In the two-hour season finale on Tuesday, Ginger Zee and Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd, and Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas advanced to the final stage of the "Dancing with the Stars" competition, vying to win the judges' and America's votes and be crowned the season 22 champion. In the end, DiMarco and Murgatroyd were named winners and took home the Mirrorball Trophy.

The night kicked off with a high-energy opening number, featuring a reunion of all 12 of this season's couples.

The finale featured performances by Pitbull, Aloe Blacc and Fifth Harmony. Additionally, brothers Maksim and Valentin Chmerkovskiy offered fans a sneak peek of the dance show they will perform across America over the summer: "Maks & Val Live On Tour: Our Way."

In the last element of competition, the couples performed a new routine as part of a "24-Hour Fusion Challenge." The remaining couples fused two contrasting dance styles, and then had less than 24 hours to prepare that dance for judges' points.
