Driver and his partner, Peta Murgatroyd (pictured), were ecstatic when they received the dance honor.  As the jubilant couple got rained on by a shower of confetti, Driver yelled, “Amazing, this is awesome!”  The 37-year-old also pumped his fists in the air, fell to the floor, and rolled around in disbelief.

Driver and Murgatroyd beat out finalists Telenovela star William Levy, who placed third, and classical music singer Katherine Jenkins, a season-long standout.

Murgatroyd was overjoyed that this was her first win since she joined the competition.  Ironically, last year, when the pro-dancer partnered with NBA’s Metta World Peace, they were the first couple to be given the boot.

The rigorous 12-week schedule, which has also oftentimes been referred to as grueling, was certainly not evident in Driver’s performances. He maintained a high level of charisma and athletic prowess in all of his displays of dance, according to many of the show’s critics.

“You really have the strategy of a champion,” judge Bruno Tonioli complimented him Tuesday. “Your performances are always inspired, and you peaked at exactly the right time.”
