After a hard-fought season filled with waltzes and quicksteps, Rashad Jennings and his pro partner, Emma Slater, walked away holding the Dancing With the Stars Mirrorball trophy at the end of Tuesday's season 24 finale.
National Football League player Rashad Jennings and pro Emma Slater were crowned "Dancing with the Stars" champions on Tuesday.
Though it looked like the singer was going to win the show after getting a whole lot of praise and high scores from the judges this series, Kordei was shockingly eliminated in third place. "It was quite a shocker for me, as well, but I've gained so much from this experience, I'm so happy, and I can't even begin to express the gratitude that I carry, and the blessing, especially because I have a lifelong friend now [in her dancing partner Val Chmerkovskiy] that I've learned so much from".
Rashad Jennings lamented during Monday night's episode of "Dancing with the Stars" that he'd never won the big game. Jennings, a Forest native and LU graduate, joined the show in March. Tonight, only one of them gets crowned the victor.

Rows of people were seated before a large stage Wednesday morning as music blared from nearby speakers. Terry Branstad has resigned as Iowa governor and has been sworn in as US ambassador to China.
"Take Me Out To The Ballgame" by District 78 ft. How appropriate for an ex-baseball player. Ross, meanwhile, was a fan favorite all season, but lower scores than his peers always made winning it all an unlikely proposition for the Chicago hero. Their Freestyle dance will be "What the World Needs Now Is Love" by Andre Day.
Meanwhile, the part one of the finale aired on May 22 has witnessed some superb dance performances from the contestants. It was an incredibly moving moment for both of them. They got a ideal score. "Win or lose tonite I'm celebrating like I won the lottery", Jennings tweeted Tuesday afternoon. For the third time in a row this round, the couple earns a flawless 40/40.
However, despite pushing through an ankle injury and scoring the maximum 40 points for their Argentine Tango and Foxtrot fusion dance in the final, it was revealed they had come third following the public vote.
