Congratulations, Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani! The pair took home the Mirrorball Trophy last night on the Dancing with the Stars All Star finale after a flawless samba and freestyle performance on Monday night. Season 15′s top prize was a long time coming for Rycroft, who was the only competitor in the final three to have never won before (she came in third on season 8). Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough came in second, and General Hospital star Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy placed third. The results played out exactly the same as what our readers predicted, with 47.25% of InStyle.com fans voting for Melissa and Tony. “It was a tough finals, and all the finalists deserved to win because they showed strength, creativity and determination,” pro dancer Karina Smirnoff told InStyle.com. “Tony waited a long time for this moment!” Smirnoff added. “I’m thrilled he got to experience this after so long and with Melissa because they were a perfect match together.” Congrats to the couple! In celebration, watch at the winning pair’s final dance above.
