He may not have made it far enough in the competition to dance during the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ finale, but Babyface still took the stage. The singer performed a gorgeous rendition of ‘Walking In A Winter Wonderland’ on the Nov. 22 episode, and it totally got us in the holiday spirit!
After a brief performance from Felicia Barton, Babyface took center stage at the Grove to sing the holiday song, and it was absolutely breathtaking. And as if his singing wasn’t enough to get us pumped, we loved that he was joined by his professional partner from the show, Allison Holker, along with fellow pros, like Cheryl Burke and Artem Chigvintese. Can we talk about how incredible these dancers are?! So beautiful.
Babyface and Allison were unfortunately eliminated in the fourth week of competition, falling victim to a double elimination alongside Vanilla Ice, who also performed during the finale, on Oct. 4. The pair had a nice run on the show, though, earning a high score of 30/40 for their argentine tango in Week 2. Unfortunately, they had a bit of trouble with other styles, like the jive and tango, and the competition was just too good. It was a nice run, though!
With a finale jam-packed full of performances like this one, there was a whole lot to look forward to, but the real anticipation is over who will win the Mirror Ball for Season 23. The three finalists are James Hinchcliffe, partnered with Sharna Burgess, Laurie Hernandez, who’s with Val Chmerkovskiy and Calvin Johnson Jr., whose partner is Lindsay Arnold. It could literally go to any of the three talented superstars, and we can’t wait to see who takes it home this year!
