Season 17 of “Dancing with the Stars” brought excitement, drama and surprise exits, but on Tuesday (November 26), the coveted mirror ball trophy was hoisted by Amber Riley and pro Derek Hough.
After beating out fierce competition from Corbin Bleu and Jack Osbourne the dancing duo garnered the most votes to be crowned the champion.
Bleu and his partner Karina Smirnoff landed in second place, while Osbourne and Cheryl Burke pulled off a respectable third place finish, which matched Jack”s sister Kelly”s standing in her season on the show.
It was a big win for Hough, who has been the winning pro five times, with previous wins coming in seasons seven, ten, eleven and sixteen.
For her part, Amber wanted viewers to know, “You can do whatever you put your mind to!”
