7:03 am
out of the van and greet everybody, it just tells you the kind of people they are. wonderful, wonderful. >> absolutely. >> all right. but we good to talk about what happened. a major traffic jam in los angeles. millions of americans are about to hit the roads. this is a live look at airport lines across the country. it is the busiest day of the holiday season, two winter storms are moving in. ginger is here with the details. what do we have? >> we've got, yeah, two win overnight, fresh accidents, new snow and this is just in minneapolis. there is a large area of our nation that we'll watch from chicago to detroit down to houston this morning. fresh slide-offs as a menacing m winter storm marches from the rockies to the plains. crippling white knuckle driving and a major headache just in time for the busiest travel week
7:04 am
tonight is traditionally the most difficult time. >> reporter: the most popular mode of transportation this thanksgiving the road. an expected 43.5 million people will drive more than 50 miles to reach their destination and already seen deadly accidents and major gridlock due to extra cars and icy roads. the best time to venture out before 11:00 a.m. this morning. if not you'll want to wait until after 7:00 p.m. tonight thanksgiving day and black friday will be two of the best days to hit the road and the worst, sunday, any time between 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., experts are expecting an 240% increase in traffic jams and 100% increase in accidents throughout the day. so we've got winter weather advisories also popping up in parts of the rockies, sierras, cascades and minnesota and wisconsin for the next 12 hours or so. along that cold front there are a couple of areas and roads i'd
7:05 am
any highway through chicago also i-75, detroit and cincinnati. stopped at 7:00 p.m. if you're one of those people that will wait until after the rush those are two pockets and macy's looks dry to start and rain, snow in the upper elevations. guys, i have to mention, even though we've got the problems out west, if you're dry now and going to grandma's house and got good weather not going to be the case when you go back. i have the sunday forecast in just a couple of moments when everybody comes back from the holiday. >> the other e airport officials are warning flyers to arrive early. louisville, long lines after a power outage and in chicago, lines are growing there too. abc's alex perez is at o'hare airport with plenty of company there. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey, good morning, robin. that's right. we do have a lot of company. you can see the crowds starting to grow here at terminal one already.
7:06 am
quickly. if they're more busy and crowded, 27.3 million will fly. 2.5% more than last year, 2.5 million passengers at airports today alone. now, in fact, airlines are adding 74,000 seats each day just to keep up with demand. now, the tsa since the summer added about 1400 additional agents and has made many part-time agents full are, of course, insisting that you show up early, give yourself extra time and say you should even give yourself additional time just to get to the airport. robin. >> that's true. all right. >> we'll move to the trump transition. just learned the president-elect trump picked south carolina governor nikki haley to be u.n. ambassador. it comes as the trump family settles in at their mar-a-lago estate to celebrate thanksgiving and after that "the new york times" interview where he softened and even reversed major
7:07 am
the latest. >> reporter: that appointment of nikki haley as u.n. ambassador could well be a signal that trump is willing to work even with those who have opposed him in the past. and it comes as trump himself seems to be retreating from some of his biggest campaign pledges. the 44-year-old republican governor was a supporter of marco rubio in the primaries but she has since come around. >> well, i won't pretend to have always been president-elect's biggest cheerleader. i did vote absolutely thrilled to see him win. >> reporter: haley is the daughter of indian immigrants who led the charge to remove the confederate flag from south carolina's capital but not clear how much foreign policy experience she has. her appointment comes as the president-elect used a meeting with "the new york times" to backtrack on some of his biggest applause lines from the campaign trail. the crowd chanted "lock her up"
7:08 am
criminal charges against hillary clinton. >> if i win, i am going to ask my attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor to look into her crimes. >> reporter: the president-elect trump told "the times" he's now having second thoughts about following through on that threat. i think it would be very, very divisive for the country, he said, adding, i don't want to hurt the clintons, i really don't. she went throu a suffered greatly. >> well, so much for locking her up, i guess. >> reporter: senator lindsey graham told fox news that's not good enough. >> i do hope that all the things that donald trump said about how crooked she was, that we just don't let it go without some serious effort to see if the law was violated. >> reporter: on climate change another issue candidate trump hit hard. >> we will also cancel billions in global warming payments to
7:09 am
trump is now more noncommittal, he told "the times," i have an open mind to it. and on torturing potential terror suspects. >> i would bring back waterboarding and i'd bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding. >> reporter: the president-elect indicated he'd changed his mind about that after his sit-down with retired general james mattis, now a candidate for secretary of defense. he says mattis told him establishing trust was far more effective than torture, give me a couple of beers and he willi'll better. trump was impressed by that answer. he reversed himself on "the new york times" which throughout the campaign he lambasted as a faying paper, now he admits it he reads it every day although he joked he'd live 20 years longer if he didn't. >> you two in that "the new york times" interview donald trump was also pressed on possible conflicts of interest involving his business operations around
7:10 am
about his foundation. our chief investigative correspondent brian ross is here with more on that. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning. with the election safely behind him donald trump's sfoundation s admitting admitting it was guilty of self-dealing. he said he could run his country perfectly all at the same time. from his penthouse apartment trump has repeatedly used his new position to meet push his business interests overseas. some proudly posting pictures online and now he tells "the new york times," the law is on my side. the president can't have a conflict of interest. >> i think that we're only at the beginning on the cusp of potential controversy involving conflicts of interest. >> reporter: during the campaign trump and his surrogates denounced an investigation into the trump charitable foundation as political. >> are you confident that the trump foundation has followed
7:11 am
i mean my lawyers do it. >> reporter: in a new filing the trump foundation admits it was guilty of self-dealing following reports by "the washington post" that trump used the charity to pay for a portrait of himself, to help settle lawsuit, even to buy a signed football helmet. and the new filing also reveals that the trump foundation last year just like the clinton foundation accepted a huge donation, $150,000 in trump's case from a ukrainian kind that led to allegations by trump that the clintons and their foundation were corrupt. >> clinton donors got favorable treatment. >> there needs to be a ban on contributions to the trump foundation and i think the children in particular should not be giving paid speaking fees particularly overseas because, again, that is a common method that foreign ole barks will use to curry favor with political figures in the united states. >> reporter: and that's the man who wrote so critically about
7:12 am
foundation, now a trump insider. peter schweitzer says he fears trump is already creating a climate in which people overseas will try to get to him through his foundation or his business or his children. george. >> okay, brian, thanks very much. more on that from dan abrams and jon karl. we'll come back to that in a minute. jon, let me begin with you and the appointment of nikki haley, had tough words for donald trump throughout the campaign. they appeared to patch it up. this is a real effort by the president-elect to reach out beyond his base. we also offered hud secretary. >> reporter: absolutely, two people that trump sparred with mightily during the primaries and patched it up with ben carson quite some time ago but i'm also told there's very serious consideration being given to mitt romney as secretary of state. an effort by trump to show that he will reach out, that he will show flexibility, both in terms of who he is putting in his cabinet and also in terms of the positions he is taking. >> real dogfight for secretary
7:13 am
loyalist there as well. some people saying senator bob corker could be in play, even general david petraeus. >> reporter: i'm told there's two schools, strong advocates for mitt romney for the symbol that would send to the wired republican party into the foreign policy establishment but thoses like newt gingrich who came out to say mitt romney would be a big mistake. he'd be concerned mitt romney as about mitt romney than about donald trump. >> okay, let's talk about these conflicts with dan abrams. president-elect really drew a hard line in that "the new york times" interview yesterday saying the president can't have a conflict of interest. >> as a legal matter the federal statute that applies to conflicts of are federal employees doesn't apply to the president. he's right on that. there is another provision in the constitution which basically says that a foreign government can't give a gift. that one probably does apply to
7:14 am
thing that i'd be most worried about with regard to these conflicts is the possibility that if he stays involved in any way, he's then subject to lawsuits, as well and so that's the real concern i'd have as a legal matter. >> the real questions what kind of fire wall he could set up if the kids are running the business, run every possible transaction by the white house counsel's office. >> in theory. the ultimate thing would be to now to new developments in that school bus crash in tennessee. this morning investigators are trying to piece together what went wrong and the driver is facing multiple charges. abc's david kerley has the latest. >> reporter: two pictures this morning, the wreckage of the school bus and the wreckage of families. 9-year-old corps -- cordayja jones
7:15 am
we've learned the 24-year-old driver only received his commercial license in april and just two months ago had an accident in his bus hitting a car. these two boys survived the horrific crash. >> he started turing real fast around the corner. >> it feel like the world was turning upside down. >> he hit a mailbox and garbage can and that's can and that's when the tree went through the bus. >> reporter: the newest statistics, each year on average five stu school bus dents but in an instant five were lotz here chattanooga renewing the call for seat belts. the cost of 2,000 to $5,000 per bus would mean millions for school districts federal safety officials say it is time. >> we got to quit identifying the barriers why it can't get done and talk about how we get a three-point seat belt on every school bus. >> reporter: as of this morning only six states require seat
7:16 am
i talked to a first responder, a veteran firefighter yesterday. he had to stop watching the coverage because of that horrific scene he to deal with just a couple of days ago. >> can only imagine, thanks for being there for us. amy is back from there with the morning's other top stories starting with a big headline aboutover time pay. >> good morning, guys. 4 million americans will now not be getting that increase in overtime pay they may have been expecting. a federal judge blocked a new obama administration rule set to take effect next week. it would have made available to salaried workersering up to $47,000 a year. business groups challenged that rule arguing the government is overstepping its authority. well, police say a person of interest is in custody after the shooting of a police officer at wayne state university in detroit. officer colin rose was shot in the head while investigating car break-ins. he is out of surgery but is in critical condition. in philadelphia, police are trying to figure out who placed an explosive device inside a

7:18 am
>> lucky fella, i guess. all right, thank you, amy. now, take a look at this. it might be the worst mannequin challenge ever. it's done by some of the brightest and best stars. you can see lights flashing, people are blinking. they're all over the place but this happened tuesday at president obama's medal of freedom ceremony. >> it's pretty good. >> george, if you really break it down -- if you really break it down, it's a little bit of movement going on >> wow. >> you're tough. >> i'm very tough. >> i got to post mine later on. i'm not moving at all. the sweetest moment, ellen degeneres was moved to tears when she received her medal. the president praised her for her courage in coming out 20 years ago on her sitcom and it was really amazing. really inspiring. >> a lot of great moments. >> the stars were honored. >> that's it. >> ginger, what do you have. >> we have a lot of great

we're talking about the razr. we're breaking down more of this morning's top stories. gio is here at the table. did i see your husband over there?
7:39 am
warning as millions gear up for those big black friday and cyber monday deals. authorities are cautioning americans about recalled and counterfeit toys. becky is going to join us. becky worley is joining us with more. let's start with these recalled toys because many of them are still available online and there's a new report out about this. tell us about it, becky. >> yeah, it found you really have to pay attention to the toys you're buying, robin, especially toys for toddler talking anyin part, magnets. older, anything with a battery. since january of 2015 there have been over 40 recalls of toys and children's products. 35 million units we're talking about, some of which are still for sale through third party online sellers. let's go through that. a truck from the dollar store that can cut skin. a remote control copter that has overheating problems. all the companies voluntarily
7:40 am
mean they're not still for sale especially on the internet, robin. >> but, becky, more than discuss recalled toys but a lot of counterfeit toys out there, also. >> exactly right. we saw yesterday a big press conference, homeland security and immigration control talking about counterfeit items, the dangers they pose, especially with batteries. we've seen a lawsuit over a counterfeit hoverboard that burned a house to the ground. u.s. customs seizing $70,000 in counterfeit toys. electronics with batteries, you need to be sure you're buying from a reputable manufacturer. even if it's not electronic, toys need extra scrutiny. they could have high lead level, parts and pieces. they aren't tested so we don't know. if the price seems too good to be true and don't know the reseller, don't take the chance. >> all good things to keep in mind. >> a good deal is not always a good deal. thank you, becky. and up next, before you cook those thanksgiving bird, a
7:41 am
a trend that is dangerous and let's take a look at this clip from "modern family" to give you an idea. >> the key is you drop it nice and gentle like. oh, god! >> >> not far off. >> we're laughing about this. it's very funny, of course, but there's a real serious concern when a lot of people are trying to deep fry turkeys. fires. they're terrible. talking about five deaths every year, 900 homes destroyed. so we've got tips from turkey fryer experts. you want to keep that fryer at least 10 feet away from your home on a stable surface. you want to monitor those fluid levels. you don't want it to overflow. you want to fully thaw that turkey. you don't want that frozen turkey to be going into the fryer and you want to monitor the temperature. you want to avoid the oil smoke point. that's what gets very dangerous
7:42 am
tip. maybe we can show this. that's a drone dropping. if you could stay away from it. >> going to the extreme here. >> that's a little turkey. that's a personal turkey right there. >> i think it's just a leg. i don't know what that is. >> have you ever had itty it's delicious. >> i have it every year but i have somebody else make it. have somebody else cook it. >> of course, you do. smart man. are there other dangers we should be aware of? >> this is surprising. the usda, wash the turkey before they eat it before they cook it. the usda says don't wash it. just use it, just cook it raw and you'll be fine because back tear i can't then won't spread all over the table. that's what you do. >> same thing with chicken. do not wash it. you feel like you're doing something good. thank you. now if you're no taggic for that flip phone you may be in luck because apple has been grabbed a new patent for a foldable device sparking
7:43 am
may be back. what is old could be new again, nick? >> well, listen, there is clearly a bit of hipster retro chic action going on here but these are great little phones. it's a great design. it's a little hard to figure out exactly what apple is up to because they are very secret and file these patent applications using engineers' names rather than saying apple corporation but looking at the reckon it could be just like a flip phone or maybe fold in three, also, could be kind of like two iphones sort of back-to-back so it is sort of like that so you got a bendy screen. only thing that could make it cooler in my book is if it had an eight-track player and a shag pile carpet. that's not going to happen. >> oh, behave. oh, behave. >> flip phones haven't been popular for years so why do you
7:44 am
it seems like we want to go in another direction. >> well, listen, it's a great design and, you know, i'm thinking they could use it. you could have maybe one app going on one side, another app on the other side. a two player game perhaps. you could use that as a stand so you can watch videos without holding your phone in your sweaty little hand. who knows. we don't really know where they're going with this. listen, it might go nowhere. apple files a bunch of patents. >> they do. >> as they told us. not everythin maybe the 9 or 10 but, people, please don't start standing in line. this may never happen. i hope it does. but it may never happen. >> let's check with our tech guru, becky, what say you? >> robin, it's 2006, it wants its design back. are you kidding me? i mean, i can't have a headphone jack and you're going to give me things, no. no. >> would you go for it. >> let me tell you something, i miss something. i miss doing when you're angry.
7:45 am
>> just hang up. >> you brought back anger nostalgia. >> that's what i was thinking. >> my friend artie stocks up on flip phones and all he uses. he does not use a smartphone at all. >> nick, becky, gio, thank you very much. coming up in two minute, why high school football game is heading to court. >> what? plus, our huge "dancing" after-party. the finalists are all here and we're starting your holiday weekend right. shoes on. america's beverage companies have come together to bring you more ways to help reduce calories from sugar. with more great tasting beverages with less sugar or no sugar at all, smaller portion sizes, clear calorie labels, and signs reminding everyone to think balance before choosing their beverages. we know you care about reducing the sugar in your family's diet,

oh, well, nothing we can do about it now. they huddled up and came up with this new play, take them to court with the trip to the state championship on the line. the referee's bad call cost an illinois high school a spot in the state championship. but the team is now asking a judge to throw the flag. fenwick high school filed a lawsuit claiming it's the rightful winner of this state semifinal game it lost saturday to plainfie time but here's the ching. the game should have never gone to overtime and all sides agree. >> they should have looked at the rulebook, made a call. something. on the last play of the game, i mean, come on. >> such a travesty. that the call was made incorrectly by the refs. >> reporter: what happened? leading 10-7 fenwick ran out the clock on what it thought would be the last play of the game. the ref rightly called a penalty on fenwick but incorrectly awarded plainfield what's called

an extra play. they kicked a field goal and ultimately won in overtime. >> the rule states that they were not supposed to get another play at that point. >> reporter: the rules also clearly state referee's decisions are final. the athletic association refused to overturn the outcome. even after acknowledging and apologizing for the error. plainfield district officials say they empa thiedz with fenwick and they should be proud however they're preparing for the state championship game on in other words, sucks for you. look, look here, the state athletic association said we can't do anything because the rules state we can't change it but lawyers found a case from 2009 where they did overturn a soccer game. >> timing. it has to happen before the game, saturday? >> yeah, the championship game is saturday afternoon. >> are they practicing leading up just in case. >> everybody is practicing just in case but on this standby. >> did soccer have the same

8:04 am
stopped it just after 7:00 p.m. when a lot of people are going to try to beat the rush so areas you want to watch out for rain in chicago and detroit, cincinnati could get some too. that's a look and starts to dwindle as it gets here by tomorrow morning, amy. >> thanks so much. also, breaking overnight, donald trump has tapped the first woman for a key position in his administration. south carolina governor nikki haley will be named the next u.s. ambassador to the united nations. even though she had been critical of trump during the campaign the president-elect and his family spend thanksgiving and the trip comes as trump changes course on some of his most controversial campaign promises. he is now backing away from a threat to prosecute hillary clinton saying it would be divisive for the country. trump says he no longer wants to bring back waterboarding and now says he is keeping an open mind about climate change which he had dismissed as a hoax. well, the most expensive navy destroyer ever built has broken down in the panama canal.
8:05 am
just one month after it was commissioned. repairs could take several days. the world's tallest waterslide is shutting down for good. three months after the death of a 10-year-old boy. caleb schwab suffered a fatal neck injury after riding the slide in kansas. it will be demolished once the investigation is completed. and on this day before thanksgiving, heinz is recalling gravy because of a possible health risk. the company is recalling thousands of jars of its pork mislabeled. they contain another flavor with milk and soy which could trigger allergies in some people. the jars have a best buy date of december 2017. and finally in addition to travel woes some of you might be worried about getting into some arguments at thanksgiving dinner this year because of politics. well, guess what, you're not alone. the #howtoavoidpoliticsatdinner has been trending. people are sharing their advice,
8:06 am
your family you have a girlfriend and perhaps the best advice, just say, wrong in response to everything they say. how about that, guys? >> very good suggestions. >> that'll workment all very good suggestions there, amy, thanks very much. a little news that goes "pop." >> happy birthday, my friend. [ cheers and applause ] a little "pop news" and do you guys remember we told you all about a story earlier this month involvin you may recall this image of some motorcycle riding veterans came to his aid when he broke down. that motorcycle was built for the boss by billy joel, it turns out. who would have thunk. joel reportedly told the crowd at his concert monday night, new york's madison square garden bruce borrowed his custom and this is a bike sacred cow bobber and loved that bobber so much billy had one made for him.
8:07 am
billy owns a motorcycle shop on long island, i also did not know that. "pop news" is filled with little nuggets for you today. >> exactly. >> so when joel found out about the breakdown he called springsteen to say it wasn't the bobber, was it, yeah, it was the bobber. bruce told him no worry but as billy told the crowd, something my parents have always said, no good deed goes unpunished. >> how many times did you hear that. >> oh, my gosh. >> two great story, veterans picking him up and on veterans day and built by billie joe. >> and it it was a clunker. >> no, it was not a clunker. had a moment as we all do. >> amen. >> my bobber is having a moment right now. >> let's move on to the next story. >> it's a bike. thank you. thank you. to the man in the back, drinks are on me. next up in "pop news," many people may sing a disney song or
8:08 am
if you grew up in phil collins' household, he turns it into a disney song. lily collins revealed on harry connick's show a song we know and love "you'll be in my heart" from tarzan in 1999 was written for her as a lullaby as a baby and went on, of course, to win an oscar and golden globe and, oh, a grammy for best soundtrack album. just got to say that is -- that's a lullaby. that is a good night song. very sweet. lots of little fun factoids. birthday nuggets for you. >> thank you. robin, in san francisco, get ready for some turkey that help you lose weight. >> what? >> take a look at this map. that is a running route through the city. >> oh, no. >> no joke. no joke. the fourth annual turkey ride

(laughing) you mean pay him back?
8:11 am
multiplied by 13,000 financial advisors. it's a big deal. and it's how edward jones makes sense of investing. people say, let's just get a sandwich or something. "or something"? you don't just graduate from medical school, "or something." and we don't just pull smoked chicken, bake fresh foccacia and hand-slice avocado. there's nothing "or something" about it. as soon as i left the hospital
8:12 am
what about the people i care about? ...including this little girl. and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned
8:13 am
plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. we we invited women to a spa to test a new body wash. you may not feel it, but some body washes can contain cleansers found in dish soap. dove body wash is different. it has only the gentlest cleansers. it just made me feel good. this is dove. know what makes rushing out for black friday sales worth it? diamonds. and the zales black friday sale has lots and lots of diamonds. shop now through black friday for 35 percent off an amazing selection storewide. only at zales, the diamond store. ?

got a lot more dancing coming up. we'll transition now to black friday. >> thank you, thank you very much. >> all kinds of deals on black friday. all kinds of options in stores and online and becky worley is back with her guide on where and when to buy. hey, becky. >> hey, george, serious deal hunters ask the question this time of year the best dees online, in stores, mobile, what. the answer is, yes, all of them. but you have to know where to shop and most importantly when to s ready, set, spend. deals peak tomorrow thanksgiving day. retailers still want you in the door shopping so they offer those crazy low in-store only doorbusters like this 49-inch 4k tv from best buy 250 bucks off at $199 and macy's has this waffle maker normally $29 bucks
8:16 am
markdown and rebate. i love free and i love waffles but the good news there are insanely priced limited quantity online doorbusters too. like these tvs. kohl's has this 55-inch lg tv on sale for $499 plus buyers get $150 kohl's gift card and, this 60-inch vizio for $398. some say it's the lowest on a 60-inch tv ever. check the time it goes live. there are still doorbusters which means limited stock. if you don't want to hassle with standing in line or timing your online purchases perfectly, good news. many sites are still offering low prices on regular inventory. like target, they put the first version of the apple watch on sale for $198. that's 70 bucks off. need a phone? samsung phones and the iphone 7 are selling on contract with
8:17 am
walmart. best buy and target to name just a few. guy, these deals are all picked by me just because they are good prices, no promotional consideration. so go forth and take advantage of these big black friday deals. george. >> becky worley. >> she said it right. >> seal of approval coming up, all the "dancing" finalists got some surprises too. [ cheers and applause ] ? we asked people to write down the things they love to do most on these balloons. travel with my daughter. roller derby. ? now give up half of 'em. do i have to? this is a tough financial choice we could face when we retire. but, if we start saving even just 1% more of our annual income...
8:18 am
? ? get up for black friday. starts thursday, 6pm.
8:19 am
? ? happy holidays from crayola. so when do i start? um, shouldn't it be "spokes-crayon?" can somebody turn on the a/c? i'm melting here. ?air marker spraayer!!!? chemistry, baby! so i just hold this part and spraaaaaay... i'm okay. the holidays just got more surprising.

8:26 am
lucky that sharna was able to create something for me that filled that void and almost completed the story so for me it was almost closure on the whole thing and in a lot of ways i come away -- it's a very rich experience for me to be honest. >> i'll bet it was. >> i'll bet it was and just brilliant. >> say this every time you all are here, love the stars the way you come out. but your partners, these professional dancers really -- [ cheers and applause ] >> before >> before we go let's put up a picture picture of this baby girl. what do you want to say to her this morning. >> i cannot wait to see her. i love you so much, baby girl. >> we'll be right back.

[ cheers and applause ] that's what the judges said and i think part of it is we knew that you didn't have any prior dance experience.
8:34 am
with your girlfriend before. >> i want to make it clear i paid julianne a lot of money to say that but it speaks volumes for the coach and the teacher that i had because i came in with zero experience. i don't think i ever danced sober before i got on the show and to go from that to where we ended up and having a compliment like that from julianne speaks volumes for this woman sitting next to me and every >> sharna, you were injured, came back, all the way to second place, more dancing in the future i hope you'll stay. >> absolutely. i'm not going anywhere. incredible season for me and i love that i got to come back and be able to share those last two weeks with james. it was an amazing, amazing finale. >> fun to watch. >> absolutely. and calvin, you were at the top of your game. you know, pro football hall of famer soon in my opinion, but

"hamilton." >> right. >> "jersey boys" or "cats." >> well --
