After 10 weeks of dancing, tantrums, heel leads, and nip-slips, it’s all come down to this: the Dancing With the Stars Season 13 finale. So, who was crowned the Mirror Ball champion? Read on to find out.
War hero and soap star J.R. Martinez and his pro partner Karina Smirnoff won the Mirror Ball! This is Karina’s first Mirror Ball win on DWTS. J.R. was scored a 28 out of 30 for his "favorites" dance and a 30 out of 30 for his instant Samba.
Reality star Rob Kardashian and his pro partner Cheryl Burke came in second. Rob was scored a 26 out of 30 for his "favorites" dance and a 30 out of 30 for his instant Samba.
Ricki Lake and her pro partner Derek Hough were the first couple to get the boot, even after they scored the highest on their "favorites" dance and broke to the top of the leaderboard based on judges' scores. Sadly, factoring in judges and audience votes put them at the bottom of the top three.
Aside from the final three, the real star of the night had to be Carson Kressley, who returned to the ballroom to live out his dream: dancing with a Chmerkovskiy (this time Val). Carson and pro partner Anna Trebunskaya choreographed a group number with some of the Troupe members and Val to Madonna's "Vogue." Don't pout Maks, Carson said that he'll be sure to dance with the Maksim at the after party. Oh, to be a fly on the wall at that party!
