Shawn Johnson Leans on Fierce Five for Dancing With The Stars Finale [VIDEO]
Dancing with the Stars finalist Shawn Johnson called in a few friends last night in hopes of securing a victory over rivals Melissa Rycroft and Kelly Monaco. The result was a high-flying dance routine full of acrobatics the likes of which had never been seen before on this ballroom floor.
London Summer Olympics gold medal winning women’s gymnastics Team U.S.A., collectively now known as the ‘Fierce Five’, helped elevate Shawn and dance partner Derek Hough’s final night of performances to a whole new level, literally.
Gabby Douglas, Jordyn Wieber, Kyla Ross, McKayla Maroney, and Ali Raisman became the aerial accompaniment to a super sized freestyle already chock full of stunts.
The flip-infested freestyle earned Team Shawn Johnson a perfect 30 points. Shawn’s quickstep routine earned she and Hough 27 points, putting them in third place overall behind Melissa and Kelly.
