Last night, Birmingham native Jordan Fisher won the coveted Mirrorball trophy as ‘Dancing with the Stars’ champion for Season 25.
“You are the most complete male celebrity ever on ‘Dancing with the Stars!'” declared Len Goodman, the show’s legendary judge.
Fisher edged out violinist Lindsey Stirling for the coveted trophy.
Before Fisher’s second to last dance of the evening, ‘Dancing with the Stars’ showed a video about his life growing up in the Magic City. The biographical piece interviewed Fisher’s parents and sister, Red Mountain Theatre Company’s Executive Director Keith Cromwell and the Broadway’s Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Earlier in the season, the show also profiled Fisher’s life during the show’s “Most Memorable Year” theme night.
Born in Birmingham and growing up in Trussville, Fisher was a part of the Red Mountain Theatre Company’s youth programs. He has landed several roles on Disney TV shows and movies, including recurring roles on the television series The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Liv and Maddie. .A talented singer, Fisher has also performed in the smash Broadway musical hit Hamilton.
The suspenseful competition was not decided until the last two minutes of the program. Last night’s final dances featured perfect scores from Jordan and his dance partner Lindsey Arnold and runner-ups Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas.
The future looks bright for Birmingham’s Jordan Fisher. It was announced during the finale that he will be joining the Dancing with the Stars winter tour that begins on November 30th. The tour will arrive in Birmingham on February 9th (can we say homecoming!) at the BJCC.
He is also slated to release his debut album this spring, according to People Magazine.
