Dirty Dancing actress Jennifer Grey and her professional dance partner Derek Hough have won the season 11 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. Jennifer beat hot-favorite Bristol Palin to clinch the coveted Mirror ball Trophy during Tuesday’s grand finale and proved that she still has the same zing and charisma of her Dirty Dancing days.
The ‘Dirty Dancing’ actress and her professional partner Derek Hough were crowned champions of the US TV show after impressing both the judges and public with their routines. The couple – who consistently topped the judges’leader board – beat Disney star Kyle Massey and Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol to receive the coveted mirror-ball trophy. The 50-year-old star endured health problems throughout the competition and in the final she danced through pain from a slipped disc. She later dedicated her win to her nine-year-old daughter, Stella.
Here’s a big congrats to Jennifer Grey, sealed with love and fond memories of her Dirty Dancing days with Patrick Swayze. I’m sure these memories acted as a source of inspiration for her throughout the competition and played a big role in her win. Go Jennifer Grey!
