Dancing With the Stars crowns US Olympic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez

Laurie, of course, had a little more spunkiness in her (I would too if I were still barely a teenager), but when it came to scoring, all three dancers and their professional partners received similar amounts of flawless scores and judge praise.

Three of the hottest guys from Season 23 - James, Calvin and Ryan - also hit the dance floor with some shirtless male strippers ... sorry, dancers ... to Bruno Mars' "24K Magic".

Calvin Johnson Jr. - who definitely deserved the season's most-improved award - also earned a ideal 40 on Tuesday with partner Lindsay Arnold for his jive/quickstep mix-up. Finally, "Dancing With The Stars" announced that Laurie Hernandez and Val Chmerkovskiy had emerged as winners for season 23, writes E! Performing a fusion dance of Foxtrot and Argentine Tango, that they had less than 24 hours to learn and flawless, Hernandez and Chmerkovskiy did what they have been doing all fall long - they absolutely CRUSHED it.

As you can see in the video posted above, she broke down in front of the judges after dedicating a routine a couple weeks ago to her late grandmother. But she doesn't hold him responsible for getting her eliminated.

With Jana Kramer getting the boot on Monday night, it was down to three contestants: James Hinchcliffe, Calvin Johnson Jr. and Laurie Hernandez. The Indianapolis Star reports that during one of James' performances, judge Carrie Ann Inaba called Hinchcliffe the "miracle man of Season 23 of Dancing with the Stars".

As far as comparing her Olympic golds to the Mirror Ball trophy, the two wins are not as day-and-night as one might think.

"I think she brings out in me what she brings out in millions of people, is like this attractive joy and a sense of gratitude", he added.

"I do want to inspire others..." "I can say no more than this". Similarly, she revealed that she had always been passionate about dance.

"Honestly, they feel like they are tied with each other!" Laurie said in an interview after the DWTS finale.
