Kellie Pickler Wins Dancing With The Stars

It's been a remarkable week for Country Music on major TV networks as last Thursday Kree Harrison was the runner-up on American Idol, Sunday found Trace Adkins winning American Idol while last night Kellie Pickler took home the Mirrorball Trophy as the latest celeb -- and first Country artist -- to win.

The fans came through for Kellie Pickler on ABC's Dancing With The Stars, as the Country Music star and her professional dance partner Derek Hough were awarded the mirror ball trophy and the title of Dancing With The Stars Season 16 champions on last night's highly-anticipated two-hour season finale.  Pickler was shocked and at a loss for words as host Tom Bergeronannounced her as the season's winner, exclaiming "This is amazing!  Oh my God!"

Kellie Pickler is the first Country singer to win Dancing With The Stars as well as the first to make it to the finals.  DerekHough is the show's first professional dancer to win the competition four times, and is the only pro to win the competition more than twice.  His sister, Country singer and former DWTS pro Julianne Hough (to whom Len Goodman compared Pickler in her final competitive routine) has won the competition twice, as have Cheryl Burke, Mark Ballas, and Kym Johnson.

Finishing behind Pickler were Zendaya in second place, Jacoby Jones in third, and Aly Raisman in fourth.  The finale also included a performance by Country Music legend and Season 16 contestant Wynonna Judd, who sang "I Want to Know What Love Is."
