Nicole Scherzinger Wins Dancing With the Stars

Reality-show favorite Dancing With the Stars finished up its 10th season tonight, crowning Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough the dancing champs. The show started with a close race, as the finalists were separated by only three points. Scherzinger and Erin Andrews were tied in the lead with 55 points, while Evan Lysacek tailed them with 52 points. Scherzinger and Hough performed a Tango and a number to "Proud Mary" for the finals, impressing judge Bruno Tonioli, who screamed "Crowning glory!" As usual, previously eliminated contestants were brought back for the finale, including Pamela Anderson, Shannen Doherty, Kate Gosselin, and Buzz Aldrin. Scherzinger racked up the most judges’ points of any contestant ever on the show and won a perfect score of 30 for their final dance.
