The final three celebrities gave it one last dance for judges on Tuesday night's "Dancing With The Stars" finale, but it was Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger who emerged victorious, narrowly edging out the other two competitors - ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews, and Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek - to win the show's coveted Mirror Ball Trophy.

During the finale, the three competitors danced the Tango in the penultimate elimination. Andrews was ousted first, leaving Scherzinger to face off against Lysacek in one final dance-off before being crowned champion.

Scherzinger and partner Derek Hough scored a perfect 30, while Lysacek and partner Anna Trebunskaya landed a 28.

Fans of the show were allowed to vote up to five times after Monday night's performances, and those scores were combined with the scores given by the show's judges Tuesday night to determine the season ten winner.

Going into the finale Andrews and Scherzinger were tied for first place with 55 points each and Lysacek trailing by just three.
