Jennifer Grey Named `Dancing' Champ

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.

    I agree with you Kay 100%! Jennifer "Baby" Grey did Patrick Swayze proud! I'm so happy for her, I loved Kyle also! They deserved to be in the top 2! In spite of her injuries, she did a fantastic job!!

    "Nobody puts Baby in a corner." Quote from "Dirty Dancing." Jennifer Gray did her profession proud. I'm thrilled!

    I think that all three were very good and I think that Kyle and Bristol came along way. Yes Jennifer did good to overcome all of her injuries, but lets face it she also had some dancing in her background were the other two did not. I think that everyone needs to back off of Bristol because she has not done anything to anyone. Just because you don't like her mom does not mean that you attack her. How would you feel if someone attacked your child because they did not like you? Have you every thought that maybe Bristol did not act more graceous because of the pressure that the public and media put her under by attacking her? People it is time to grow up and stop acting like a child. My hat goes off to Bristol and Kyle!!

    Way to go, where did you get that quote from? I never heard that one in Dirty Dancing.

    I've seen better performances in disco clubs at 1 A.M.

    So happy for Jennifer Grey!! She so deserves this great win!! Just wish Bristol would act a little more graceous in her defeat and stop being a spoiled brat!

    So glad she won. She was the oldest of the remaining three. She made all the dances look so easy. She also made Patrick Swayze proud. Like he said in the movie said NOBODY OUS BABY IN THE CORNER! Love it......always will.
