Tweeting a victory picture of herself and Hough form backstage at the show, Riley wasn't the only person who was celebrating the win last night, as her Glee co-stars were equally as blown away by the success. Whilst a number of her fellow Glee cast-members tweeted their congratulations for Riley, a handful of her fellow Gleeks, including Lea Michele and Chris Colfer, created a video congratulating Riley on her success, which you can check out below.

“@MsAmberPRiley!!!! OMG!!! So proud of you!!! #DWTSWINNER,” Michelle wrote on her Twitter, with co-star Naya Rivera following suit with, "That's right! @MsAmberPRiley won DWTS! Proud of you!!"

The guys were in on the action too, with Colfer tweeting, "So friggin proud of this girl!!! Love you so much, Amber! @MsAmberPRiley" after posting the video, with Kevin McHale adding, "AMBER FREAKING RILEY!!!!!!! @MsAmberPRiley !!! So proud of you!...Remember that time @MsAmberPRiley won Dancing with the Stars?!?! #teamroughley."

The final was a tightly fought contest, with each of the last three giving their all and proving why they were in the finals in the first place. After the performances, which incorporated a 'fusion dance,' Amber scored a near-perfect 64 points (out of 65), with Bleu landing 62 points and Jack coming behind with 57 points. The scores were then combined with the viewer votes and the final standings reflected the final performances.

Congratulations Amber and Derek, you both earned that win!
