Congratulations to Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy! After being strong contenders all season long, Meryl and Maks finished in spectacular fashion, getting perfect scores on their last three dances, and it was enough to be crowned the new champs in the Dancing with the Stars season 18 finale.
Meryl edged out Amy Purdy for the final honor, as Candace Cameron Bure had been awarded third place just moments earlier. After the fusion dances, Amy had been right behind Meryl with 89 points on her final dances, but the fan votes proved enough to put Meryl and Maks over the top.
Congrats again to our new winners! See Meryl and Maks's final dance below:
