It was a tight race but Kellie Pickler overcame it all to be crowned the new Dancing With The Stars winner. In the dance competitions 16th season the stars were tasked with the usual three rounds of dancing: a judge’s pick dance, a cha-cha relay round as well as the supersized freestyle. Pickler won judges and TV audiences over with her graceful style and high-jumping jives with partner and professional dancer Derek Hough.

The singer turned dancer looked stunned when host Tom Bergeron announced that she and partner Hough were the winners.

“Oh my god,” as Bergeron congratulated her,  “this is amazing,” she said.

“I’m just going to miss spending time with Derek, he’s so fun – we’ve had so many great memories together,” she continued. Derek also felt the same way adding:

“We have, a lot of great memories.”

The pair earned two sets of perfect scores Monday night and another on Tuesday. Judges’ scores combined with viewer votes determine the winner.
