Jennifer Grey Wins Mirrorball!
The most unpredictable season of Dancing With the Stars came to an end with your votes ushering in a new champion -- Jennifer Grey!
Margaret Cho, Florence Henderson, Kurt Warner, Rick Fox, Brandy and The Situation helped Dancing With the Stars conclude its 11th season with a star-studded reunion -- minus a sick Audrina Patridge and no-show Michael Bolton. Yes, even The Hoff himself, David Hasselhoff, graced the floor to honor the most talked-about season in DWTS history.
But before we even had a chance to catch our breath from the opening, we were treated to a Burlesque show courtesy of Christina Aguilera.
In perhaps the best return of all seasons, David Hasselhoff got in on the action spoofing his first round elimination with a Baywatch-inspired routine complete with singing the theme song live! Yes, there were even babes in bathing suits.
It was all fun and games, but before a Dancing With the Stars winner could be crowned, Jennifer Grey, Kyle Massey and Bristol Palin had to dance two more dances to fight for another set of judges' scores to add to last night's scores and viewer votes.
DWTS: Contestants' choice
Each contestant got to pick a favorite dance from the season and perform it again.
For the first of their final two dances, Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer picked their favorite dance -- the tango. Massey was fully aware that he had to prove he was just as good as Jennifer Grey and by golly the little Disney star that could did his thing. To be honest, we don't really think anybody was caring about technique at this point. They pulled 26 points out of the judges.
Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas gave us another look at their fantastic tango. The couple argued over breaking holds, and in the end they did, so Palin could rock out on air guitar. This was a respectable showing from these two with an addition of 25 points.
It was up to the perfect moves of Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough. They went with their graceful Viennese waltz from the first episode. Her finale showing had just as much raw emotion as the original. Grey really did come full circle. Do we even need to tell you they got a perfect 30? You know they did.
DWTS: Instant cha cha
The instant round was so much fun they decided to do it again -- only this time with a cha cha and Pink's Raise Your Glass. This round was a free-for-all. All the couples had just a few moments to shake their stuff. We're not sure Kyle Massey's instant cha cha was instant. It looked rehearsed and ready to go. Jennifer Grey's hips showed no signs of giving in and Bristol Palin was on fire and saved the best for last. Grey earned 28 points, Palin got 27 points and Kyle Massey got 28 points to add to their scores.
DWTS: The mirrorball trophy
Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke first broke the sad news to the third place couple -- Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas. So, does that mean people were upset over nothing?
And then there were two -- Kyle Massey and Jennifer Grey. Was there any doubt that Jennifer Grey would walk away with the mirrorball trophy and title of Dancing With the Stars champion with her partner Derek Hough? You voted and we called it.
That's it, another season of Dancing With the Stars comes to an end. Were you happy with the results? If you weren't and you didn't vote, there's always next season.
