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:

There once was a time when future heart throbs were a little dorky, would-be supermodels a tad awkward, and even the Kardashians were just regular kids.

Heck, even Justin Bieber was a kid once ... instead of a punk a-- kid.

Ever wonder what your favorite stars (and Kim Kardashian for that matter) looked like long before they became the people that dominated your Facebook feed?

Wonder no longer, THGers. We've got you covered and then some!

Some aged better than others, and some certainly looked more like their adult selves from a very early stage, but all were pretty darn adorable.

On Dancing With The Stars, being a double amputee might be seen as a disadvantage.

But Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy isn't letting it slow her down.

Amy tells TMZ that she has different feet for different types of dances. Forget wood or cumbersome mechanics, Amy's special dancing feet include ankles that work on hydraulics.

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.

You can see one of her pairs of specially made feet in action when you watch Dancing With the Stars online. See Monday's performances right here:

They are still Dancing with the Stars.

But Julianne Hough and Derek Hough will soon be shaking and jiving in a different television venture.

The beautiful siblings will team up in the near future for a series with Starz that focuses on the world of international competitive ballroom dancing, specifically an event in Blackpoll, England.

She's been criticized for re-joining the cast of Dancing With the Stars, among many other things (Tripp's f-bomb) lately, but Derek Hough's got her back.

The three-time pro champion supports Bristol Palin - who said her return to the show is God's plan - for competing on DWTS even if it means bad press.

"Unfortunately with the Palin drama and crazy entertainment it's brought to the United States, I suppose it comes with the territory," Hough told E!

"But I think," he continued, "Good for her. Good for her to put herself out there because it's really easy to kind of hibernate and just to disappear."

"She's saying, 'I'm going to do my thing and if you don't like it, then fine!'"

Calling DWTS a "fun gig," Bristol also said, "You guys, the media, you will all talk about me whether I'm in my little Alaska life or doing this."

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who made news Friday for her non-subtle dining at Chick-fil-A, has vocally defended her daughter as well.

Thirteen former contestants will compete on the first edition of Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars. Their partners will be revealed August 13.

What do you think of Bristol Palin returning to DWTS?
