(AP) — Kellie Pickler didn't win on "American Idol." But she does on "Dancing With the Stars." The country singer looked shocked as host Tom Bergeron announced that she and pro partner Derek Hough win the mirrorball trophy.

She screamed "Oh my God!" Pickler got two sets of perfect 10s from the judges Monday night and another last night. But so did runner-up Zendaya.

The Disney kid had a lead of a single point going into last night's finale. But it was the viewer votes that put Pickler over the top. Football pro Jacoby Jones finishes in third place.

Because there were problems with voting on the ABC website during Monday's East Coast broadcast, those votes didn't count. Only votes cast by phone, text and Facebook figured into the final count.
