Dancing with the Stars finale

Weeping on social media, check. Talking to the press, check. Throwing yourself in front of the camera when the winner was announced, check. Actually winning Dancing with the Stars season 21, yeah, no. Obviously, Kim Zolciak was not eligible to win, as she was forced to withdraw from the competition in week 3, but that didn’t stop her from carrying on like it was national Kim Zolciak returns to Dancing with the Stars day.

In reality, Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough took home the mirror ball trophy last night, but Kim did finally get to perform the I Dream Of Jeannie inspired Samba she was schedule to do the week she withdrew. “It was very emotional,” shared Kim. “I had a stroke when I left. I had heart surgery three weeks ago. So, to be back here doing my dance, it goes way beyond the show and the experience. I am so thankful to be here.” See the weepy video Kim posted on Instagram after her 30 seconds of Samba below.

Dancing with the Stars Season 21 photos

ABC has released the Dancing with the Stars season 21 cast photos.

Above is my number one reason for watching this season, Don’t Be Tardy star Kim Zolciak with her partner Tony Dovolani. It would be an understatement to say Tony has his work cut out for him this season, but then again, he survived NeNe Leakes and Kate Gosselin. I’m also looking forward to watching Tamar Braxton dance with Val Chmerkovskiy (my favorite pro).

Below are photos of this season’s stars – Gary Busey, Kim, Bindi Irwin, Nick Carter, Hayes Grier, Victor Espinoza, Chaka Khan, Alek Skarlatos, Paula Deen, Alexa PenaVega, Carlos PenaVega, Andy Grammer, and Tamar – with their pro partners. Season 21 of Dancing with the Stars begins Monday, September 14th on ABC. Do you plan to watch this season?

Dancing with the Stars Season 21

ABC announced the Dancing with the Stars season 21 stars this morning on Good Morning America. Most of the cast had been revealed ahead of time, but there were a few surprises.

Much to our surprise, Don’t Be Tardy star Kim Zolciak isn’t the only reality TV star dancing for the mirror ball trophy this season. Braxton Family Values and Tamar & Vince star Tamar Braxton is competing against Kim.

As for the pro dancers, one of my favorite Dancing with the Stars pros, Anna Trebunskaya, is back. Unfortunately, she has been paired with Gary Busey. Why can’t I have nice things?!? Also disappointing, Peta Murgatroyd is out for the season due to an ankle injury. Peta was supposed to dance with “Honey I’m Good” singer Andy Grammer. He’ll dance with Allison Holker instead. Check out the complete list below and let us know if you plan to watch.
