'Dancing With the Stars' Finale Recap: Season 19 Champion Pulls Off Last Minute Win

Dancing With the Stars finalists

OMG. Who else was totally on the edge of their seat during the finale of Dancing With the Stars tonight? In the history of the show, there really hasn't been a tougher group of finalists competing for the mirror ball trophy, and it was anybody's game tonight. I mean, be honest, would you have been upset with the winner, whether it was Sadie Robertson, Alfonso Ribeiro, or Janel Parrish?


When it was announced that Bethany Mota was going home last night, I have to admit that I breathed a huge sigh of relief. Even though she's a beautiful dancer and such an inspirational person, she still doesn't quite have the same edge that the remaining three contestants do.

And out of all of the seasons of DWTS, last night's freestyle routines had to be the best ever.

Sadie and Mark's Super Mario Brothers routine was fun, cute, and made all of us '80s and '90s kids totally nostalgic for our childhood. She really has proven herself to be a legit dancer this season, and she's totally come out of her shell.

And then there was Janel and Val's emotional freestyle, which was so intense, we didn't know whether to smile, cry, or go take a cold shower immediately after they left the ballroom floor. (Go ahead and admit it. You were a little turned on too.)

As for Alfonso and Witney's tap routine, they showed once again that they're in this competition to win it, and Alfonso reminded us why we can't help but adore him. He's genuine, determined, and such a breath of fresh air.

But alas, there can only be one winner, so without further ado, congrats to Alfonso and Witney for being crowned the winners of DWTS season 19!! OMG. If they hadn't taken the first place spot on the leader board with their final dance, odds are good they would've lost the mirror ball trophy for sure.

Even though it was tough to see Janel and Sadie come in third and second, respectively, come on, you gotta love that Carlton managed to pull off a win.

Are you happy that Alfonso won DWTS?
