Helio and Julianne are "Doing the Happy Dance!"

The Dancing with the Stars season finale ended up with Helio Catroneves and his partner, Julianne Hough, getting the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy in front of 25 million viewers. Helio, a two-time Indianapolis 500 winner from Brazil said “This is an incredible moment!”

Castroneves and Hough came into the finals in second place, one point behind Brown and her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Brown was described as “the most versatile dancer” of the 12 celebrities by one of the show’s judges, Len Goodman. And overall, she showed herself to be the more polished and professional performer.

But it was Helio's personality and enthusiasm and a phenomenal 'quick step' in my favorite yellow suit, that won the hearts of the viewers and proved him to be the final winner. Judge Bruno Tonioli said Castroneves is “like the sunny side of life.”
