Shawn Johnson Wins Dancing with the Stars 2009
Olympic Gymnast Shawn Johnson was crowned winner of Dancing with the Stars season 8 after performing a very confident Cha Cha with partner Mark Ballas.
After seeing Shawn’s very first dance at the beginning of the season I was skeptical that she would have the ability to win. However, Shawn worked as hard in dance training as she has all her gymnastics years and it pays off. She overcame her hesitations on body movement and got into to every character she had to play. She took her gymnastics background and made it work for her in a completely new way.
Congratulations Shawn! We can’t wait to see where you take your talents next.
