Dancing With the Stars Winner: Donald Driver Takes the Trophy!May 23, 2012 @ 10:55 am
Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd took home the Mirrorball Trophy last night on the season 14 finale of Dancing With the Stars! The Green Bay Packers football star (and self-proclaimed DWTS fan since its inaugural season!) dropped to the floor and rolled around from excitement when his name was called. “I was on fire, and I had to roll around and get the fire out,” he told Good Morning America this morning. The pair took the stage at the beginning of the show for a repeat performance of their country music freestyle to Cowboy Troy’s “I Play Chicken With the Train” and wowed the audience again with their unique choreography and complicated lifts. And it was this dance—watch it above—that put this couple in the lead. ”We made a really good choice with what we wanted to portray with the freestyle, and we went all out with the country, and did something different, and it suited Donald to a tee,” Murgatroyd said. (Donald also won in our InStyle.com poll, with almost 40% of the vote.) Now we can’t wait for the “All-Star” season of the show which will return in the fall! Tell us: Were you happy with Donald Driver’s win?
