'Dancing With the Stars' Winner Amber Riley Takes Victory Lap on 'GMA' (Video)
The "Glee" alum joins Derek Hough just a few hours after her win to perform the Charleston and talk about her future plans.
Taking a red-eye from Los Angeles to New York just a few hours after her Dancing With the Stars victory did not slow Amber Riley down at all on Wednesday morning. The Glee alum continued her victory tour on Good Morning America, performing one of her winning dances.
Riley, appearing alongside partner Derek Hough and runners up Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke and Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff, chatted with the GMA hosts and performed their umpteenth encore of the Charleston that helped them secure Hough's fifth mirrorball trophy. (The veteran pro now stands heads above his closest rivals in the DWTS pro pool.)
"It meant a lot to me," said Riley. "Man, it was hard. It was something I’ve never done before and I put myself in a position to do something new and hard every single week."
Riley, who is no longer a regular on Glee, also talked about her prospects -- though she was quick to note she was more concerned with resting.
"I'm not really sure, but I do know I'm going to sleep," she said. "I have a couple meetings next week, so we'll see."
Watch the clip of the duo dancing their Charleston again below, where Hough expertly helps Riley ditch her mic, mid-routine, when it interferes with her moves.
