Donald Driver lifts the mirror ball trophy.
NEW YORK — Green Bay Packers football star Donald Driver won the 14th season of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ on Tuesday, Cha-cha-cha-ing to victory on the strength of perfect scores from the show’s judges and voting support from fervid fans.
An ecstatic Driver leapt for joy, then rolled around on the dance floor seemingly unable to contain himself.
Dancing with professional partner Peta Murgatroyd, Driver was cited by the judges for his intensity and determination in the competition, as well as his willingness to listen and learn from them during the course of the TV ballroom dance competition.
Driver, 37, triumphed over finalists Telenovela star William Levy who placed third and runner-up, classical music singer Katherine Jenkins, a season-long standout.
“Amazing, this is awesome!” Driver exclaimed before accepting the coveted mirror ball trophy, which he raised aloft, whooping and screaming. — AFP
