List Criteria: Only includes winners from the U.S. version of Dancing with the Stars

A complete list of Dancing with the Stars winners, voted best to worst by fans of the show. As new Dancing with the Stars champions are set to be crowned, take a look back at all the winners from previous seasons. The ABC reality competition series is one of the most top-rated dance programs on television and features stars of film, TV, music, sports and pop culture. DWTS premiered in 2005 with only six celebrity competitors. General Hospital actress Kelly Monaco became the first-ever celeb to take home the show's mirror ball trophy alongside her professional partner Alec Mazo. The competition became tougher each season and saw famous personalities attempt to master various ballroom and Latin dances such as the Waltz, Quickstep, Samba and Cha-Cha-Cha.

Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli make up the judging panel, but it's America's vote that ultimately decides the winners of Dancing with the Stars. In Season 15, The Bachelor contestant Melissa Rycroft competed against the show's most memorable contestants during the show's All-Stars version and beat out previous winners such as 98 Degrees singer Drew Lachey and hot gymnast Shawn Johnson. The series celebrated its 16th season with a dozen celebrity contestants vying to win. On May 21, Kellie Pickler won Season 16 against finalists Zendaya Coleman, Aly Raisman and Jacoby Jones. The country singer joins the elite list below as the newest DWTS champ. Vote up your favorite winner to the top of the past Dancing with the Stars winners list and see who's truly the best of the best!
