'Dancing with the Stars' Crowns a Season 16 Winner
Are you ready to meet your season 16 champions of Dancing with the Stars?
After 10 weeks of grueling competition, singer Kellie Pickler, 26, and partner Derek Hough became the proud owners of a much-coveted mirror ball trophy, narrowly beating out Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman, 16, and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy. The two couples have been leaderboard staples for much the competition.

While at first unable to hear the winning announcement when it was delivered live, Pickler jumped for joy when Hough, a now four-time DWTS champ, informed her of their big achievement.
"This is amazing," said the singer in delighted shock. "Oh my god!"
Rounding out the bottom two, NFL wide receiver Jacoby Jones, 28, took home third place with partner Karina Smirnoff, and Olympic gymnast Alexandra Raisman earned the number four spot in the finale with partner Mark Ballas.
Season 17 of DWTS is set to kick off in the fall of 2013.
