NFL star Hines Ward and dance partner Kym Johnson won the mirrorball trophy on the finale of “Dancing With the Stars” season 11 tonight.

Johnson certainly earned it — she took a nasty fall in rehearsals a few weeks back, bumping her head on the floor.

Ward was a come-out-of-nowhere winner on the show — consistently smooth and drama-free, he emerged as a front-runner at the last minute and ended up winning it all.

Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovsky came in second, while Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas came in third.
