Football Star Hines Ward Is Crowned New `Dancing' Champ

Hines Ward can add a disco-ball trophy to his Super Bowl shelf.

The Steelers wide receiver and former Super Bowl MVP won the "Dancing With the Stars" title Tuesday, besting actresses Kirstie Alley and Chelsea Kane to become the season 12 champ.

The champion was chosen by viewer votes combined with judges' scores.

Ward and professional partner Kym Johnson came into the season finale tied for first place with Kane. The couple added another 30 points to their total Tuesday.

The 35-year-old Ward is the second professional football player to win the "Dancing" crown. Emmitt Smith won in 2006.
