DWTS Winner: Twitter Fans Split

[ 0 ] May 26, 2022 | Tina Chubb

Singer-songwriter Nicole Scherzinger – best known for being the lead singer of the all-girl group Pussycat Dolls – spent most of the tenth season of “Dancing with the Stars,” at the top of the judges’ leaderboard. And in last night’s finale, she was crowned the “DWTS” winner.

But although Scherzinger was definitely the technically superior dancer in the competition, Las Vegas oddmakers had actually put down figure skater Evan Lysacek as the likely season 10 winner, according to an article by Debra Yeo over at thestar.com.

Nicole’s professional partner Derek Hough did make quite an interesting point, that Olympians have had a tendency to win the seasons that they have competed in, including gymnast Shawn Johnson, figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi and speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno.

But unfortunately for Lysacek, 31-year old Nicole broke that lucky Olympian winning streak. And according to the Associated Press, the competition was expected to be a bit of a close one, with the votes appearing evenly split among the show’s fans on Twitter.

By the time that they’d performed their second routine of Tuesday night’s finale, Nicole and Derek were in the lead with 115 points overall, while Evan and Anna were falling slightly behind with 108 points. Nicole however scored a perfect 30 for her final dance, which was the Jive.

Who did you think was going to win last night? Did you predict correctly?
