NFL player Donald Driver and partner Peta Murgatroyd won the “Dancing with the Stars” mirrored ball trophy.
Watch Donald and Peta’s freestyle dance, which gave Donald his first 10 from judge Len Goodman.
"Amazing!" Donald shouted when asked how he felt by host Tom Bergeron, who handed the couple the mirror-ball trophy as confetti fell in the ballroom and his former competitors from throughout the season congratulated them.
Finalist Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas, who scored a perfect 60 Monday night, came in second place, with William Levy and Cheryl Burke rounding out the top three.
"It was an amazing experience," William said. "I'm going to miss all of you."
"Thank you so much, Mark," Katherine told her partner. "It's been an absolute dream."
Driver is the third football player to be crowned the “DWTS” winner in the dancing competition series. Pittsburgh Steeler Hines Ward took home the prize in Season 13, while retired NFL player Emmitt Smith won in 2006. In the 2008 season, players Jason Taylor and Warren Sapp were both runners-up as well.
