Wow! I am truly shocked right now!
Once we knew the final 3, I thought even before the Fab/Fierce Five showed up for freestyle that Shawn had it in the bag between her fanbase and Derek's. Never ever thought Melissa would make the finals, let alone win it all. I was fine with Shawn or Melissa winning after Apolo was voted off; I loved them both. I split my votes for the first time in a finale and voted for both of them, but threw a few more M&T's way for Tony's sake.
So happy for them! Tony, long-suffering whipping boy that he has been for this show, finally got one.
I do hope Derek comes back. If they would just give him more of a variety of partners, I would mostly have little problem with him. He's an excellent choreographer, and from what I saw in person years ago when they had the DWTS tours, an amazing dancer. I'll miss him if he's really gone for good.
Mark, on the other hand... Dance Center had him pegged right.
