She score a huge win as the first African American woman to ever take top honors on “Dancing with the Stars” and Amber Riley was thrilled to talk about her victory on “Good Morning America” on Wednesday (November 27).
Joined by pro partner Derek Hough as well as runners up Corbin Bleu and Jack Osbourne, the “Glee” actress shared, “It meant a lot to me. Man, it was hard. It was something I’ve never done before and I put myself in a position to do something new and hard every single week. Every single week I was learning something I didn’t know. It was a very uncomfortable position to be in but I pulled it out.”
After ten grueling weeks of sore feet and countless hours of practice, it was finally time to name the last three finalists on Monday night's (November 25) episode of "Dancing with the Stars."
So just who made the cut? Well, each star and their pro partner had one last shot to impress the judges by taking part in three dance rounds this evening: a judges' pick, a samba relay and the always-popular freestyle.
Week eight of "Dancing with the Stars" was a treat for the audience as they were given a double dose of music legend Cher, who filled in as a guest judge for Len Goodman and also rocked out with a performance of her own.
With only seven dancers remaining, and the shocking elimination of Nicole Polizzi the week before, the celebs and their pros knew it was time to get down to business.
As the "official halfway point of the season" came around on Monday (October 21), fans of "Dancing with the Stars" were in for quite a few surprises!
At the start of the live episode, co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet explained that the contestants would have the option to score a few more judges' points by managing to improv dance when there was a random "Switch Up" in the music.
