According to backstage buzz at Dancing With the Star, newly crowned fourth-time champion pro Derek Hough may be leaving the show again — for good this time. Maybe Derek is just bored at winning all the time now that he has yet another Mirrorball Trophy under his belt.
There is no question that Derek Hough and Kellie Picker were the belles of the Dancing With the Stars 2013 ball this season. They were frontrunner favorites from the moment they first hit the dance floor.
While it was kind of amazing at first to see the former American Idol finalist and the handsome dance pro sweep away the competition every week, it actually started to get a bit predictably boring there toward the end.
Who won Dancing With the Stars last night seemed almost a foregone conclusion to anyone who has been watching Season 16 religiously. Let’s face it, Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough have been dominating Dancing With the Stars 2013 all season long. While there was always the chance for a last minute shakeup result, it would have been seriously shocking had they not taken home the Mirror Ball trophy.
We don’t really want to call Season 16 boring per se… but anyone who didn’t see the writing on the wall practically from the first week was probably drunk. Thankfully, despite the ultimate predictability of who won Dancing With the Stars from the moment Kellie hit the dance floor, a season of truly delightful performances still made it worth watching — mostly.
