Nicole Scherzinger and her partner Derek Hough triumphed as the winning dance pair on Dancing with the Stars last night, and we don’t want to say we told you so… but we did. Then again, it’s not very surprising that a woman who is paid to dance for a living beat out an 80-year old former astronaut and a bunch of opportunistic reality stars. In fact, it’d be pretty embarrassing if she didn’t win.

But congrats, Nicole! You can take introduce those award-winning dance moves to the newest members of the Pussycat Dolls, though with their background on various TV dance shows like So You Think You Can Dance? and America’s Best Dance Crew, we have a feeling they could easily win DWTS, too.

In case you missed last night’s finale, here’s Nicole and Derek’s final judged performance on the show, set to “Proud Mary”:

And here’s the announcement that Nicole and Derek won the whole thing. Why is she so surprised? Doesn’t she know she was the favorite to win from the beginning?
