(Newser) – Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough, frontrunners from the start, were crowned Dancing With the Stars champs last night. “I feel like I just won a Grammy," Scherzinger said. "A dancing Grammy!" The pair had earned a perfect score for their final dance, a jive (watch it in the gallery). Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek came in second, with Erin Andrews rounding out the top three, the AP reports.

The finalists were joined by the rest of the season’s contestants, including Kate Gosselin, who reprised her crazy “Paparazzi” dance then tore off her dress and shook it to “I Will Survive” in a miniskirt. Now that this season is over, at least one “star” is already lining up for the next: Disgraced duchess Sarah Ferguson, who apparently needs the money, tells Inside Edition she “would quite like to go on Dancing With the Stars.”
