Amber Riley wins season 17 of 'Dancing With the Stars'

LOS ANGELES, CA

Amber Riley got to hoist the mirror ball trophy at the conclusion of last night's Season 17 finale. She and pro partner Derek Hough had perfect scores from the judges on their last three dances.

The ample-sized Riley says her victory is empowering for "women of all sizes."

In his last critique of Riley on last night's show, head judge Len Goodman called her -- quote -- "my little sausage." Goodman adds Riley's performances were "bedazzling."
