The Dancing with the Stars season finale was tonight and the final three included Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy; Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas, and Hines Ward and Kym Johnson. So who did America vote for?
The winner of this season’s disco ball trophy with the highest combined judges score and fan votes was Hines Ward and his professional partner Kym Johnson.
“Starting this competition, I never thought I’d be in the finals, but I owe it all to Kym. I want to thank the judges — and all the fans,” said the Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver.
On Monday night’s performance show, the winning duo received a combined score of 59 out of 60 possible points for their quick-step and freestyle. This put them in a tie with Chelsea and Mark. Kirstie finished third for the night with a score of 54.
It was just last week that Hines fell on Kym during rehearsals, sending her to the hospital to have her neck checked out. She wore a brace for a brief while, but was able to return to the competition.
