It was a tough season. She had to fight pain. She had to fight injuries. She had to fight midseason tiredness. She had to fight what some was calling unfair voting practices. But Jennifer Gray kept fighting. She finished what she started and tonight she was crowned the winner of Season 11, along with her partner Derek Hough.
At first, there was some question as to rather Jennifer was going to be able to perform today because this morning, she ruptured her back. Luckily, her doctor was able to fix her up and she was ready to dance tonight. She stated she didn’t want to lose her chance to dance with Derek two more times.
Well, she didn’t lose her chance. She started the night off with a bang, receiving a perfect 10 for her waltz, the first dance she performed on “Dancing with the Stars”. The first time she performed this she brought many to tears as they remembered her dancing as her character Baby, in “Dirty Dancing” with Patrick Swayze. This time some people were in tears, because of how beautiful she danced and how hard she had fought to stay on “Dancing with the Stars” this season.
How did the other performers do?
Kyle Massey came in second place this season. He received a score of 26 for his Tango and a score of 110 for his instant cha-cha. This gave him a total score by the judges when you add last night’s score to this night’s score as:
Bristol Palin came the bottom place during the finale, just has she has in many weeks. She received a score of 25 for her Tango and a score of 108 for her instant cha-cha. This gave her a total score by the judges when you add last night’s score to this night’s score as:
Jennifer also received a score of 28 for her instant cha-cha. This gave her a total score by the judges when you add last night’s score to this night’s score as: 118.
It has been an eventful season. A letter with white powder was sent to Bristol Palin. Stars were eliminated before they should have been. Professional dancers argued with the judges. One judge made one eliminated star feel disrespected. Poor Jennifer kept injuring herself.
Yet, in the end Jennifer got to take home the mirror ball.
Will Season 12 be as eventful? Will fans still keep watching “Dancing With The Stars?”
