Bristol Palin still has outside chance to win 'Dancing with the Stars'

Bristol Palin has a chance of winning 'Dancing with the Stars,' despite having the lowest score in Monday night's telecast. Tuesday night will see the crowning of a new champion, possibly Bristol Palin and partner Mark Ballas.

Is a voting bloc of Sarah Palin supporters enough to give daughter Bristol the mirrorball trophy on "Dancing With the Stars"? Or will Jennifer Grey's perfect score land her the win?

Grey comes into Tuesday's finale in first place. She and professional partner Derek Hough earned a perfect score for their two dances on Monday's show — the final bid for viewer votes, which count for half of contestants' total scores.

Actor Kyle Massey finished Monday's episode in second place with 56 points out of a possible 60, while Bristol Palin landed in third with 52 points. All three stars will perform two dances on Tuesday's show before a new "Dancing" champ is named.

Palin has made it to the finals despite so-so and at times poor performances. She said it was challenging to overcome the flurry of media coverage that erupted when she was voted in over Brandy — who had received a perfect score for her tango — on the hit ABC show, prompting some viewers to question the veracity of the "Dancing" voting system.

At the announcement on that particular episode, Brandy was speechless, and Hough's jaw quite literally dropped. The next morning, "Dancing" fan Kimberly Fishman arrived at her job at a northern California bank. She was furious at the result, and so were co-workers. "People were saying it's the tea party voting, that all of Alaska voted," she said. "It's all politics."
