'Dancing with the Stars' crowns new champ after surprising season

Find out who is the victor of Dancing with the Stars 2017. And before that, the three remaining couples (David and his pro partner Lindsay Arnold, Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater, and Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy) had to do their final dance for the judges and the viewers, a fusion routine.

While Rashad Jennings & Emma Slater danced on Viennese Waltz and David Ross & Lindsay Arnold also performed Viennese Waltz in the first part called "Redemption Style". He went in with no expectations, just hoping to learn, work hard and have fun. "It was well worth it".

Then, Jennings was announced as the victor over Ross, who was the first ever baseball player on the ABC show. Over the fireplace. There's going to be some light shining on it. "But if you had told me I would have made it to the finals, I wouldn't have believed you", Jennings said.

"I've said this a billion times, but I didn't plan on being here past Week 3".

Kordei came in third and honestly, I wouldn't be as upset if she had come in second. "And when I heard them say our names, it was like 'We did it!' It's not something that happens every day". The shock of the night was frontrunner Normani finishing in third place, leaving Ross and Jennings to battle it out in the final two.


"God has been very kind to me... giving me this experience with you". And Carrie Ann Inaba closed out the judge's comments by telling David that she was sad she wouldn't get to watch him dance anymore. "It's probably the biggest compliment you can get".

Kordei' partner, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, said she is probably the best female contestant the show has ever had. "It's great to see the support I've gained".

"Dancing with the Stars" returns with a new installment in the fall.

National Football League star Rashad Jennings and his partner Emma Slater tell ABC Radio that no matter what happens now, they're already won: "It's fantastic that you get a chance to finish everything that you started". "I felt like I was a victor when they announced I was going to the finals".
