'DWTS: Juniors' fans praise season’s winner after the ‘horrible ending’ of the adult version
"Dancing With The Stars: Juniors" have announced their very first winner and fans are loving the chosen team.
Fans of the show have called these two kids the "epitome" of the dancing show. Following the disappointment of last week, they're ecstatic about these results.
Sky Brown, 10, and JT Church, 12, were the favorites for many followers of the "DWTS: Juniors" which premiered back in October. Now, as predicted, Brown and her professional dance partner have won it all.

After their perfect scores, the two each took home a mirrorball trophy on Sunday night. Their mentor, Alan Bersten also copped the coveted top prize as part of the team.
Judge Val Chmerkovskiy, 32, said:
"The bottom line is it's not about how much you dance it's not about how much you smile, it's about your heart, and how you perform with your heart every single time. You've proven, like I knew this show would, that you're never too young to change the world."
Brown, who is a professional skateboard and surfer, spoke to ET after the win:
"I feel amazing and I just gotta say we are all winners."
Ever the sweetheart, Brown said she would put the trophy on the wall in her room.
"[I'm gonna] look at it every day before I go surfing and remember you guys."
The strong bond between the three during the interview was hard to miss, with Church saying, "It was a team effort."
The three other finalists were Ariana Greenblatt, Mackenzie Ziegler, and Miles Brown. Despite the loss, they were also extremely thankful to have had the experience on the show making friends.
In comparison, competitors on the adult show may or may not have shared those sentiments in full due to the shocking results.
For all their hard work, most agreed that the adult "DWTS" winners were less than deserving of their title when stacked against their competitors.
Bobby Bones and his professional dance partner Sharna Burgess received the Mirrorball Trophy. Although Jones had worked as hard as he could, even the country music DJ expressed doubt that he should have the title.
As for the fans, many were enraged. Some vowed never to watch the show's upcoming season, deeming it a popularity contest rather than a talent show.
Overall, a large number called for the show to be canceled in light of the unexpected results. They said it reflected poorly on the show's integrity regardless of the fact that it was fans who voted for Bones.
Meanwhile, "DWTS: Juniors" will certainly be remembered for the energy the young kids brought to the stage. But the current cast is moving on to other projects in their young careers.
Runner-up Greenblatt is set to star on "The One and Only Ivan," a motion picture remake of Katherine Applegate's bestselling book of the same name.
Miles Brown can soon be watched in his recently filmed movie "Emmett." In it, he is a child prodigy who works with a retiree to stop a family disaster.
We hope to see many more seasons of the show where such positive kids get to shine their light for the world to see.
