Sara Evans returned to 'Dancing with the Stars' tonight and delivered a stirring performance of a very appropriate song, 'A Little Bit Stronger,' just before the season's celebrity dancing winner was announced on the finale.

Evans, who appeared as a contestant on 'DWTS' in 2006 before family trouble forced her to withdraw early, seemed happy to be re-visiting her old stomping ground, and the track's message of overcoming obstacles rang true both for herself and this season's contestants.

Video footage of finalists Hines Ward, Kirstie Alley and Chelsea Kane learning how to dance over the season's episodes aired on large video screens behind Evans. She planted herself center stage and focused on singing the track, which was the first single from her 2011 album 'Stronger.'

Evans recently performed alongside country stars such as Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum as part of the 'Music Builds: CMT Disaster Relief Concert.'
