Donny Osmond Dances to the Top
Posted by Mr. Feeny on November 25, 2009
As I picked back in August, Donny Osmond was crowned the ninth champion of Dancing with the Stars last night. As much as I like Donny, I never got to watch this season. Too many shows on my list — especially on Monday — to set aside time for a very long reality show. But my mother kept me informed all season long.
Apparently, while other competitors like Mya jumped way ahead and kept wowwing judges week-in and week-out, Donny treated the season as a marathon. Despite his stage background, learning the dance steps came a little harder for him than the pop singer. So he progressively got better each week, with his legions of fans keeping him in it. Truly, he’s just too darn charming to vote off.
But, he really did become a great dancer by the end of it. His first and only perfect score came with his very final dance. What a way to go. And although his final night of performances netted 13 less points than Mya from the judges, that was no problem for the voting public to overcome. Donny’s stint on Dancing with the Stars was long-awaited and I’m glad he didn’t disappoint. I just wish I had had time to see him.
Again, with Hulu, I can’t put videos directly into our post. So see the video player to the right for Donny’s final show-stopping number…or visit this link.
