Did Donald Driver deserve to win Dancing With the Stars?

Donald Driver was the most consistently exciting dancer. That's why the judges, even while sometimes underscoring him, requested the Encore dance of Donald 3 times -- more than any other contestant!And the poster who TRIED to dismiss Donald's dancing as merely good "lifts" clearly wasn't watching. Donald did no "lifts" at all in his jaw-droppingly good 3-person Jive. And two of Donald's most impressive dances --where his great footwork earned the praise of the judges were his magnificent Viennese Waltz in Week # 7 and his graceful, spry, delightfully elegant Quickstep in just the 2nd show of the season!

LOOKING BACK AT ALL THE DANCES, THE ONE CONTESTANT WHO CONSISTANTLY DANCED AMAZINGLY WAS MARIA. WILLIAM ALWAYS WIGGLED HIS BEHIND IN EVERY DANCE, KATHERINE PRETTY MUCH DANCED ALL THE DANCES EXCEPT THE WALTZ THE SAME WAY, AND THE ONLY THING THAT DONALD DID THAT TRULY WAS AMAZING WAS HIS LIFTS. HAVING SAID THAT, I'M GLAD THAT SOMEONE BESIDES THE MAGIC 4, CHERYLE, KIM, MARK AND DEREK WON FOR A CHANGE.

Barbara, a Brazilian race-car driver, Helio Castroneves, won Dancing With the Stars one season even though a woman contestant usually danced rings around him! He did not deserve to win for just a couple of good dances, but that is not the case with Donald who danced magnificently all season long. Go back and look at Donald's Quickstep in just the 2nd week of the show! Look at his great 1st Viennese Waltz during Classical Week, Week #7 -- look at his thrilling 1st Argentine Tango in Week #5, his mesmerizing Paso Doble in Week #4, his fantastic final Cha-cha, and of course that jaw-dropping Country-Western wonder that Donald helped choreograph himself! Donald Driver's consistent excellent make him the well-deserving Champion of Dancing With the Stars! Oh, by the way, I almost forgot one of Donald's most impressive performances -- his amazing 3-person jive!

Jld, the judges know that the best man won. Even Professional Ballroom Dancers who watched the entire season were surprised that Donald didn't get more 10's and they felt that William got more of them than he deserved. The right man won. Katherine was great but it's obvious she had years of formal dance training (ballet or whatever). Of course other deserving people with a little formal dance training didn't win so I don't "fault" Katherine for that. Go back and look at Donald's gracefulness and spryness in his Quickstep in just the 2nd week of the show! Donald deserved to win-- the judges and everyone else know that "deep in [our] hearts!"

Everyone should go back and watch Donald's graceful, spry, delightful Quickstep in just the 2nd show of the season. Donald was always the man to beat. No one ever did. Donald Driver definitely deserved to win. Kudos too, to Peta for that choreography. Also watch Donald's fantastic Viennese Waltz during Classical Week/Week #7, his mesmerizing Paso in Week #4, his thrilling 1st Argentine Tango in Week #5, his great finals Cha-Cha, and of course that Country-Western wonder of a freestyle that Donald helped choreograph himself! Donald took his fate in his own hands, brought his considerable skills to bear on winning-- and did just that! Impressive. The best overall dancer won. Congratulations, Donald!

Catherine was good as was william, but Donald worked hard from a football player to a dance star in such little time. He looked good dancing just like Maxim.

Somebody needs to tell Brooke Burke to stop saying, "you guys!"
She says it too often and she sounds unpolished. She is too classy to speak that way!

Once again this show proves to be a popularity contest. Can someone explain how this can be considered a dance contest? especially when the best dancer did not win. Even donald knows there where better dancers than him. Shame on the judges for allowing this tragedy to happen. mario lopez and joey lawrence where better than emmit smith and donald should not have been in the top three. The judges know this to be true in there hearts; that is if they are really not capable of judging dance. As a result of this years big dissapointment and unfairness to the others who can really dance I and all those I know will not watch this now wretched show. I appologize to all the dancers who deserved to be in the top three all these seasons on behalf of the american population who know the truth. God bless.

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
