Which pro did Donny Osmond dance with on “Dancing with the Stars?”
For Dancing with the Stars, Osmond paired up with pro-Kym Johnson Herjavec. The couple faced off against singer Mya and television correspondent Kelly Osbourne. Mya would place second and Osbourne third, respectively.
A fan favorite from the start of the season, Osmond worked hard to learn his routines and threw himself entirely into the character of each dance. However, the entertainer endeared himself to viewers by being a good sport and playfully making fun of his age. At the time of his Dancing with the Stars debut, Osmond was 52-years-old.
In an interview with Good Morning America on the heels of his mirrorball win, Osmond famously said, “I beat Marie.” His sister Marie Osmond competed on the series during season five.
“I am really proud of this. I am the oldest recipient of the Mirror Ball Trophy,” Osmond declared. At the time, he planned to put the trophy “at the top of my house with a spotlight on it.”
