Dancing with the stars accident last night

Just before the season premiere of “Dancing with the Stars,” legendary model Christie Brinkley has been forced to pull out of the show.

Brinkley, 65, suffered a broken arm during a dance rehearsal and must undergo surgery. In an official statement obtained by “Extra,” ABC said, “While rehearsing for the premiere of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ Christie Brinkley suffered injuries which required surgery to her wrist and arm. She is unable to continue her planned participation on the show.”

“Good Morning America” obtained exclusive footage of Christie being injured. The accident happened when Christie tripped and broke her fall with her wrist. She is seen instantly grabbing for her wrist.

Brinkley’s daughter Sailor, 21, is coming to the rescue by taking her place. The statement continued, “Keeping it all in the family, her daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook, a Sports Illustrated model, has chosen to quickly step in with hours to learn the entire routine and will compete in her mother’s place for the remainder of the season. We wish Christie a full and speedy recovery and look forward to seeing her in the audience, whenever possible, proudly supporting Sailor.”

Sailor said in a statement, “I’m doing this mostly for my mom. I just want to make her happy and make her proud,” she said. “She loved doing this. She loves dancing and she loves performing, and getting hurt was her worst nightmare.”

On Monday, Sailor was spotted on the set of the show wearing the same outfit that Christie would have worn on the premiere. The blue ensemble did not need to be altered to fit Sailor.


Last week, “Extra” caught up with Sailor at New York Fashion Week’s Front Row show, where she praised her mom, saying, “I hope when I’m your age, I’m just as vivacious and ready to try new things and ready to get out there and ready to take chances.”


Which pro dancer was planning to dance with Christie is being kept under wraps. She recently teased to “Extra” before her injury, “He’s very impatient.”

We’ll have to wait and see on tonight’s premiere.

Last month, the Season 28 cast of “Dancing with the Stars” was announced on “Good Morning America.”

Some of the familiar names to join the ABC favorite include “The Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown, actor James Van Der Beek, ex-White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, “Queer Eye” star Karamo Brown, “The Office” actress Kate Flannery, “All That” star Kel Mitchell, “American Idol” alum Lauren Alaina, Motown legend Mary Wilson, singer Ally Brooke, football star Ray Lewis, and basketball player Lamar Odom.

The pro dancers returning are Alan Bersten, Brandon Armstrong, Cheryl Burke, Daniella Karagach, Emma Slater, Gleb Savchenko, Jenna Johnson, Keo Motsepe, Lindsay Arnold, Pasha Pashkov, Peta Murgatroyd, Sasha Farber, Val Chmerkovskiy and Witney Carson.

Noticeably missing are reigning champion Sharna Burgess and Nikki Bella’s boyfriend Artem Chigvintsev.

After the cast was announced, Sharna wrote on Instagram, “As I’m sure you’ve heard, I will not be returning to @dancingabc this season. I am unbelievably sad to not be back!!! However, what i can whole heartedly tell you is that It’s all good, ALL love and in this moment I can’t help but be grateful for the time and the journey that I’ve had, the people I’ve met, the incredible talent I’ve shared the stage with and the memories I’ve made. To say the least.. it’s been epic. ♥️ and to have finally won still feels as exciting and special as it did the moment @tombergeron said our names.”

Artem wrote on Instagram, “I just want to say how sad it makes me feel not to be part of Season 28 of DWTS. It’s been 10 years since I have joined this absolutely, one of a kind, incredible show! It has given me recognition as a dancer, choreographer and a teacher. I have had so many beautiful memories with all of my celebrity partners! They all have shaped me into the person that I am today.”

“Special thank you goes to all the people behind the camera who work extremely hard to not only impress our fans but to make our pro dancer’s visions come to life,” he continued. “What I will miss the most is working along side my coworkers, the heroes of the show. I want to wish them and their new celebrity partners the best of luck this season! I want you all to make it better than it ever was before! Because our DWTS Fans, who mean SO much to me, want DWTS to continue going strong for many, many years to come. To all the fans, I want to thank you SO much for supporting me all these years! I simply couldn’t have done it without you! Without your love! Without your connection! And most importantly without your support! You all have no idea how much I will miss you all this season! I’m already missing you all so much! Even though this is so hard on me, I will be DWTS #1 fan, cheering you all on every Monday night! Good luck to everyone on Seasons 28! With lots of Love.”

Carrie Ann Inaba is flourishing. The Dancing with the Stars judge just snagged a new gig on CBS’s hit daytime talk show The Talk, and she’s slated to return to the long-running dance competition show when it premieres for Season 28 in Fall 2019. Since she first stepped into the spotlight on DWTS back in 2005 –Inaba has always had a sunny and charming disposition, sharing feedback and praise with the contestants. Prevention Magazine has called her judging style, “warm, cheerful, and empathetic.”

While many celebrities have been careful and guarded about their personal lives, the former backup dancer for Madonna has always been an open book about her love life and romances.

And in honor of #nationalhairday I leave you with this…Thank you @stevegberg @marylinmakeup @rhondaspiesstylist @mikeystyles Thanks for a your hard work!

A post shared by Carrie Ann Inaba (@carrieanninaba) on Oct 2, 2018 at 12:01am PDT

Carrie Ann Inaba is single and loving it

Carrie Ann Inaba is not married, but she has been engaged before. In 2017, she was engaged to actor Robb Derringer. She told People of their first magical and romantic date,

As a young girl, I had always dreamed about going on a date like the first date I shared with Robb. Somehow, he instinctively knew what that was and went to great lengths to surprise me with the most romantic night ever. I could see then how pure of heart he was and how generous and caring his soul was. Everything about the evening felt so ‘right’. There was an ease and an authentic familiarity. We talked about everything under the stars … even marriage. There was a strong sense of destiny that night, and I think I knew then, deep in my heart, that he and I were going to be together forever.

The pair were engaged just nine months after that fateful first date, but unfortunately called it off sometime later, In Sept. 2017, Inaba wrote on Instagram “Just when I think I’ve learned the way to live, life changes.” Though her relationship with Derringer didn’t work out — Inaba has always remained open to love.

Another past engagement

The end of Inaba and Derringer’s relationship was not the DWTS judge’s first broken engagement. In 2011 she was engaged to Jesse Sloan, an accountant who proposed to her on Live! With Regis and Kelly. Though the pair began planning a seaside wedding, things just didn’t work out. In September 2012, it was reported that Inaba and Sloan “decided early in the summer to break off their engagement and have remained friends.”

Carrie Ann Inaba the cougar

The Talk co-host has jokingly called herself a cougar. From 2006 to 2008 she dated dancer, Artem Chigvintsev, who is 14 years her junior. The former couple met on the set of So You Think You Can Dance. Though their relationship eventually fizzled, Inaba told People how much she still adores the Russian native. She said, “ a fine gentleman. I have never gone out with somebody that grounded, always ready to talk it out. I’m very happy for him and the success he’s having.”

For Inaba remaining open to love has been the key to happiness.

  • Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba fell off her chair during 2019 Disney Night on Monday.
  • The longtime ABC dance judge confirmed she was okay, and later called herself the “Queen of the Fall” on Instagram.

Carrie Ann Inaba wants her Instagram followers to know she is a-okay after taking a tumble on Monday’s Dancing With the Stars.

The longtime judge of the ABC ballroom dance program accidentally fell just as she was giving feedback to The Office star Kate Flannery and pro dancer Pasha Pashkov. Carrie Ann stood up to look at the prop the duo used during their routine, but when she went to sit back down, she missed her seat and landed on the ground.

Immediately after, Kate, Pasha, and the show’s staff rushed to Carrie Ann’s aid, and host Tom Bergeron asked if she was alright. Carrie Ann confirmed that she wasn’t injured and went on to have a good laugh about it.

On her Instagram Stories, Carrie Ann spoke out about her flub and hilariously dubbed herself the “Queen of the Fall.”

Instagram Instagram

“I fell down in the middle of the show because I had this chair with these wheels and it’s all on my dress,” she said while giggling to herself.

In a different slide, she embedded the Kenny Loggins song “I’m Alright” and thanked Kate and Pasha for having her back. On top of that, she also posted a photo from her fall on her feed.

“Ummm… so THAT happened. 🤦🏻‍♀️ #fall I don’t think anyone saw it so let’s just keep it between you and me. 💁🏻‍♀️😘🤫,” she wrote.

Kate replied to Carrie Ann’s post, “❤️💪Will always have my girls back!” The judge’s fans also posted encouraging words, like they are “glad she’s okay” and “can laugh it off.”

Carrie Ann’s fall occurred during the competition’s annual Disney night. Luckily for the contestants, no eliminations were made on the Disney-themed episode. Score-wise though, Sean Spicer and Karamo Brown landed in the bottom two, with the Former White House Press Secretary scoring 19/30 and the Queer Eye star earning 21/30.

DWTS Disney Night 2019 Recap: Who Went Home?

Disney magic returned to the ballroom as Dancing with the Stars 2019 celebrated Disney Night! The entire DWTS cast, including Hannah Brown, Ally Brooke, Sean Spicer, Kel Mitchell, and Karamo, and their pro dance partners, danced to music from classic Disney films including Cinderella, The Lion King, Mary Poppins, and The Little Mermaid. Judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba were once again on-hand, but would they be more like fairy godmothers or channeling famous Disney villains? Keep scrolling for the full recap and Dancing with the Stars Disney Night scores and to find out who went home on Dancing with the Stars’ Disney Night 2019!

Sailor Brinkley-Cook & Val
Massive Disney fan Sailor Brinkley-Cook got to be a real Disney princess as she and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy prepared for their Viennese Waltz to “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” from Disney’s classic, Cinderella. To prepare her for all of the spinning in the routine, Val also made sure to take Sailor for a spin on Disneyland’s famous Mad Tea Party ride. And the preparation must’ve paid off, because, for the judges, their performance was a dream come true.

Carrie Ann – 8; Len – 8; Bruno – 8; TOTAL: 24

Karamo & Jenna
After finally getting a “7” from Len last week and spending some time at Disneyland with his sons, Karamo was feeling like a king. This week, he and his partner Jenna Johnson let the whole ballroom know that they just couldn’t wait to rule again with a Samba to “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” from Disney’s The Lion King. Unfortunately, the judges weren’t quite so sure that Karamo and Jenna were ready to rule just yet; he needs to work some more on his footwork first.

Kate Flannery & Pasha
After struggling to get into character last week for their Argentine Tango, Kate and her partner Pasha Pashkov found their low scores a little hard to take. This week, they sweetened things up with a Jazz routine to “A Spoonful of Sugar” from Disney’s Mary Poppins, but would the medicine go down well with the judges? With “8s” across the board, it’s safe to say their performance was more than sweet enough.

Carrie Ann – 8; Len – 8; Bruno – 8; TOTAL: 24

Sean Spicer & Lindsay
Sean and his partner Lindsay Arnold were able to bring in their first “6” of the season last week, and they were looking for even more this week with their Quickstep to “You’ve Got a Friend In Me” from Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story. The judges were certainly feeling friendly, with Sean scoring his first “6s” from Len and Bruno, and his first “7” of the season from Carrie Ann.

Ally Brooke & Sasha
Ally and her partner Sasha Farber got to tell a tale as old as time this week with their Contemporary routine set to “Beauty and the Beast” from the classic Disney film of the same name. There was nothing beastly about their performance, and it’s safe to say that Ally was the Belle of the ballroom. All three judges awarded their first “9s” of the season, sending Ally and the princely Sasha straight to the top of the leaderboard.

Carrie Ann – 9; Len – 9; Bruno – 9; TOTAL: 27

Lauren Alaina & Gleb
Country star Lauren Alaina won her first talent show singing “Part of Your World” from Disney’s The Little Mermaid, so it was especially meaningful that she and her partner Gleb Savchenko danced a Samba to “Under the Sea.” There was nothing hotter under the water, with the judges spotting a few fishy moves, but acknowledging they did well with a very difficult dance.

Carrie Ann – 8; Len – 7; Bruno – 8; TOTAL: 23

Kel Mitchell & Witney
Kel and his partner Witney Carson were feeling celebratory after getting their highest scores of the season last week. This week, they danced a Jazz routine to “We’re All in This Together” from Disney’s High School Musical, to show off that feel-good spirit. Well, the judges were certainly feeling good about their routine, and the scores got even higher!

Carrie Ann – 9; Len – 8; Bruno – 9; TOTAL: 26

Hannah Brown & Alan
Hannah and her partner Alan Bersten were looking to show everyone a whole new world with their Foxtrot to the beloved song from Disney’s Aladdin this week. The dance was as beautiful and graceful as a moonlit magic carpet ride, but Len was hoping for some more in-hold content.

James Van Der Beek & Emma

The celebrities and the entire dance troupe of “Dancing with the Stars” took over the Disneyland Resort for a rollicking opening number to kick off the annual Disney Night event.

It was a great way to kick off the evening, filled with joyous performances and a real sense of fun from the remaining competitors before the sweating and fretting began again.


And once it did begin, we got some incredible performances throughout the night. The judges handed out their first 9s of the season, and so did we … two of them in fact. And that’s not just because Disney makes you feel good.

Literally everyone stepped up their performances this week, including the guy who’s been circling the drain for weeks now. Sean Spicer gave his best performance yet, and while it still wasn’t good, per se, it was a huge improvement for him and something to build from, should his journey continue.

Beyond him, though, we got the season’s best performances yet, as well as expansions into jazz and contemporary styles which allowed the celebrities to express themselves more naturally that some of the more structured Latin styles.

Oh, and Carrie Ann totally fell out of her chair, and we’re not completely convinced that it wasn’t Tom’s fault. We don’t know how he did it, but the timing was too suspicious.

Tom moved a vibrating broom prop from in front of the dais where she was sitting and down she went, and it looked like a pretty hard fall! Was this a witch joke gone wrong? Actually, it was Carrie-Ann trying to get up to see what Tom was doing and when she went to sit back down, her chair had rolled further back than she expected. Cue epic pratfall!

Who do I think I am? you ask. Well, I spent nearly a decade of my life sweating and bleeding to the music as a dancer. From a young boy learning a shuffle-ball-change to performing with the St. Louis Ballet Company, I experienced the ups and downs of one of the most difficult physically demanding sports on the planet. During this time, I was also a member of the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra, as well as a gymnast, writer and cartoonist. I had a lot more energy in my younger years. And I’ve spent the last seventeen years analyzing and critiquing reality competition shows for various media publications. I’ve got this.

Fair warning, since I’m safe at home, I’m probably going to be a little harsher than my colleagues Carrie-Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli. But I might be nicer, too. Maybe.

Sailor Brinkley-Cook & Val Chmerkovskiy

(Viennese Waltz) While she could have been a bit grander at times to match Val’s extensions, there’s no doubt that this was Sailor’s most accomplished dance yet. She captured the magical wonder of the music and the character of Cinderella beautifully, and her movement across the dance floor was beautiful to watch. The Viennese Waltz can be kind to stars on this show, but it still takes work and precision to make it look so effortless and flowing and Sailor definitely put in the work.

Judges Scores: 8, 8, 8

My Score: 8

Karamo Brown & Jenna Johson

(Samba) Karamo continues to improve, but he was plagued with dead fish for hands on this one as he didn’t follow through his extensions completely. There was a little hip action at the top, which was nice to see, and an overall sense of greater confidence than we’ve seen in his previous dances. He still needs to work on technique, but we can see improvement We loved the inclusion of the African elements in the piece, as it was definitely his most confident, but it shows he can get where he needs to be with time and effort.

Judges Scores: 7, 7, 7

My Score: 5

Kate Flannery & Pasha Pashkov

(Jazz) Oddly enough, Kate was too bouncy when she needed to settle down at the top of the number, but quickly found her groove when they shifted into the quickstep portion. As a jazz routine, Pasha sprinkled all kinds of different styles and Kate tacked each with aplomb, though you could see her working at times, which made her performance a little stiff and disconnected. But she powered through and proved why she remains one of the front-runners right now. And how cool she was able to descend like Mary Poppins?!

Judges Scores: 8, 8, 8

My Score: 7

Sean Spicer & Lindsay Arnold

(Quickstep) Well, it wasn’t very quick but the slower pace allowed Sean to actually show some technique and that he did get down some of the basics of how this dance worked. His overall stiffness worked better here, but also he was looser than we’ve ever seen him. Could this dance be the turning point where Sean actually starts to find himself as a dancer? Lindsay was certainly shouting at him every step of the way to keep him on track and it worked. He’s got a long way to go yet, but there was actual dance content here and he didn’t look like he was lumbering through it.

Judges Scores: 7, 6, 6

My Score: 5

Ally Brooke & Sasha Farber

(Contemporary) That was absolutely incredible. From the choreography to the ethereal grace of Ally throughout, this was mesmerizing. In the tandem dancing portions, she and Sasha were perfectly in sync not only in the steps but in extensions and level of performance. Not only was this her best performance, but it may be the performance of the season so far. And not just because it’s contemporary, because Sasha gave her content in other styles and she nailed those, too.

Judges Scores: 9, 9, 9

My Score: 9

Lauren Alaina & Gleb Savchenko

(Samba) Lauren had a misstep with this week’s routine as she never really settled into the samba style. Her hip action was uninspired but she did have nice bounce. Part of it is probably her hesitation in being too sensual, as she’s been very open about her conservative values and concerns about going too far. The samba, though, is a sensual dance without being sexual, and maybe her fears held her back a bit.

Judges Scores: 8, 7, 8

My Score: 7

Kel Mitchell & Witney Carson

(Jazz) What a fun routine with so much personality. Kel looked like he was really in his element here, with lots of swagger and get down throughout this piece. He even got down literally for a quick breakdown breakdance segment. It was a joyous piece of celebration, and his partner work was great, his solo work was great, his rhythm was spot-on and he was having so much fun it was infectious. Kel is a natural mover and dancer, and these technical requirements didn’t trip him up much, leading to a polished and professional looking routine.

Judges Scores: 9, 8, 9

My Score: 8

Hannah Brown & Alan Bersten

(Foxtrot) It was elegant. It was beautiful. It was graceful. The smoke cover didn’t really help us see her feet very well, but every other part of Hannah’s body looked like it was absolutely on point throughout this dance, which was admittedly light on foxtrot content. Hannah continues to grow throughout this routine into an accomplished dancer, and she absolutely looks the part. Her arms and her hold are just gorgeous, and she looks like she’s floating through the air out there.

Judges Scores: 9, 7, 9

My Score: 8

James Van Der Beek & Emma Slater

(Paso Doble) This was a strong and powerful way to end the night. James was on fire and in total command throughout this piece; you almost didn’t even notice Emma. It’s a testament to his strength and commitment as a performer that he embodied this character (which was definitely not Jack Sparrow) so fully.

Judges Scores: 9, 8, 9

My Score: 9


With Karamo improving bit by bit this really should be the week that Sean Spicer finally sees the end of his journey. Ironically, it was his best week yet as well, which is just a testament to his partner and this show.

Outside of those two, who have flirted with the bottom all season, Lauren faltered every so slight this week, though she was only one point behind both Kate and Sailor.

Tom was right in that we have a very competitive season this time around. After just a few more eliminations, it’s going to be really tough each week to determine who goes home. And we do not have a front-runner anymore, as several dancers are currently vying for that spot.

When the credits started to role as they were just beginning to reveal who was safe, we knew this was yet another fakeout. That means we’ve only lost dancers every other week thus far this season, and Sean Spicer lives to dance another day.

We’re going to have to get a double elimination at some point, right?

“Dancing With the Stars” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Dancing with the Stars Season 28 Surprises Cast with No Elimination After Emotional Disney Night

No one is going home on Disney Night!

On Monday’s live episode of Dancing with the Stars‘ season 28, an elimination was not revealed after the competing stars and their pro dancing partners performed choreographed numbers to hit Disney tunes from The Lion King, Aladdin, Toy Story and Mary Poppins.

Many contestants made tearful tributes to family members as others felt nostalgic after visiting Disneyland in Anaheim, California.

A special highlight from the night was Ally Brooke and pro dancer Sasha Farber, who earned the highest score this season with a 27/30 for their contemporary to “Beauty and the Beast” from her favorite film, Beauty and the Beast.

“This song is so meaningful to me that one day I want it to be played at my wedding,” the former Fifth Harmony band member said, later adding an emotional homage: “This is my parents’ favorite film. This isn’t just for me, it’s for them. It’s so magical.”

Sailor Brinkley-Cook and her pro dancer Val Chmerkovskiy received a 24/30 for their Viennese waltz to “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” from Cinderella

Meanwhile, Karamo and partner Jenna Johnson received a 21/30 for their samba to “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” from the live-action The Lion King.

The Queer Eye star, 38, dedicated his performance to his sons Jason and Chris, both of whom he gained full custody of years ago.

“I’m not a dancer but I’ve been enjoying this process so much,” he said. “As a father, watching The Lion King you start to wonder what your kids can be going through and the pressures that they’re under. You want them to be good and know that they can be king one day. I didn’t have the best relationship with my father so I always wanted to be a great father to my sons. My sons are my world so I’m dedicating this song to let them know that they’re great.”

Karamo broke down in tears after his dance. “Seeing my babies who I love so much got me going. Literally, tears were streaming down my face that entire time,” he told Andrews.

Also, Kate Flannery and pro Pasha Pashkov earned a 24/30 for their jazz routine to “A Spoonful of Sugar” from Mary Poppins. “He is the most creative partner,” Flannery said of Pashkov after their performance. “He is such an asset to this show, you should be here forever.”

Their performance caused a bit of commotion after one of their props distracted judge Carrie Ann Inaba, who fell off her chair after standing up to peek at a broom that was used in the routine. Luckily, Inaba was fine after the tumble, and good-naturedly laughed at herself throughout the whole ordeal.

Sean Spicer and pro dancer Lindsay Arnold received a 19/30 for their quickstep to “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from Toy Story.

The former press secretary for Donald Trump, 48, paid tribute to his late father, whom he lovingly compared to Toy Story’s beloved Woody. “In 2015, my father got sick with cancer and we wanted to bring the whole family together to have that Disney experience to create a memory that will last forever, not just for me but for my children as well,” he said as he fought back tears.

“My father passed away from pancreatic cancer on Dec. 1 of 2016. Right now this is an opportunity to pay homage to my father: a great man, a great friend, a great inspiration,” Spicer added. “Getting to relive the memory I had here with my dad has been truly amazing. This is going to be so much more than a dance for me. I would like to dedicate this dance to my dad and all the fathers out there who suffered from cancer but still being the best dad that they can.”

Lauren Alaina and partner Gleb Savchenko scored a 23/30 for their samba to “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid.

Kel Mitchell and partner Witney Carson scored a 26/30 for their jazz routine to “We’re All in This Together” from High School Musical. “I feel like he really brought it this week. He has a theater background and he was in his element. It’s an honor to dance with him, I’m so proud of him,” Carson said of the All That alum.

Hannah Brown and partner Alan Bersten received a 25/30 for their foxtrot to “A Whole New World” from the live-action Aladdin.

And last but not least, James Van Der Beek and his partner Emma Slater earned a 26/30 for their paso doble to the theme song of Pirates of the Caribbean.

The latest elimination was Lamar Odom and Peta Murgatroyd. NFL legend Ray Lewis announced that he and pro partner Cheryl Burke were dropping out of the competition on the Sept. 30 episode. Singer Mary Wilson and pro dancer Brandon Armstrong were the first to be sent home.

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.

Review: Fall for Dance’s Sampler Platter of Extremes – The New York Times

Despite being an audience favorite, Hannah Brown has faced some tough judges’ critiques on this season of Dancing With the Stars, particularly from judge Carrie Ann Inaba. And when Inaba was assigned to be Brown’s coach for her redemption dance during week 10, the two had an emotional confrontation that left both of them in tears.

Brown and her partner Alan Bersten were asked to redo their rumba, which they’d originally performed in the third week. After the original dance, Inaba had some tough feedback for the former Bachelorette, saying that it “looked more like a cheerleading dance,” and that she needed to work on her hip movement.

During a pre-taped package that aired before Brown and Bersten’s performance on Monday night, viewers got an inside look into the rehearsals where Inaba made sure to crack down on Brown’s hip movements. The former Miss Alabama seemed to be in her head during the rehearsal and began to get frustrated and started tearing up. When Inaba walked towards Brown to comfort her, she told the judge “I don’t want to be touched.”

Inaba asked Brown to tell her how she was feeling, to which Brown replied that she felt discouraged by the feedback she had been getting over the past few weeks.

“I’m so sorry that’s how you felt, that makes me sad,” Inaba told Brown, while tearing up herself. “I’m sorry because that’s not what we’re here for. My job is to help you.”

The interaction also elicited some emotional reactions from fans, who found themselves crying over the raw moment:

How many times will I cry with @hannahbrown this year?
The limit does not exist.

— Hillary (@hillaryyoungs) November 19, 2019

I am LITERALLY CRYING!!!!!! 😭 That interaction in rehearsal between @hannahbrown and @carrieanninaba SO emotional! #DWTS

— Elsa❤️🇺🇸💚🐕💜🦋💛🇵🇷💙 (@Elsa050467) November 19, 2019

Others applauded Brown for her honesty and vulnerability, saying she should be proud of her work on the show.

I’m so so proud of @hannahbrown don’t let anyone bring you down . thank you for being you.. even when it’s hard. thank you for being vulnerable & real. I love you so much ❤️ #dwts #teamalanbamahannah

— ryan ♡s hannah & alan (@allisonholkerfp) November 19, 2019

@hannahbrown You don’t need to apologize… you are just being you ❤ #DWTS #teamalanbamahannah

After Brown and Bersten’s redemption rumba, Brown took the opportunity to apologize to Inaba for any perceived disrespect.

“I just want to say I am so sorry if it seemed like I was dismissive of you trying to help me,” Brown said. “I had a really hard day that day and it was really emotional trying to learn my contemporary and I didn’t handle my emotions very well and I know you’re trying to help me.”

Inaba accepted the apology and reminded Brown that she understands that the show is extremely difficult for all the contestants.

“I was never offended by that, I know that this journey for everybody is so challenging,” she said. “You improved a heck of a lot. I felt like you were very comfortable in your hips. I’m very proud of you Hannah, well done.”

The other judges seemed to agree, giving the dance rave reviews, and the two dancers earned 9s across the board.

Carrie Ann Inaba has seen a lot go down during her time as a judge on Dancing With the Stars, but even she was caught by surprise when Hannah Brown won the mirrorball trophy on Monday, November 25.

“It’s not what I expected,” Inaba, 51, admitted to Us Weekly exclusively after the season 28 finale. “But this whole season has been filled with ups and downs and unexpected twists and turns. I think, always, the right person wins on Dancing With the Stars because it’s a collaborative vote between the judges’ scores and the audience. And what the audience says is very important and we honor it.”

© ABC/Eric McCandless(2) Carrie Ann Inaba and Hannah Brown The Talk moderator pointed out that “a lot of people were shocked tonight in the ballroom,” something that she had never witnessed before on the ABC competition.

“I’ve never felt that from the ballroom when a winner was announced like tonight,” she said. “I think Hannah has had a really challenging journey, but I think in the end she rose, and I’m really proud of her.”

Although Inaba was shocked by the final results, she did not necessarily count out the possibility of Brown, 25, and the Bachelorette alum’s pro partner, Alan Bersten, taking home the grand prize.

“To be honest, I don’t know if I had a specific idea who I thought was going to win,” she told Us. “I just knew that all four — and even all five, actually, even James — could have been up here and it would’ve been great to see anybody win. It was just, for some reason, I don’t know why that was shocking.”

Looking forward, the In Living Color alum told Us that she is “excited to see where going to go from here.” She added, “This is a bittersweet moment for the season to end ‘cause it was such a great season. I’ll miss season 28.”

Inaba and Brown were at odds at one point during the season. The reality star felt that the judge had been harder on her than the other contestants, which Inaba ultimately clarified was never her intention. Brown apologized on the November 18 episode for being “dismissive” toward the choreographer, and they hugged it out.

Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson ended up being the runners-up, while Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber finished in third place and Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko landed in fourth. The season’s celebrity cast also included Sean Spicer, Karamo Brown, Sailor Brinkley-Cook and Lamar Odom, among others.
