After 10 weeks of highly entertaining performances and phenomenal dancing, Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd, Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas and William Levy & Cheryl Burke competed for the final time on the DANCING WITH THE STARS Results show last night.
In the two-hour Season Finale, the excitement began with a stunning opening number with the entire cast and the Troupe. Tuesday night, all of this season's eliminated couples returned to the ballroom to perform some of the most memorable routines, as well as a few new surprises, including a special musical performance from Grammy® Award-winning Gladys Knight. Grammy® Award-winning superstar Kelly Clarkson also lit up the ballroom singing a medley of her hit songs "Dark Side" and "Stronger," accompanied by Kym Johnson, Tony Dovolani, Anna Trebunskaya, Tristan MacManus and the Troupe. And in the final element of the competition, the three finalists performed a new routine in the "24 Hour Challenge" - in which they had 24 hours to pair their dance style of choice to music given to them after Monday night's show. The routine was scored out of 30 and rounded out the judges' scores across both nights.
In the end, it was Donald Driver and his partner Peta Murgatroyd who took home the mirror ball trophy, with Katerine Jenkins and Mark Ballas taking second place!
The winning couple visited GOOD MORNING AMERICA this morning and danced the Cha-Cha for the live audience. Watch the performance below!
