Mark Ballas is my favorite pro dancer and always brought the very best out of his Olympic female partners! I remember how he changed former Olympic gold medalist ice skater Kristy Yamaguchi into a dance champion. And now, an Olympic gold gymnast who is the youngest and the baby of the DWTS Season 8 and brought her to the highest level of being a champion dancer. I loved her Freestyle which helped her and Mark clinched the disco trophy!

Shawn did a good job on the show. I thought Gilles, Melissa, and Lil Kim all were better than some of the past champs.

Sweet! Shawn and Mark
were so much better
than Melissa and
Tony. I still wish Steve-O
and Lacey won.
But still congrats
Shawn and Mark!!!
:D

There is no competition with teen-agers and cellphones. Clearly Giles and Cheryl were the better dancers, but consider the backlash had they beat the poor little teeny boper. Just glad professional dancer Melissa was third.

I have been a fan of Shawn’s since the Olympic trials. She is a gem and I am glad she won. Congrats little one and keep up the good work, you are a darling and i wish you the best in everything you do.
