However, the ultimate winner was…….. Russell! [singlepic id=181 w=120 h=180 float=right]He deserved it for sure. What a great dancer and entertainer. It was a hard choice for me… I wanted Russell AND Jakob to win this thing, but alas, there could only be one winner. Russell, coming from Krump, did exceptional, like he has been doing all the other styles from the get go. He suffered two set-backs on the show, twice when who he was partnered up with had an injury, and he had to dance with stand-ins, but that didn’t even slow him down. Nigel put it best last night when he said “Jakob is a polished diamond, and Russell is a diamond in the rough” – Exactly right on. Both were so very deserving of this. Last nights results made me so proud.
So congrats Russell and all the dancers. You entertained us all so much, and we hope to see you soon!
