Spoiler: Who Won "Dancing With the Stars" Season 12?

Hines Ward and his professional partner Kym Johnson won season 12 of "Dancing With the Stars" Tuesday night. The couple, known for their athleticism and chemistry (sparking rumors of a romance), were favorites going into the finale. "I owe it all to Kym. She's an amazing teacher," Ward said. He's is the second NFL to win the mirror ball trophy; Emmitt Smith won season 3 with Cheryl Burke.

Dancing With the Stars Winner

After Monday's performance night, Hines and Kym shared the lead with Disney star Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas. The couples were tied with 89 points each. Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were a distant third with 84 points. However, the "Cheers" actress and her pro partner managed to move up a spot thanks to a strong final dance and audience vote.

Alley may not have won the title, but she won the battle of the bulge. She lost a reported 38 inches from her frame over the course of the season, which she highlighted by showing the same dress she wore in week one. "My dress is half the size it was when we started… I have a lot more strength and stamina," Alley proudly declared.

I think the right couple did win! The anonymous comment is for the younger couple.It shows who is actually voting. Although Chelsea was great the routines she did were non-conventional. Most people like the tried and true.

ABSOLUTELY THE RIGHT COUPLE WON!! Being a good dancer is more than learning the technicalities. It's showing the emotion and having your joy in your dancing inspire the people watching you to find joy in the performance. Hines learned the technicalities and in the rest he was unbeatable and got better every week. The male performers have it a little tougher because the role of the man traditionally is to "lead" the dance which, as the judges noted, Hines did flawlessly. The right couple won - and STEELER NATION VOTED!!!

It came down to two; Hines and Kym and Chelsea and Mark. What's that you say? Chelsea and Mark got robbed? They sure did. Hines and Chelsea consistently scored the highest marks. Kirstie had courage and did remarkably well, but should have been third. Unfortunately the final votes came down to fan bases. I was all for Kirstie but Maks has such as massive ego and she too didn't seem to be such a gracious "loser." Chelsea and Mark are to be commended. They know they were robbed. All in all, if not Chelsea then yes, Hines.

The right couple won. I wanted Kirstie to win, and I liked her freestyle and all. But Kim and Hines freestyle was the best of the night and base of the 3 freestyles. They deserved to win.

I think they all deserved trophies this year the entire group. What sweet loving americans we are instead of being happy for someone who has struggled for years in the public eye with a weight problem so instead of being happy for her and praising her to encourage her not just because of looking better but because of imroving her health. I challenge all of those posting what a fat butt Keirstie is and all the negativeness about her. You put on a dress like is required in ballroom dancing and post it. No fix up shops. We wonder why our country is falling apart NEGATIVE NEGATIVE NEGATIVE. I'm going to assume these nasty postings are from teenagers who are just beginning to grow up. I commend her for excepting the offer and completing it to the end. Thanks for taking the time out of your life to entertain us.Everyone wins when we share positive comments, constructive critacism is needed so we can improve. Silly spending my time here over an enjoyable show that entertains us after a hard days work but when Americans bash people they dont even know. Now I can sleep better tonight. LOL There is only one judge on this earth all others simply shows their character. God Bless Congrats Hines.
