The champ is here! The Mirrorball trophy was awarded on the finale of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ on November 21. Read our recap right here!
It’s been a long season and now we have come to the Dancing With The Stars finale! The November 21 episode was a Christmas spectacular, as the finalist performed at The Grove AND in the ballroom. Each finalist had to dance twice in this finale — the first was a repeat performance of a dance from earlier in the season. And the final test was a 24 hour fusion challenge. See who won DWTS below!
First up, Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas did their Jive to “Jitterbug.” “You are such an accomplished dancer,” judge Len Goodman said. Bruno Tonioli said it was so crisp and almost too hot to handle. “You have a star quality that is unlike any star quality we’ve ever seen,” Carrie Ann Inaba said. They got a perfect 30!
Next, Frankie Muniz and Witney Carson did their Argentine Tango from Disney Night. “Smoldering, compelling, but totally in focus. Even better the second time around,” Bruno said. Carrie Ann said it was bigger and better. Len said it was fantastic! They got a perfect 30!
Then, Kelsea Ballerini sang “Legends,” from her latest album while Val and Jenna danced…AND THEY KISSED AT THE END! They’re dating, FYI.
Back to the dancing! Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold did their week 2 Samba. Wooooow. He looked like a pro. “You make it look easy but nothing about that was easy…much, much, much improved,” Carrie Ann said. Len loved the great performance, the great choreography, and the great technique. Bruno said he “draws the audience in like a magnet. World class!” They got a perfect 30!
Next, all the male pros plus Terrell Owen danced as sexy Santas to Justin Bieber‘s “Drummer Boy.” Later, we were treated to a live performance from Lindsey Stirling and Becky G, as they performed “Christmas C’Mon,” from Lindsey’s new holiday album, Warmer in the Winter. Then, Jordan sang a festive medley of “Sleigh Ride” and “What Christmas Means to Me” with Debbie Gibson.
Next up, the 24-hour fusion challenge! Mark and Lindsey did a Tango & Cha Cha fusion. Len said she is a wonderful performer. Bruno loved the cheeky Cha Cha Cha and the controlled Tango, and that they were seamlessly blended. Carrie Ann said it was so unique and had great expression. They got a perfect 30!
Frankie and Witney did a Foxtrot and Tango fusion. Bruno said he was a little bouncy, but that it was a very good performance. Carrie Ann said he is the heart and soul of the show. Len said he may not have always been the judges’ champion, but he is the people’s champion. They got a 28 out of 30.
Jordan and Lindsay did a Paso and Salsa fusion. “Your skills are out of this world. What you’ve done with Lindsay…she has grown as a pro,” Carrie Ann said. Len said, “I think you are the most complete male celebrity ever on Dancing With The Stars.” Bruno agreed, and said he is one of the best EVER on the show. They got a perfect 30!
Finally, we saw an emotional performance from Nick Lachey, who sang his brand new song “Someone to Dance With,” which was inspired by his Dancing with the Stars journey.
No surprise here — Jordan and Lindsay are the Dancing With The Stars Season 25 champions!
