Mark Ballas could get a pretty special 30th birthday present!

The Dancing with the Stars pro and partner Paige VanZant are among the three couples who could take home season 22's coveted Mirrorball trophy when the results of Monday's performance finale are announced on Tuesday night.

Whether tonight proves a third-time charm for Ballas (who took home the trophy in seasons 6 and 8) remains to be seen – but the pro's track record shows that he has plenty to celebrate regardless.

Below, in honor of his 30th birthday, we run down the highlights of Ballas' "Perfect 30" performances.

Dancing with the Stars Season 16 Winner Is Kellie Pickler!

Originally posted 05/21/2013 09:30PM

On Tuesday, Dancing with the Stars named its season 16 champions.

At the end of Monday night's episode, Zendaya and an injured Val Chmerkovskiy received perfect 30s for both of their full-length routines, and then tacked on an additional five points to their score for winning the cha cha relay.

But only one point below the highest scoring pair were Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough, who earned perfect 30s for their routines, which included a dramatic freestyle number that had viewers in tears. They came in second place during the cha cha relay, and scored four extra points.

Below them were Alexandra Raisman and partner Mark Ballas, followed by Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff.

And the winners are Kellie and Derek!

Dancing with the Stars: Which Couple Deserved to Win?

Originally posted 05/21/2013 07:15PM

The final four Dancing with the Stars contestants – Jacoby Jones, Kellie Pickler, Alexandra Raisman and Zendaya – and their pro partners have overcome injuries and potential eliminations to make it all the way to the season 16 finale. But only one couple can take home the tantalizingly close mirror-ball trophy.

Pickler's strong performances throughout the season were magnified Monday night, when she and Derek Hough earned a perfect 30 score for a freestyle dance judge Carrie Ann Inaba called "one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen." Pickler later admitted "I let all of my walls down" for the fearless show-stopper.

NFL player Jones and pro partner Karina Smirnoff did not have the most stellar performances, getting flak from the judges for an imperfect jive, and later for a super-sized freestyle dance. But Inaba nevertheless dubbed the wide receiver the "number one entertainer of season 16," in the semifinals the previous week.

Dancing with the Stars Pro Val Chmerkovskiy: 'Thank God the Blood Subsided'

Originally posted 05/21/2013 01:30PM

Zendaya's elbow went flying, and Val Chmerkovskiy's night was suddenly in jeopardy.

But Chmerkovskiy, 27, being the pro that he is, soldiered on after the accident in dress rehearsal for Monday's Dancing with the Stars left him with a deep gash over his right eye that almost sent him straight to the hospital before the first night of the season 16 finale.

"That's what I was worried about," he told PEOPLE after the show. "It's going to keep pouring, pouring, pouring, and I'm going to need stitches. If I was going to have to go get stitches, then I wouldn't have time to make it back. So thank God the blood subsided."

Dancing with the Stars: Final Four Compete for Mirror-Ball Trophy

Originally posted 05/20/2013 10:30PM

The final four couples performed three routines each on Monday's Dancing with the Stars. By the end of the night, one pair were in the lead with a perfect score for all three dances.

However, the episode kicked off with an imperfect – though energetic – jive.

Karina Smirnoff and partner Jacoby Jones – who judge Carrie Ann Inaba previously called "the number one entertainer of season 16" – were told by judge Len Goodman that they showed improvement, but that "you got excited at times and lost it."
