Kellie Pickler was named the winner of Dancing With the Stars last night (May 21) during the show’s season 16 finale. She, along with professional dance partner Derek Hough, beat out Disney star Zendaya and Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones for the mirror ball trophy.

Scoring is based half on judges scores and half on viewer votes.

Former Dancing contestant Wynonna, who was eliminated early this season, returned to perform on last night’s finale.

Pickler is the second country star to take home a major reality show win this week. Sunday night Trace Adkins was crowned champion of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.
