The competition was fierce on season 14 of “Dancing With The Stars” but Green Bay Packers football player Donald Driver and his professional dance partner Peta Murgatroyd have emerged victorious. We’ve live recapped the performance episode from last night, as well as tonight’s elimination here.
On last night’s episode, they took on their Argentine Tango for the judge’s choice with Carrie Ann Inaba as their mentor. Carrie Ann commented that she loved it the first time and she loved it again. Len called the dance a vast improvement over their first performance of the same dance. Bruno called it “strong storytelling.” For their efforts, they received a total of 29 points out of 30.
They ended round two on a strong note for their Freestyle dance. Carrie Ann was left dancing on the judges’ table. Len said that “in football, catches win matches and here, chances win dances.” Bruno called it a “country-inspired triumph”. For their efforts, they received a perfect score.
On tonight’s show, they performed an encore performance of their Freestyle dance from last night. It was still a really cute dance. Donald was really working it once more.
Later in the show, they performed a Cha Cha Cha for the judge’s votes. He danced shirtless and really strutted his stuff, much to the delight of the audience. Carrie Ann said he is a fierce competitor and he has a love for the show. He’s determined to win. Len said his feeling is that no one is a loser tonight and all three of them are absolute winners tonight. He’s the best footballer they’ve had. Bruno said it was another massive hit for “Donald the magnificent”. He’s improved week after week. The judges gave them a total of 30 points.
After the viewer’s votes were tallied with the judges’ scores, Tom Bergeron announced that Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd have won this season of the show. Prior to that, Tom announced that William and Cheryl have landed in third place, with Katherine and Mark in second place.
