The finale of Dancing With The Starswas last night and Mya came out shining, as she was only three points away from perfection.
Mya made it clear she intends to win that trophy. “I haven’t worked this hard for this long not to win this thing,” she said Monday night. “That trophy is mine.”
Coming in a close second to Mya was Donny Osmond who scored with 85 out of 90 points. He and professional partner Kym Johnson earned a perfect score of 30 for their Broadway-inspired freestyle routine, which head judge Len Goodman called “an absolute show-stopper.”
Kelly Osbourne kept smiling despite landing in third place with 76 points, confessing, “I never thought we’d get this far.”
Each star will perform again on Tuesday’s episode, when a new “Dancing” champion will be crowned.

David Alan Grier recently talked about his Dancing With The Stars weight loss. The actor told US, “I’ve actually lost 26 pounds. The first day I came in, I was like, ‘I’m not going to lose weight – we’re waltzing!”
David’s extensive dancing routine includes 3 hours of daily aerobics with his dancing partner Kym Johnson. Kym adds, “You’re burning a lot more calories because you’re actually moving your whole body, as opposed to doing just weights.” Grier says he had also been on a strict diet of egg whites, fruits, and yogurt.
