Who won Dancing with the Stars in 2012?
In 2012 there were two seasons of the US celebrity dancing show, Dancing with the Stars.
The first series in 2012 (season 14) which aired in the spring was won by former Green Bay Packers, American Football player, Donald Driver. The wide receiver was partnered by professional dancer, Peta Murgatroyed.
Runners up in season 14 were Welsh opera singer Kathrine Jenkins with dance partner Mark Ballas.
Then later that year in the fall a special series entitled ‘Dancing with the Stars: All Stars’ took place. Here some of the best contestants from previous seasons, including earlier winners came back to compete again.
This All-Star contest was eventually won by former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Melissa Rycroft, partnered by Tony Dovolani.
Rycroft who had originally finished third on season 9 this time managed to out perform two previous winners: Kelly Monaco and Shawn Johnson in the final.
