Dancing With the Stars Season 18 Winner

Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy Win Dancing With the Stars!

Dancing With the Stars crowned Olympic ice dancer Meryl Davis and her pro partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, its Mirror Ball winners last night during the celebrity-filled finale for its 18th season. The twosome secured their win when they earned another perfect score (30) with their foxtrot/cha-cha fusion for their final dance. The win was a special one for Maks, who, despite being one of the most recognizable and popular pro dancers on the show, had never won a Mirror Ball before. "It's just plastic, but it means so much," he said upon winning. "And to [win] it with Meryl is a dream come true. There's a reason it didn't happen before. It's because I was meant to do it with her."

The runner-up spot went to paralympian Amy Purdy and her pro partner, Derek Hough. The two also earned a perfect score for their final dance but were just one point shy of Meryl and Maks's perfect combined score of 90. Meanwhile, the third-place spot went to former Full House star Candace Cameron Bure and her pro partner, Mark Ballas.
