Amber Riley Wins DWTS & Our Hearts

comments

Amber Riley has a lot on her plate. Not only is she still a part of one of the largest shows on network TV, but she also now has the title of winner for one of the biggest reality competitions on TV. Not too shabby for the 27-year-old singer, actress, and now dancer. Last night, her and her partner Derek Hough took home the grand prize at Dancing With The Stars, beating out Jack Osbourne and Corbin Bleu (of High School Musical). This is Hough's fifth time winning the competition; though, runners-up Cheryl and Mark Ballas each have two wins under their belt, too.

Riley clinched the title with three perfect scores during the finals, with a samba/quickstep, a Charleston, and a freestyle. About her win, Amber says, "I did this competition because, I didn't know if I [could] do it and anything that scares me I wanna do, so I [want to] let women of all sizes out there know you can do whatever you put your mind to." Congrats to Amber! (Yahoo!)
