Season 30 of “Dancing with the Stars” wrapped on Monday with a history-making moment.
Iman Shumpert took home the Mirrorball Trophy with his professional dance partner, Daniella Karagach. Shumpert’s victory marks the first time a basketball player has won the dance competition.
Host Tyra Banks awarded the 31-year-old NBA player the trophy after competing against finalists JoJo Siwa, Amanda Kloots and Cody Rigsby. The Season 30 finale saw the dance pros and their celebrity partners break it down two more times, for a fusion dance and the fan-favorite freestyle.

The stakes were high as several of the final contestants received perfect scores. “The Talk” co-host Kloots, 39, and her partner Alan Bersten performed a Viennese waltz and a paso doble fusion dance to “Never Tear Us Apart” by Bishop Briggs and then a freestyle to “A Sky Full of Stars” by Coldplay. They received a 38 out of 40 for the first performance and ended their second dance of the night with a perfect score of 40.
Fitness guru Rigsby, 34, and partner Cheryl Burke also earned a perfect score for their freestyle, which was a medley of “Beethoven’s Fifth” and “Nail, Hair, Hips, Heels (Just Dance Version)” by Todrick Hall. Their paso doble and cha cha fusion dance to “Free Your Mind” by En Vogue only brought them a 36.
Youtuber JoJo Siwa and dance pro Jenna Johnson received two perfect scores for their tango and cha cha fusion dance to “I Love It” by Icona Pop feat. Charli XCX and a freestyle dance to “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga.
