Normani Kordei Calls 'Dancing With The Stars' Loss "A Shocker"

"Never won a playoff game, never won a championship".

The NFL star earned his first flawless scores of the season in night one of the season 24 finale on Monday. But Normani has come so far in these past 10 weeks that she knows she can show the judges she's improved.

"This experience is something I'll remember forever", he said.

David Ross and Lindsay Arnold and the ensemble perform a baseball-themed freestyle Monday night on "Dancing with the Stars".

"I'm her biggest fan, you have no idea!" he explained. It's been so much fun getting to know [Lindsay], her being a part of my family.

"Well, she's had a full-on competition". All of the support has made me feel so special.

Going into the finale, Kordei and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy had the most ideal scores of the season, but they actually placed third, much to the shock (and boos) of the studio audience.

Kordei was hailed in the same video piece as "the best celebrity I have ever seen on the show", by pro dancer Peta Murgatroyd.

It was the first episode of the two-part DWTS finale last night.

Season 24 of the hit ABC reality show was chock-full of twists, with early frontrunners actress Heather Morris and Olympian Simone Biles eliminated long before many fans expected.

Ross' 8-year-old son Cole channeled "Dancing with the Stars" judge Len Goodman in delivering a brutally honest assessment of his dad's dancing abilities.

Normani and Val finished in second place with 118 total points, while David and Lindsay took third on the combined leaderboard with 109 total points. The pair danced a fox trot-salsa fusion to Bakermat's "Living" that earned 36 out of 40 points from the judges. Ross had consistently been receiving lower scores than both Jennings and Kordei, and the fact that he even reached finale night was a shock to many.

Jennings went on to earn his first ideal scores from the judges Monday night for both his sultry Viennese Waltz redemption dance and infectious freestyle performance, securing his spot at the top.
