As for Katherine Jenkins, the Welsh-born singer came in second place and Latin heartthrob William Levy came in third place. Cheryl Burke, William's partner, gave props to all the competitors. "This has been the most competitive season ever," she said. "The top six of this show could easily have won any other season."

As for the champs' thoughts on winning, well, let's just say he called it a miracle. According to USA Today, Donald said, "I would have to say it was a miracle. We did what we had to do on the floor, and we knew we had to leave it up to the judges and the fans. The fans made the decision, and the fans loved our freestyle last night. I think the freestyle put us on top, and after that, there was no looking back."
