    Dancing with the Stars finale was fabulous!!

    I’ve been watching for years. Sometimes I think it’s not going to make it, but it really just keeps getting better and better. I think the professional dancers are wonderful. I love all their different personalities, even the controversial ones. I love the judges and the whole show.
