Shumpert and Karagach performed two routines during the show’s finale, one of which was a freestyle dance to a mash-up that included Missy Elliott’s “Lose Control” featuring Ciara and Fat Man Scoop. The pair donned royal blue tracksuits, along with white socks and all-white Air Jordan 1 high-tops for the freestyle dance.

While the basketball star may have been seen as the underdog this season, he ended up wowing everyone with his dancing skills. Last week, his performance to Kanye West’s song, “Dark Fantasy,” which features vocals by his wife, Teyana Taylor, went viral on Twitter.
