One point separated first-place Katherine Jenkins from William Levy and Donald Driver at the end of Monday's Dancing With the Stars performances.

Each finalist earned another 30 from one more routine on Tuesday's finale, but the votes were in, and that Mirror Ball already had one name on it.

That name was Donald Driver.

Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd

The Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver was named the winner of the 14th season, making pro Peta Murgatroyd a first-time champion.

"Amazing! This is awesome!" Donald said when asked how he felt. His competitors, not surprisingly, took their defeat in stride, and with class.

William and Cheryl Burke finished in third place. "It was an amazing experience," said the Cuban actor. "I thank you guys for all you have done for us."

"I'm going to miss all of you guys, I love you!"

Jenkins and Mark Ballas were the runners-up.

"Thank you so much, Mark, you've been... I can't put into words how much I've loved this," the ever-gracious Katherine Jenkins said in defeat.

"And thank you to everybody who's had me on the show. It's been an absolute dream, thank you." "Congratulations, my man," Mark Ballas said.

Driver's win makes eight for men in 14 seasons. Donald is also the third NFL pro to win after Emmitt Smith and Hines Ward, last season's champ.

What do you think? Did Donald deserve it?

Heading into Monday's performance finale on Season 14 of Dancing With the Stars, it was anybody's game. Heading into the final results show, it still is!Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd

The most evenly-matched final three in history lived up to that billing, finishing within a single point of each other after six great routines.

Let's revisit them all, shall we?

Head judge Len Goodman said that William Levy's show-opening cha-cha was as good as any he has seen in 14 seasons. He got a 30 for it.

There was no less love for Katherine Jenkins' paso doble, which Len said was "full of tasty tidbits to tickle your taste buds." Crickets. 30.

Donald Driver fell short - by a single point - in merely scraping together 10s from Bruno and Carrie Ann Inaba for his Argentine tango.

All three remaining celebrities are worthy, but there can be only one winner of Dancing with the Stars Season 14, which comes to an end next week.

Katherine Jenkins, William Levy and Donald Driver might well be the least-known trio of finalists in DWTS history - at least heading into the season.

That said, they've made names for themselves over the past few months, and each has been as likable as they are talented out on the parquet.

Who will prevail? Let's size up the last men (and woman) standing:

William Levy and Donald Driver

William Levy

The Cuban Brad Pitt, also described by co-star Jaleel White as a one man Bachelorette party, is the blueprint of who/what does well on DWTS.

He's sexy. He's smooth. He uses his physical attributes well and he's earned the spot in the finale with solid, if unspectacular, dance moves.

William also seems like a humble guy with a great back story that people flock to. No one would be surprised if he hoists the Mirror Ball.

Odds of winning: 2:1.

Donald Driver

Aside from the fact that he's incredibly ripped, you'd never guess Driver were an NFL player. He's courteous, affable, smart and a good family man!

Donald hasn't been on top much this season, but he's been one of the most consistent dancers in the field. He hasn't had one bad night, really.

He's got some name recognition as a Super Bowl champion, is extremely likable, loves every second of the show and is our dark horse pick to win it.

Odds of winning: 3:2.

He's sexy. He's a Cuban soap star. He's got the moves. And he's shirtless.

With all those things going for him, it's a miracle anyone on Dancing With the Stars even shows up to compete against William Levy. But Green Bay Packers star Donald Driver isn't about to hand over the Mirror Ball trophy just yet.

In fact, he might give William a run for his money in an "ab-off."

William Levy's sexy, abs-baring salsa routine with partner Cheryl Burke on Monday's DWTS episode was a sign that the showdown is on, Driver says.

"William knows the ladies love us, but they love him a little bit more because he took his clothes off," Driver told People. "I haven't taken my clothes off yet."

I'm going to pace myself and talk to the wife; if the wife agrees then I'll take it off."

Disney star Roshon Fegan, 20, agrees, saying Levy's display "makes it personal ... I've got my eye on William and whatever his secrets are – working out in the gym, super-duper protein shakes – I'm gonna get me some muscles."

A worthy goal, but for now, it's Donald vs. William in this hunk-a-thon. Which DWTS star do you think is ... well, hunkier? Cast your vote below!
