val had a challenge when he had to come up with the choreography. She couldn’t do skimpy provocative dances like the other female contestants. Kelly is only good when she is dancing with Derek. She cannot dance to save her life when it comes down to a solo. If you look back at her and Derek’s dances they consist of him mostly lifting her up and throwing her around. Yes, Kelly was good for DWTS standards, but she was definitely NOT the best this season in any way, shape or form.

  • Kathy

    Okay Jacoby, love ya… now let’s get back to concentrating on our Super Bowl team!!!!
    Go Ravens!!!

  • letha talton

    The right one did win.

  • Alexa

    I am soooo disappointed that once again Val was robbed of the title!
    When Hough said he almost didn’t come on this season, I thought why did you? If not for you, Val would have had it!
    Not that he is better than Val, but favoritism seems to go Derek’s way-
    Hough is a great dancer and a brilliant choreographer, but let’s face it he also gets some of the best to work with time and again.
    Val is a superb dancer and he and Zendaya were the winners this season in my book.
    Hang in there Val that mirror ball is bound to come your way!!

    I wish zendaya and Val won

  • Kate

    @Derek is the whole show:

    Actually I never agreed with Shawn winning the first time around. I’ve been watching since season 1 and it was clear that on her season, she simply won because the normal voters split their vote between Melissa and Gilles (as my family did). That was proven the second time around when Melissa completely outshone Shawn and won like she deserved to the first time.

    Plus like numerous others have said… it would be nice to see Derek get an older partner or one clearly not in shape to be dancing. I would just personally like to see how he deals with it, because then we’d get to see how good he is with a real challenge.

  • Mercedes

    i think aly raismen should have won she is amazing she also has a lot of experience
