The coveted Mirrorball trophy has a new owner.

Host of the country radio Bobby Bones and professional Sharna Burgess were crowned the winners of Season 27 of "Dancing With the Stars", beating fellow model Alexis Ren (with pro Alan Bersten), "Harry Potter" star Evanna Lynch (with the pro Keo Motsepe) and Disney The star of the channel Milo Manheim (with pro Witney Carson).

"Thanks to the people and thanks to Sharna, who made all this possible," Bones said emotionally, after co-host Tom Bergeron named him the winner.

The last four were challenged to learn two dances in the week of Thanksgiving, the first was a dance style that the famous participants performed earlier in the season and the second a new freestyle.

This is what happened during the end:

Repeat dances

Ren started the competition with another dose of showmance with his partner Bersten. During a pre-recorded package before his performance, Ren declared that he "really found love" and "never felt better".

The chemistry of the couple was evident in his Argentine tango to "Swan Lake" by Ray Chew Live. Ren and Bersten scored 27 of 30, and judge Bruno Tonioli added that "the connection works" in the routine.

Next, Bones pulled out his MC Hammer pants for another chance at the cha-cha with Burgess. Before going to the dance floor to "U Can & # 39; t Touch This", the duo reflected on "How do we get here?"

Despite not having any dance experience, the personality of the radio gave him credit to "appear and dedicate hours" to his success in the program. He scored 24 out of 30 in his fun routine that made the judges laugh.

Lynch, the clear favorite after the shocking start to the semifinals of Juan Pablo Di Pace, continued to show his growth in the competition with the remodeling of his Halloween tango.

Dancing with Rihanna's "Disturbia", the "Harry Potter" student and Motsepe dominated the ballroom with a disturbingly good routine, getting a perfect 30 of 30. It was the third consecutive week of Lynch getting a perfect score.

As if that was not enough, his "Potter" co-star Emma Watson surprised Lynch with a special video message: "You're in the final, I'm very proud of you. I do not know where those dance skills come from, but You are amazing, we are very proud of you, we love you, we support you. "

Next, Manheim gave his Charleston another chance to "Live in New York City," this time with a live performance by Robin Thicke. He brought his game A with lots of energy and twists from Charleston, worth 30 out of 30.

Inaba doubled his belief that the Disney star was the person he had to beat, which would have turned the 17-year-old into the youngest competitor in the history of "DWTS" to win the Mirrorball trophy.

Freestyle dances

Ren gave it all in a freestyle dance with a live performance of Avril Lavigne's new single, "Head Above Water." His dramatic routine full of emotion also won 30 out of 30.

The couple reflected on their trip together after their last dance together. "Thank you very much, this has been the best experience of my life," said Ren as he hugged Bersten. (Awww)

Bones' hard work finally paid off in the freestyle round, when he got his first perfect score of the entire season in what could not have been a better time.

The radio presenter let his personality, and his skills with flossing, shine in a thematic routine of "The Best Show" in Panic! at the "The Greatest Show" nightclub. At one point, former participant DeMarcus Ware lifted Bones over his head as if he were lifting weights.

"You've always been the champion of people, and tonight you've become my champion," judge Len Goodman applauded, while Tonioli added: "That was the perfect freestyle for a free spirit."

Manheim did everything possible for his final routine with many accessories, including numerous umbrellas, intricate footwork and "Ain & # 39; t No Sunshine" by Bill Withers. He and Carson scored 30 of 30, their second perfect score of the night.

"My mind is hallucinating right now, I do not think we've ever seen a freestyle with so much content," Inaba said.

Lynch also finished the competition on a high note with another perfect score. Set in "It's Oh So Quiet" by Bjork, her dance moves did everything possible in a fascinating performance that seriously impressed the judges.

Goodman called his last routine the "cherry on the cake," adding that "he showed each part of his dance beautifully."

In the end, it was Bones who raised the trophy.
