"Dancing with the Stars"- EIGHTH SEASON FINALE

The show opens with Lady GaGa performing her first #1 single, "Just Dance".

After the first several eliminated couples each dance one more time, the winner of the Professional Dancers Competition, and becoming a dance partner for a celebrity next season is...

...Anna Demidova! She then gets to perform the dance that won it for her, the Quick Step with Maksim Chermovskiy.

After that, we see a few more eliminated couples perform, most notably Chuck Wicks & Julianne Hough; this is Julianne's final season on the show so that she can really focus on her country singing career.

Jeffrey Ross then comes out to roast this season's final teams.

John Henson and Jill Wagner of "Wipeout" are in the audience tonight.

After the last two eliminated teams perform (Lil' Kim & Derek Hough and Ty Murray & Chelsie Hightower), it's time for each of the three remaining teams to dance one more time.

Shawn Johnson & Mark Ballas dance the Cha-Cha-Cha to Michael Jackson's "Pretty Young Thing".
