NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - Laurie and Val win Dancing with the Stars.

Laurie is Laurie Hernandez, the Olympian.

Val is professional dancer Valentin Chmerkovskiy.

Together, they take home the famous mirror ball trophy as winners of Dancing with the Stars 23rd season on WGNO ABC 26 and ABC Television.

WGNO News with a Twist features guy Wild Bill Wood is not at all surprised by Val's victory.  When Val was in New Orleans performing with his brother Maks at the Saenger Theatre, Val took time teach Wild Bill a move or two on the sidewalk in front of the Saenger.

Val is a natural.

Wild Bill, is not.
