New 'Dancing With the Stars' champion crowned Published: May 21, 2014

SPOILER ALERT: This recap reveals the winner of Dancing With the Stars Season 18.

Yahoo TV reports Tuesday night's "Dancing With the Stars" finale had it all: a final fusion dance challenge, a reunion of all 12 of this season's contestants, and, most importantly, the crowning of the show's newest mirrorball champion.

Yes, despite all the fabulous fluff and filler (more on that in a minute), the night was about the final three couples — Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Amy Purdy and Derek Hough, and Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas. At the end of the evening, a winner was crowned — the 18th in the series — and it was an emotional moment for sure. After a final "24 Hour Fusion Challenge" to earn the last of the judges' points, Meryl Davis and pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy were announced as the latest "Dancing With the Stars" mirrorball trophy winners.
