Dancing With the Stars 2012 Results: Who Won DWTS 2012?

On the Dancing With the Stars 2012 results show tonight, fans will finally learn who will be taking home the Mirror Ball Trophy and be crowned the DWTS 2012 winner! Who won Dancing With the Stars 14? Read on in our DWTS 2012 results show recap for the finals for the full scoop and the final performance videos!

The Dancing With the Stars 2012 cast celebrities have been whittled down to just three remaining contestants: Latin actor and hunk William Levy, soaring Welsh soprano Katherine Jenkins, and NFL Green Bay Packer Donald Driver. The scores between the three remaining couples were so tight last night there was barely any difference at all, and in the overall DWTS 14 leaderboard, the three pairs are barely separated by a small margin of points.

WARNING: DANCING WITH THE STARS 2012 SPOILERS AHEAD!

Please stop reading here if you do not want Dancing With the Stars 2012 spoilers about the DWTS 2012 results show for the finals!

*****************************************************************************

Who won Dancing With the Stars 14 is really anyone’s guess! Any of the three would be worthy DWTS 2012 winners of the Mirror Ball Trophy. No matter who takes home the top prize on Dancing With the Stars 14, I think they will have earned it.

Still, we all have our favorite couples we are rooting for and I have to admit mine is Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas. I just love how much heart and soul Katherine really seems to put into her dances, even if she isn’t quite perfect all the time or quite as blatantly sexy as William Levy and Cherl Burke and the whole Latin heart-throb seduces beautiful woman thing going on with them. As for Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd, there is now doubt Donald has proven he has the athleticism to kill it on the dance floor. He’s also the only contestant left who hasn’t been battling some kind of injury through half the season. He might be thought by some to be the least likely to win, but I would not count him out just yet!

So who won Dancing With the Stars 2012 and walked away with that coveted Mirror Ball Trophy? Let’s move right along to our Dancing With the Stars results show recap for the finale and find out!

To launch the Dancing With the Star 2012 finale show, we have a very smoking hot little review to get us in the mood for a very long evening of DWTS 2012 madness before we finally learn the results. All the contestants come out and do a little twirl on the dance floor.

For the encore performance for the night, Len Goodman says the judges want to see Donad Driver and Peta Murgatroyd do their Freestyle performance from last night. Why do I feel this is the kiss of death and Donald Driver will not be winning tonight?

Len is loving on the freestyle and thinks Donald Driver is great. The judges move on to talk about how great William Levy is, but Len notes that it takes him a long time to recover when he messes up. The judges think Katherine Jenkins really has more technical ability than any contestant on the show ever, but wonder if she doesn’t put enough passion and emotion into her dances. Len thinks Donald Driver is really driven to win, but that sometimes maybe he tries too hard and loses the natural feeling.

Next up we have a performance from eliminated contestant Sherri Shepherd, dancing a Cha Cha to “It’s Raining Men” with Maxim Chmerkovskiy and Val Chmerkovskiy. Saucy Sherri sandwich!

Now we have Martina Navratilova and Tony Dovolani on the dance floor looking stiff and not so great. They are followed by Jack Wagner and Anna Trebunskaya and they aren’t so great either.

Then we have Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff giving a spin in the ballroom, they still are blah. Wow, you can really see how good the top 3 are in comparison when you see how these former contestants stumble around the dance floor.

Oh, finally, some real information! For their “24 hour challenge” dance, Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas have chosen to do a Jive and we get a bit of a preview on that. And then we have to watch Tristan MacManus and Gladys Knightwith their Jive from earlier in the season. Tristan is going to perform in the Las Vegas Dancing With the Stars show. Yeah, yeah, get on with it already!

Jaleel White and Kym Johnson perform a Paso Doble to Shaft next. Jaleel still looks pretty good and I still think he was one of the better eliminated celebrities. Donald and Peta reveal they will be doing the Cha Cha for their “24 hour challenge” dance tonight and we have a preview of that.

And yet another previous contestant takes the dance floor as Melissa Gilbert dances with Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his brother Val. Melissa is still a terrible dancer but Maks and Val rock. Lastly we have Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower doing a freestyle. Not bad actually.

Now we take a break as former American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson takes the stage to perform her new single “Dark Side”.

Finally we have the top 3 coming out to do their “24 hour challenge” dances! First up is William Levy and Cheryl Burke doing the Salsa. He is smoking up the room and the crowd loves it!

Judges: Len Goodman says if Salsa was an Olympic sport, William would get the gold medal. Bruno Tonioli says the hips don’t lie when it comes to a hot and sexy Salsa and nobody does it better than William. Carrie Ann Inaba says William has real star quality and he always raises the temperature in the ballroom!

Scores: Perfect 10s from all the judges.

Katherine and Mark are now doing a Jive for their “24 hour challenge” dance. This is a very fun one and it looks like they are enjoying it.

Judges: Bruno says Katherine is versatile blond bombshell with great technique. She is a stunning dancer and one of the best contestants on the show. Carrie Ann says Katherine is an artist and she set the bar high early in the season. Len thinks Katherine is the total package.

Scores: Perfect 10s from all the judges.

Last we have Donald Driver and Pet Murgatroyd dancing the Cha Cha and Donald is showing off his shirtless bod, which has the audience all crazed.

Judges: Carrie Ann says Donald is a fierce contestant who really shows his love for the show and he is determine to win. Len says there are no losers tonight, all of them are total winners. Donald is the best football player they’ve had. Burno says ‘Donald the Magnificent’ had another huge hit and he just kept improving every week.

Scores: Perfect 10s from all the judges.

Former eliminated contestant Gladys Knight takes to the stage for a final performance while we wait for the results to find out who is the Dancing With the Stars 2012 winner.

Finally we have the results coming in now and wow I am totally surprised by who ended up where! Ready to find out the ranking for the final three? Here we go!

In 3rd place we have William Levy and Cheryl Burke!

In 2nd place we have Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas!

That means your new Dancing With the Stars 2012 champions are Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd!

  1. I watched allll the 2012 dancing with the stars shows, and voted for the best dancer.  However, the results of 2012 STINK !!   This is a popularity show, and not a “dancing” show.   I will never watch this show again.   NEVER, NEVER.   I am furious !!!  I am 71 years old, and enjoy the dancing, but it has turned into a popularity contest, with all the “game” boys calling in for the winner.   Ugh!!

  3. What the….Donald never even got a perfect score till last night. I still think Maria should have been at the finals instead of him (he’s so stiff)! Kathryn & William were robbed…

  5. I watched dancing with the star since the begining, now I know it’s fixed, I will never watch it again

  6. Kathryn was robbed.  I bet everyone will say that!  Plus, why do they have to drag the show out…..I watched the same dances over and over.  This was absurd!!!!!!!   Just total waste of my time!   They had better revise this finale crap so we don’t have to wait so long for the announcement!  Ridiculous!

  7. talk about a fixed show. no way that the results were fair. there were 3 white couples much better than the black guy. a total  fix for the black vote

  9. To all the haters Donald rocked it I think Katherine is a great dancer but she messed up last week, Maria should have been there not her, she played the injury card but jumped up and down when she was safe. Peta is an awesome teacher and dancer, Donald was the best dancer!

  11. People need to understand that this IS a popularity contest. Any show that lets an audience vote is. Lesser-known people will not win no matter how great they dance. It’s so childish to say you won’t watch the show for that reason! Grow up people, you can’t control votes, don’t expect to. 😉

  13. If this is true, it is a shame. He never looked like a professional. His feet tip toed and slid around. He never had a perfect score until last night and he told Len to give it to him, and he did. The dance was not fresh and clean. Carrie Ann just falls apart any ass that shakes her way and Bruno is a pervert. Donald didnot earn this title, it was given to him. Sad, Sad, sad day for DWTS.

    With this win, I will not watch Goodmorning America tomorrow, I just don’t want to hear the praises for a job he did not do. So now you know, if you are a football player, come on DWTS and you automatically win.

  14. All you people saying football players win must not watch, Jerry Rice didn’t win and neither did Warren, get over Donald was a great dancer and a great person

  15. what a joke!!! Driver was stiff, william was better then him.
    But Katherine should have won she was by far the best.
    Never again will I watch this show

  16. you guys are idiots. Guys don’t watch DWTS the stars. Especially guys who watch the NFL lol. Driver won deal with it. Katherine messed up and  faked some BS injury for sympathy. Get over yourselves. 

  17. I so loved this season!!! They all were were WONDERFUL!!! BUT DONALD AND PETA WERE MY FAVORITE!!!

  18. I feel as tho everyone that voted is just a wast of time >Why don’t they show on tv how many  the votes were cast for each dancer
      NEVER AGAIN will I watch even if they had Obama dancing
