Pussycat Dolls singer delighted with victory

Nicole Scherzinger has been crowned champion of Dancing
With The Stars

The Pussycat Doll beat Olympic skater Evan Lysacek in the final of the hit US show.

‘I feel like I just won a Grammy,’ said Nicole, 31. ‘A dancing Grammy!

‘This has been probably the greatest reward personally, this whole personal journey.

‘I’ve learned so much about myself. [Dance partner] Derek Hough made me a better person through this.’

Nicole earned top marks for her final dance – the Jive.

‘There can only be one winner of Dancing With The Stars,’ said head judge Len Goodman. ‘It should be you.’

Earlier, ESPN reporter Erin Andrews was voted out in third place.

Nicole is dating Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton, 25.
