Bristol Palin is a Dancing With the Stars Finalist; Brandy Eliminated in Stunner!

by at . Comments

WTF. There's no other intro we can muster right now.

It's not anything new that Dancing With the Stars is more about popular support than technical merit, especially with mediocre, middle of the pack performers. But at some point, you'd assume the better dancers would be rewarded.

You'd assume wrong, apparently. Bristol Palin will be joining Jennifer Grey and Kyle Massey in next week's finals, with a deserving Brandy on the sidelines.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Brandy Pic

Somehow, Brandy and Maks will be watching, not dancing in the finals.

No sooner had we talked about how Palin's run personally irked Maksim Chmerkovskiy than he and Brandy got the boot Tuesday, despite great dancing Monday.

A record-high number of votes made it happen, too.

"One thing that I love, for my family, the choice they made to come to this country," said Ukrainian-born Maks, taking the high road, "the fact that people vote and voices count. I love that this show represents that, the people's choice."

"I don't regret a second of the last five years of my being on the show and definitely not a second of me being on this season. It's been an amazing journey."

Uhhnh, did Maks just pseudo-quit Dancing With the Stars?

Apparently millions of voters felt she totally deserved it, but one person on stage didn't look stunned, including Bristol herself and partner Mark Ballas.

Imagine if she actually wins this thing next week.

Can anyone derail the Bristol Palin express?

We know she works her butt off, and there's nothing objectionable about her on a fundamental level. But she can't dance. It's time for this to end.

All we have to say is that Jennifer Grey and Kyle Massey voters? You better be on your robo-texting game, because the Palin movement is no joke.

Call it a conspiracy, call it pure enthusiasm for the teen mom next door. Whatever you want to label her, she's one of the final three this season.

Does Bristol Palin deserve to be in the finals?

I can't believe it!!!!!! Bristol is a humble pretty girl. But!! she is not a dancer. I to am a advid dancer of this show, I think 2010 season is it for me. This show should be titled "Messed up dancing with stars" NOT "Dancing with the stars"!!! the show does not run by the best dancer it runs off of pity for a dancer who can't dance. Nonesense..!!!!!!!!!!!

I laughed my fanny off last night. Everyone of you haten on Bristol just need to get over it. Its a game show. Half the winners on this show were not the best dancers. All the winners and finalists have one big thing in common. They are likeable. Max and the little spoil brat known as Brandy were not. The show allows America to be involved. Its fun. America also loves the underdog and it especially loves underdogs that are unfairly maligned. It is entirely possible Bristol may win the whole thing because the left wing pompass knucleheads can't help but slam on Sarah Palins daughter. I for one have rooted for Jenifer Gray , but now I don't know. She's a professional entertainer and is only doing this to bring attention to her self and generate some future acting gigs. I just might start calling my Tea party friends and send Bristol some more love.
Its all too funny.

I think the votes are coming from people who are voting for the underdog, because that is how they see themselves. Like, What if that had been me? Even though she is not a star per-se, they asked her. Voters are votingfor her to stay. shoot the voters not Bristol. she is caught in the middle!

THIS IS THE REASON I DON'T WATCH THIS SHOW ANYMORE. THIS IS SO UNFAIR. BRISTOL SHOULD HAVE GONE HOME LONG AGO! MAKS AND BRANDY WERE TERRIFIC!

pop and hip hop dancing are nothing like professional ballroom and latin dancing. These are all different forms. As shown on sytycd, you can be great at contemporary and jazz, but miss the mark on latin and fox trot. Genres calls for different expectations and abilities. Brandy was not a dancer. Check her videos and concerts. She shimmed and shaked but she was no aaliyah who would be considered a professional dnacer. Jennifer Grey trained for one movie a billion years ago. She was not an expert by the end of the shoot. I have never seen KYLE do any type of dancing. Entertainer does not = dancer. A dancer is always an entertainer but an entertainer is not always a dancer. Bristol palin sucks. Lets just deal with it. She's just a regular girl who i am sure with the type of mother she had, took dance lessons at one point or another. So by the same standars she would not qualify either because she has had experience.

Ok let me make one thing straight, you all are saying bristol is not a star so why that why is she even on the show? Well the show is called Dancing with the STARS but the STARS are the professional dancers not the celebrities! & everyone should stop hating on bristol she's been working hard to get to where she's at so just deal with it! I don't think brandy & jennifer deserve to be on that show cause they already have experience dancing so I seriously hope Bristol Palin takes it all :D

I am stunned by the Bristol phenomenon. Maybe the show should change its name to "Dancing with the Cash Cow". This show is literally milking Bristol for every drop of Palin she can give. I predict that next week they will finally put her out to pasture.

Why is everyone so ticked off about this? Remember when Marie Osmond made it to the final three? There was no way on earth that she was good enough to make it that far, but she did. And I don't remember all the talk about conspiracies either. I do think that Max alienated a lot of fans by talking back to the judges like he did last week. As for Brandy, I've never seen a bigger drama queen in my life. Every week I wanted to see her go home. I think DWTS judges were shocked because they were grooming her to win from the first episode.

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
