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:

After back-to-back weeks at the top, Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy fell to the bottom of the heap on Dancing with the Stars Monday night.

Although they were spared elimination on the Dancing with the Stars results show (and weren't even in the bottom three) Maks was not happy about it.

Specifically, he was put off by guest judge Abby Lee Miller.

Maks put together a rumba about a dysfunctional relationship (fittingly), and while the moves were excellent, it felt more like a contemporary routine.

Carrie Ann Inaba felt there was energy in every move, but there wasn't enough rumba content, while Abby felt that Meryl's footwork needed ... work.

A chorus of boos rained down from the audience.

After receiving their lowest score of the night from Abby and falling behind Amy Purdy's perfect 10s, Maks said "I really don't care for anything she has to say."

BURRRRN. So much for being a big "teddy bear."

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Dancing with the Stars feuds have gone hand in hand over the years, but in this case, most fans are likely to be on his side.

The combustible pro is none too pleased at Julianne Hough, who guest judged the ABC hit series this week and hinted that he phoned in his performance.

"You can accuse me of a lot of things," said Maksim.

"You can't accuse me of not working hard enough."

Maks' comments came in response to Hough's accusation that he didn't give it all on Monday's "switch up" episode, when he partnered with Danica McKellar.

Suffice it to say, Chmerkovskiy didn't take kindly to that.

Following the blowup, some social media users suggested that Hough may have been taking sides because her brother Derek is still in competition.

"She said it and now she has to own up to it," said Maks.

After a one-season hiatus, the Ukrainian stud is back in the ballroom. Maksim Chmerkovskiy is returning to Dancing with the Stars this spring, full-time.

He was seen leaving a meeting with executives for the show Wednesday and it's a done deal. Gotta work through that Kate Upton breakup somehow.

It's not clear if Maksim will be back for any more seasons after this one, but fans who thought they'd seen the last of him will no doubt take what they can get.

As for his partner, it's also unclear who he'll be paired with. The celebrity contestants will all be announced next Tuesday on Good Morning America.

Among the rumored contestants? NeNe Leakes and Candace Cameron-Bure.

Even more notably, Erin Andrews, who was partnered with Maksim in Season 10, is coming back this year as host, replacing the fired Brooke Burke-Charvet.

This will be Chmerkovskiy's 14th out of 18 on the long-running ABC series.

Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy split up for a number of reasons, some of which might surprise you. The first one, though, is kind of obvious.

“It was the distance. He travels and she travels, and it didn’t work out,” a pal said, adding that the two “were never that serious in the first place.”

Another source begs to differ regarding that second part.

“She liked him and brought him to meet her parents at a football game. She invited him to a lot of family things. She got serious about him quickly."

"He thinks she’s a good person. It just didn’t work out. The fact of the matter is that she is a 21-year-old girl and Maks is 33,” added the insider.

Our source says Maks “panicked” when Kate Upton went apartment-hunting in Manhattan’s Flatiron District to be near his Fort Lee, N.J., residence.

That's when she got the message, and called it off.

Kate Upton is back on the market. After six months together, the Sports Illustrated model and DWTS pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy have broken up.

Fellas (and ladies), try not to celebrate too vocally at the news at work.

"They are really good friends still and speak all the time, but their schedules just made it too difficult and it fell apart," an insider says of the split.

"[Maks] has a lot of respect for her, but it just wasn't working anymore."

The twosome went public with their romance in September, holding hands during a walk in New York City, months after they started dating on the DL.

"We enjoy each other's company very much," said Maks of Kate Upton. "She's a great girl that I never thought anything romantic like this could have happened."

"She's just an amazing person. We have an incredible time together, and, you know, I definitely didn't see that coming and I think neither did she."

We're sorry they split up ... but now you too can have an incredible time, watching the selected Kate Upton videos we put together after the jump:

Maksim Chmerkovskiy is returning to the Dancing with the Stars ballroom as a guest judge for Monday's semifinals, according to reports.

Yes, he will be handing out the scores instead of complaining about them.

The DWTS pro will be three alongside regular judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli for the show's first-ever "plugged / unplugged" night.

Chmerkovskiy, who appeared on Broadway in "Forever Tango" and heads up six dance studios in the New York area, was long a fixture on DWTS.

He said he was always open to returning one day, so it was not a bitter parting of ways. "I never walked away, or said 'I'm never coming back,'" he said.

Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are not only dating but serious, according to an insider close to the cover girl and Dancing With the Stars alum.

"Along the way," the source says, "it turned into something else."

Moreover, the source adds that "They are very serious."
