Congratulations, Melissa!

DANCING WITH THE STARS: ALL-STARS – “Episode 1510″ – In the final one-hour performance show on Monday, each of the couples competed in a Super-Sized Freestyle during which they were allowed to add extra performers, incorporating all kinds of lifts and tricks to create an out-of-this-world entertaining routine, on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26 (8:00-9:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

I’m writing just after the finale of Dancing with the Stars All Stars!

The last three couples all delivered amazing final performances.  They were:

Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy 

Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani 

It was fun to be back with all of my DWTS friends, and even more exciting to be there in the studio when Melissa won the mirror ball trophy!  Everyone was thrilled that she’d won, and the atmosphere was just electric as the confetti rained down.

Melissa was not only a fun person to work with, she was kind to everyone, eager to learn new moves, and improved so much over the seasons.

Congratulations to Kelly, Shawn, and especially Melissa for your success this season!  All of you were delightful to watch!

    We voted for you and after you were voted off we voted for Melissa. You did well but the judges were determined to get you off asap. Melissa earned the win after you were gone.
    She worked so hard and danced so well.
