Helio Castroneves upset Spice Girl Melanie Brown to capture the fifth “Dancing With the Stars” trophy last night.
“It will look so good between my two Indy 500 trophies!” the race car driver gushed as he took the prize. “This is going to go right there, in a special place. I can’t believe it!”
Helio and partner Julianne Hough earned a perfect score of 30 for their final dance, a quickstep, and sped to the winner's circle even though Mel. B and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were one point ahead.
“I am so proud that we got this far,” Mel told “Extra” after the show.
Marie Osmond, a favorite to win the competition until Monday night’s ill-conceived doll-themed freestyle, was the first to be eliminated during the results show. Still, Marie kept her cheerful attitude.
Pointing to her arms, she shrugged, “No more bruises!” as partner Jonathan Roberts looked on.
Her family, however, wasn’t so positive.
“Mom, you got robbed!” shouted one of her children after Marie left the stage.
Last night’s show saw the welcome return of the jaw-dropping, high-energy dances that audiences have grown to love throughout season five. Sabrina Bryan and Mark Ballas made their return to the dance floor, though Mark dislocated his shoulder just hours before showtime.
“I kind of wish I was at the hospital with him right now!” Sabrina told “Extra” backstage. Mark, 21, was forced to use only one arm throughout his Cha-Cha and later headed to the hospital.
