And the winner of 'Dancing with the Stars' is...

.... "Dirty Dancing" star Jennifer Grey! Here's a recap of how tonight's show went down:

The 11th season finale of "Dancing with the Stars" began with a dance routine featuring all but two of this season's competitors - Michael Bolton had a concert in London, while Audrina Patridge came down with a mystery illness.

After a quick run-through of what happened on last night's show, host Tom Bergeron brought out Jennifer Grey, who admitted that she ruptured a disc Monday night, but would try to complete the finale's two required dances.

Stars come out for Joan Collins' one woman show

Celebrities including Liam Neeson, Bravo's Andy Cohen, Vanity Fair honcho Graydon Carter and Harper's Bazaar editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey turned out at New York City's Feinstein's at Loews Regency last night to see Joan Collins talk about life, loves, legends - and even do a split! – in her one-woman show, "One Night With Joan."

The hour-long set, which features film clips and family photos, opens with the "Dynasty" diva – still stunning at 77 – revealing that she always wanted to be in show business and, as a child, wrote fan letters to Hollywood stars whom she would later work with, including dancer Gene Kelly.

While studying acting in her teens, the squeaky-voiced Collins was told she would never make it in the theater and was instead doomed to do films – her goal, of course! Shortly after Collins arrived in Hollywood to make movies, she met a breathy young blonde who warned her that the casting couch was alive and well. That bombshell was Marilyn Monroe.

Wahlberg: Yeah, 'The Happening' was pretty bad...

Though he tried to remain mysterious, Mark Wahlberg couldn't help but reveal the name of his worst movie during a recent press conference.

Promoting his new drama "The Fighter," Wahlberg told reporters that he and co-star Amy Adams had previously met to discuss doing a different project together that turned out to be a box-office dud.

"We had actually had the luxury of having lunch before to talk about another movie and it was a bad movie that I did," Wahlberg said, taking care not to reveal the title. "She dodged the bullet. And then I was still able to… I don’t want to tell you what movie… alright 'The Happening.' F- it."

President Obama gives 'Mythbusters' a hot mission

In the midst of trying to fix the nation's problems, President Barack Obama is attempting to get to the bottom of another matter: the legend of Archimedes' solar ray. That's why he's called in the "Mythbusters" team for a little help.

"I am a big fan of 'Mythbusters,'" Obama tells incredulous co-hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman in a clip of his upcoming episode. "I am and so are the girls. I think we have a big one that hasn't been thoroughly tested: It is Archimedes' solar ray."

According to legend, Greek scientist Archimedes set fire to invading Roman ships using just mirrors and sun rays during the Siege of Syracuse in 214 B.C.

Beyonce: One day, hopefully, I'll be pregnant

She's not pregnant yet, but will anyone care when Beyoncé finally does start a family? That's the question the singer is asking herself after refuting the latest round of baby rumors!

"At this point they said I've been pregnant like eight times, so I'm kind of used to it," Beyoncé told MTV News at a New York City screening of her "I Am… World Tour" concert DVD. "I just hope that one day, when I decide to be pregnant that people are happy for me, 'cause ...everyone's like, 'Oh god, please! She's been pregnant 100 times.'"

The superstar singer, who is married to music mogul Jay-Z, 40, was last said to be with child in October, though her mom, Tina Knowles, put those rumors to rest during an appearance on "Ellen."
