Steeler Nation can party all night long now that they know that Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver Hines Ward and his partner Kym Johnson are the winners of Season 12 on Dancing With the Stars on ABC. Dancing in a gold and black outfit, his partner in solid gold, Ward was graceful. After an emotional experience on the hit dance show, Ward hoisted the famed mirror ball trophy over his head smiling proudly as fans cheered.
Steelers fans have been petitioning week after week for 10 total weeks for friends, family and other fans to vote for the popular player. Their persistence paid off, boosting Ward and Johnson who were one point from a perfect score overall (combined dance scores from last night and tonight) into the top spot. A breakaway shot on the program showed Steelers fans with Terrible Towels and “I love Hines Ward” signs in Pittsburgh gathered in gleeful celebration.
Las Vegas odds-makers were betting on Ward and Johnson to win despite her terrible accident during a rehearsal. The duo were given 2 to 3 odds over fellow contestants Kirstie Alley, Chelsea Kane and their dance partners.
Ward, a Super Bowl champion, can now add a new trophy to his personal case. The mirror ball would look great next to his Super Bowl MVP award.
