Glee’s Amber Riley Wins ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ Watch Her Final Performances

By: Robert Kessler / November 27, 2013

As it turns out, spending five seasons on Glee taught Amber Riley something about dancing after all. Riley and her partner Derek Hough beat out Jack Osbourne and Corbin Bleu to win the 17th season of Dancing With the Stars Tuesday night.

Riley and Hough were awarded perfect scores for each of their final three performances: a Charleston, a samba and a freestyle, western-themed routine. You can watch them here:

Following her win, Riley said: “I did this competition because, I didn’t know if I [could] do it and anything that scares me I want to do, so I [want to] let women of all sizes out there know you can do whatever you put your mind to. It doesn’t matter what size you are, what color you are, you can do whatever, whatever, whatever, whatever you put your mind to!”
