Dancing with the Stars Season 23 Finale – And the Winner Is…

This is going to be super quick as it is the day before Thanksgiving and I am preparing a feast for 35+ people tomorrow. I would like to take a moment and beg DWTS producers to not have the winter finale happen the same week as a major holiday. That would be so nice, thanks.

Really this is not going to be a recap so much as a big congratulations to Laurie Hernandez and Val Chmerkovskiy for winning the Mirror Ball Trophy and also to say I called it! Watching the 16-year-old grow over the last 11 weeks has been so wonderful to watch.

While I’m very happy for the gymnast, I’m a little disappointed because I was rooting heavily for James Hinchliffe to win. His moves and his charm had me rooting for him (and swooning just a little).

This season has been one of the more fun competitions I’ve seen in some time and I think sets the bar pretty darn high for season 24, which will premiere sometime in March.
