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.

The first round of dancing involved the favorite ballroom dance of the competitors, with the three judges deciding who's best on a 10-9-8 scoring system.  Kyle Massey delivered a fiery tango that drove the crowd into a frenzy and pleased the panel. Bristol Palin also went the tango route, once again channeling her inner air guitarist to the delight of the audience.  Len Goodman noted that while Kyle had the "wow," Bristol had the "how."  Is that a compliment or an enigma wrapped in a riddle?

Jennifer then attempted a waltz, bad disc and all.  She appeared to hold her own, despite a possible stumble midway through her routine.  Nevertheless, the dance made "Activia Woman" happy, and that's what counts. In the end, the judges gave Jennifer perfect 10s.  Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli each gave Kyle 9s, while Len awarded Bristol a 9.

The final dance was a cha-cha performed to the Pink tune, "Raise Your Glass." Kyle danced first, followed by Jennifer and Bristol.

But before the cha-cha, it was time for a song-and-dance by German pop legend David Hasselhoff, who sounded quite tone deaf behind the mike.  Germans may know beer, but pop music?  Not so much.

Kurt Warner and Rick Fox then faced off in a routine set to Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger."  (Did anyone else think Kurt's shirt looked like something he bought at a "Mork and Mindy" estate sale?) Margaret Cho and Florence Henderson came out to boogie to "Copacabana."

Then we had a "Situation" on stage, as Mike Sorrentino basically walked around and flirted with three female dancers.  In the audience, Mary Hart was impressed, at least. Brandy, who some thought would skip the finale after last week's surprise elimination, showed up to perform a quickstep to the "Friends" theme.

Now we get to the final dances of the season or, in Len's words, "the brawl for the Mirrorball."  First up was Kyle, who got the crowd going with a high-energy cha-cha.  Jennifer came out, showing no issue with the ruptured disc she talked about earlier.  Bristol was the last competitor out, and she appeared to hold her own as well.  But what did the judges think of these dueling cha-chas?

Bruno called Jennifer's dance "perfection," adding that Bristol "saved the best for last." And according to Carrie Ann: Kyle is joy, Bristol is hope and Jennifer is perseverance.  "Dancing with the Stars" is not just a show, it's one big motivational speech.  In the end, Kyle and Jennifer each got 28 points, both getting 10s from Bruno, while Bristol earned 27 points.

It's now time to pick a winner and runners-up:  First up, was the third-place finisher, Bristol Palin.  Bristol said she was grateful for the experience, and Tom Bergeron saluted her for making it so far in the competition.  Meanwhile, America searches for something new to get frustrated about.

Finally, we have a winner, and it's Jennifer Grey, who seemingly took control of the competition in the final weeks and never looked back. And for professional dancer Derek Hough, it's his third victory on the show, previously taking Nicole Scherzinger and Brooke Burke to the Mirrorball Trophy.

What did you think of the "Dancing with the Stars" finale? Did the right competitor win?

  8. Th Best Won

    Thank goodness Bristol did not win and the right ones did...although I think Brandy should have been in Bristols place at the finale!Even on the last dances of the night Bristol was not dancing just waiting for the steps ...put your arm this way and your leg that way kind of robotic.
    Have you ever wondered why Sarah Palins Alaska was on close to the DWTS show...I think it was to show or try to show Bristol in a new light and make people either feel sorry for her or just to make her appear more vunerable to get more votes!And also there are million of 16 and 17 year olds that get pregnant each year..but do they get to go out on speaking engagements and make millions of dollars (with mamas endorsements)
    Even when Brandy was elimanated you didn't see shock on Bristols face ( she knew she was going to win) and the judges brought much harsher criticism to the other dancers and not much to her(I am sure out of respect to Mama Palin).So glad the drama of the Palins is over!!!! Good riddance!

    You are either too young to remember, or perhaps too old.....but when she was 13, Rush Limbaugh called Chelsea Clinton "the White House dog". John McCain called her ugly when she was 18. So what is your point? Fame brings out the worst in people and the Palin's will have to learn to take it like everyone else.
    No, they're to flipping outright hypocritical. They can certainly dish it out but when it comes to taking it, it's 'do as I say and not as I do'.

    I started watching the show DWTS only when i found out that Bristol was one of the contestants...out of curiosity. The very first time i saw Bristol danced, i said to myself she won't last long. I've started liking the show as i enjoyed the other good dancers. However, i realized the show has been doing the eliminations one by one except Bristol who has been very dull in her moves (plus all the missteps and wrong timings). I started to wonder how a bad dancer like her could stay when all the other better dancers get eliminated before her...i started to doubt the show's credibility. My disappointment with the show and the voting system grew bigger and bigger, especially that week when Brandy was eliminated (leaving Bristol with Kyle and Jennifer)...very unbelievable!!!!! Having Bristol as one of the three finalists is just a huge BS...when she should have been gone several weeks ago!!!! I know in my heart Bristol knows she does NOT deserve the honor at all. I said to myself...i won't allow this phony show to fool me (and am sure that's how many other viewers feel, too). I stopped watching the show, and does not intend to even peek during the shows. I'd rather spend my precious time watching other shows, which will provide me with genuine fun and entertainment. I lost my trust with the voting system, the judges and the show as a whole.

    The Palins are all about "The Win".
    Actually having the ability to do the thing that they are competing for isn't necessary to them. Bristol couldn't dance and Sarah couldn't govern Alaska.
    No Problem! She really wasn't interested in doing the job anyway. The only thing that counts is WINNING!
    Sarah thinks she wants to win the presidency now.
    She doesn't even consider what the job would be like if she got in.... G-d help us.

    Bristol Palins comments ( winning would mean giving the finger to people who hate her and her mom). Real class, right. I am not surprised. These comments are comments made by low class trash. I don't care how much money you make, the Palins perception is that of a bunch of ignoramous hillbillies. These are the people who want to represent the American people? No one in politics that I can recall whose aspiration to run for president has ever behaved like these people. You can say what you want about Obama's politics, but you have NEVER heard them say or behave in this way. If you have prove it>

    Glad Jennifer won, and we triumphed over the Palins! Too bad Bristol had to be used by program and network and her fans in all this mess.
    Just clarification on article: first dance last night. Jennifer did not receive perfect 10s. The three were ranked, with top getting 10, second 9, third 8. That is a very different statement and loses the implication that Jen did not deserve perfect scores.

    When defending her "right" to be in the finals Bristol referred to the "haters out there" as those "attacking her".

    They weren't "haters" Bristol – they were simply telling you the truth that although you progressed technically and we all saw and were happy at the personal growth (maturing a little) – you were not at the level of several of those "the voters" dismissed before you and given your consistently LOWER scores – how is it that YOU did not know you were not at their level? Why blame "haters" – WHEN FOR THE MOST PART – no one was "hating' you progress either in dancing skills OR your maturing right before our eyes.

    Time to start viewing things through a different "filter" Bristol and that means developing your own – not your mother's (no disrespect intended but that is as it IS)

    I was happy that Jennifer and Derek won; their dances were beautiful, packed with all sorts of different moves, and Jennifer held her own with Derek and didn't just let him handle all the smooth moves like some did. I absolutely loved their free style dance to music from dirty dancing.....that was great and her waltz fabulous – she has such good lines with her legs and a lot of grace and her Pasa Doble was so much better than her first one.

    Someone said they didn't think Sarah was there to watch Bristol but I really thought I saw her in the audience. No matter. Bristol came a long way from not knowing how to dance a step to the last performances; she might have scored better if their free-style hadn't been to a song strongly associated with Bob Fosse's choreography; that was a little ambitious especially for someone still in the throes of learning to dance. She improved greatly over the course of the season and I was glad she got some recognition for that; and no, I am not a Palin fan – far from it, but doing all that was hard work and all the stars that did it get my admiration for sticking it out as long as they did. I think Dancing with the Stars ought to have a second sort of prize for people like Bristol and the sports guys who were so out of their element trying to dance – Most Improved Dancer. It would be interesting to see who the judges would have picked for it. I was just sorry when Rick Fox and Curt of football fame got cut – they had both just performed their best dance too when they were cut. They added a lot to the show and were such gentlemen – very very classy.

    501 comments? Really?! I'm not going to say anything negative because I didn't even watch the show this season. However, I don't believe Bristol Palin was a good enough dancer to stay on the show all the way to the finals. I do agree with whoever stated that just because Jennifer Grey had some dance training for her role in 'Dirty Dancing', that does not in any way make her a professional dancer. I was on the dance team in high school and I can dance decently but I am definitely not even close to a professional. I have nothing personal against Bristol Palin and I really shouldn't even say anything because I didn't watch the show.

    How incredibly STUPID and partisan-blinded some of those commenting are!

    Grey is 50 and learned __ONE DANCE__ for "Dirty Dancing" all those decades ago and you want to say she was a "ringer" compared with Bristol?? Not....

    The very worst thing that could have happened for Bristol is to have won – BECAUSE – if carried along by partisan voters she would be taught that doing the right thing (voting a better dancer the trophy much less voted Bristol off earlier) was not important as long as partisan-based-goals were accomplished – PLUS – she would have had to contend with knowing that most of the country viewed her "victory" as won but NOT EARNED!

    Bristol deserves all the credit in the world for jumping in her truck and "giving it a go". She grew in maturity as well as physical dance skills. Both will serve her the rest of her life. But sadly not even SHE seemed to fathom that she was NOT as good as several of those who were voted off before her – obviously by fans of her mother and as if trying to send Sarah a message that all that support was going to be out there if she runs for President.

    And on that matter – no comment. Don't want to take any credit away from Bristol that is due on her own merits and growth on the program.

    It seems like so many people posting don't understand – there are those of us who just want to see great dancing. And we want to see the best dancer win, and the best dancers stick around. Whether you judge that by the best dancer (Jennifer) or the most improved (Kyle), you want to see the best. I believe that's the point of the show. I don't care about politics or favoritism – in this realm. I do pay attention to politics, just not on DWTS. I don't want to see someone win the biggest prize who couldn't even get one single 10 on the entire season. That, to me, doesn't deserve to take home the trophy. It has nothing to do with liking or disliking her – it's about who deserves to win. That is what is frustrating to many of us – is the politics being encouraged.

    Everyone is being ridiculous about Dancing with the Stars. The tea party DID NOT help Bristol Palin make it to the finals of Dancing with the Stars. Dancing with the Stars is a reality TV show about dancing, not politics. Maybe Bristol should not have been in the finals, but that's what happened and that's the way people voted. Bristol is not a performer or athlete. She is the daughter of a politician. If anyone wanted to see a normal, every day person on Dancing with the Stars then take a look. She was truly an underdog and I commend her efforts.

    Well, I'm a Liberal Momma Palin hater, but I though Bristol did pretty well. She really grew though out the season.

    All of you realize that allowing Palin to get as far as she did got a lot of media attention for the show. Then they make sure that she wouldnt go any farther by not using votes to keep her on the show.

    What the show did was capitalize on the attention Palin got, as many people tuned in just to see if she would win or not. Clever marketing is what i think.

    First of all, Jennifer is a good dancer and we all expected her to win. She was a pro from Dirty Dancing. But what’s with all the negativity toward Bristol? You guys VOTED her to third place! She beat every other dancer there except Kyle and Jennifer, despite not having much exposer and despite not knowing how to shake her booty. You all need to stop tearing her down!

    A star is someone the public has viewed in their chosen profession, someone who is known to the public as an achiever. It was embarrassing for America to have Bristol on this show, equally embarrassing was the willingness of the born again fringe to vote for her despite her lack of talent.

    There is NO way Jennifer whatshername danced with a ruptured disc. NO WAY, I DON'T CARE WHAT SHE STATED OR WHAT IS BEING REPORTED. Four years ago I suffered 3 herniated discs and it was the most UNGODLY pain I had ever experienced in my life. And these discs were herniated NOT ruptured. A ruptured disc is an emergency surgery situation and you would NOT be out there dancing. She may have pulled a muscle from the dancing but NOT dancing with a disc ruptured in her back.

    Come on, use some common sense when reporting something; just because she is who she is doesn't give her super-human strength or an unbelievable pain threshold where she wouldn't feel the pain or just pop a couple Tylenol and hit the dance floor.

    What is all the fuss? The best dancers won, and it wasn't due to or in defiance of any Tea Party conspiracy. I am simply amazed by all the hateful rhetoric on this blog against Bristol Palin and the Tea Party. Just because Bristol Palin was one of the contestants, people assumed all sorts of political motivations and conspiracies. Bristol is not running for any office. She's not worldly; she's a 19 year old teenage girl from Alaska. Imagine youself in the same situation. What would you do? How would you feel? With only 19 years of experience in the world, how could one possibly have the maturity to react any better or differently to some of the unbelievably hateful and cruel things that Bristol experienced? My God, this was just a television DANCING SHOW! So congratulations to the talented and deserving winners! Jennifer Gray was AMAZING. Kyle Massey was so much fun to watch and came across as a genuine and likable guy. And Bristol did her best, all things considered. Anyway, it was a fun season and I'm looking forward to the next.

    Here's the deal. Just because someone makes a comment about Palin, doesn't mean that said person is not interested in or concerned about more important world events. For example, I'm paying attention to what North Korea is up to and our (as in, the U.S.'s) potential responses. At the same time, I like to know the latest news in the NFL, and how some fatty who got knocked up at 17 could possibly be considered a spokesperson for abstinence or a celebrity. I also saw highlights of her "dancing" and wonder if she is pregnant again or just sneaking bacon cheeseburgers during the commercials.

    No surprises here – Jennifer Grey was slated to win and Bristol Palin was slated to keep people viewing the show. No surprises in the comments, either, the "anti-Palin" crowd vs the "Palin worshippers" – making all things a political statement and showing nothing but contempt for each other. In truth, the show is always fixed, and it was only the viewers that kept Bristol in to capture the #3 spot. She was neither the best nor the worst dancer, she showed commitment and the ability to improve, but had she been anybody else she would have been voted out a couple weeks ago. Sarah Palin has told DWTS producers to put Christine O'Donnell in the next line up, so there will be a new controversy for people to focus on, if Palin gets her way. Why not? Sensationalism makes for good tv, not facts or truth, not reality, not integrity. Sensationalism.

    This is suppose to be a dancing contest not a political forum. If Bristol thinks she is in the same category as Jennifer she is in the same dream w/her mother wanting to be president. The show itself did not make this a political forum the voters did. Bristol keeps saying that it has to with people not liking her mother, no, it has to do w/the fact that she can't dance. She needs to look at the tapes of the show. Does this mean for the rest of her life she will be using her mother as excuse for everything, get over it, you just can't dance. Maybe she should have thought of her mother before she got pregnant. Didn't hear Brandy whining about getting kicked off the show or anyone else. Get over yourself, your not a dancer.

    I appauld Bristol for trying. She was thrust into the spotlight and did her best. For such a young woman with NO acting skills & NO dancing background, she did great. I believe the viewers kept her in the game because she tried and was not like all the rest. Shame on all of you who have such unkind words for her. She is an average American Girl, she does not have the body of an actresss or a dancer. Why such hostility? What is wrong with you? Why so much HATE? Are your lives that shallow? I feel sorry for you.
    Jennifer did a great job. Several of the posts I read from previous weeks were unkind about Jennifer, too–they voiced their opinions that they were sick & tired of the weekly drama of her pain & injuries. She is 50 years old and her body took alot of punishment. With a ruptured disc, I f do not know if it was the wisest thing to jepardize her or no show. I know alot of performers push past the pain but based on her advanced age (compared to those in their 20's, 30's or 40's) she took a huge risk. With spinal and disc injuries, one has to be very careful. She gave it her all and I hope it was worth it.
    KIyle had improved so much during the course of the show. He is such a performer! He came so close to getting the mirror ball trophy.
    When all is said and done, putting bias, hatred and name calling aside, I applaud everyone who signed on for the show and came back week after week with their grueling schedules and perform so well. They are all winners in my book! We are so ready to put others down, we need to remember not to judge ANYONE (whether it is a game show, an actor, politican or our neighbors) until we walk (or dance) a mile in their shoes!

    Shouldn't Bristol be at home taking care of her child born out of wedlock? My guess is that she doesn't have too much experience being a mother, so she should be focused on that more than anything in her life.
    There is nothing graceful about her, and it's a joke that she's been on this show as long as she has. And no, I am not a Democrat.

    The best dancer won this season. To the comment about B Palin, it is true she was terrible and should have been eliminated earlier if not for the screwed up judging system that is only part proper dance adjudication, the rest being viewer opinion totally unrelated to dance and the shows own desire to create ratings from controversy. B.Palin also is not a star by any definition so should not have been on the show (maybe Sarah should have put her money where her big mouth is and danced herself since she can definately be considered a star, like her or not). Brandy should have made it to the finally. Also, having danced at all in your past, does not make you a professional dancer so Jennifer was righltfully there even if she was in a movie. For the record Patrick S., was a professional dancer and her teacher for the movie, so he couldn't compete even though he was also a star.

    First, I am so sick and tired of people using the race card everytime an Afro-American doesn't win. I am caucasian and I love Kyle. He is a fresh, energetic, positive fun person who I think will really benefit from the DWTS experience. He came a long way but I voted for Jennifer because she is the better dancer. Plain & simple. Race was NOT a factor so quit using that card. It gets old and boring after a while. Second, all this political hub bub spoiled the show this year. The finals should have been Brandi & Jennifer & kyle dancing for the trophy. DWTS took advantage of the Palinites. I do give Bristol credit for staying out of the craziness and just dancing. Third, Jennifer dancer 30 years ago and was NOT a professional dancer so cut her some slack. At 50, she struggled with injuries and danced past them. Congratulations Jennifer. You added beauty & class to all your dances. You deserve to win. I think 5 perfect scores says it all.

    This is just a tv show and no one should lose their life over it.

    You could not have Bristol win. Thousand of Democrats were making death threats and one of them would have acted on it if she won.

    These sick twisted hate filled idiots of intolerance and anger known as Democrats are the sickest people America has ever known. It is clear that a majority of Democrats today wish death to the Palin family and other Americans rights of center, if you have any decency and love in your heart you will vote against them for as long as you live. A Democrat vote is an endorsement for wishing death upon a 20 year old girl because you don't like her mothers politics.

    The DWTS crew learned a valuable lesson about Democrats. The amount of security they needed because of hateful libs is a black eye on this nation.

    Liberals do not hate Bristol or the palins. we dislike the constant focus and attention on palin and her family. a situation that Sarah has mentioned many times. if sarah can use her family to make a buck or to keep the media attention alive, that apparently is acceptable, but is not acceptable if Sarah cannot control or filter the coverage.

You're falling into their trap to stay in the public eye and extend their 15 minutes and make millions in the process. The comments I've read about tea party people being dumb and dumbing down America, and how only people who support Obama are the smart ones in this country make me laugh. You're all stupid! Liberals are stupid for supporting higher taxes and more government welfare programs, and conservatives are stupid for getting their panties in a bunch for supporting "don't ask, don't tell." I could go on and on about both groups have all their priorities out of whack. I say live and let live and keep your hands off my money that I work hard to earn for me and my family.

    Jennifer projected the worst, predatory personality, not to mention that she is quite stiff at dancing. Derek led the team by far. However, the judges were salivating over her which was the clue that the winner having been determined long in advance of yesterday's show. I do not believe that she deserved the win. Yes, Bristol is no dancer, but so is Jennifer. I would rather vote for Kyle and Lacey – they poured their hearts out, without a show-off and insincerity of the winner couple.

      Rob, it is a stupid dance show but it became so much more thanks to a true American patriot who has some serious guts.

      Bristol Palin put her life on the line to show millions of Americans exactly who each and every Democrat truly is. She showed Americans the truth, that almost every Democrat in this country wished her death, a 20 year old innocent girl having millions of Democrat wanting her killed because of her mothers politics.

      Thousands of Democrats made death threats and DWTS had no choice but to try and save lives. When their leader Obama says in an interview with Univision that every American right of center is the enemy, he feeds the fire of the intolerant, hatefilled, selfish Democrat who then wishes death to Americans who are not lib, and some of those libs act on it like that teacher in Alabama, the guy with the plane in Austin, and the guy who went to shoot up the Discovery Channel building.

      Thanks to Bristol millions of Americans have seen exactly who Democrats are and have been made aware of the fact that they are supporting evil and hate, endorsing wishing death to your fellow Americans because of their politics, if they cast a vote for a Democrat. A victory for the truth thanks to an American Patriot, thanks Bristol!

    Glad Jen won. To those saying she has a dancing background – she danced in a movie 30 years ago. Brandi has a dancing background, Not JG. And it's not voter fraud – it's voting fraud. Disney will make up numbers to keep people watching. Was it Stalin who said 'it's not who votes, but who counts the votes'.
    Disney gambled and had Kelly Osborne on last year, and she blossomed before our eyes! We loved it. H8Kate crashed and burned, and we loved it. Having a Painlin was like scraping a chalkboard, and we hated it.
    We now know who won, and I can tell you who lost – ME! I always watched, and never cared who won, or trusted the results. This year, the few dances I watched made me realize the magic was gone – I doubt if I'll ever return to the show. There's too many other shows to watch, especially on Monday night! Reality shows are like a balloon, to anyone but the brain dead. Once you smell how fake they are, the balloon breaks, and there is nothing left to look at.

    Dancing with the Stars is a wonderful show. You get to see people from all walks of life try to learn a dance,then perform. Each week should be an improvement and the best dancers should be the last one standing. This season was not very evident of that. You could see truly that hard work, dedication and the will not go give up was a small portion of you winning. This show revealed to americans that Votes really do matter. This should show americans how votes can change anything. That if people vote for an indiividual that does not mean they are the best. Jenifer deserved to win and she did. Just imagine if this coutry .expressed their opinion about Health Care for everyone in america. Brandii you were awesome!!!!!! People of America bring your votes to the poll.

    I'll ask again ... what did Bristol Palin ever do to gain star status? People in the entertainment industry and in professional sports gian star status by becoming the best at their respective fields. So what has Bristol Palin done to become a star? Become an unwed teenage mother? That only requires reporductive organs and ignorance on how to prevent an unwanted pregnancy. All she's done beyond that is traded on her mother's noteriety and that doesn't necessarily require a special talent. So, what has she done? What is her big accomplishment?

Who gives a rip over who wins? IT'S A DANCE SHOW, PEOPLE, and not a very good one at that, from what I've gleaned. There is a country daring the world to stop it (North Korea for those who watch DWTS instead of the news), a group planning terrorist hits against American interests, an economy Stephen King couldn't have dreamt of, younger generations showing absolute and abject disrespect for their elders, and THIS is what people are concerned with.

As much as I loathe Bagger Barbie and her politics, I admire Bristol for her perserverence and courage. My prayer for Bristol is that she continue to develop her self confidence and learn to let go of the emotional baggage she carries. To thine own self be true and let the chips fall where they may.

      Who said they were supposed to have no dance experience? All the athletes...dancing is really related to any sport where movement is important as is rhythm. All the actors have had some musical theatre experience. At the same time ballroom dance contests are a lot different in terms of judging than dancing on Broadway.

    Jennifer should have been the winner. I did not watch the finale last night and will probably never watch DWTS again. What I lost most confidence is the judges and their warped system of scoring. They are the ones that I really lost respect for. We can't get mad at Bristol.

    Although I must say that when I was voting "last week" I got one vote in and then a recording that I had reached my total number of votes from this number. I know that I had only gotten through once and most of the calls, I got a recording saying with the terrible sound saying that the number didn't exist. That didn't stop me, I continued voting, even after being told that I had reached my total, until I got through.

DWTS has gone away from what it is suppose to be about and that is people who don't know how to dance and improve every week. Can you compare Emmitt Smith with Jennifer Grey? I don't think so!!! They need to get back how it originally started. I wasted 11 weeks!!!!!

    Jennifer totally had an advantage and didn't deserve to win - she was an amazing dance BECAUSE SHE WAS A PREVIOUS DANCER. Jennifer and Brandy should have been on "Dancing with the Stars, when you've worked with choreographers".

    How are they in the same playing filed as Kyle? He so deserved to win.
    Palin wasn't even in the same league. She came a long way, but Kyle was so much better.

    BTW – to those of you who keep saying to leave politics out of this (not that her mother is a politician) it IS about politics.
    The only reason the unwed highschool nobody dropout was a "star" on the show was because of the half term. Both women have put down the President as a rock star and a celebrity and look what they both have become. The whole family is pathetic and a bunch of hoodlums (check out the track and willow stories).
    Neither one is a star but they sure know how to ho the money out of their followers/pimps.

I think people are too hateful, whatever happen to freedom of speech and the right to vote for whoever you think should win. What's the point of having people vote. Bristol, you are a winner in my book. This is the second time I ever watched DWTS. The first, was whem Emmet Smith won and now. ano one was bashing Emmet Smith then. Some people have short memory. Why poeple are so worked up over Sarah Palin is beyond me. Secondly if people wants to see professionals win it should be Dancing with the professional stars. On the question of you being a star, you are, because you are known worldwide, regardless of how you came to be well known. You came to fame the same way, chelsea clinton, the obama kidz, the bush's kids and so many political kids came to fame. So you are a star.

    I thought that Bristol did a good job for an untrained dancer. The complaints about what people had said about being a single mother made her seem like a whiner. Her single-mom-status & the criticisms directed her way had nothing to do with her dancing. Bristol's appearances, flitting from program to program, touting her nice-girl image is difficult to watch. If she wants people to get over focusing on her and her lifestyle, she needs to stop talking about it constantly on nationally televised programs.
    Jennifer Gray & Brandy in the final dance-off would have made more sense that Bristol's appearance. It was fun to watch Kyle. Bristol, hold your head up and m-o-v-e on with your life in a more private manner.

    I think more and more people are offended by Sarah Palin. Unfortunately, this translates to a certain distaste for her entire family. Bristol may be a fine person, but she definitely was NOT the best dancer. I think Bristol being in the finals was an insult to many people. She just wasn't good enough. So, both, as a political matter – the Palin's divisive politics, and as a practical matter – Bristol was just not that good, I think the best dancer did win – and that would be Jennifer. Not to mention, that Bristol getting knocked up does not make here a "teen activist" or a "star". But she is a media personality and I suppose that is enough,...

In the season Donny appeared, the judges said on the first show that he would win!! So, we never watched another show that season!! Why bother?? When Jennifer Grey showed up this season, we thought, okay, more of the same– they've jumped the shark! Even the d***med tea baggers couldn'y prevent what is written in secret contracts!!!

    As far as the show – never have watched it – never will. Having said that – Ms. Grey was on the show partly because of her acting, partly becuse of her family leniage I am sure (father, Joel, has long been a fixture on Broadway, most notably for Cabaret). Ms. Palin was on only because of her mom and her pregnancy which made her stick out in the media coverage of her mom – otherwise she'd just be another face in the crowd.

      You are so right. A lot of people keep saying the "conservatives", the "right wingers" voted for Bristol and that is how she stayed in. Well, where were the votes for all the "Hollywood" clan, the "pop singer" clan. Either "shut up", or "put up" next season. Bristol was not the best dancer, but apparently one of the most popular. A lot of dancers did good. And, as far as Bristol not being a star; she might not be a "movie star". But she is a star in my book because she made a mistake and has tried to let other young girls know what happens if a young girl has a baby out of wedlock and all the problems it brings. My definition of a star is Bristol. She's not a loser; she's a winner because she can admit her faults and move on and do her best to make of a bad situation. And, they called her – she didn't call them. I think DWTS has shown us that the word "Star" quality is in the eye of the beholder. Good for them for having people like Bristol.
      Bristol had the courage to compete and she did well. She was getting "9's" from the judges at the end. That was a good score. She's a winner. I

    well, at least was not Bristol I think it was fair enough. However it was admirable that she danced through the pains. We posted in our blog about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and an other divorce is in the horizon...

    Some of these comments are hilarious. First off, it's just a TV show, and the producers have made each of you react as they wish, which makes us all puppets. Secondly, the ones that claim that others who disagree with them are 'not worthy of voting" – according to who's standards? Two days before Thanksgiving, and so much hate. It's kind of sad.

    Why the hell are the palin supporters bringing up te fact the winner was in a movie 20 years ago???

    Maybe it's becuase that is the only argument they have against the winner. Boohoo... Seems everytime something Palin related loses, people go to the ends of the earth to come up with excuses.

    Not really surprised. If I was a pro based off something I did 20 years ago, Id get a trophy for peeing in my diapers.

      I think most everyone believes that Jennifer was the best dancer. However like the judges most objective people know that Bristol made the most improvement – granted she had the most room to improve. That is what makes her a winner as she worked hard and reached her potential as a dancer.

      And why do you assume that it is only the Palin supporters thinking this? When did Kyle become invisible in all of this? I personally think that Jennifer's situation is slightly unfair, she did come with some dance experience. I personally wanted to see Kyle win, he improved so much especially with his inexperience and lack of being in shape (he is still adorable regardless). He always gave his best and perservered with a smile. I'm not sure why more people aren't disappointmented for this hard working young man.

    I was actually hoping Bristol would win just to force the producers to change the voting system. It is totally unfair. Just a popularity contest. It should be changed to a 60% judges – 40% vote by public. That might created a system where the better dancers like Max & Brandy (my favorites) aren't voted off. They could have been the winners I think. Jennifer Is almost a professional and her dad is Joel Gray of Cabaret on Broadway. She came from a dancing household.

      The best way of voting for these types of shows should be to vote for the loser, rather than the winner. That way, if there's someone that's really bad, they will get the most votes and be eliminated. The current method for DWTS and American Idol means that the winners' votes get diluted, and you have someone advance several rounds that probably shouldn't.

      All of you who are whining about Jennifer Gray being a "professional dancer" are totally off the mark. Have any of you watched a movie being made? They have take after take to get the best shot. It is not even close to the same thing as performing live. Jennifer starred in a movie that featured dancing some 23 years ago. She had umpteen takes to get a good shot. Nothing about that makes her a professional dancer. I suppose that all of you that saw Avatar really believe in the skinny blue people, too.

      Second, Bristol definately showed improvement over the course of the show. However when she started talking about the "haters" & how she wanted to "show the finger to the haters" she really lost any respect I had for her accomplishments. That was very poor taste.

    Good recap! This was the 1st season of DWTS that I could not bear to finish. What a stupid joke they made of this program inviting politics & a very young, single mother who instead of raising her child was spending her time dancing. I won't even get into Bristol's & her sister's vile behavior on FB (she finds time to FB?). That alone speaks volumes on what & who the Palins are: selfish, divisive & obsessed with media attention.

      It's pretty ridiculous to say "Jennifer Gray had professional dance experience." She was a non-dancer who learned a few dance moves for a movie made 25 years ago–that's about equivalent to calling me a 'professional dancer' because I had to learn a few dance steps for a high school musical 25 years ago–please!!!

      I just watched the segment where the top 3 were answering viewers questions. There were a lot of "group" questions as to where each would answer the same question. But Bristol by far received the most "personal" questions. And, the questions were not "mean spirited". They were nice and wanted to know about Bristol. So apparently a lot of people respect her for what she did this dance season. And. Jennifer did not get even 1 personal question. I thought that was rather sad for her. It wasn't Jennifer's fault. Just seems more people are more interested in Bristol. She's a breath of fresh air.

    SOOOOO glad the Jennifer "Baby" train has rolled outta the station. I was sick and tired of her constant whining and injury references. If she were in such bad shape, looks like she would have had sense enough not to put her body through the grueling task of being on the show. When I had a ruptured disc, I couldn't even walk, so I feel real sorry for her. Kyle was such a showman and Bristol a breath of fresh air in a very jaded industry. Didn't matter who anyone voted for anyway in my opinion, the judges wanted Cry "Baby" to win from the get-go.

So who do you think might actually have more aches & pain here?? Bottom line is Jennifer Gray danced the sox off of Bristol and Jennifer's body looks a ton better than Bristol's too. That's just the facts folks.

      And BTW, Bristol did do her share of whining. Did you not listen Monday night when she went on & on about "people not liking me" & "the haters".

      Bristol whined about not thinking she was talented enough, or if she had what it takes to compete (and, admittedly, she had a point). Jennifer whined about being a martyr and dancing throught he pain every week.

      Oh, look at me being the good trooper, risking permanent injury and paralysis just by taking the floor... but the show must go on, so I'll keep dancing... aren't I so awsome for playing throught he pain like a good sport?

      I'm sure the two professional atheletes, who have both experienced playing with injuries, saw through that BS. If her knees, neck and back were anywhere near as bad as she kept whining about, it would have affected the fluidity of her movement far more than it did, and she wouldnt have been dancing near as well as she was.

      But she did dance great, and deserved to win. Just the martyr act got old.

Jennifer Grey is 50 freakin years old, do you people honestly not expect her to have joint pains, neck pains, etc. And just because YOU claim you've had the same injury and couldn't walk for days doesn't mean it's the same type of injury SHE had. Get over yourselves! She deserved to win! Whining or not! And don't give me that crap about she's already had professional dancing experience, that was almost 25 years ago! She's probably been a little too busy over the last 23 years to keep up her dance moves that she learned for a MOVIE!

      Palin president? Not a chance. It is statistically impossible. Democrats lead republicans in registered voters by more than 12 million and that margin is growing by 400,000 to 1.2 Million per year. Even if every single one of the 10 million independents voted republican, it wouldn't make a difference. Do a little research sometimes.

      The Palin's may be despised – but not because of any morality – but because of the division and harm they are perpetrating on the American union while they rake in a fortune. The truth is that Palin supporters are giving this family an influence and life style that they don't deserve, while they (the Palin's) threaten to "dumb down" the political discourse. I can only hope the American voter that supports Sarah Palin will wake up in time to understand that Americans can't afford a political policy maker that enriches themselve while dividing everyday Americans with silly rhetoric and foolish policy positions.

Of course any one who dares to disagree with you or your manifesto is labeled 'haters' or those mainstream media. That means anyone who ask an intelligent question that requires a intelligent and unscripted answer.

      Tom Bergeron said it all Monday night. 'Don't complain about the results if you didn't bother to vote." On Tuesday, he said the website crashed several times and lines were constantly busy with the heaviest voting in the show's history. I noticed that Mama Grizzly and family wasn't there last night. Bet all the rumors of death threats kept her away.

      I'm glad Jennifer managed to stick it out to the end. She really looked like she was in pain though.

      What are you people idiots? Palin's daughter clearly couldn't dance....was kept on the show for ratings and the political hoopla...she was one of the worst dancers on the show.

      And your vote against her could be considered the anti-Palin effect? Examine your assumptions and perceptions.

      @ Reason: Brenda's vote for someone other than Palin is not "anti-Palin effect." Before you exhort someone else to examine their assumptions and perceptions, examine your intellect. Your comment is incredibly stupid.

      So glad that Jennifer and Derek won! Could it be that somebody involved with running the show was a Tea Party member?? So sick of the political partisanship happening in this country! As soon as I hear partisan rhetoric being crammed down our throats, I turn against the source! Maybe if everyone did, it would stop. Why else would Bristol Palin be on a show that is supposed to be for STARS? I won't watch it again if there are any contestants that do not fit the bill.

      Yes, the right person won. But I feel that people with professional entertaining experience certainly have a big advantage over the others such as athletes and Ms. Palin. The last few years anyway some of the contestants seemed like they were professional dancers already. This year certainly Brandy and Jennifer had a leg up on everybody else from the beginning. I voted for Jennifer but I think part of the appeal of Bristol was that she worked hard and she was a non dancer in the beginning and improved a lot. Being Sarah's daughter was an advantage and a disadvantage depending on one's political views.

      Want to see a great dance movie? Watch "They Shoot Horses Don't They" starring Jane Fonda.

      Yay! I am so happy the best winner won Jennifer Grey! I would have loved to see Brandy in the finals as well.

      Well, I'm a Liberal Momma Palin hater, but I though Bristol did pretty well. She really grew though out the season. However, she should never have made it past Brandy. But we have seen this before with Donnie Osmond. He was a sloppy dancer like Kyle Massey but a great showman just like Massey. Kyle should not have made it to the finals either. I just couldn't take him seriously. He just looked like a fat dough boy.

      So, you liked the expected outcome. After the judges had predetermined how they were told to vote by the show producers. Don't worry about them losing viewes next season, they don't. If you were not wise enough to notice, they have been concentrating on getting more African American viewers. They don't want the previous demographic groups watching anymore.

      If DWTS wants ratings, try get Anna Chapman , the hot readhead Russian spy. She will set your ratings on fire.

      What won was the SAD STORY acting. I ruptured a disc in my back. IF she truly ruptured her disc, her real Dr. would have told her no way. There were no signs of pain or injury. Totally a scam to win the votes of millions. It worked. But I feel really ripped off. It will come out in the media there was no injury and only a pitifull ploy to win. Win at all costs. Just like politicians. Lie to them to get the votes.

      I scratched the show off my watch list about four weeks ago when Palin should have really been gone. I found the idiot fans that would vote to keep a non-talent like Palin in the contest just for the heck of it even more disgusting than Bristol's lame dancing. I didn't watch it last night, and I won't be watching it next season.

      I will never watch this show again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Some shows try to hide their biased opinions, but there were too many balls in the air, juggling at the same time, to know where they would fall, and if they would go where they were suppose to. Even the people involved in the show, and the contestants couldn't hide their discuss with Bristol. Thank goodness they decided not to go with her for the win. what a joke, of such a great show at the first......if it isn't broken, don't fix it.............

      My wife and I are also happy that the talented Jennifer won. Bristol is about as talented as a Lippizon Stallion.

      You must have special ways to vote since NO ONE EXCEPT THE JUDGES WERE ABLE TO VOTE LAST NIGHT. I am glad that it is over and Ms Palin came in in 3rd place. In the 3 groups that were dancing last night, I would have put her in second place but never did she do anything to rate here a number 1 place.

      I also feel the proper person won DWTS. I too, was afraid that I would have to stop watching DWTS if that spotlight hungry family gained an unfair win. She was a sloppy dancer, and it amazes me how stupid many people in America are that would vote for her, she has no talent except apparently on her back! Her mother is a Tea Party Barbie Doll & God help us if these morons get into the White House! They should take Barbara Bush's advice and go back to the boonies of the Northwest!

      I had no problem with Palin. She worked hard and greatly improved over the season. Of course, once she said winning would have been a way to give the middle finger to the people who hate her mother, I realized she – like her mama and sister – still have a long way to go to move up from white trash status.
