Glee's Amber Riley Fights Through the Pain to Win Dancing With the Stars

Even her battered knees couldn't stop her from waltzing away with the trophy. Amber Riley and her pro partner, Derek Hough, beat out Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff to win Season 17 of Dancing With the Stars Tuesday night. "I definitely feel beaten down right now," Riley says with a laugh. The Glee star, 27, who has been plagued with knee injuries all season, is looking forward to giving her whole body a rest — probably in Hawaii. "I've always wanted to go there," she says.

Carrie Ann Inaba on the DWTS Finale: "It's Almost Like There Are Two Competitions Going On"

Who will win Season 17 of Dancing with the Stars? That's the big question heading in to the two-part finale, which begins tonight at 8/7c on ABC.

Competing tonight will be Bill Engvall and Emma SlaterJack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke,Derek Hough and Amber Riley, and Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff. One of the four couples will be eliminated at the end of tonight's show, and the other three will perform a final routine tomorrow night before the winner is crowned.

"I think we have two completely different types of competitors," judge Carrie Ann Inaba told TVGuide.com ahead of Monday's show. "We have Corbin and Amber, who are in one class. And then you have Jack and Bill, who are totally of a different class. I think it's really interesting the way the fans have voted. I think people are really a fan of the whole idea of somebody who doesn't know how to dance really making the transformation, which is what Jack and Bill fall into."
