For the three remaining Dancing With the Stars competitors, it all came down to one night. One final Dancing With the Stars results show, for all the marbles.

With the guts, the glitter and the glory on the line, and with James Maslow ousted Monday, only Meryl Davis, Amy Purdy and Candace Cameron Bure remained.

Candace came in as the big underdog, but with huge fan support, with Amy as the dark horse candidate to upend Meryl, the odds-on favorite to win.

So how did the Dancing With the Stars results shake out? Would Davis give Maksim Chmerkovskiy is first title in 14 tries, or would there be a surprise?

Let's find out who hoisted the Mirror Ball in Season 18 ...

Who Who Dancing With the Stars?
A Dancing With the Stars champion is crowned for Season 18. Who won it all??

For their last routine, Amy and Derek were told to get in touch with their inner mad scientist and combine an Argentine tango with a cha-cha. They scored 30/30.

Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas, for a Frankenstein’s monster of a dance, had to blend a quickstep and a samba. It went fairly well, earning 27/30.

Meryl Davis and Maks Chmerkovskiy had to produce the combination of a Foxtrot with a cha-cha, but came through with flying colors, tallying 30/30

Then at long, long last it was time for the results:

Amy Purdy made an unbelievable comeback on Monday’s Dancing with the Stars, notching a perfect score after leaving with a back injury last week.

The paralympian was rushed to the hospital during last week’s Dancing with the Stars results show, and was later diagnosed with a “rib out of place.”

Amy Purdy was cleared to dance the next week, though, and while expectations for last night's return were uncertain, her Argentine tango was amazing:

Even judge Abby Lee Miller of Dance Moms infamy called Derek Hough’s choreography “brilliant,” and told Purdy, “Amy, my students are here this evening."

"And I better never ever, ever hear ‘I’m too tired.”

“Look at this woman!” she declared. “Amazing.”

Bruno Tonioli similarly called Purdy “Amazing Amy,” and said the performance was “perfection ... totally spell-binding. I feel like I’m in a trance."

Carrie Ann Inaba added, “I swear I felt like I stopped breathing three times," while Len Goodman said, “If I’m dreaming, don’t wake me up. That was terrific.”

Danica McKellar was eliminated last night, while Purdy, James Maslow, Charlie White, Candace Cameron Bure and Meryl Davis advanced to the semifinals.

Who do you want to win the Mirror Ball title?

Amy Purdy remains alive and well on Dancing with the Stars Season 18.

Mostly well, that is.

The impressive contestant was actually hospitalized due to back pain last night, telling Erin Andrews backstage that it was “hard to breathe” because her back just “seized up.”

Monday evening's Dancing with the Stars results saw NeNe Leakes eliminated, having turned in the lowest score of the seven remaining competitors.

Amy Purdy, meanwhile, was hospitalized after a rumba to a slowed down rendition of "Light My Fire" by The Doors that earned 36 out of 40 points.

"You lit my fire! First out, first class," Len Goodman told her, while guest judge Ricky Martin gushed, "You were stunning. You made me feel a lot of things."

Purdy felt mostly pain. She was admitted to hospital shortly after her performance with a shoulder injury and was unable to perform the group routine.

The athlete's efforts in the dress rehearsal dance was used to judge the routine, fittingly performed to "Livin La Vida Loca," with Amy unable to participate.

The team had well wishes for Purdy, who they missed during the number, but she nailed her dress rehearsal performance, which was taken into account.

Southern California Prosthetics has sent her several pairs to try, including ones she can wear with high heels! No matter what kind of feet she's rocking, her dancing is pretty amazing.
