DWTS - And the winner is...

Well, they managed to drag out the drama for TWO HOURS. Three if you count the repeat of the finals broadcast on Monday. Every single cast member came back to dance one last dance and make their predictions or plug their projects. As I predicted, Cristian did not make the final cut. He's scheduled for surgery on his ruptured tendon on Friday. Fingers crossed that it goes well. The boy's got a bright future after raising his profile and Q score by doing the show.

After waiting an hour and a half, we got to see the last two standing dance their final dances. Kristi reprised her perfect scoring Jive and earned yet another 30 for a total of 90 judges points. Jason followed up with his classy Quickstep and upped his score from 29 points to a perfect 30. But the nine point deficit was not overcome by the viewers votes. Not surprisingly, Kristi Yamaguchi and her partner Mark Ballas took home the Mirrorball Trophy. I think we all saw this one coming from week one. I knew it would come down to a showdown between Kristi and Jason.

For the record, my predictions were correct two out of three times. Not too shabby. Now I have my Monday and Tuesday nights free again--until the Fall season of Dancing with the Stars begins...
