Apolo Anton Ohno takes home the gold on Dancing With the Stars

Apolo and his partner Julianne won this season’s Dancing With the Stars competition. Yay!

It came down to Apolo and Joey Fatone as the two finalists. Laila Ali was the first to go from the final routine, based on fan votes. And in the final minutes, Apolo and Julianne took the title, as Joey and Kym earned the runner-up spot.

As I wrote previously, I was hoping/predicting that Apolo would win. Although, I think Joey and Kym’s freestyle performance will go down in television history as one of the most memorable dances ever performed on the show, much like Drew and Cheryl’s Ride a Horse, Save a Cowboy routine.

The Dancing With the Stars finale gave fans a chance to see all the contestants one final time and hear their final thoughts on the show. I didn’t realize I’d missed Billy Ray Cyrus so much! On a funny note, John Ratzenberger joked that he wanted host Tom Bergeron’s job.

The over-stuffed finale dragged on for what seemed like hours. Honestly, how do people watch this show without a fast forward button?

It was nice to see the past champions on the front row. Kelly Monaco, Drew Lachey, and Emmitt Smith all chimed in with their thoughts on the show and how it had changed their lives.

I did observe one interesting thing, while watching the show. Is it just me or do Julianne and Kym look like twins? I swear, those beautiful blondes look identical, until they speak.

After watching all the clips from the past four seasons, I’d like to see a Dancing With the Stars All-Star Dance Off. (ABC, I’m taking credit for coining this idea right now.)

How cool would it be to see all the champions face off against one another, along with some of the best dancers in previous seasons? (i.e. Mario Lopez, Joey Lawrence, Stacy Keibler and Joey Fatone.) Now that’s one competition that would be must-see-TV.

For now, the show is over and my Mondays and Tuesdays are free again. Hmmm…do you think Maks gives private lessons?

I was so happy to see him win. He deserved it!

Yes, I had trouble telling Kym and Julianne apart, too. It's eerie, isn't it?
