After the encore dances, host Cat Deeley announced DuShaunt "Fik-Shun" Stegall as the male winner of this season. "This means everything to me. I'm so happy, everybody! I couldn't ask for anything more," he said while fighting back tears of happines.
Amy Yakima, who was Fik-Shun's frequent dancing partner on the show, was then declared America's favorite female dancer. She was equally emotional and there were a lot of hugs as the confetti fell.
