'Dancing with the Stars' Season 16 Crowns the Best Celebrity Dancer
"Dancing with the Stars" season 16 turned the lights on the ballroom for one last time on Tuesday, May 21 for the final results show. Before the announcement of the winner, the show welcomed back all celebrity contestants from this season.
Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough did an encore of their acclaimed freestyle routine, before Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas were eliminated. "This is has been the best experience of my life," she said, looking disappointed. She added, "Good luck to you three. I love you guys so much."
After more routines and performances by musical guests, the three remaining pairs danced one last time. Jacoby Jones danced a salsa, while Zendaya Coleman and Kellie Pickler danced a jive. All three of them got perfect score of 30 from the judges for their instant dances.
"American Idol" alum Jessica Sanchez took the stage to belt out "Feel This Moment" before the final result was revealed. Kellie was declared the winner of this season and took home the Mirror Ball trophy, while Zendaya and Jacoby finished in the second and third place respectively. "Oh my gosh! This is amazing!" the country music singer gushed.
Since there was some trouble with the online voting, host Tom Bergeron pointed out that only votes cast on Facebook, via texts and by phone were factored in to the final tally.
Other stars delivering musical performances that night were former "DWTS" contestant Wynonna Judd who sang "I Want to Know What Love Is", PSY who sang his new viral hit "Gentleman", and Pitbull with "Don't Stop the Party".
