When Dancing With the Stars came back on, Tom asked the celebs to say a few last words to their pro dance partners. It was a cool, touching segment, with the celebs expressing their heartfelt thanks.
“Let’s get to some results,” Tom said. “The couple in third place is — Janel and Val.” Janel said she “was lucky to just be standing next to him.”
“One of these couples will become the new champion of Dancing With the Stars when we come back,” Tom Bergeron said. The show went to yet another commercial break.
Finally, the winner of the Mirror Ball Trophy on Dancing With the Stars was announced when the show came back from the commercial break. “alfonso, you said you waited 10 years for your shot at this Mirror Ball Trophy. The winners and new champions of Dancing With the Stars are — the wait is over! Alfonso and Witney!” They gve each othe a big hug.
“I’ve wanted this forever! I don’ know what to say!” Witney said “He worked so hard for this! He deserves it!”
