Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson take home coveted mirrorball trophy
On Tuesday's season 19 finale, Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson were crowned the "Dancing with the Stars" champions on the ABC Television Network.
The show was packed with surprises and kicked off with a high-energy all-cast performance featuring a reunion of all 13 of this season's couples, the judges and hosts. Then, as decided on by a Twitter vote, one of the four finalists performed a freestyle dance as an encore.
With less than 24 hours to prepare, the three remaining couples fused two contrasting dance styles they've performed this season into a new routine they performed for judges' points. At the end of the night Tuesday, the public vote from Monday night was combined with the judges' scores from both nights to crown the season 19 champion.
