    Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new dancing diva.

    On Tuesday night, "Dancing With the Stars" crowned the winner of season 18 and that lucky lady is now the proud owner of the Mirror Ball Trophy, as well as some serious sequined bragging rights.

    After reliving their most memorable dances from the season, finalists Meryl Davis, Candace Cameron Bure and Amy Purdy endured the prolonged hour and multiple performances from Amber Riley and Iggy Azalea. Plus, the entire season 18 cast returned to dust off their dancing shoes and show that they haven't forgotten their ballroom moves. (You go, Nene Leakes!)

    And now for the winner! Send your tweets of congratulations to...
