Disney star Zendaya and partner Val Chmerkovskiy finished in second place.
Pickler, who had been a fan favorite during ten weeks of competition, reacted to the announcement by declaring, “Oh my God. This is amazing. Oh my God.”
Pickler and Hough danced a jive for their final ballroom routine Tuesday night. Judge Len Goodman declared afterward, “You’re always clean, you’re precise, you’re sharp, your dancing is always polished. I’m telling you, Kellie, you’re the bee’s knees, my mama’s pajamas, my uncle’s carbuncles. You’re awesome.”
Pickler won after receiving the highest combined total of judges’ scores and viewers’ votes.
