The three finalists performed one more dance during the finale of Dancing with the Stars. At the end of the night, entertainer Donny Osmond and partner Kym Johnson were crowned winners of season nine. “I did it!” Osmond exclaimed, promptly rushing to the audience to find his wife, Debbie, whom he carried across the stage.
Donny beat out the two other finalist celebrities — singer Mya, 30, who had consistently gotten high marks from the judges for her technical skills, and reality show star Kelly Osbourne, 25, who came in third place.
“I’m just so happy to have made it to the finals,” Mya said after the loss. Kelly was also gracious, thanking the audience and saying she had “grown so much” during the show.
During the result show on Tuesday, the show welcomed back all the celebrities from season 9. Whitney Houston also performed yesterday night. At age 51, Donny becomes the oldest winner ever to win the mirrored-ball trophy. He also beat his sister Marie Osmond, who came in third when she competed on the ABC show back in 2007.
