Nicole Scherzinger takes the mirrorball trophy

SHARE Nicole Scherzinger takes the mirrorball trophy

So it’s nearly 24 hours later (is that seemingly endless finale show STILL going on?), and another season of “Dancing with the Stars” comes to a close. While many still would argue this was the best season ever, I found season 10 to be tedious and boring simply because the competition was a lock pretty much from the first week. Looking back, was there any doubt Nicole and her pro partner Derek Hough would win the whole shebang? Sure, it ultimately became a of three-way race between Nicole, Erin Andrews and Evan Lysacek, but even that race seemed a shoe-in for the fiery and yes, talented, Nicole. For the rest of the pack, it became a game of “which one of us will be the next one to leave because there’s no way we’re catching up to that trio.”

Which brings us to the eternal question: Who will dance next season?

Here’s hoping the series decides what it wants to be by the time the next lineup is revealed.
