Strictly Come Dancing judge Motsi Mabuse was left sobbing over John Whaite and Johannes Radebe's Showdance on Saturday's final.
During the latest instalment, where Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice were crowned the winners, Motsi, 40, broke down in tears over John, 32, and Johannes', 34, routine to You've Got The Love by Florence + the Machine.
John is Strictly's first ever all-male same sex couple with professional dancer Johannes and an emotional Motsi thanked the duo for "changing lives".
She said: "You know what I'm thinking? What a great time it is to be part of Strictly on this day… to have seen you, to have seen Rose, to be sitting here and saying: 'I am a part of that', we're changing so many lives with this dance show.
"This felt like it was for all of us, not just your journey, all of us and every single person in this show, everybody in the background and everybody here in front of the cameras. Thanks you for that so much…"
Both John and Johannes were also left emotional over the routine, especially when they were awarded the highest score possible of 40.
During the finale, Rose and Giovanni were crowned the winners of Strictly Come Dancing 2021 as they took home the Glitterball trophy.
It comes after AJ Odudu made the devastating announcement on Friday 17 December that she would no longer be taking part in the final due to her painful ankle injury.
Rose, who is the first deaf contestant to take part in Strictly, and Giovanni were left in tears after the results were announced as they celebrated in the BBC studio.
Talking about being crowned the winners, Giovanni said: "Incredible, incredible. I have to say thank you to this beautiful young lady who made all my dreams come true."
The pro dancer then broke down in tears as he continued: "You became the best dancer, the best team mate I could ask for. You are a dream Rose, you really are a dream. So thank you for everything, thank you!"
While Rose sweetly added: "I just wanted to say, you are so amazing. You pushed me to believe in myself more than I believe in myself. You are an incredible teacher and not just that, you are a wonderful friend.
