After 11 strenuous weeks of competition, the winner of “Dancing With the Stars” was announced last night in part two of the season finale. Host Brooke Burke posted a photo with the winning couple, congratulating them on well-deserved win.

“Glee” star Amber Riley and her partner, Derek Hough, stomped out the remaining competitors, Corbin Bleu and Jack Osbourne (comedian Bill Engvall was eliminated in part one of the finale), with a combination of fan votes and two perfect scores for their Charleston and Freestyle. Amber was a favorite of both fans and judges from the get-go because of her positive attitude, passionate and emotive performances, and continuously improving technical skills.

The finale also featured performances by Lady Antebellum, Enrique Iglesias, who sang his new single “Heart Attack,” and Norwegian comedy sensation “Ylvis,” who performed their viral hit "The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)."

Congratulations to Amber and Derek, and to all of the contestants on “Dancing With the Stars,” for a spectacularly entertaining season!
