‘Dancing with the Stars’ crowns new champs

LOS ANGELES – Dancing with the Stars revealed its Season 20 winning couple Tuesday, with the judges and viewer votes choosing between three finalist couples.

The finals of the ABC dancing competition came down to three celebrity-professional couples: Noah Galloway-Sharna Burgess, Riker Lynch-Allison Holker and Rumer Willis-Valentin Chmerkovskiy.

Before Dancing got around to crowning Season 20’s wining couple, however, there was nearly two hours of performance festivities along with a pivotal final competitive dance, the 24-Hour Fusion Challenge.

• The finale was too big for the set, as Dancing opened up outside the studio in a parking-lot-turned-Hollywood-set. Stars and pros danced short bits as the judges clinked champagne glasses from a spot above the performers

• Inside, Riker and Allison, dressed all in white down to the top hats, took to the ballroom floor with a performance reminiscent of old Hollywood, before looking more contemporary for a dance outside after the commercial break.

The winners; Rumer and Val. It’s his first win as a pro dancer. There are plenty of shots of Rumer’s very happy family and friends.
