I am so excited that the Dancing With The Stars winner was Laurie Hernandez. Hot on the dancing heels of her win, it was announced that she would go on tour with the DWTS pro-dancers. I am hoping this tour comes to a town near me. I absolutely loved this season. In addition to all of this, Laurie was in a Sing movie promo of sorts. Plus, she finally got to meet her favorite Singing star, Tori Kelly.The hit movie Sing is in theaters now. Laurie Hernandez recreated the supermarket scene from the movie Sing, where Rosita, the momma pig (voiced by Reese Witherspoon), gets her groove back. Laurie did such a great job recreating the fun of this scene and her DWTS dance partner Val Chmerkovskiy had a small cameo. Incidentally, Tori Kelly's character was a very shy elephant named Meena and it was her first time in a movie. The two met at a premiere.
Laurie Hernandez and Val Chmerkovskiy were crowned Season 23 champions of Dancing With The Stars. They were up against James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess, who also danced impressively well this season. Laurie's excitement is tangible and goes to show why her nickname is "The Human Emoji".
Val Chmerkovskiy and Laurie Hernandez made the announcement that they are going to be on tour this winter with the Dancing With The Stars: LIVE! - We Came To Dance Tour.
