Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke win ABC's 'Dancing with the Stars 3'

UPI News Service, 11/15/2006 

Football great Emmitt Smith Wednesday won the third season competition of ABC's U.S. sensation, "Dancing with the Stars."

The win was the second for Smith's professional partner, Cheryl Burke.

Actor Mario Lopez finished second.

"My first impression (of Smith was), he's a big guy," Burke said. "How am I going to get him to ballroom dance? I would never have thought Emmitt could dance the way he can dance now."

Smith praised Burke for her patience, "even when I was stubborn."

Judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman heaped praise on the NFL MVP during Tuesday's final round, during which Smith posted perfect scores on two of the three rounds.

"You became a dancer in the last few weeks," Inaba said.

"You're delivering like a true professional," Bruno Tonioli told Smith.

Smith and Burke performed an encore of their samba during Wednesday's broadcast.

"Dancing with the Stars" first two editions were won by singer Drew Lachey and soap star Kelly Monaco.
