It was a year marred by painful injuries (bummer about your groin, Alfonso Ribeiro!) and awkward wardrobe malfunctions (pink boas will never mean the same again to Betsey Johnson), but the 19th season finale of Dancing with the Stars Tuesday was no less dramatic.

Ribeiro, who has said he waited 10 years for a moment like this, became the latest amateur to take home the mirror ball trophy. "I cannot believe this!" he told host Tom Bergeron. "I don't even know what to say! These are happy tears!"

"He deserves this so much," added his partner, Witney Carson. "He's one of the most hard-working people I know."

Betsey Johnson Was Sent Home on Dancing with the Stars
