Are You Happy With the Dancing With the Stars Winner?

This season's Dancing With the Stars winner is Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson! At the age of 17, Johnson is the show's youngest competitor and she just barely beat actor Gilles Marini and his partner Cheryl Burke for the mirror ball trophy.

The competition was fierce indeed — right down to the last minute. Johnson and her partner Mark Ballas edged out Marini, "the front-runner and judges' favorite, by less than one percent of the viewers' votes."

Less than one percent! Wow. So who were you rooting for? Are you glad the mirror trophy is now in Johnson's hot little hands? Or did you want Gilles (or Melissa!) to win?

IF YOU WEREN'T ABLE TO get all you votes into the tally for the finals on DWTS, AND YOU WANT TO COMPLAIN AND DEMAND THEY FIX THIS SNAFU VAV FUTURE SEASONS; it can be done. I have direct mailing addresses of the president of ABC and the top producer of DWTS. Let's complain about the predictably inadequate voting system set up to collect C&G's votes. More than 1% votes didn't get counted is the thing. If all votes had been in the tally, C&G would have won. Contact me via message at We can make sure this fiasco is not repeated,at least not for these preventable causes.

Ughh I'm still annoyed Shawn won. Hands down I thought Gilles was the better dancer and I am tired of these Olympic Gold Medalists winning. Shawn is now the 3rd and all the seasons have been in a row....perhaps its time to ban Olympians

Is everything fixed. I thought that was only in boxing. Shawn was good, but Gilles was outstanding he was the cut above prime. If the majority saw who the true champion is, then have a rematch. Gilles and Cheryl are not afraid, so bring it.
