Ariana Grande performed her hit "Problem" on the final Dancing With the Stars results show of the season last night, but Iggy Azalea was strangely absent.

Even though she was in the building and performed earlier. WTH?

Iggy took the stage before Ariana to perform her hit song “Fancy”, but she was having technical difficulties, as she made clear in an awkward first few seconds.

Both Azalea and Charli XCX did bring it home in the end, but during Ariana Grande's performance, Iggy and her guest verse were mysteriously absent.

Could she have been unable to perform due to the technical issues? Are they feuding? Was she not slated to perform with Ariana last night from the start?

That seems hard to believe, as the trio just performed together at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, and "Problem" is may be the hottest song of the year.

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:

James Maslow fans are fuming over last night's Dancing With the Stars results show, claiming the vote tallies that led to the singer's departure are bogus.

Maslow got the chop despite not finishing with the lowest score from the judges. In fact, he bested Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas by several points.

Some fans are crying foul, citing a supposed glitch in fan voting might have cost James and his partner Peta Murgatroyd votes. See screen grab below:

Dancing With the Stars Rigged?

Facebook voting, in particular, has drawn the ire of fans.

Claiming votes for James and Peta were instead counted for Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, the Big Time Rush rocker's supporters are irate.

But a rep for ABC claims that despite this automated Facebook response, the votes were all counted and counted correctly. No conspiracies here.

According to TMZ, the show rep blew off the apparent voting error as a "caching anomaly" that only affected a small amount of users Monday night.

Monday's part one of the Dancing with the Stars Season 18 finale saw the final four contestants give it their all in their quest for the Mirror Ball trophy tonight.

The big question heading in? Would the fall that left Mark Ballas injured keep him out of the competition, and end Candace Cameron-Bure's chances?

The other, bigger question? Who would advance to night two of the finals, and which contestant would be eliminated, leaving just three celebs standing?

Let's take a look at all the performances and scores on Dancing with the Stars' Season 18 finale and see who stands the best chance of winning ...

Mark Ballas was injured during rehearsals for Dancing With the Stars yesterday, leaving his availability for this evening's season finale in serious jeopardy.

Ballas crashed to the floor while rehearsing a freestyle routine with celebrity partner Candace Cameron Bure, a show spokesperson has confirmed:

"Mark was seriously injured during camera blocking. His shoulder popped out during a lift and he was taken by ambulance to the hospital where he was treated and released."

"It's unclear whether or not he'll be able to perform on Monday's show."

The injury occurred at the CBS studio where he and Bure were working on complex maneuver that involved Ballas lifting the actress onto his shoulders.

Fellow pro dancers Derek Hough and Cheryl Burke were at the studio at the time of the injury, immediately rushing to Ballas' side on the ballroom floor.

Charlie White was eliminated on the Dancing with the Stars results show Monday night, but that's not why the Olympic ice dancing champion is upset.

Well, he is upset, as in disappointed. But he's not pleased with the way it went down, being pitted against longtime partner Meryl Davis in the waning moments.

While he said he wasn't rooting for Meryl to get the boot - "No, not at all!" Charlie insists - he's "not happy" with producers putting them in the bottom two.

"The thing is, you don't know if it's always the bottom two," he said. "Honestly to me, that felt contrived. I wasn't happy they pitted me against Meryl like that."

"I think our love triumphs over what makes for an interesting moment. I love that girl. We have been through 27 years and won an Olympic gold medal."

Aww. An early frontrunner to win the Mirror Ball trophy this spring, White admitted he was sad that he didn't make the top four and next week's finale.
