Hines Ward and Chelsea Kane are the ones to beat on Dancing With the Stars! The two teams battled it out on the dance floor last night with a sultry cha-cha, but only one team was crowned winner.
Hines and Chelsea had both won their previous rounds, to make it to the finals. They had less than four minutes to learn the routine to Lady Gaga‘s “Just Dance.”
Hines and pro partner Kym Johnson went first, and while his performance was good, it did not stand up to Chelsea’s fire.
Chelsea and Mark Ballas‘ high-energy performance was complete with dips and lifts.
In the end, Chelsea nailed her performance, and the judges’ decision was unanimously Chelsea. However, they seemed to find it difficult to let Hines down.
“Two couples of varying styles, ‘daddy cool’ and ‘little miss dynamite,’ ” Len Goodman said. “Both did well.”
“It’s like picking diamonds or pearls,” Bruno Tonioli chimed in. “Very, very hard.”
Carrie Ann Inaba added, “With that little time this really proves if you’re a dancer or just doing choreography. You’ve both proved yourselves dancers tonight.”
The cha-cha challenge has never been done before on DWTS. Chelsea gained 15 points for winning, which helps with viewer votes!
