If Shawn Johnson wins the all-star season of Dancing with the Stars, she’ll become the first double champion in DWTS history! Helping her achieve such a victory is the Fierce Five, a dedicated group of gymnasts from which we will likely see at least one future DWTS contestant (I’m hoping for Gabby Douglas!). How did the Fierce Five react to their big performance?
Gymnasts unite! Shawn Johnson brought on the gold medal women’s gymnastics team for her freestyle performance on Dancing with the Stars – talk about a smart decision! All five were thrilled to help their good friend and fellow gymnast, as they later made clear on Twitter.
Aly Raisman was first to respond, tweeting, “OMG. THAT WAS SO AWESOME.” Gabby Douglas quickly retweeted Aly’s post and then added, “Had soo much fun tonight performing with Shawn & Derek! Vote Vote Vote!” Gabby also included an Instagram picture in which the Fierce Five, Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough all posed together.
Jordyn Wieber was grateful for the opportunity to perform on Dancing with the Stars, tweeting, “WOW! Thank you so much @ShawnJohnson and @derekhough for letting us be a part of DWTS you guys were amazing tonight!” She then added, “EVERYBODY VOTE FOR SHAWN AND DEREK!” McKayla Maroney chimed in, warning, “You guys better vote for Shawn & Derek..(; Who liked our finale dance?”
Kyla Ross made a point of congratulating all the finalists on Dancing with the Stars, although she still encouraged her followers to vote for Shawn and Derek. “Congrats to all three of the #DWTSAllStars finalists!!! You all were amazing tonight.”
We were thrilled to see such an amazing group of young women grace the DWTS stage with their presence. Are you hoping to see any of the Fierce Five on the next season of Dancing with the Stars? Leave a comment and let us know!
