Stars: Carlos PenaVega, Nick Carter, Bindi Irwin, Alek Skarlatos, Network: ABC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: Nov. 23rd, 2015 What an emotional night on DANCING WITH THE STARS: The Season Finale, part one.  Bindi Irwin’s  & Derek Hough’s Freestyle was a tear jerker with everyone ending up sobbing as she danced her little heart out in honor of her dear departed Dad. It was a lovely and tender tribute, a performance that just may have sealed the deal with audiences and garnered her the trophy. But we won’t know for sure until tomorrow night.

Sadly, one of those couples, Alexa PenaVega & Mark Ballas were eliminated at show’s end. The other couple – Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough  – stayed strong and safe. Once …Read On »
