Makism Chmerkovskiy, Meryl Davis

Seven years after coming thisclose to a win with Mel B. on Dancing with the Stars, Maksim Chmerkovskiy finally has his Mirrorball trophy. His victory with Meryl Davis on Tuesday seemed to be a foregone conclusion, or at least the hot pick, since the cast announcement, but Chmerkovskiy says he had no expectations when he decided to return to the show after taking two seasons off.

Dancing's Derek Hough: Amy's Journey Is the Best Victory

Derek Hough

Hi guys,

Thanks so much for your messages!

Second place! Woohoo! Who would've thought that when I was sitting at a table and saw Amy walk through the door for the first time? Seeing her walk in with these prosthetic legs and not having any idea what at all would be possible, and now to think about what we've achieved and what we've created — that really is amazing.

I had a gut feeling that Maks and Meryl were going to take it, and I said that to Amy, so we knew. Based on the packages and the tone and the way they put everything together, I had a feeling they ...

It's finally here! The conclusion of Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars is upon us, and while the winner won't be crowned until Tuesday night, the finale will air over two nights, stretched out as much as a Meryl Davis split.

Why I Fell Head Over Heels for Dancing with the Stars

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis

It only took 18 seasons (and nearly a decade) for me to tune in to even a minute of ABC's Dancing With the Stars. I'll admit that nostalgia for some of my cherished '90s TV stars Candace Cameron Bure and Danica McKellar, combined with a small crush on boy-bander James Maslow, piqued my interest. But halfway through that first episode, I knew right away that I was hooked.

What started as unexpected enjoyment has quickly evolved into a mild obsession. I get mad when a team's score seems unjust or excited when a duo nails their performance. I get nervous when one of my favorites is deemed "unsafe." I can't get enough of the behind-the-scenes action, the fun banter and watching the relationships develop between the stars and their pros.
