On tonight’s Grand Finale, the newest Dancing With The Stars winners were revealed! So, who won Dancing With The Stars 2010, and brought home the mirror-ball trophy for Season 10? Not so fast. It took ABC a full two hours, three, if you count the encore of last night’s performance show, to reveal just who won Dancing With The Stars 2010!
Dancing With The Stars Season 10 Winners
Before the Dancing With The Stars Grand Finale results would be announced, and it could be known who won Dancingn With The Stars 2010, the Top 3 had to perform a dance of their choice for the judges. The scoring on this “Favorites” dance set would be as follows: 30 points as First Place, 28 as Second Place and 26 points to represent Third Place. Evan Lysacek and Anna, Nicole Sherzinger and Derek and Erin Andrews and Maks all chose the Argentine Tango for their routines. While all the Tangos were impressive, there is only one First Place. Nicole and Derek earned the perfect 30, while Evan and Anna took Second with 26. Erin and Maks took Third.
Indeed, on tonight’s Dancing With The Stars Grand Finale, there would be only one winning couple. Ultimately, Erin Andrews and Maks would be voted off and eliminated from the competition, leaving the Top Two to dance a final dance to prove their talent.
So who won Dancing With The Stars 2010 during the Dancing With The Stars Season 10 Finale on May 25? As predicted right here, Nicole and Derek took it home in a big way!
Nicole Sherzinger and her partner Derek Hough sealed the ‘DWTS winners’ deal with their impeccable, high-energy Jive to “Proud Mary”, while Evan and Anna gave it their all with a fun and lively Quick-Step. DWTS judge Carrie Ann said to Nicole following her Jive, “You set this place on fire!” And indeed she did.
Also of note during the Dancing With The Stars Grand Finale special:
-Before we found out who won Dancing With The Stars 2010, Kate Gosselin attempting a re-do on her Paso Doble to Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi”. (Try saying that one five times fast.) While she seemed to have more fun with the dance, and be more comfortable in her own skin, Kate’s dance skills are still fairly non-existent.
-Before the actual DWTS winner was anounced, Utah Valley University took home the “baby” mirror-ball trophy for best college dance team. Go UVU!
-Former Dancing With The Stars Season 10 contestants, including Shannon Doherty, Buzz Aldrin, Pam Anderson and Niecy Nash performed new dance routines, and Chad Ochocinco was in the audience, nursing an injury but supporting his “team”. Jake and Aiden returned for a quick turn on the DWTS dance floor, as well.
-For Pam Anderson’s Dancing With The Stars Finale appearance, she descended seductively from the rafters on a neon aeriel swing-seat contraption, oozing sexuality without apology. It was very Pam, and she ended her routine appropriately, as well: by literally crawling over a pile of gorgeous, strapping young men.
So, the DWTS winner results are in, and the Grand Finale has come to a close. Just as predicted, Nicole Sherzinger was the star who won Dancing With The Stars 2010 during tonight’s results show and finale, and for very good reason. Nicole’s grace, natural talent, professional ability and attention to detail and artistry made her a clear choice for the mirror-ball trophy!
