In February 2009, Shawn Johnson became a celebrity competitor on ABC's “Dancing with the Stars” (season 8), partnering with the season 6 winner professional dancer Mark Ballas. She is the youngest competitor and winner in the history of the show. In the finale declared the tightest ever in the show's history, Johnson was declared the winner over Gilles Marini by less than 1%. Later she reunited with one of the host of the show Tom Bergeron at the 82nd Scripps National Spelling Bee to talk about her victory. On April 17, 2009, Shawn Johnson made an appearance in the music video, "Do You Love Me," by Ballas Hough Band.
