And the winner is........

Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke. YIPEE!!!

I, like many of your viewers out there, was sucked into the hysteria of "Dancing with the Stars". I religiously watched the show both Tuesday and Wednesday...cheering successes and mourning losses.

When Vivica Fox was voted out....I was saddened.
When Jerry Springer finally limped off the show....I had mixed feelings. It was his time to go but his humorous approach would be missed.
When Sarah Evans opted out I was heart-broken. She had come so far.

Then came the semi-finals....Joey, Emmitt and Mario.
I didn't know which way to cheer. I loved Emmitt's charism, Mario's passion and Joey's innocence. It was difficult seeing Joey leave...but he left with his head held high. He had done well and had no regrets.

Down to the last two. Who would win???
I must admit I leaned towards Emmitt. Mario was passionate and commited...but a bad boy...breaking rules. Emmitt was noble...gracious....consistant.

The announcement was made...Emmitt won...and his first statement was to thank Cheryl and Mario. How gracious and humble can a man be. Sigh
And let us not forget that Cheryl was part of the winning team last season as well

It will be interesting to see season 4.
Will Cheryl be back and if so...will they pair her with someone with two left feet.

I guess we will all have to wait until March to find out.

I so agree with you J, this show was totally addictive for me and I am not a TV watcher for the most part (except Coronation St. from UK, watched this one for over 20 YEARS!!!). I really thought Mario should win, thought he was the better dancer but I agree, Emmitt is a class act and they made a very nice couple indeed!
