The 'American Idol' alum steals the show with a medley of 'Dark Side' and 'Stronger', while the eliminated 'DWTS' contestant delivers a moving rendition of 'The Way We Were'.
Season 14 of "Dancing with the Stars" came to a close with the crowning of Donald Driver and his pro partner Peta Murgatroyd as its champion, but it wasn't the only highlight from the finale show. On Tuesday, May 22 night, Kelly Clarkson and Gladys Knight took over the ballroom floor to entertain the audience and participants alike.
First to perform was 30-year-old Clarkson. The very first winner of "American Idol" delivered a medley of her newest single "Dark Side" and her hit song "Stronger". As she sang the first verse of "Dark Side", pro dancers Kym Johnson, Tony Dovolani, Anna Trebunskaya and Tristan MacManus took the floor to perform their dance routine.
Knight later returned to the dance floor to sing her rendition of "The Way We Were". The soul singer who got eliminated from the competition in late April moved many to tears as the final three; NFL player Driver, telenovela star William Levy and classical singer Katherine Jenkins; awaited their fate.
