She was known for her technical prowess, her commitment to perfection and her ability to stay calm under pressure all season on “Dancing With the Stars.”

But the victory — and the sparkly mirror ball trophy — slipped from Shawn Johnson’s grasp Tuesday night on the all-stars season finale as Shawn and partner Derek Hough came in second place onDancing With The Stars: All-Stars finale.

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani took home the coveted mirrored ball trophy.

“[Derek’s] given me back something that will last forever, and in a thirteen-week time period,” Shawn dished to ET. “Coming off of my [gymnastics] comeback, I lost really the only thing that I knew. I found my confidence and my enjoyment and everything on a gymnastics floor, and when you don’t have that you kind of lose sight of any place to find that. Coming into dancing, where I knew I wasn’t the best; I knew I was somewhat insecure; I really didn’t know where to find it, and each week he kind of brought a little more out of me and let me open up and have fun and find confidence and find a stage. That meant the world to me.”

Congrats to Shawn and Derek on a fantastic season!
