TV Watch Dancing with the Stars
Tamar Braxton was taken to the hospital during the dress rehearsal for Dancing with the Stars Monday. According to her pro Val Chmerkovskiy, Braxton was sick with pneumonia.
Despite missing most of the show, she was not eliminated from competition after making a dramatic, last-minute return 20 minutes before the end of the episode.
Bindi Irwin is walking away from season 21 of Dancing with the Stars with not just a mirror-ball trophy, but also a lifelong friend.
"[DWTS] is such a special experience," the young conservationist told PEOPLE moments after her big win Tuesday night.
And making her months spent on the ABC reality dance competition even more special was her dance partner Derek Hough.
Bindi Irwin was surrounded by friends and family after winning season 21 of Dancing with the Stars, but there was one person missing that she wished had been there – her father.
"I couldn't even imagine if [he] was here right now," the young conservationist told reporters of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin. "Honestly, I hope that he'd be proud of me. And I hope that I am able to carry-on in his footsteps and make sure that his legacy lives on."
Bindi Irwin is known for being a beacon of positivity, but even she can find at least one thing she's glad to put behind her now that her time on Dancing with the Stars is over.
"My feet are pretty cut up right now," the 17-year-old conservationist told PEOPLE just minutes after winning the mirror-ball trophy for season 21 of the ABC reality dance competition.
Season 21 of Dancing with the Stars may be done, but Alek Skarlatos' dancing days are far from over.
PEOPLE staff writer (and resident Dancing with the Stars season 21 expert) Patrick Gomez predicts who will take home the mirror-ball trophy Tuesday night:
Okay, lets get the obvious out of the way: Bindi Irwin has been the front-runner since the very first episode of season 21.
But even though she's been at the top of the pack since day one, I wouldn't count out Alek Skarlatos or Nick Carter just yet.
Don't fret, Dancing with the Stars fans!
Season 21 of the ABC reality dance competition may be coming to an end Tuesday night, but next season is just around the corner.
That's right, season 22 will premiere March 21, 2016, PEOPLE can announce exclusively.
Bindi Irwin has spent 10 weeks paying tribute to her late father on Dancing with the Stars, but Monday's performance was the most emotional yet.
Irwin and the judges were in tears following her tribute honoring Steve Irwin, with the freestyle dance earning her perfect 10s.
And then there were three.
Dancing with the Stars made a heartbreaking elimination, whittling the couples down from four to three in Monday's episode.
