I am a HUUUUUUUUUUUUGE fan of Dancing with the Stars! I’ve followed nearly every season, and have been impressed by these teams:
Kirstie Alley and Maks Chmerkovskiy (season 12)—They may have landed second place in the finals this season, but they’re first place in my book! Kirstie gave this competition her all, which is why I think she’s so awesome! Even in the face of some slip-ups—with Maks experiencing a little muscle pain, and Kirstie losing a shoe, during live performances—they hardly lost steam and always performed fantastically! Maks’ and Kirstie’s freestyle performance:
Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough (Season 11)— This season was an emotional experience for Jennifer as this season followed the passing of her Dirty Dancing co-star Patrick Swayze. She was the hopeful contender despite age and health issues, and sure enough, she landed in first place with Derek Hough! Some of the show’s professionals danced a tribute to Patrick Swayze.
Kelly Osbourne and Louis Van Amstel (season 9)—The reality star and daughter of rock and roll royalty herself says her time on the show was a life-changing experience. Her scores reflected improvement each week, and with Louis Van Amstel she placed third place overall. She even danced to her father’s hit song, “Crazy Train”!
