Stars: Calvin Johnson Jr., James Hinchcliffe, Laurie Hernandez
Network: ABC, aired Tuesday
Original Telecast: Nov. 22, 2016
The glitter is gone, the stage is bare and mounds of confetti have been swept from the floor as season 23 on DANCING WITH THE STARS ends with a new champion duo – Olympian Laurie Hernandez and Val Chmerkovskiy! Race car driver James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess ended the season in second place while ex-footballer Calvin Johnson, Jr. and Lindsey Arnold finished third. The night was a spectacular event with a slippery when wet set at The Grove (who thought that was a good idea?) and dazzling performances as usual with all the cast returning for one more journey around the ballroom. Hernandez and Hinchcliffe seemed to be tied as favorites from the get go but Hernandez’s sparkly personality and her winning teammate combo with Chmerkovskiy must have sealed the deal for America. All three couples ended the night with a last dance earning them all perfect scores to add to the previous night’s scores. Ironically they finished in the exact places the judges placed them with their scores. Stay tuned for Season 24 in March.
