Perfect 10!

After 10 weeks of entertaining drama, Shawn Johnson, the 17-year-old gymnast was named "Dancing With the Stars" champion during the nailbiting season finale. Johnson was tied with actor Gilles Marini after "The Bachelor's" Melissa Rycroft was dismissed earlier in Tuesday's show. All three finalists performed one last dance, each earning a perfect score of 30 from the judges.
