Last season, many viewers were surprised at the stars who ended up in the finale. Season 24 began in late March with 12 celeb competitors including Glee star — and former Beyoncé backup dancer — Heather Morris, Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan, pro bull rider Bonner Bolton, and Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, however, the final three were Chicago Cubs player David Ross, NFL player Rashad Jennings, and Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei. Many believed frontrunners Heather and Simone would end up in the final episode, but Heather was shockingly voted off the show in Week 6 and Simone left in the semifinals during Week 9. Rashad ended up winning with his pro partner, Emma. Don’t forget to tune in tonight at 8 p.m. EST on ABC to watch the Dancing With the Stars Season 25 premiere!
