Great success for Johnson, 24, who was awarded first Mirrorball trophy after turning pro on just 2 seasons.
However, Rippon collected a perfect score and a standing ovation for the first dance, he got mixed reviews for his performance on Pitbull and DJ Kass’ remix “Scooby Doo Pa Pa.”
He received 28 out of 30 for his freestyle on Pitbull’s song and he said: “This freestyle is different, corky, fun and totally embodies me as a person and I want to that with America.”
Though, he was not able to score full points for his freestyle, Tony Harding dance to “I will survive” and Norman “Walk on Water,” scored 30/30. But his overall performance won the mirrorball trophy at last.
