Nicole Scherzinger of Pussycat Dolls: Dancing with the Stars Winner

Nicole Scherzinger of Pussycat Dolls: Dancing with the Stars Winner. Nicole Scherzinger of Pussycat Dolls lead singer and partner Derek Hough were crowned champions of Dancing with the Stars during the season finale on Tuesday night (May 25).

The results might have seemed predictable to some fans because Scherzinger, a member of the Pussycat Dolls, was the clear front-runner throughout most of the season and Lysacek was a close second.

But Andrews and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy came on strong in Monday's performance round with a season high score of 55 points to tie Scherzinger and Hough for the lead. And all three couples made Tuesday's finale the closest yet after an initial round of Argentine tangos that wowed judges.

"In 10 seasons, judging these three tangos is the hardest job we've ever had," said judge Len Goodman.

So, when host Tom Bergeron announced Scherzinger was the winner, she seemed genuinely surprised, jumping up and down and screaming and hugging Hough.

She blew a kiss to her rival Lysacek and his partner Anna Trebunskaya, and he graciously accepted second place saying he was "totally satisfied with everything we gave."

In its 10th season, "Dancing With the Stars" featured contestants including former astronaut Buzz Aldrin, reality TV star Kate Gosselin and one-time Playboy model Pamela Anderson.

The ABC show averaged 21.6 million viewers a night and competed for the title America's most watched show with juggernaut singing contest "American Idol" on rival Fox.

"This has been the best season of 'Dancing With the Stars, ever," said judge Bruno Tonioli.
