HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (WJLA) – The winners of Season 17 of Dancing with the Stars is 'Glee' actress Amber Riley and her partner Derek Hough.
On Monday night, which was also part one of the finale, a party took place just minutes before the celebration you see on T.V. The live studio audience is energized with a gigantic dance party on the ballroom floor.
And Cory Alamida is the man behind the mic.
"There's no sleep in my life," the avid Red Bull drinker says.
Seven-hundred people are squeezed into their seats, and someone has to figure out where they go. That responsibility falls on Debbie Clark, the audience coordinator.
And, you never know who you're going to run into on the red carpet.
Mr. Las Vegas himself stopped to chat with ABC7's Natasha Barrett and gave her a kiss!
After the show, in the midst of all the applause, one of the biggest surprises on Monday night came from the man who went home -- comedian Bill Engvall ripped off his shirt at the end of his dance on live television.
Meanwhile, Glee actress Amber Riley showed off her sexy side on the dance floor. Coming into the finale, she says she may be exhausted, but feels great.
“It felt amazing," she says.
Reality TV star Jack Osbourne revealed to ABC7’s Natasha Barrett that he doesn’t think he’s much competition for the others. But he remains emotional about his success so far.
“Nor did I think I would cry on national TV... [I'll never] live that down amongst my friends," Osbourne says.
Osbourne and his partner Cheryl Burke came in third place, while Corbin Bleu and his partner Karina Smirnoff came in second.
