On Dancing With the Stars 2012 All Stars Monday night, Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough were the obvious winners of the evening with a Quickstep routine that broke all the rules. Literally, they broke the rules all over the place and no one on Earth cared as they danced one of the most fabulous routines in the history of Dancing With the Stars. Well, at least it was according to the judges.
Shawn Johnson let loose with everything she had, throwing all the rules out the window as she did backflips and wild gymnastics moves, accompanied by pro partner Derek Hough. At the end of the performance, the two jumped off the stairs into nothingness in one of the coolest endings to any Dancing With the Stars routine ever. The judges were crazed over it, piling on praise so lavish, you’d think Shawn Johnson just won the Olympics again.
The Dancing With the Stars All Stars 2012 cast is going to have to do some serious work if they hope to top that dance any time soon. Even I don’t personally have high hopes of Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough winning the mirror ball trophy this season on DWTS 2012 All Stars, I think no one is going to forget this dance for a long time to come.
Even the judges just couldn’t care enough about the rules violations to mark down the pair too much. Even though Len admitted he just had to be honest and take a point off for all the stunts, Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough still ended up with a score of 26.5. Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy, and Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovoloni may have scored higher with 27 each, but I still think Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough walked away with the win for best dance of the night.
