Donald Driver Wins DWTS

Donald Driver has done it again! The Super Bowl champion who helped his team win the title in 2011 beat out amazing dancers like Katherine Jenkins and William Levy in what has been deemed the most competitive season of Dancing With The Stars.

In a night where everybody danced with nothing but perfection, the NFL star and his pro partner Peta Murgatroyd dazzled with another spectacular cha-cha-cha. "Amazing!" said the "Mirror Ball" winner as he was awarded the trophy.

Other hightlights of the night included all twelve of the stars being brought back for another dance. There was also an incredible performance by award winning singer Kelly Clarkson followed by the beautiful “Empress of Soul,” Gladys Knight, taking everybody home with "The Way We Were."

As for the finalists, they ruled with flawless routines each landing perfect scores. William and Cheryl heated up the ballroom floor with one last salsa. Katherine and Mark showed off their fancy footwork with the Jive. But the champ was the one to leave the biggest impression in a tight battle that any of the stars could have won.

The trophy winner accredits his win to the country freestyle routine performed on Monday evening. Which I have to agree, Donald's freestyle dance was out of this world and definitely took him over the top. What do you think?
