'Dancing with the Stars' Final Results: Donald Driver Defeats the Frontrunners


The NFL star takes the mirrorball trophy, Katherine Jenkins finishes in second place, and William Levy gets the second runner-up spot.

"Dancing with the Stars" has crowned Donald Driver and his pro partner Peta Murgatroyd as the champions of season 14. The NFL wide receiver beat out frontrunners Katherine Jenkins and William Levy to snatch the mirrorball trophy in the Tuesday, May 22 finale.

Before the final results were announced, the three pairs performed the "24 Hour Challenge" dance. William and Cheryl Burke danced the salsa, Katherine and Mark Ballas performed a jive, while Donald and Peta danced the cha-cha. Each pair earned 30 points from the judges.

After the scores were combined with audience's votes, it was revealed that Donald nabbed the first place. "This is awesome," so the Green Bay Packers star said when asked how he felt about his win.

Katherine, who set the bar high since early of the season, placed second. She thanked her partner Mark and all of her fans before stating, "It's been an absolute dream." Meanwhile, William who finished third told the crowd, "I thank you guys for all you have done for us."

Also that night, the eliminated contestants including Sherri Shepherd, Jaleel White and Maria Menounos returned to the dance floor. Taking the stage as musical guests were "American Idol" alum Kelly Clarkson and Gladys Knight, who was eliminated earlier on "DWTS" this season.
