Amber Riley's 'Dancing with the Stars' Win Should Grab the Attention of 'Pitch Perfect 2' Execs
Amber Riley is best known for her role as the diva-fabulous Mercedes Jones on Glee, but there's one more title that we can now add to the singer/actress' career: Winner of Dancing With the Stars ! Last night the actress danced her way to first place on Season 17 of ABC's Dancing With the Stars and beat out High School Musical star Corbin Bleu and reality star Jack Osbourne.
While we all knew that Amber Riley had a powerhouse voice, it seems that she also has a serious talent for dancing. The former Glee regular, who is now a recurring guest star on the show and was last seen in the Cory Monteith/Finn Hudson tribute episode, received a perfect score on her final three performances alongside her dance pro partner Derek Hough. In fact, Riley rarely scored anything below a 9 during her time on the show — looks like she was a pretty quick study!
Now that Amber Riley has proven that she's more than just a pretty voice, will she be able to use her Dancing With the Stars star power to move onto bigger and better projects? We would love to see Riley star on Broadway or in a movie-musical. (Is Pitch Perfect 2 looking for any new Aca-Bitches?). Whatever Amber Riley does, we hope that this star continues to shine.
