Dancing With the Stars Season 18 came down to Amy Purdy and Derek Hough, Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas, and Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, with Meryl and Maks taking home the top prize.

Was it the right call? There were certainly arguments to be made in every couple's favor, but in the end it's easy to see why these two took home the prize. Meryl was undeniably the strongest dancer of the season technically, and her artistry was nearly unparalleled in the history of the show. And her partnership with Maks really was special.

On the other hand, we can see why fans of the other two couples were disappointed.

Amy was quite the inspiration. As a double amputee it was amazing she was out there at all, and she certainly moved many to tears every week. But she was more than her disability; she was also a graceful dancer and fierce competitor. Meanwhile, Candace was the everywoman of the bunch. Sure, she's a famous actress, but she has zero dance experience, and she seems to define herself as much as a mother and woman of faith as by her career. People at home could relate, and her growth journey was amazing to see.
