Kellie Pickler was named the Dancing with the Stars winner last night. The country singer’s dance moves beat out Disney star Zendaya Coleman, football player Jacoby Jones and Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman for the title.
“This is amazing,” the 26-year-old singer said after being named the winner of the show’s 16th season. She, along with the remaining two finalists, had to perform one final routine – steps they learned less than an hour before their turn on stage. Talk about pressure.
But Pickler and her dance partner Derek Hough delivered a super-energetic jive that won judges’ praise.
“What a perfect ending to a wonderful journey," judge Carrie Ann Inaba said.
