Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough!

On last night’s “DWTS” finale, these two blonde cuties nabbed the coveted Mirrorball Trophy. And they certainly earned it at Monday night’s finals, snagging a perfect score with their fun quickstep and moving the judges to tears with their freestyle. But the competition was tough, and we were left guessing until the bitter end about whether Zendaya and Val Chmerkovskiy would steal the prize.

In case you missed it, check out the video of their awesome quickstep here:

Then, watch their fun “After Party” on "Good Morning America" this morning:

What do you think? Did Kellie and Derek deserve the prize? Or were you rooting for someone else?

The season of sequined fringe is upon us.

The season 16 cast of "Dancing with the Stars" was announced today on "Good Morning America." Yay?

Sorry. I'm sure the latest season of this weirdly fascinating cultural phenomenon will be just as entertaining as the last 15. I'm just feeling a little sad that one Chelsie Hightower isn't involved in the proceedings this time around. Chelsie! We'll miss you!

The happier news is that Aly Raisman, the awesome surprise hero of last year's U.S. Olympic women's gymnastics team, will be competing for the mirrorball trophy. And there are some newbie pros—including "So You Think You Can Dance" alum Lindsay Arnold—on the list who might spice things up a little. Real yay!

Here's the lineup:

Wynonna Judd and Tony Dovolani


D.L. Hughley and Cheryl Burke


Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff

Lisa Vanderpump and new dancer Gleb Savchenko

Andy Dick and new dancer Sharna Burgess

Victor Ortiz and new dancer Lindsay Arnold


Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy


Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas


Ingo Rademache and Kym Johnson

Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough


Dorothy Hamill and Tristan MacManus
