After 11 weeks of competition, the finalists included Bachelorette star Hannah Brown; country music singer Lauren Alaina; actor and Nickelodeon star Kel Mitchell; and Fifth Harmony singer Ally Brooke.
Season 28 of Dancing With the Stars came to a close on Monday night - but not without a few flubs. "But this whole season has been filled with ups and downs and unexpected twists and turns". The cast of professional dancers will include Witney Carson, Gleb Savchenko, Lindsay Arnold, Jenna Johnson, Emma Slater, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Sasha Farber, Alan Bersten, Daniella Karagach, Pasha Pashkov, and Brandon Armstrong. So fans might see Ray Lewis, James Van Der Beek, and Lamar Odom.
"I've never felt that from the ballroom when a victor was announced like tonight", Carrie Ann said, seemingly ignoring the shocked reactions that resulted when radio personality Bobby Bones and partner Sharna Burgess won Season 27 a year ago.
Erin Andrews is defending her reaction to Hannah Brown's Dancing with the Stars win. "And what the audience says is very important and we honor it". Bersten said he was "so proud" of Brown, and he can't believe their journey ended with a victory.
In the end, Hannah and Alan took home the Mirrorball Trophy!
"To be honest, I don't know if I had a specific idea [of] who I thought was going to win", Carrie Ann explained to the magazine.
Inaba says it would have been great to see any of those five win the show, and she isn't sure why Brown's victory was so shocking to everyone.

Others also flocked to Twitter to blast the host, writing that Erin had a "rude and unprofessional reaction" and said 'she should be fired immediately'.
It was Brown's freestyle dance, however, that made all the judges smile.
