Jennifer Grey is the new "Dancing With the Stars" champ.
The 50-year-old actress beat out actor Kyle Massey and voting favorite Bristol Palin to take the title Tuesday.
Grey and professional partner Derek Hough earned a string of perfect scores on their way to the mirrorball trophy. The couple consistently topped the judges' leaderboard throughout the season, but Palin's cadre of voter support led to some surprising upsets, including Brandy's elimination after earning a perfect score last week.
Grey overcame physical pain to claim the "Dancing" championship, including an old injury in her neck and a new one in her knee.
