I got through "Dancing with the Stars" Monday night without falling asleep. I really didn't care who won because they were all so good this season. Apolo and Julianne were adorable together and Joey and Kym had fantastic showmanship. Laila is so beautiful; her smile lights up a whole room. Any one of them could have won and it would have pleased me.
