Meryl Davis added a "Dancing With The Stars" Mirror Ball trophy to her Olympic gold skating medal and as the 18th edition of the show wound down Tuesday rapper Iggy Azalea barely surviving the perils of live television.

Davis, who won the ice pairs competition at the Sochi Winter Olympics with Charlie Davis in February, paired with DWTS veteran Maksim Chmerkovskiy to beat out Amy Purdy and Candace Cameron Bure in the finals, reported Us Weekly.

"(The trophy is) just plastic, but it means so much," Chmerkovskiy said after the competition, according to Us Weekly. "And to (win) it with Meryl is a dream come true. There's a reason it didn't happen before. It's because I was meant to do it with her."

Not everything went smoothly on the DWTS finale, as Australian rapper Iggy Azalea stopped her performance briefly as a guest star when her ear piece did not work.

"Iggy owes (Val Chmerkovskiy) a huge thank you considering she was ready to stop the performance because something was wrong with her ear before the Russian escorted her down the stairs anyway," wrote Entertainment Weekly's Samantha Highfill.

"Thankfully, she found her footing. Why she was dressed like she was in 'Grease' is another story entirely, but I'm just glad Val kept her moving, because I was already cringing."

Azalea apologized for the distraction on Twitter shorting after her performance.

"I am so sorry guys! My in ears messed up and I couldn't hear the track. The drama of live TV. S*** happens. Still really enjoyed it," Azalea tweeted after she left the stage.

White, Davis' Olympic partner, also participated in the competition, but he and his professional dance partner Sharma Burgess were sent home in the semifinals, noted ABC News. White told "Good Morning America" that he was pulling for his Olympic teammate.

"(I) think, coming off winning an Olympic gold medal, achieving our life long stream together, we were in (DWTS) together," White told GMA. "Even if technically we were competing against each other, we were so proud to see the other one out there doing their thing. I'm so proud of how well Meryl is doing and how well she's represented herself."
