WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Hines Ward was named the Dancing with the Stars Season 12 champion. Tonight's season finale of "Dancing With The Stars" ended with one couple winning the coveted "mirrorball" trophy. The champion of Season 12 dancing with the stars has been named, but it certainly didn't go down without a fight from fellow finalists.

It came down to three contestants and all couples were given high scores by judges in both of their routines Monday night, but Hines ward wound up as the season's champ.

“The whole competition all year has been close,” said Ward. “Our goal was to just be consistent and stay in the top three. We somehow found a way to make it to the finals and with the freestyle, I owe it all to Kim. She thought of it week five. You know, I’ve always missed the half time show with me being out playing football and we were the half time entertainment so it was just a special night.”

The new cast for Season 13 of “Dancing With The Stars” has unfortunately not been released. However, according to telewatch.com, there has been rumors that Season 13 will be longer, the cast could be larger, and fans may get more opportunities to participate.

Did he sucker punch anyone?

I'm glad you and your loser team lost the Super Bowl! Harrison, Big Dumb Ben, Ward...bunch of cheap shot cheaters! The Pittsburgh Losers!

We already have so many...

We have to begin putting our Super Bowl Rings on the other hand, and we won every one of our Super Bowls and Championships Fair and Square, and that's a Fact Jack!

BTW, we have THREE PROFESSIONAL sports teams in Pittsburgh and Hines Ward is a great athlete, as are the other members of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Pirates and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Steeler Nation, Steeler Country... to coin just a few of the phrases known to the those who can't wait for pre-season to arrive again... but... in the meantime, we have the Buccos! Shake your green weenie at this guy!!!

As a Steeler and Pirate and Penguin Fan, we may as well stick a fork in this guy...He's Done!
