'Dancing With The Stars' Season 17 Finale: Amber Riley Wins The Mirror Ball Trophy (VIDEO)

Amber Riley took home top honors, and the mirror ball trophy, on the season finale of "Dancing With the Stars." For her professional partner, Derek Hough, it was his fifth overall win -- a series record. Riley was a front-runner all season, starting with the first week when she scored the top score among all of her competitors. In fact, she had or tied for the top score in eight of the eleven weeks of competition, including both nights of this final week.

To wrap up a stellar season, Amber and Derek scored a perfect 30 for their final dance of the competition. Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff came in second, with Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke settling into third place. While fan support may have helped keep Bill Engvall in the competition longer than expected, in the finals the fans were perfectly in line with the judges for all three couples.
