After a hard-fought battle against Bristol Palin and Kyle Massey in the finals Monday night, Jennifer Grey came through to win the 11th season of Dancing with the Stars. In a dramatic finale episode Tuesday night, judge and fan votes were tallied before Jennifer was crowned this season's champion.

On Monday night Jennifer pulled out all the stops as she played to her Dirty Dancing past by dancing to the Countours' 1962 hit "Do You Love Me?," which was used in the movie. She wore a pink dress and white cardigan that matched her outfit from the movie before tearing off the dress to dance dirty with Derek Hough.

Going into the finals, Jennifer's win was far from a sure thing. Bristol Palin's vocal supporters made a point of building a grass-roots surge in voting for Alaska's favorite daughter. Bristol and Kyle were both figured at 20-to-1 long shots at the beginning of the show before proving to fans and judges they were committed to working hard at becoming serious dancers.

Tuesday night's win marked a landmark for the show and for pro dancer Derek Hough, who became the first pro to win three seasons in a row on the show.
