Jennifer Grey turned back the clock and a strong challenge from Bristol Palin to win the Dancing With the Stars crown last night. Congrats to a deserving champ!

Battling through a ruptured disc in her back and other ailments throughout the fall, not to mention stiff competition, it's a victory the 50-year-old will savor.

Does Jennifer Grey deserve it because of the physical ailments she's overcome and the high scores she's consistently produced, week in and week out?

Does unheralded, charismatic Kyle Massey get the nod thanks to the rare blend of technical merit and fun he and Lacey Schwimmer bring to the table?

Jake Pavelka, who lasted five weeks last season on Dancing With the Stars, can relate to Bristol Palin. He knows a thing or two about having two left feet.

While Jake's popularity couldn't match Bristol the Pistol, who made to the finals, he says it's great that she lasted this long - and she has a shot tonight.
