Shawn Johnson & Derek Hough Runners Up, DWTS All-Stars Season

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!
