AUSSIE KYM WINS THE US TROPHYAUSTRALIAN ballroom dancing star Kym Johnson has teamed up with 1970s teen idol Donny Osmond to win America’s version of TV reality show Dancing with the Stars.
The 33-year-old blonde from Sydney and 51-year-old Osmond were crowned champions in front of a US TV audience of more than 20 million.
Singer Mya was the second-placed celebrity while the surprise of the season, Kelly Osbourne, daughter of heavy metal legend Ozzy Osbourne, came third.
Johnson is no stranger to winning Dancing with the Stars.
In 2005 she teamed with TV presenter Tom Williams to win the Australia’s Dancing with the Stars.
Johnson was engaged to Australian cricketer Shane Watson at the time but ended the relationship and became involved with Williams.
In 2006 she moved to the US where she has become a fixture on Dancing with the Stars, finishing second twice with N’Sync’s Joey Fatone and gridiron star Warren Sapp.
In other seasons she was paired with TV talkshow host Jerry Springer, billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks basketball team Mark Cuban and Las Vegas comedian Penn Jillette.
