Brandy Voted Off in 'Dancing with the Stars' Stunner

Actress Jennifer Grey, Disney Channel star Kyle Massey and surprise contender Bristol Palin remain to face off for the Mirror Ball trophy in next week's finals.

Brandy, who was reduced to tears upon learning that she'd been voted off, said she couldn't express her feelings on the results because they hadn't "processed yet" for her.  However, during an appearance afterward on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, she admitted that she wasn't expecting to be voted off, and laughed when the audience cheered Kimmel's declaration that the vote was "an outrage."

Palin and her partner, Mark Ballas, earned a reprieve from viewers despite earning the lowest total score on Monday's performance show.  Some believe that Sarah Palin's supporters have kept her daughter in the competition by swinging votes Bristol's way.

Grey and partner Derek Hough earned the highest score on Monday's competition and are considered the frontrunners to win the Mirror Ball trophy.

The final Dancing with the Stars performance show of the season airs next Monday at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time.

'Dancing with the Stars': Jennifer Grey, Brandy Share Lead Again

Photo Courtesy - Disney/ABC Television Group(LOS ANGELES) -- For the second straight week, Dirty Dancing actress Jennifer Grey and pro partner Derek Hough share the lead with singer Brandy and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, after both couples scored a 57 out of a possible 60 from the ballroom judges Monday.

Also for the second week in a row, Bristol Palin and partner Mark Ballas find themselves at the bottom of the leader board with a combined judges’ score of 47 out of 60.

Each couple performed two routines Monday: their regular weekly ballroom performance and an “Instant Dance” challenge that required them to choreograph a performance after learning the name of the song just minutes before hitting the dance floor.  They'd been told the dance style ahead of time.

Brandy and Maksim have a combined judges’ score of 36, while former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner and partner Anna Trebunskaya find themselves at the bottom of the leaderboard with a total judges’ score of 22 points.  Kurt and Anna were dead last in the individual dance routine, and were first to be kicked off the dance floor in the marathon.

Monday’s show also revealed viewer choices for the top 10 dances performed during the show’s previous ten seasons.  There have been nearly one thousand dances performed, and the number-one fan favorite is a freestyle routine performed by season two celebrity Drew Lachey and partner Cheryl Burke.

Self-described “teen advocate” Bristol Palin and her pro partner, Mark Ballas, find themselves at the bottom of the pack with an 18 out of a possible 30 after dancing a jive to the theme from The Monkees while dressed in monkey outfits.  Palin did have something to celebrate Monday: it was her 20th birthday.
