STAGE TUBE: Highlights From Last Night's DWTS Season Finale
After 10 weeks of highly entertaining performances and phenomenal dancing, Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd, Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas and William Levy & Cheryl Burke competed for the final time on the DANCING WITH THE STARS Results show last night.
In the two-hour Season Finale, the excitement began with a stunning opening number with the entire cast and the Troupe. Tuesday night, all of this season's eliminated couples returned to the ballroom to perform some of the most memorable routines, as well as a few new surprises, including a special musical performance from Grammy® Award-winning Gladys Knight. Grammy® Award-winning superstar Kelly Clarkson also lit up the ballroom singing a medley of her hit songs "Dark Side" and "Stronger," accompanied by Kym Johnson, Tony Dovolani, Anna Trebunskaya, Tristan MacManus and the Troupe. And in the final element of the competition, the three finalists performed a new routine in the "24 Hour Challenge" - in which they had 24 hours to pair their dance style of choice to music given to them after Monday night's show. The routine was scored out of 30 and rounded out the judges' scores across both nights.
Hosted by Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Brooke Burke-Charvet ("Dancing with the Stars" Season Seven Champion), the celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned Ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
