The “Dancing With the Stars” finale starts with a look back at the “journey” of David Ross and Lindsay Arnold throughout the competition. He’s a nice guy who got better at dancing, but still isn’t the best dancer.

Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater’s video package focuses a lot on his contemporary routine, which was pretty great in retrospect. In her interview with Erin Andrews, Emma cops to being an easy crier.

Several of the female pros and troupe members, along with Heather Morris, dance barefoot on a stage that has a rain curtain on all four sides. Is this to prove to us that we voted Heather off too early or that she really was a ringer all along?

Back from commercial, Hailee Steinfeld “sings” and shows off her body. Then Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy’s video package reminds us that she may be the best technical dancer left in the competition.

Time to announce third place, which goes to … Normani and Val. What?!!? That’s some grade-A BS right there. This better not mean David’s sneaking into the winner’s spot. The judges are visibly shocked at this outcome. Tom says he’s stunned.

Back up on the stage, Emma has turned her face into Rashad’s chest and may be crying. Is it because she thinks Normani’s elimination means they might win or because she thinks it means they’ll lose? I feel ya, Emma. Never count out America’s need to make white men who aren’t as good as their competitor feel better about themselves.

To my great relief, Rashad and Emma are announced as champions. This happens inside the ballroom, and then they all go over to a mirror-square plated golf cart, which Erin drives outside so the crowd there can see the winners too. I want that golf cart, minus the word “Finale” on the front, for my very own.

Well, that was a topsy-turvy season with shocking results. I can live with Rashad and Emma as winners, but, man, I hope next season goes more smoothly.
