On the ‘Dancing With The Stars’ finale on Nov. 26, Amber Riley should walk away with the mirror ball trophy — here’s why.
It’s been quite the season of Dancing With The Stars –– from shocking eliminations to iconic, best ever dances, it’s been a roller coaster of emotions. But the end is here, and I think Amber Riley and Derek Hough deserve to win.
‘Dancing With The Stars’ Finale — Amber Riley Should Win

Amber and Derek have the highest cumulative score of any team this season. Despite that fact, Amber is the one who deserves to win. But first, let me talk about the other teams.
Corbin and Karina — they are magnificent. I was astounded by their Michael Jackson tribute during the Nov. 25 episode and I think they are amazing. However, when they showed the package of his childhood, it was clear Corbin has been dancing his entire life! It’s kind of like how, in my opinion, athletes have an advantage. He studied under Debbie Allen! He is amazing and he should be, because he has trained for years and years, not 10 weeks.
Jack and Cheryl — Jack’s story is inspiring and he has grown tremendously throughout the season. However, he just doesn’t measure up to the caliber of Corbin or Amber.
Why Amber & Derek Should Win
Amber had some dance experience but no where near the amount that Corbin had. She has battled her injured knees throughout the entire season and never complained. When she dances, the entire room lights up! Her facial expressions are flawless and amazing. She puts her whole body into every single performance — you can tell she is a perfectionist and pushes herself to the max.
Amber inspires girls, just as she does on Glee, to be themselves and reach for their dreams. I think she is an incredibly hard worker and really deserves the trophy!
Update: Congrats Amber — she won season 17!
