Dereck Hough and Amber Riley are the winners of DWTS 2013, season 17.

The DWTS winner was crowned last night (November 26, 2013) Amber Riley was chosen as the champ of Dancing with the Stars for season 17, topping the two male finalists Corbin Bleu and Jack Osbourne.

The 'Glee' actress and her professional partner Derek Hough have taken home this year's mirrorball trophy after triumphing over 'High School Musical actor Corbin Bleu and his professional partner Karina Smirnoff with a perfect-scoring samba/quickstep fusion.

Speaking after the result was announced, Amber said: ''Anything that scares me I want to do. You can do whatever, whatever, whatever you put your mind to.''

And despite coming second, Corbin was just delighted to have taken part.

He said: ''I thank god for this experience. I thank my family.''

Earlier in the evening, Jack Osbourne - whose sister Kelly came third on the show in 2009 - and his partner Cheryl Burke were eliminated into third place after the first round of dances.

He said: ''I'm definitely not a better dancer than my sister, for one. We're both tied.

''Just going the distance for me was winning enough.''

Last year, Jack announced he had been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, and his dance partner hailed his performance on the show as inspirational.

Emotional Cheryl said: ''Jack has not only been such a n inspiration to me but such an inspiration to everyone out there. Jack has shown me there's so much life to live.''
