Viewers wished upon a star for their favorite Dancing With the Stars duo to win, and they weren’t disappointed! Last night during the two-hour season finale, #TeamFishUponAStar outshined the two other finalists and took the coveted Mirrorball trophy home as Season 25 champions.We’re so proud!The holiday spectacular kicked off with an opening number, featuring a reunion of all 13 of this season’s couples at The Grove! There were show-stopping performances—such as Nick Lachey’s new and never-before-heard track “Someone to Dance With,” inspired by his time on Dancing With the Stars. We love this photo:Other performances during the night included Kelsea Ballerini singing “Legends,” Lindsey Stirling featuring Becky G performing “Christmas C’Mon,” and Jordan Fisher singing a joyful “Sleigh Ride”/”What Christmas Means to Me” medley with Debbie Gibson. To get us even more in the holiday spirit, there was also a special performance from this winter’s “Dancing With the Stars: Live! Light Up the Night Tour,” as well as a number inspired by the new Frozen featurette, “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.” You can catch the featurette playing before Coco for a limited time starting today!
For the final showdown we were all waiting for: each couple gave it all they got with two dances—the first was a repeat of their favorite dance from earlier in the season, while the second routine was part of a “24-Hour Fusion Challenge” that gave them less than 24 hours to prepare a fusion of two contrasting dance styles. It was intense!
Based on the judges’ points and our votes from November 20, combined with the judges points and online-only viewer votes from the repeat dances and “24-Hour Fusion Challenge,” Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold were ultimately the champions! We’re so honored to have followed #TeamFishUponAStar and all the other talented couples on their Dancing With the Stars journey, and can’t wait until the next season!
