‘Dancing With The Stars’ Crowns ‘Pussycat’

Nicole ScherzingerFrontrunner Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls was selected winner on the season finale of Dancing With The Stars last night.  Scherzinger and her partner, season 7 champion Derek Hough, beat out their competitors by seven points to claim the top prize. Despite her background as a dancer, the Pussycat Doll said she “was genuinely surprised,” by the win. “I had the most amazing people I was up against. It was so awesome; it’s still surreal.”

Coming in second place was figure skater and fan-favorite Evan Lysacek, and newscaster Erin Andrews came in third. Lysacek remained optimistic about the experience. “The most surprising thing to me is the bond that we all shared as a cast …we all left with a new family and we walked out of that building hand in hand.” We wish Nicole, Evan and Erin a fond farewell, and hope they enjoy their fifteen minutes or sweet, sweet recognition before they fade into obscurity.
