Glee’s Amber Riley Wins Dancing With the Stars

Shockingly enough, the lady who spent five seasons on Glee is a pretty good dancer. Amber Riley won this the seventeenth season of Dancing With the Stars, beating out finalists Corbin Bleu and Jack Osbourne for the title. "I did this competition because, I didn't know if I [could] do it and anything that scares me I wanna do, so I [want to] let women of all sizes out there know you can do whatever you put your mind to," Riley said after her win. "It doesn't matter what size you are, what color you are, you can do whatever, whatever, whatever, whatever you put your mind to!"

The night was also a big win for Riley’s dance pro partner Derek Hough, who's now helped five ladies to the Mirror Ball Trophy (Brooke Burke-Charvet, Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Grey, Kellie Pickler, and now Riley). The pros in second place, Cheryl and Mark Ballas, have two wins each.

Check out Riley and Hough's three finals performances, which each earned a perfect score:
