VIDEO: Amber Riley Snags the Mirror Ball Trophy on DANCING WITH THE STARS!
In the last element of competition during the two-hour Season Finale of ABC's DANCING WITH THE STARS, the couples performed a new routine as part of a "24 Hour Fusion Challenge." During Monday night's show, the remaining couples choose songs for their competitors that Fuse two contrasting dance styles and they had less than 24 hours to prepare that dance for judges' points last night.
"They are two pretty tough dances", said Riley of the dance combination. "Lots of bouncing and I'm definitely tired right now." But she added, "This has been an amazing experience. I'm really happy that I said 'yes!'
Agreed Len, "a couple of times throughout the season, I've been a little bit critical of you but I have never lost the joy I get from watching you. You are wonderful!"
Added Bruno, "that's how you Quick Step the South American way! You did not put a foot wrong."
The couple received a Perfect Score of 30 and became the newest champions of DANCING WITH THE STARS! Congratulations Amber and Derek!
