Who Won With The Stars?
ABC’s television show Dancing With The Stars had it’s 14th season finale last night, May 22, 2012. NFL star Donald Driver, wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers, won the shows last episode.
Donald Driver is the third NFL star to win the dance competition show. Previously, NFL stars Emmett Smith (season 3) and Hines Ward (season 12) had won the competition show. The judges gave Driver and his partner a perfect score after the team danced the Cha Cha.
“I would have to say it was a miracle,” Driver said. “We did what we had to do on the floor, and we knew we had to leave it up to the judges and the fans. The fans made the decision, and the fans loved our freestyle last night. I think the freestyle put us on top, and after that, there was no looking back.”
The two runners up were opera singer Katherine Jenkins, and actor William Levy. Katherine Jenkins partner was Mark Ballas. William Levy’s partner was Cheryl Burke. The show, hosted by Tom Bergeron, ran the 14th season finale for one hour last night.
The couples performed dances they had done previously that were also selected by the judges. Driver’s partner was dancer Peta Murgatroyd. Dancing With The Stars will continue with a 15th season.
