Dancing With The Stars crowned a winner in the season finale last night, and the disco ball was awarded to former TV host, Brooke Burke, the third woman ever to win the title.
“Unbelievable!” she exclaimed after being crowned champ. “Physically, mentally, emotionally!”
She and partner Derek Hough got a perfect 30 for their final dance, the Viennese waltz. They earned a combined score of 58 out of 60 for their freestyle and samba routines on Monday’s show. Those scores were combined with viewers’ votes to determine the winner.
“You are a star. You proved today what you are doing with your soul,” judge Carrie Ann Inaba told a beaming Burke. “You guys deserve the trophy more than anyone else.”
While some of us rooted for former NFL champ Warren
Sapp to smile his way into the number one spot, and others longed for their favorite boy band-er, Lance Bass, it was the technically superior Burke who came out on top this time around.
Fans of the show love to watch not only the tanned, taut, and tacky dancers coach our favorite D-listers week after week, they also love to gawk at the ballroom fashion – which more often than not includes thousands of dollars of diamonds.
The lunging leading ladies often adorn themselves with glittering bangles to give the judges that little something extra to gawk at. And co-host Samantha Harris is a well-known jewelry fashion plate. One record-breaking dance session had her wearing over $1 million worth of diamond and platinum jewels from Tacori.
But Samantha and Brooke aren’t the only ones who can sparkle on the dance floor. Jewelry.com has the perfect diamond gift for the Dancing With The Stars fan in your household.
