Nov. 25, 2009— -- Victory was sweet for "Dancing With the Stars" season nine winner Donny Osmond, especially because he out-polled sister and former contestant Marie Osmond.

"I beat Marie!" Osmond exclaimed on "Good Morning America." "I am really proud of this. I am the oldest recipient of the Mirror Ball Trophy."

Osmond and fellow finalists Mya and Kelly Osbourne appeared live on "GMA" today to talk about last night's big finale.

"We're running on adrenaline," Osmond, 51, said. "We were competitors but we're best friends."

The winner joked that his three biggest memories from his big win are the look on professional partner Kym Johnson's face, kissing his wife, and letting sister Marie Osmond hold the trophy. He said he planned to put the trophy "at the top of my house with a spotlight on it."

Marie also had a message for her brother. "We are all so proud of you," she said. "You won! Let's never talk about this again."

Osmond seemed stunned to be voted the "Dancing" king on Tuesday night after wowing viewers and judges with his tango. Partner Johnson took home the title for the first time, after being the runner-up twice. She called Osmond "the ultimate professional."

"He's just got the best attitude," she said on "GMA." "We had so much fun all season."

Singer Mya took second place despite consistently winning top scores week after week and top praise for her Tuesday night jive.

"We're tired but wired," she said on "GMA." "I could do it all over again 10 times."

Osbourne was awarded third place after dancing a graceful Viennese Waltz. She thanked America for consistently voting for her week after week and then ran over to her father, heavy metal icon Ozzy Osbourne, for a post-competition hug.

"It was a shock to me to be even in the final," she said on "GMA." "To be in that final was just incredible. It was one of the best nights of my life."

"I am not the same person that walked in that door 15 weeks ago," Osbourne added. "Everything in my life has changes for the better. I never thought it would happen through dancing."
