Gymnast Shawn Johnson, 17, won the Season 8 crown of Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday night, edging out Sex & the City actor Gilles Marini by just 1% of the votes cast in closest finale in DWTS history. “This means the world to me,” Johnson said. “We worked so hard just to make it to the finals. This is the best.” Bachelor star Melissa Rrycroft finished in third place. Marini had been heavily favored throughout the finals, but the judges, including Carrie Ann Inaba (pictured), rated Johnson's freestyle dance on Monday night a winner. (Photo: WENN)
