Watch Amber Riley’s Performances on the Dancing the Stars Season 18 Finale (VIDEOS)
Meryl Davis andMaksim Chmerkovskiy may have won Dancing With the Stars Season 18, but in our mind the real winner of last night’s (May 20) finale was reigning DWTS champ Amber Riley (Mercedes). Amber won the coveted Mirror Ball trophy when Season 17 ended last fall, and she came back to her old stomping grounds last night to remind people that, oh yeah, she can sing too!
To start, Amber belted out her first-ever single, “Colorblind” — which also appeared in a recent episode of Glee Season 5 — and we were blown away by her showstopping performance even though a majority of it was cut off for those of us watching on the east coast. Still, Amber looked amazing a figure-flattering black dress and soft curls, and we’re glad that she was able to share yet another song with us later in the night.
Next up, Amber donned a gorgeous gold dress and sang “Do Your Thang” while several of DWTS’s skilled dancers performed all around her. Needless to say, Amber certainly did her thang, and she was clearly happy to be back on the DWTS stage. After the performance the Glee actress took to Twitter and wrote, “Thanks for the love! It was fun! Thanks for having me back @DancingABC.”
