Singer Thu Minh and her partner Lechezar Todorov became champions in the Vietnamese version Dancing with the Stars 2011 as the final round of the hit reality TV show was aired live on Sunday in Hanoi.
This is the second time the competition has been organised in Vietnam.
At the finale at Quan Ngua Sport Complex, Minh beat her two strong competitors: singers Nguyen Vu and Thuy Tien to deservedly win the Golden Cup with confident and powerful dance moves set against the background music of her hit “Duong Cong (The Curve).
During around 12 weeks of the competition, the singer received high scores from the jury.
Besides the Silver and Bronze cups awarded to Thuy Tien and Nguyen Vu respectively, additional prizes were also given to other competitors.
The Passion prize was offered to rocker Pham Anh Khoa while the Impressive Couple prize went to actor Dai Nghia and his partner. Actor Huy Khanh and his partner received the prize of Compatible Couple while model Vu Thu Phuong and her partner got the prize for the Most Beautiful Couple. Actor Thanh Thuy and her partner won the prize for Best Latin Dance.
Although this year’s season concluded successfully, it did not satisfy the public’s expectation.
Dancing with the stars this year looked like a vaudeville stage with entertainment performances rather than a dance sport show, four members of the show’s jury said.
