Showbiz veteran Donny Osmond won the ninth season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Tuesday night. Osmond, who was paired with professional dancer Kym Johnson, beat out singer Mya and reality star Kelly Osbourne, who received kudos for her personal growth during the season.

The finale of the high-rated dance program also featured a performance by Whitney Houston and a Paso Doble dance-off between NFL greats Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice.
