Kellie embodied what the show was meant to be…taking a NON-dancer and turning that person into one. Zendaya was excellent AND a trained dancer already. She shouldn’t even have been on the show. Kellie hasn’t been in high school in quite some time and being a cheerleader is hardly in the same league. The right person won the mirror ball trophy. What Zendaya has won is a career beyond the horrid Disney show she is on now. She is far better than that show and now the world knows it. Kellie and Zendaya were both exceptional…but Kellie had more to overcome.

Get over the racial thing. Whenever a black person doesn’t win the race card is always played. Shame on you. If there was a deserving black girl dancer she would have won. What about the black men that won? People didn’t come out and say they won because they were black and it was unfair that a white person didn’t win. Shame on you and grow up. Kellie pickler won and yes she is white- so what. She is a great dancer. Maybe zendaya would have won if she and Val weren’t so cocky and arrogant all season!!!

Kellie and Derek deserved to win. Zendaya and Val looked so surprised when their names weren’t called. They didn’t even go over and congratulate them. Sore losers!!! Zendaya should have danced in heels like the other girls instead of sneakers which is much easier. Zendaya and Val were very cocky and arrogant all season. They should have been more humble and maybe they would have been more likable. Kellie and dereks freestyle was amazing and went viral. Zendaya’s was predictable and did not go viral even though she asked her twitter followers to make that happen- kellie didn’t need to ask. I hope Derek comes back next season. Congrats kellie & Derek!

Kellie and Derek deserved to win. Zendaya looked so surprised when Tom said kellie and Derek. Her and Val didn’t even go over and congratulate them. They were cocky and arrogant all season. Zendaya thought she deserved a perfect score every time. Besides she should have danced in heels like everyone else did instead of sneakers. Kellie and dereks freestyle was amazing! Zendaya’s was what you expected her to do- nothing unusual. I loved jacoby’s freestyle also. If Derek doesn’t come back next season he really will be missed! Congrats Kellie and Derek!!!

Kellie surprised me and was stunned by how well she did. She was the winner by far. When DWTS started I thought Zendaya would win because people have the tendency to vote for children and babys. They think they’re so cute!

Exactly. LOL. You said a mouthful. You just admitted why this show don’t work no more. “Derek won.” Yes, he did. Derek Hough is the season 16 winner of DWTS. Not Kellie. Kellie was just in the way. Derek wouldve probably shoved her off the stage if couldve gotten away with it so that she couldnt steal any of his previous spotlight. Derek is more a celebrity then Kellie. He’s the star of the show. Of course he won. Being that Derek is the only person on the show who is literally both a celebrity and a pro dancer, it’s patently unfair. There is no sense of legitimacy on DWTS anymore unless he goes.

What you’re saying is soooo ridiculous it doesn’t even make sense. Derek is a great dancer and choreographer and knows how to bring out his partners strengths- unlike any of the other pros. His dances are the most memorable ones on the show. He shows off his dancers and takes a step back and let’s them have the spotlight. Last night he was telling them to lift kellie up. You are so wrong about him. Val, Maks, & Tony are so jealous of him. They could never be as GREAT as him. He won 4 times- the only pro to do so!!! CONGRATS DEREK & KELLIE

It’s absolutely true. Kellie could not keep up with the complexity of Zendaya’s choreography or match Zendaya’s versatility. Her routines were very simplistic. She was a poser more then a dancer. Kellie was good at striking poses and holding them, but she was not fluent. It was all smoke and mirrors, just like Len said in week 8. But the judges never really forced Kellie to do anything else. Then, I remember when Zendaya did that once dance, I think week 8, and Carrie-Ann told Zendaya that the start of the dance was too simple for her. So Zendaya was docked points on that dance for doing a simplistic routine, while all of Kellie routines were simplistic. People have no idea what they are watching out there.

Sour grapes never did a body good. Zendaya is a professional dancer, she should never have been in this competiontion to begin with if you’re going to be whiny about it.

I think the right person definitely won! Sure Zendaya was a great dancer but Kellie’s technique was unbelievable and definitely deserved the mirror ball trophy. Did you see her freestyle dance? And the other one with their silhouettes? She was by far the best technical dancer. I am so happy that she won!!!!

Anyone with a good set of eyes could see that Zendaya was the best dancer. She was underscored all season – given 9’s when she should have had all 10’s.

Kellie (along with other participants) was overscored on a few dances, mainly the one’s involving hip action. I agree she is an excellent modern dancer, but as far as some of the others – NO! This is why half of her dances were performed on smoke-filled stages so viewers couldn’t see her footwork.

I know Zendaya haters (because of her past professional hip-hop dance experience) are happy. But Kellie used to be a cheerleader. Aly was a gymnast. Jacoby was a pro athlete and club dancer. All the participants had somewhat of an edge in different areas.

Why didn’t Zendaya do the Rumba? They let her slid because of her age. So don’t even start about them making allowances for other people.

Kellie did not win any of the final 3 weeks. Zendaya won 2 out of those 3. Zendaya went 95 for 95 in the finals and went perfect in 6 of her final 7 routines. She was the only contestant to never receive lower then an 8 on any scorecard for any dance. she was the first to receive a 9. First to receive a 10. First to receive a perfect score. Zendaya was clearly better, but lost because of demographics. Teens have no business on DWTS. It’s an adult show watched by adults and voted on by adults.

Wow this is surprising. I never believed it when I kept hearing about how this show is rigged until now. I mean Kellie was great, but really……this show is a joke.

Why so angry? It’s always the same. Your favorite doesn’t win, so it must be rigged. Grow up and wish them both well. Such sore losers out there.

Question for Whit:

I don’t understand your statement. In what way is DWTS a joke?
If your “fav” didn’t win, does not make the show a joke.

I was hoping that zendaya would win too but all the online polls had kellie leading the pack. Her freestyle dance was amazing. This comment was nothing but annoying!

Oh shut up, you silly fool. She is just as much white as she is black. I’m always glad to hear when people like you won’t watch again. What?? You’re not sure what I meant by people like you? I bet you think I meant black, because you are narrow minded.

Poor Zendaya. She had perfect scores in 6 out of the last 7 routines. She went 95 for 95 in the finals. What else could she have done? Nothing, obviously. DWTS is an adult show, watched by adults. I feel sorry for Zendaya. She’s just too young. I’m proud of her effort though. They shouldn’t allow anymore teens on DWTS. This isn’t the proper format. At least she can cry into her $430,000 paycheck. I’m sure’ll that’ll help ease the pain.

The judges made y’all pick a winner. Zen should have won because she did what the dance was and not just twist and turn and do fancy poses. Reminds me of last season when derek and whats her name did a dance that was not a samba and got two 10s. Nonsense! Loved Kellie’s personality but not her partner’s. And shows with judges in it can be unfair. Never watching that show again! btw i liked all the freestyles.
