The first all-female finalists finale of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars” featured all-stars Shawn Johnson, Kelly Monaco and Melissa Rycroft in a very closebattle Tuesday night for the mirror ball trophy. However, after taking a huge risk in Monday night’s performance show, the stars and their pro partners; Derek Hough, Val Chmerkovskiy and Tony Dovolani, performed “instant dances.”
With all six competitors getting their dance-style instructions less than an hour before hitting the floor, the field was whittled down to two couples. First up was my “General Hospital” pal Kelly Monaco, who was the first to be eliminated, it came down to Johnson and Rycroft. And the winner was … Rycroft!
Amid showering confetti, the reality star and Dovolani clutched the trophy. They embraced and jumped up and down.
Rycroft was the only competitor among the final three all-stars to not have won before. Dovolani had labored 14 seasons without previously winning.
