Dancing With the Stars to do all-athlete edition in spring

Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold win Season 25 of 'Dancing with the Stars'

Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold win Season 25 of 'Dancing with the Stars'

"You're right up there with the best we've seen on this show!"

The 25th cycle of Dancing With the Stars neared its close Monday night, with the first part of the finale assisting an ABC win.

Stirling and pro partner Ballas brilliantly executed a jive performance to "Jitterbug", for which they picked up a ideal 30 out of 30 points. Muniz performed a weirdly impressive Argentine Tango. However, they bounced back to earn the big victory.

Later, for the "fusion challenge", the two did a salsa/Paso Doble mix that got another flawless 30 mark and had judge Len Goodman raving, "You are the most complete male celebrity ever on 'DWTS'". An emotional Lindsey said the show "really made me re-learn who I am in a really different way, and it's been awesome".

'We don't need a liberal:' Trump discounts Roy Moore accusations
An appearance by the president did not work out too well for his original Alabama Senate candidate, Luther Strange. Trump pointed to Moore's assertions that he did nothing wrong. "I do have to say, 40 years is a long time".

Backstage after the show, Jordan praised Lindsay for her hard work. This is Arnold's first Mirror Ball win as a pro even though she made it to the final three during three other seasons.

He added that he's just bought a new place and may make a brand-new space for his Mirror Ball Trophy, while Linsday said she might just have "Thanksgiving dinner with it on the table".

The season finale not only crowns a victor from the three Dancing with the Stars season 25 finalists, but has several contestants participating in special performances.

The mini-season is set to air in the spring, and ABC revealed that 10 athletes from all different segments of the sports world will go head-to-head for the Mirrorball trophy.
