Ariana Greenblatt Reflects on 'DWTS Juniors' Experience in Final Blog For JJJ

We can hardly believe that the first season of Dancing With the Stars Juniors is over, and so are our exclusive blogs with Ariana Greenblatt!

Over the weekend, the 11-year-old actress and partner Artyon Celestine delivered two amazing performances on the final night of competition for a chance to win the first ever star trophy. However, the win went to Sky Brown and JT Church.

Ariana is opening up in her final blog about her entire experience on the show, how stoked she was for Sky to win and more.

Check out her exclusive behind-the-scenes blog below!

WOW what a finale! So many emotions. So many feels. There was no way someone wasn’t going to be disappointed with four teams left and only one winner but I just want to say…we are all winners and congrats to Sky. This last week was as hard and challenging as you would guess. We had to learn a lot of dances in a very short period of time. We were all tired and all a little banged up but it was the finals and everyone had their games face on. We knew this was the most important dance of the season and our last time to show America that we deserved to be there. All the hard, honest work came down to just one last performance show day!

In the end, we came up short in the eyes of the judges but I couldn’t have been more proud of my team. There was so much love and support from not only my family and friends, but all the Dancing with the Stars squad, starting with my mentor Brandon Armstrong. He really had his hands full with us but I’m pretty sure he loved almost every minute! Brandon, just because we haven’t found you a girlfriend yet doesn’t mean we have stopped trying. The interviews will still go on! LOL

Shout out to the DWTS family who showed me so much love during the season. There are so many wonderful people there, from security, hair and makeup and costume to producers, grips, camera men and women and sound technicians. There are just a whole bunch of wonderful people at DWTS but without question my rock 24/7 is my partner Artyon “Partyon” Celestine. From day 1 you made me feel special and supported. I spent more time with Arty than my own family and now he is part of my family. I will never forget all the hours of laughter, game nights, movies, dinners, shopping and just plain rehearsal time. I’m just so honored to have been your first partner in season 1 of juniors and if you ever need a dance partner, well you have my number. Love you Arty!

Well what to do after such an intense experience? Well you go to Disneyland of course! You see by the time the finals were done, it was my 11th birthday so I got some of the squad and had a great birthday dinner at my friend Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant PUMP! My friends at Deja Vu cakes even made me the most delicious cake with a DWTS: Juniors theme that included my 1940s look from the show! It’s all been so incredible and I just wanted to say thank you to all the fans and friends who supported #TeamBrandon. Especially thank you to my family at Disney Channel who made all this possible. I hope I made you all proud.

I love you so much! xoxo ~Ariana
