Dancing With the Stars results for week nine took place on May 25th. The Dancing With the Stars Results Show for May 25th wasn’t about sending a couple home though, as this week we were finally told which couple was winning the 10th season of Dancing With the Stars. The final three couples competing for the 2010 Dancing With the Stars title were Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough, Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya, and Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Week Ten Dancing With the Stars May 24 Judges Scores
*Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough (Rumba, Freestyle) — 55/60
*Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Samba, Freestyle ) — 55/60
*Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya (Waltz, Freestyle ) — 52/60
The episode began with the three couples all performing a Tango for the judges, getting their final scoring in a dance that would be added to everything else. Nicole and Derek finished first (30 out of 30), Evan and Anna finished second (28 out of 30), and Erin and Maksim finished in third (26 out of 30). It was about exactly what would be expected in a Tango, and there weren’t any surprises in the revelation.
After that it went into filler-mode for the season finale, with past couples coming back to dance and of course some new couples. Shannon and Mark performed, then Buzz and Ashly performed, and then Jake and Chelsie took to the floor. Professional dancer Dimitri danced with Vienna Girardi to give ABC another plug, as this is the Vienna engaged to Jake Pavelka from their season on The Bachelor.
The first results came around the one hour mark of the season finale, when it was announced that Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy finished in third place.
Celebrities Kate Gosselin, Pamela Anderson, and Niecy Nash all performed after the announcement to have their final chances on the stage. ABC was certainly proving that they knew exactly how to take advantage of two full hours to just give the result of who won, as there was again way too much filler presented in this final episode.
Towards the end of the second hour, it was time for the top two couples to perform their last judged dance that would be added to their scores up to that point. Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough performed a Jive that got them another perfect score (30 out of 30), and Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya performed a Quickstep that netted them just 28 out of 30 for this dance. For those keeping track, just using judges scores, that left Nicole and Derek with 115 and Evan and Anna with 108.
Final Results were issued not too long after the final dances of the season.
The couple to win the 10th season of Dancing With the Stars was: Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough.
