It was an action packed night with all the 2015 cast returning, a special Peter Allen tribute from Todd McKenney, and two amazing numbers from Simply Red accompanied by the Dancing with the Stars band.
She hasn’t put a foot wrong all season and the Grand Final was no different, Emma Freedman impressed the judges with her new and improved jive in the judges choice, before a beautiful freestyle to ‘Singing In The Rain.’ Thanking her partner Aric, and crediting their partnership for their success Emma was emotionally ecstatic over the win.
Kicking off the show John Paul Young led the cast in a spectacular opening number of his classic ‘Love Is In The Air’ which saw the entire Dancing with the Stars cast return to the dancefloor.
It was then straight into business as the top three finalists tackled the judges pick, a number they wish to see the star dance again in a last bid to score points. After the scores were tallied it was Ash Pollard who was named second -runner up, she thanked the audience with a empowering dance to Beyonce’s ‘Run The World.’
Emma Freedman and Matthew Mitcham then performed their freestyle numbers, with both scoring perfect 10’s from the judges, but after an almost perfect track record all season it was Emma Freedman who triumphed with her dance partner Aric and was named the winner.
