Dancing With The Stars.....The Winner is......
Kristi Yamaguchi came into the "Dancing With the Stars" finale with a perfect score and left with the mirrorball trophy. The first woman in four years to win the coveted trophy.
"This is just the icing on the cake," Kristi said after her victory Tuesday night. "I honestly thank all the fans out there ... everyone who's made this a dream experience."
"Obviously the fans are the deciding factor here," Yamaguchi said, "and I can't say enough to thank them."
She also had plenty of fans among her fellow competitors, who said she deserved the title.
Taylor, the massive but graceful pro football star, called Yamaguchi "just perfect," adding that he "grew up watching her compete for our country." De la Fuente, who was eliminated early in the two-hour season finale, said "it was impossible to beat her."
No truer words could have been spoken. I knew from the very first dance, Kristi was going to be tough to be beat. I predicted from the beginning she was going to be the winner.
The new cast of the next season will be revealed this September.
