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."

Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson: Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sarah Palin & More Speak Out

Originally posted 12/19/2013 04:00PM

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has made a statement of support for Phil Robertson, who was suspended from A&E Network's Duck Dynasty for making anti-gay comments.

Jindal claimed that Robertson, 67, was simply exercising his freedom of speech in the interview for GQ in which Robertson likened homosexuality to bestiality.

"But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views. In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment.

"It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended," Jindal added.
