Shame on you, Donny Osmond fans and the state of Utah. Did you really think he was a better dancer than Mya, more charismatic that Kelly Osborne? I think not. As I suspected in my worse-case scenario, the former teen idol walked away with the mirror ball and title of “Dancing with the Stars Season 9 Winner”. I knew the minute the judges awarded him a perfect score for his freestyle during last night’s telecast, Mya was dunzo.
As the “stars” were getting eliminated every week, Donny easily advanced and was never in real danger of getting ixnayed. I had this sneaky suspicion Osmond had this in the bag, considering his sister, Marie Osmond, managed to work her way to the final three despite having substandard dancing skills. While not inept like his sister, Donny was able to pull of most of the styles but nowhere near to the execution level that of Mya. Am I bitter? HELL YEAH.
I can deal with my favorite contestant not winning Idol, Survivor and ANTM but NOT winning DWTS- that’s simply blasphemous. The producers should follow SYTYCD’s lead, where they simply state every week, “Who is America’s Favorite Dancer?”. DWTS should change their title to, “Who’s the Most Popular Celeb (slash mildly dance)?”
Since I’m in a bitching mood, I”m going to target the DWTS production team. Shame on you for dragging out ,declaring the winner for two-long hours. Yes, I know you do it every year but this season seemed painfully slow. The only thing worth noting during the time-fillers was “THE VOICE”. Whitney Houston’s two performances were the highlights of the evening for me. She looked absolutely stunning during her “Million Dollar Bill” performance and though she looked like a pregnant canary for her second one, I was elated she choose “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”. YOU GO GURRRRL.
Were you happy that Donny won? Do you even watch Dancing with the Stars?
