On Tuesday’s Dancing With the Stars, the final three contestants danced for the mirror ball. Calvin Johnson Jr., James Hinchcliffe, and Laurie Hernandez — all top-level athletes — each performed a favorite routine from the season and a fusion dance that mixed two ballroom styles.
Calvin Johnson Jr. was eliminated first, leaving Hinchcliffe and Hernandez to hold their breath as Tom Bergeron announced the winner.
That winner was Laurie Hernandez. She said, “I just want to thank everyone for the support and riding along this crazy roller coaster of my life. My goal is just to inspire others. And thanks for being there for me.”
Luckily, this won’t be the last dancing we’ll see of Hernandez, as she was announced to be a member of the DWTS live tour.
Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC. Watch clips and full episodes of Dancing With the Stars for free on Yahoo View.
