It’s been a wild and unexpected season, and it’s all come down to this! The season 27 winner was just crowned on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ — see who won below!
The two hour season finale of DWTS, which took place live on Nov. 19, featured a ton of amazing performances. Dan + Shay sang their hit single “Speechless,” while Lauren Daigle belted out her single “You Say”. Avril Lavigne made a triumphant return to the microphone, and voted-off star John Schneider performed as well. There was a cool number by Robin Thicke, and an impressive group dance by the guys accompanied by Tinashe’s gorgeous voice. But also, there was amazing dancing!
Each of the final four couples danced a repeat dance as well as a freestyle. Judges’ votes and your at-home online-only votes will be added up for a final tally to determine a winner. To kick off the night, Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten did a repeat of their Argentine Tango to “Swan Lake” from week 2. They previous got a 25. Len Goodman said it was lovely and that overall, she has been consistently good. Bruno Tonioli said she had incredible focus. Carrie Ann Ibana said it was a poetically beautiful dance. They got a 27 out of 30 this time around!
Bobby Bones and Sharna Burgess did their repeat dance to their Cha Cha to “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer. They got a 20 originally. Bruno said, “I understand why you’re here. Whatever you do is so totally you, it’s irresistible.” Carrie Ann said he has proven that hard work and determination pays off. Len said he gives him joy. They got a 24!
Evanna Lynch and Keo Motsepe did their Halloween Tango to “Disturbia” by Rihanna. They got a 29 the first time — hard to beat! “You are the most improved, by far,” Carrie Ann said. Len said he told her to improve her posture and frame last time: “mission accomplished.” Bruno said it was crisp and clean, balancing power and beauty perfectly. They got a perfect score of 30! AND she got a special good luck message from her Harry Potter co-star Emma Watson!
Finally in the first round, Milo Manheim and Witney Carson did their repeat Charleston to “Living in New York City” with a live performance by Robin Thicke. In week 2, they got a score of 26. Len said he has so much confidence and maturity. Bruno said he was sharper than ever. “You are destined for great things.” Carrie Ann said he is “ridiculously amazing. You are the one to beat.” They got a perfect 30!
Then, it was the freestyle round. Alexis and Alan danced to “Head Above Water” — a live performance by Avril Lavigne. “Sometimes the song can overwhelm the dance but not tonight. Really, really good,” Len said. Bruno said it was very difficult technically and emotionally. “It’s the best dancing I’ve ever seen of you. You’ve peaked at the exact right moment,” Carrie Ann said. They got a perfect 30!
Bobby and Sharna did their dance to a remix of “The Greatest Show” by Panic at the Disco. “That was the perfect freestyle for your free spirit,” Bruno said. Carrie Ann said he was shining brightly. “You’ve not always been the judge’s champion but you’ve been the people’s champion. Tonight, you’ve become my champion,” Len said. They got a perfect 30 — their highest score ever.
Milo and Witney did a freestyle to “Ain’t No Sunshine” (Lido Remix) by Bill Withers and it was AMAZING. Carrie Ann said, “My mind is blown. We’ve never had a freestyle with that much content. You’ve grown from a boy to a man.” Len said it was brilliant. Bruno praised his musicality, and said, “you are an outstanding talent, you’re a star.” They got a 30!
Evanna and Keo’s Freestyle was to “It’s Oh So Quiet” by Björk. “It showed every part of your dancing off beautifully,” Len said. “It was bright, it was quirky, it had character. Keo, you let her shine and she was a leading lady,” Bruno said. “There is something so special about you,” Carrie Ann said. They got a perfect 30!
In the end, only one couple can be the champions and take home the coveted Mirrorball! The winners are …. Bobby and Sharna! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!
