Dancing With The Stars has a brand new champion

With a three-hour finale, DWTS definitely had a lot of time to fill. The show kicked off the night by showcasing the final five’s best numbers over the course of the season. From Xochitl and Val’s Coco-themed performance on Disney Night to Ariana and Pasha’s Britney Spears-inspired routine on Music Video Night, it was fun to relive all the best routines.

Although the judges and audience members alike loved the final five’s routines, only one couple could go home with the Mirrorball Trophy.

Early polls showed Xochitl Gomez and Val Chmerkovskiy coming in first place with Alyson Hannigan and Sasha Farber coming in fifth. Did those polls hold up?
