Perhaps the biggest news since the Jennifer Grey nose job– the entertainer is crowned victorious in the finale of Dancing With The Stars! Kyle Massey and Bristol Palin were in fact eliminated (placing second and third, respectively), so if you or anyone you knew were wondering who won Dancing With The Stars, the suspense is over. A just win, most will think, during a controversial and unjust season, but let’s be real– Jennifer Grey was in Dirty Dancing, so we knew she had it in her, didn’t we?
Bristol Palin’s plan was to “just go out there and just have fun,” and she claims she did, reports Michael Maloney with TV Squad. Meanwhile, Florence Henderson came back, along with other previous contestants, and said how being on the show was just a “great experience from beginning to end.” It’s good to see that everyone was just having a good time when there had previously been so much fuss surrounding the fairness of the competition, because isn’t having fun what it should be all about?
“We gotta ask… was justice served?” asks the poll over at TMZ. Lacey Schwimmer, partner of Kyle Massey, celebrated that all three dancing pairs made it to the finals… but most of us have our own ideas of just how those couples got there, and not all of them were deserving in the opinions of most. Schwimmer went on to say that they all got there “on fair terms”– what do you think? Palin added, “We all have smiles on our faces.” There could be noticeable differences in celebrities’ outlooks and those of their dancing pro companions, as concerns for the dancers may now turn to who will return for the next season
“We don’t know,” Margaret Cho’s partner Louis van Amstel stated.
In the end, all that seems to matter is this– strong at first and strong to finish was everyone’s favorite dancing “Baby” (whom no one put in the corner?), Jennifer Grey. At first she was topping the leaderboard quite often. And, despite a rough middle of falling behind, the actress still came out on top in the end (along with partner Derek Hough).
Grey is the Season 11 winner of Dancing With the Stars. Everyone else– including Bristol Palin and Florence Henderson– had a great little time.
As long as Ms. Palin was kept on the show, people were asking about the fairness of it all, and we want to know what you think too. Did Bristol deserve to be on as long as she was, and did Jennifer Grey deserve to win? As long as everyone had the times of their lives, we suppose it’s all good.
