It’s all over! On the May 21 finale, Kellie, Jacoby, Zendaya and Aly went head to head for the mirror ball trophy, the full cast performed together, and a winner was crowned!
It’s been ten weeks, thousands of sequins and a lot of tears, but season 16 of Dancing With the Stars is over! Kellie Pickler, Jacoby Jones, Aly Raisman and Zendaya danced for the last time on the May 21 finale, and one of them was awarded the glittering mirror ball trophy. And the winner is…
Kellie Pickler Wins ‘Dancing With The Stars’
Kellie and Derek won!
Aly came in fourth place, Jacoby came in third place, and sadly Zendaya just missed out on the winning the trophy and finished in second place.
While I was so sad to see Zendaya lose, Kellie was a really worthy winner and she looked so happy with her trophy!
On the first part of the two part finale, Kellie and Zendaya proved that they were the ones to beat, so it is no shocker that they were the final two.
Kellie Pickler Wins The Encore Dance
Kellie and Derek Hough‘s freestyle dance on the first night of the finale was truly amazing, and it even moved Carrie Ann Inaba to tears! It would have been a robbery if anyone else got to dance the encore.
Psy, Wynonna Judd & Pitbull Perform
It was a night full of awesome performances, and not all were full of dancing!
Psy proved that he is better — and wackier — than some of the professionals when he took to the floor to perform his new song “Gentleman.” And the judges even joined in!
Former contestant Wynonna Judd did what she does best by singing a love song, while Pitbull wowed the crowd with his exotic number. All that was missing was maracas and sangria! American Idol contestant Jessica Sanchez sang her a special version of “Feel This Moment” and it was one of the highlights of the night!
Jacoby and Karina Smirnoff did a salsa for their instant dance, and they scored 30 out of 30!
Kellie and Derek danced a jive, and they also got a perfect score!
Zendaya and Val Chmerkovskiy jived and it’s a hat trick — everyone got 30!
The Full Cast All Dance Together
Ingo Rademacher, Andy Dick, Sean Lowe, Dorothy Hamill, Victor Ortiz, Lisa Vanderpump, and D.L. Hughley all returned to dance one more time on the show, and it was really amazing!
The whole group opened the show to Pitbull’s “Don’t Stop The Party,” and it was so cute to see them to them all together again. The best part was seeing Wynonna in her mall cop outfit.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Are you glad Kellie won? Or do you think Zendaya was robbed?
