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 ...

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:

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.

Christina Milian and Mark Ballas' elimination on last night's Dancing With the Stars results show was one of the most shocking in the show's 17 seasons.

They had had excellent reasons to believe they were safe, having just received the first 10 of the season for their cha-cha and an overall score of 28.

That was good enough for a tie for first - not last, but first - but fan votes were so far out of line with the scores that the two were ousted at night's end.

Ballas didn’t do the press line after getting booted from the ballroom, but Milian spoke to the media after the live broadcast about her surprise expulsion:

“I was shocked, for sure. I’m not saying it should have been anybody else, but to be honest, after having a great performance you feel a bit more confident.”

Maybe last week's brouhaha between Julianne Hough and Mark Ballas, in which she said he outshines his partners, played a role in the results?

Childhood friends Mark Ballas and Julianne Hough may be in a little bit of a tiff after last night's Dancing With the Stars, in which she guest judged.

After performing as a dance pro for five seasons, Julianne filled in for Len Goodman Monday, and weighed in on Ballas' foxtrot with Christina Milian.

"There were moments where I felt like choreography-wise, I felt like it was two people dancing side-by-side rather than together," she said on the show.

"So I really want to see [Milian] shine. I've danced with Mark."

"You have to stand in front to make sure you're seen."

Afterward, Ballas didn't sound too thrilled with that.

Jimmy Kimmel apologized to Bristol Palin last night for making fun of her mom. Okay, he's not really sorry at all, but he openly acknowledged that he had done so.

When Bristol, who was far from amused following Tuesday's Dancing With the Stars results show, shot back that his apology was BS, Jimmy offered her a deal:

Bristol became the fifth member of the Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars cast to be voted off this season. What do you think, did she deserve to go?

Last night's Dancing With the Stars results show marked the end of Bristol Palin's run on the program, and her partner Mark Ballas has a theory on why they got bounced:

Bristol Palin played it too safe and didn't think outside the box, he feels.

  • Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas DWTS

Ballas told reporters he was "dead serious" about dressing up as an animal pair for their routine previous night, which Palin nixed (see their performance below).

He doesn't regret her decision, he says, but believes taking a risk could've helped her.

Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas are young, hot, newly single stars - she split with Jay Cutler, he broke up with Pia Toscano - who dance suggestively.

Let the dating rumors begin!

"That s––t's already started," Ballas said, laughing off the rumors that he's doing the horizontal mambo with Cavallari. "She is a sweetheart. We have a lot of fun."

"We both laugh a lot. We're getting along great."

Cavallari, whose engagement to Jay Cutler just ended this summer, has no problems with people speculating that she and Ballas are more than partners.

"I kind of expected [the dating rumors], to be honest," she says.

"That's just what happens when you put two people together."

All celebrity gossip aside, the dancing duo is excited about what the season holds in the ballroom. Says Mark, after this week's DWTS results:

"I'm really proud of her so far. We’re focusing on the routines and making the best performances for our fans. We're really grateful to them for voting for us."

The reality show romance between Pia Toscano and Mark Ballas has come to an end.

The ballroom guru and the American Idol finalist - who started dating soon after the latter was shockingly eliminated from season 10 - "both decided with everything going on that they couldn't give each other what would be fair," says a source. "They mutually decided this."

Ballas is paired with Kristin Cavallari on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars and there's little doubt rumors will soon surface over whether or not she played a role in this split.

Toscano, meanwhile, will release her debut album this fall.

In terms of making the most out of one's ability, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmkerovskiy are as stellar as Dancing With the Stars pairs come.

Ditto Hines Ward and Kym Johnson. But in terms of pure talent and grace under fire, Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas may have the slight edge.

After her samba and freestyle on Monday's DWTS finals, the Disney star continued her near-perfect streak and looks like the woman to beat.

It will likely come down to voter turnout between Chelsea and Hines, both of whom posted total scores of 59 out of a possible 60 last night.

Fresh and edgy, while cuter and sexier than the other couples, Mark and Chelsea made their case in a big way. Watch their routines below:

All three finalists proved themselves deserving of the Mirror Ball last night.

There can be only one champion of Dancing With the Stars, though, and more than likely, it will come down to one of two couples on this evening's results show.

Monday night's dueling DWTS finale performances involved two categories - a first round of judges' choice and a second round of freestyle dance.

Chelsea Kane aced both with the kind of fierce determination and focus necessary to execute partner Mark Ballas' unconventional choreography.

Kane and Ballas

Her first dance, a samba, had Bruno deeming her an "an ultra sexy bombshell" and commending the "rhythm flowing through your body like I've never seen before."

Chelsea and Mark's second dance, a freestyle Tron-esque number, earned them a 30 to go with the 29 in their salsa, posting a number near impossible to best.

Hines Ward and Kym Johnson felt up to the task, however.

The NFL star donned a top hat for this week's judges' choice in a peppy quick step that ended with a burst of flair and champaigne at the judges' table.

"You make it like you're running for a touchdown and the whole crowd is cheering for you and following you around the ballroom," Carrie Ann said.
