Donald Driver, the Green Bay Packer, may have won many trophies, but the Mirror Ball Trophy won at the finals of the Dancing with the Stars may be the heaviest and priceless. Driver was crowned as the Champion with his partner Peta Murgatroyd on Tuesday night in Los Angeles.
Driver pumped his fists in the air and fell to the ground screaming, “its amazing” when the host Tom Bergeron awarded him the trophy. For Murgatroyd, this is the first trophy after being ousted last year. “You’re a brilliant artist,” judge Anna Inaba told Driver’s partner Murgatroyd.
Driver had been very consistent for the past 12 weeks with his “movin and jivin,” and the winning is attributed to his freestyle dance on Monday night.
Judge Bruno Tonioli complimented Driver, saying, “You really have the strategy of a Champion”
Runners up were Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas.
