'DWTS': Brandy Eliminated, Bristol Palin Goes to Finale

Shocking results in season 11 continue their streak this week with a boot for Brandy and a finale for the lowest scorer.

'DWTS': Brandy Eliminated, Bristol Palin Goes to Finale
See larger image

Bristol Palin is through to the final round of "Dancing with the Stars" as Brandy leaves the show in this week's elimination. Bristol was again the lowest scorer on Monday's performance night but audience voting revealed she is much loved on the dance floor.

Bristol indeed scored her first triple 9s last night with her Paso Doble but her competitors excelled higher with scores no less than 9. Brandy scored the same with Bristol on the Paso Doble but she received a perfect score for Argentine Tango while Bristol earned only 26/30 for her Waltz.

"I don't know how I feel right now," said tearful Brandy who was stunned by the announcement. Co-host Brooke Burke said it was a shocking elimination, backed up by judge Bruno Tonioli who had expected Brandy to do a freestyle in the finale. He gave the singer an open invitation to appear on the finale anyway, but she did not reply.

The two-night finale on November 22 and 23 will now be a competition between Jennifer Grey, Kyle Massey and Bristol Palin.

UNFAIR! I'll never watch DWS again! Brandy should have been in last three.

Brandy did not have a good attitude. She always spoke as if she was deemed to be the winner - she kept putting herself with Jennifer etc. She was not well liked - she was too full of it - both her and Jennifer think that they MUST win. Glad to see you go Brandy. You should have been voted off before Cheryl and her partner were!!!

Oh, I see, someone you didn't want to move on HAS, so now the show must be just a 'popularity contest'. Interesting, kinda like when Obama won - oh, right - like THAT wasn't a popularity contest. Let's face it - life is a popularity contest - and not just when YOUR guy wins!

Politics disguised as dance competition! Is the owner of ABC a Tea Party member? This is a disgrace; all the camera time on Sarah unwarrented and disgusting. If ABC is trying to kill the show, this did it!

It has always been this way. When Mellissa Rycroft was dancing so well people did not vote for her because they claimed she knew to dance before coming on the show because she was a cheer leader and so the olympic gynastic person won - who, by the way did not even dance as well as Bristol is dancing - so stop being so bias towards Bristo;
posted by listen up! on Nov 18, 2010
It is a show for people who do not know to dance - to have an opportunity to dance with a pro and learn and the person that does not learn and perform as well should go home - so that is why Brandy was sent home. She did not do anything great!! I am not for Bristol or against her I am just being fair - Bristol deserve to be in the finals.

very happy and glad that brandy has gone. Baby should be the next one to go. She is so full of it!!

Watched DWTS from day 1. Disappointed with this season. Popularity does get contestants through, but by the time you get to the final three, it has always represented the "BEST" DANCERS at that point. NOT the most popular. I'll finish this year's season, but am done with the show after this year's farce. Oh, and I was a teen mom OVER 35 yrs ago (didn't have 2 nickels to rub together and PAID HOSP & MD out of pocket) So Bristol DOES NOT represent the AVERAGE teen mom. What teen mom gets the chance to be on a show like DWTS or have a mother who went from a worth of about 400k 2 yrs ago to over 20 mil now??! Sorry, been there done that, and had to do it the HARD way. (oh, and our dtr is now married with a Master's and has 2 beautiful children) My husband and I both went back to college and got our degrees AND paid out of pocket. THAT'S reality of a teen mom. No more DWTS after this season for me>

Don't be mad at Bristol - be mad at the show's producers for inviting her on! She can't dance - lots of them can't - she's better than Kate plus 8!!! Jennifer and Brandy shouldn't be there either - two old ladies using the show to promote themselves for their career and egos! Let's be honest, folks - most of these people are just a bunch of losers - why just pick on ONE of them????

Sarah and Bristol claim there has been no organized campaign to keep her on DWTS. Yeah, Right! Florence Henderson danced better than Bristol. Audrina, Rick and Kurt danced better. The Tea-Party Zombies voted en masse to keep Bristol in the finals. They are the walking brain-dead and they always follow the orders of their masters - Palin, Rove, Armey, Hannity et al. They voted for right-wing political purposes - not Bristols talent or skill. She has none. This was Palin Politics Plain and Simple-Minded.

I tried for almost 3 hrs. to vote for Brandy and couldnt get through. When I finally did they said voting was over. What is ABC blocking all the lines so Bristol wins? Is ABC part of the republican corporate media? Im done with this show. The Palins have ruined it.

bristol sucks period it is a fricken joke that she stayed this long. i do blame the judges that gave brandy 9s and then gave bristol 9s. they obviously were not looking at the same thing the rest of us were. since they are responible for half the score is they would have done their job brandy would have gotten 10s and bristol would have 7s.

I wonder if Brandy cried as much for the poor woman she killed with her Land Rover as she did after last night's elimination?

Let's go Kyle let's go! If Bristol wins, I will be very shocked. Sure she may have improved but she is not the best dancer. This is how I would like the results to end up next week: 1) Kyle 2) Jennifer 3) Bristol.

Cory, Palin does not represent most of America, including me. Everyone knows that she was the least qualified to move forward but managed to do so because of her mother and the tea partiers. Its just shows that they are dishonest people not voting for the most qualified. Everything with them is politics no matter what. Brandy deserved to move forward and everyone knows that but they cant let their precious Palins lose anything even if they arent qualified.

i think bristol comes across arrogant and fake. we have to vote for the best dancer not who we feel sorry for. shame on anyone voting for her to make a political point, its a dance competition.

Who cares?! People forget that this is a popularity contest. If dance talent was really all that mattered on this show, then the audience pov (vote) would not be asked. Case in point, their vote matters. If anything, it is the thing that matters. So, get over it!
posted by kevin on Nov 17, 2010
Bristol moving on to the finals is a disgrace. I suspect Sarah Palin supporters / tea partiers likely have a operation in place (much like a political campaign) to get the word out every Monday night(by text message, phone, etc.) to get their minions to max out their votes for Bristol as soon as the telephone number to vote for Bristol is shown on the screen. Forget about whether other dances are better (you don't even have to bother watching the other couples). Just max out your votes for Bristol and carry on with your lives. I think it's obvious. What other "star" has finished at the bottom of the judges' leader board 5 times yet made it to the final? What a disgrace! The show has turned into a joke.

This is a dance competition not who improves the most. Bristol has no skills and never should have been allowed to go as far as she has and she knows that. Derek face explained all and the crowd booed was word enough. DWTS is a joke and I will never watch again just like I stopped on AI I will quit this bullShit show.

Geez! You people need to read your posts. Some people are voting because they don't like this or that, but you complain about someone voting because of this or that. Holy crap, what a soap opera you are all making out of this. the best dancer left is Jennifer. But to the fault of all you who care about personality, looks, and a bunch of other garbage, the best dancer will not win a dancing contest. You people voting for something other than dance are STUPID!!!!

Brandy was arrogant and cocky. Jennifer is Sooo dramatic it's sickening. I like Kyle. Get over the fact the Bristol is in the finals. I couldn't stand to watch one more segment on Brandy and Max. I also don't want to watch one more segment on Jennifer. People with dancing backgrounds have a HUGE advantage on those that don't. This show is a popularity competition. End of Story. Do you think Taylor Hicks was better than Chris Daughtrty on American Idol? No. Who cares if Bristol has people voting for her. Isn't that the point to the whole show. Brandy had a built in fan base from her music, Jennifer has a built in fan base from "Dirty Dancing" fans, and Kyle has a HUGE built in fan base from his Disney show. Where is the outcry that Kyle is being "voted through" by all of the Disney Channel fans? It is amazing how much hatred people have towards the Palin's. This is a tv show people, nothing more, nothing less. It's just entertainment, and it has been entertaining to say the least.

Now consider this, we have a prelude to Sarah Palin running for office. If we don't shut them down now....she will be the President. Look at the implications that this has on the future, this woman has MAJOR support! So, don't be so concerned just about today's events, look at what could be.....very scary thought.

This show is an embarrasment. The judges are obvious frauds. The entertainment value was in seeing the dances get better and seeing who would win the night. No reason to watch this farce any more. Bristol should be at home watching her child.

Come on people. Don't hate Bristol cause she can't dance. Let people vote as the show promotes. The real problem that I see is the people voting are cheating, voting multiple times. Look out people, if we are not vigilant, Sarah will steal the 2012 presidency cheating her way through.

The people's dancer?!@!@ WTF. She doesnt represent me or anyone I know. And whats her claim to fame anyway? Tell me again, why exactly she's considered a star. That's right, she had a baby out of wedlock and a nut job for a Mom. Give me a break. All of the dancer's on this show worked hard and made an effort to improve. Race aside, Brandy was by far a better dancer than Bristol but clearly this is a rigged popularity contest and not one based on skill. She looks like pudgy slug out there and should have been voted off a long time ago. This show is a joke! Im done.

I do watch DWTS and have enjoyed it over the years. Getting a little heartburn over all the comments. Granted, Ms. Palin is definitely not the best dancer. She has improved. I watch, but don't vote. Since votes do count, is it possible that Max's big mouth may have cost them votes. I've always liked him, but his behaviour was less than gracious and gentlemanly when he got snarky with the judge. Just a thought!

I thought that DWTS was a show to take a nondancer and train then make them a dancer. Jennifer should not even be on the show since she was already a dancer. Her first movie was a dance movie. She is so arragant and the way she and Derek reacted last night on the show was sickning. I always loved Derek but he showed his real colors last night. The concept of the show is to take a nondancer which Bristol is and make them a dancer which it what she's become. I think the judges have been very hard on her at time but thankfully the voting public have seen that she is really learning to be a dancer. People say that the Palin supporters are keeping her there. What's the problem with that. They are viewing public also. I think that it would be a great thing for Bristol to win. If Jennifer wins I think it would be terrible since she was already a dancer and not fair to put her up against people who have never trained in dance before. I vote for Bristol to be the next winner of DWTS. She deserves this.

We have no idea what the voters are thinking. Bristol has improve some, but she is the worst dancers than all of the others dancers that have been booted off. Brady got the highest scores and a better dancer. Is so disappointing of the outcome. This has been the most disapponted elimination I have ever seen in dwts.. Brandy should be the one in the finals DEFINATELY NOT BRISTOL. Even the judges are in shock...bring Brabdy back to the finals...then the finale will be worth watching..

Has anyone forgotten last season and Kate Gosselin who went pretty far and was worst then Bristol yet she had many supporters especially Mom's. So DWTS again a popularity contest and people are going to vote for who they like not who the best dancer is. I think it is pretty pathetic to think that there is some consipracy from Palin and the Tea Party and that Bristol winning DWTS won't prove anything about the what the Tea Party or Palin is trying to do for this country. And yes maybe some Palin supports and the tea party are voting for her they like Bristol same as anyone else who might like Bristol or not. No one votes for the best dancer becuase if you had to pick between Kyle or Jennifer who would you pick there both good you would pick the one you want whether Kyle had scored to points less the Jennifer or not. Is it really going to matter.
posted by cathy on Nov 17, 2010
I can not believe what I have been reading here. So much nastiness and namecalling. Bristol is absolutely not the best dancer BUT she is exactly the type of person that has me watching DWTS this season. It certainly isn't much of a challenge to people that have a background in dance or are used to being in the spotlight to get out there and perform. But, a person that has absolutely no entertainment background coming on the show and starting from "scratch" so to speak is the one I find most fun to watch. The rules of the show are that the peoples votes are very important so it's not Bristol's fault that people are voting for her even if she is not the best. Grow up people. Can't you just accept the fact that maybe we like her for her!!!

A show that was just ok to begin with, just put a nail in it's own coffin. You just witnessed the death of a show. It's one thing to have the audience be apart of it. But in truly showed that no one really cared about talent. There have been people on there that I hate...but they really worked and pulled it together and did well..I respect that...Bristol is not one of those people. I refuse to watch the finals nor any future DWTS's a joke.

I suspect this is "Operation Redneck Revenge" against Hollywood. You know how conservatives always diss Hollywood and it's "liberal elites". Now they see a chance to embarrass Hollywood by having Bristol advance to the finals (and maybe even win) simply because she's the daughter of a Tea Partier. If so, that's about as petty as you can get.

I wonder if Brandy cried as much for the poor woman she killed with her Land Rover as she did after last night's elimination? -------- Why don't you STFU, you callous troglodyte. That has nothing to do with her being eliminated unjustifiably. You people are so full of hate and are always quick to bring up someone's past like you're above reproach and have never done anything wrong in life that you've regretted. The fact is Bristol Palin is a fat talentless cow who is succeeding because of who her mother is and who she is affiliated with. Get a life b@%tch.

Wow, there has been many surprise eliminations on ALL of these shows, but very revealing that all the political comments and whining are obviously coming from the liberal slant, this is not political but of course that is what it is being turned into. Good Grief people, it is a reality t.v., when superbowl greats win (and they can't really dance) where is the outrage then. This is entertainment and it certainly has been entertaining this time. If this was ALL about dancing then they would have dancers competing with judging guidelines and not audience voting. Wow, unbelievable comments. I wonder, those that are OUTRAGED, did you use your votes? Just a thought!

Vell, dahlink, if DWTS was ONLY about dance then Brandy would still be around. But it's not, is it? The show has been on for 11 seasons because of the mix of people, and that is only made possible due to the mix of technical judging and public voting. SO MANY of the previous years' contestants wouldn't have made it past the first or second week without some sort of public support. And, after all, it's the public that supports the show by watching it and allowing the show to sell advertising. If some of the stars want to win a DANCE contest, then they should enter a real dance contest where their dance skills will be the ONLY thing they can rely on. Like her or not (or, like her mother or not), Bristol has made by far the most progress in both dance and performance. THAT is worth a lot, and the public seems to think so too.

The show is fixed... and the decision to with popularity over talent has sadly ruined the whole concept of a dance contest. I think execs thought they'd get better ratings if they kept Bristol on the show. I feel bad that she's been put in such an embarrassing situation (not a dancer in a fake dance contest). I think this whole move has backfired - insulted the viewers' intelligence and after tonight's spectacle - many will not return to be insulted again... Not impressed and not watching any more either.

Half of this show is a popularity contest and the other half is a DANCE COMPETITION. So lets go over it...She wasn't the best dancer and she isn't the popular one her mother is hmmmm....the wrong person stayed in the competion, but hey thats the way it went down, but I don't think I can stand by this show any longer.

bristol cannot dance and has no personality.The judges sucked up to her mother last night. please rename this show because bristol is no star.She will win that I know so crown her now.Brandy you were cheated as was the other good dancers that left because of the palin power.

Why go through the dance routine just give bristol the trophy now. I am done with this farce of a show.Len even bragged on bristol' precision when she danced? What a joke Precision?

Why are people so focused on "who has improved the most" all of a sudden when for the past 10 years that really hasn't been taken into consideration? It used to be about who was the best overall dancer. While Bristol has improved, she doesn't move me when she dances. It's boring and her face usually has the same passive expression for every single dance. There have been past underdogs more worthy of the title "the people's dancer," but she certainly doesn't represent me. What a joke.

I was never interested in Brandy and Max and their performances - I am glad that it is over for them. I knew from yesterday that Brandy was finished!! It is a competition - there can only be one winner - the winner should be the one that has improved the most!!

carol, I am glad florence was voted off when she was - she tired to use sex and vulgarity to get the american people to vote for her. You do not have to lower your standards to try to get votes!!! Carry yourself appropriately and you would always be a winner!!!

I was very disappointed that Brandy was eliminated. I voted for Brandy on 3 different phone lines, and on the internet. For those of you who are disappointed, as I am, my question to you is: "DID YOU PICK UP THE PHONE OR GO ONTO THE INTERNET AND VOTE? If not, then, don't complain!
posted by Mii on Nov 16, 2010
Quite honestly, Bristol deserved some higher scores for her dances - compared to the scores "others" got!!!! She was dancing - she was dancing based on what she was taught on the show - that is what the show is about!!!.......

Go Bristol, go all the way, let the losers talk. You are the best this show ever had.people don't know the meaning of winner. They need to look it up. I hope you win the trophy. We are 100 percent behind you.
posted by Hello!! on Nov 16, 2010
I am no expert on dancing but from what I have seen - with regard to Bristol - it is truly what the show is about - someone developing as the weeks go by. Jennifer and Brandy did not improve that much because they already knew to dance.

Unbelievable and we all should have known this show is a farce when Florence Henderson was voted off because she was far, far better than Bristol. I'm not a Brandy fan because of her cocky attitude, but it certainly was not fair to her. If Bristol wins this, then this show will go down the tubes fast so let's keep our fingers crossed that Bristol doesn't win because then you know it is a scam.

Look it folks ... there are more people that dislike Sarah Palin than not. Bristol only performed at the best she could. The results are the results, Bristol had the highest handicap coming into this event. That being said, you all who T H I N K you know best... shut the Fxxx UP!

grow up America. The votes were in and thats that. When you put a novice up against pros, what do you expect? The show should either have a handicap like bowling, or not allow pros on. Gotta give Bristol credit. Even she knows what is keeping her in is her dedication to doing the best she can do. Lighten up and enjoy the show everybody!!If Brandy was smart, she would do the dance and tell Max to get meds for his PMS.

I hope Kyle wins. Brandy was the obvious winner. Bristol should have been voted off weeks ago. I will not be watching the finals. It is no longer entertainment. This show is all about politics. What a shame.

We get to vote for the conflict and ratings. If the judges did ALL the voting rednecks in the midwest and the south would't watch.

I'm so disappointed that Bristol Palin went to the finals on DWTS. Her mother has had alot to do with her daughter being on the show in the first place. Bristol Palin should have been gone along time ago. Brandy was one the most incredible dancers and scored much higher and showed the she was one of the best. Shame on Bristol Palin for not coming forward and doing her part by telling the judges that she didn't deserve to be in the finals. Go Jennifer & Derek.

I am so disappointed that Brandi didn't make it. It is obviously a popularity contest, not a who is the best dancer contest. I'm done watching DWTS. Erin didn't win last year and she was the most improved dancer. It has nothing to do with talent, effort, or who they represent. It's popular vote, not the best person wins.

That rotten dancer Bristol is still on DWTS!! This is a dancing show not a personality show. Vote the best dancer. I will never watch DWTS again.
posted by nelly69 on Nov 16, 2010
Okay. I admit that although Bristol is improving, she is still not to the level of the other dancers, and the judges' scores reflect that. However, America is voting (whether right or wrong) more on the likeability factor. Jennifer is over confident, whining, diva-attitude. Brandi made comments early on about the trophy that turned others off. Notice how once people started talking about Jennifer's whining that now she is positive and "working through" her aches and pains? She realized after they were in jeopardy that voters weren't responding to her.
posted by erin on Nov 16, 2010
This show never has anything to do with effort, it has to do with result. And week after week Bristol has proved that she cannot stand up to that level and should have been sent home long ago. EVERYONE puts in a huge amount of effort and it shows on the dance floor. Her effort, no matter how big it is, does not. She is a bad dancer with no emotion shown on her face. Her effort does not matter. Her performance does. And she should not be in this competition anymore. The fact that other great dancers have been sent home instead of her is appalling and makes me want to change the voting system.
posted by yougottavote on Nov 16, 2010
My heart goes out to Brandy who worked so hard and is just a fine young woman. Her dancing is stellar and I think the finale is really not that important now. We already know who the best dancer is, but now we have to watch one very good dancer, a good entertainer and blossoming dancer and a nice girl, but really not a dancer nor an entertainer fight it out next week for the trophey. Not me though. I am finished with the show for this season. Good luck to the 3 finalist.
posted by michelle on Nov 16, 2010
I'm so sick of people saying Bristol is there because of her mother. I despise her mother, but find Bristol charming. Brandy and Jennifer are really annoying, I would never vote for them. I think people like to see the chemistry between Britol and Mark. I understand people are disappointed, but why be so insulting of a young woman who isn't doing anything but going out there and dance.
posted by jude on Nov 16, 2010
No, Cory - what you are missing is that this is a DANCING CONTEST, not who gets "A" for effort. What kind of stupid show would that be? (and she has NO heart in her dancing). I thought Repubs thought people should earn their place by who's best qualified? What hypocrites!
posted by cat on Nov 16, 2010
What happened to voting for the best dancers? Jin and Brandy would have been great TV. I'm so disappointed all these shows are just alike American Idol not the best person wins forget about talnet it's about popularity, I'm done!

Vote for Jennifer and Derek!!! Most people, can tell Bristol does Not deserve to be in the finals but unfortunate she is. Instead of talking about her, spread the wrd and urge people to vote for the one who actually has both great technique and great performance: Jennifer and Derek. I love Kyle but judging on both technique and performance hands down the trophy rightfully belongs to JENNIFER and DEREK!!!!
posted by lolo on Nov 16, 2010
GO BRISTOL AND KYLE! it is not fixed and its not rating. It is us voting, we are bored of Jennifer and tired of Brandy's attitude. U can tell they are both not genuine, and are fake come on a torn ligament and your dancing in heels, we have heard u whine enough. And oh Brandy you life is so hard whatever try living like us normal people. I love Kyles free spirit attitude and personality, and Bristol is trying her best and improving, and if the rest of us were on thre that is how we would be. GO KYLE AND BRISTOL i will be voting again.
posted by Dancing Momma on Nov 16, 2010
I've watched every season of DWTS....seen some pretty bad dancing and some great dancing. Bristol probably fell middle of the pack this season. Do I think Brandy was the better dancer? Yes. But Brandy has an attitude and a feeling of entitlement that came across to the voting public. Likewise, Jennifer comes across as snobby and arrogant. The two most genuine people on the whole show are Kyle and Bristol. I think Kyle has Bristol on talent and he's very likeable, so I hope he wins. But I think people voted for Bristol because she's real. A real genuine sweetheart, despite what anyone thinks of her mother.

@cory She does not care about the show week after week. She has mentioned how she would just like to go home and be done with this show. She in no way in from can relate to everyone in america. If she worked hard and made a GOOOD REALLL EFFORT only then would she be repeatable. I am only going ot cont watching this show for the others that have made it to the final and not BRISTOL. god she should have been booted after the 2nd weeek.

The only reason Bristol is still there is obviously because who her mother is and the people who back her up - it's not because Bristol can dance to save her life - and today the republicans are so disperate to win over the democrates that they will vote for anything - I tried not to feel that way but and because her dancing instructer answered the Jude back -go figure. Brandy you should be there by far.
posted by cory on Nov 16, 2010
Here is what so many of you are missing: A HUGE number of Americans, Republicans, Democrats, and Independents, alike, are voting for Bristol Palin because they can relate to being told they are not enough. Everybody keeps talking about how she is not skilled enough, she not thin enough, she's not emotive enough...but nobody ever talks about her EFFORT! Nobody seems to care how hard she has been working. Well, lots of Americans can relate to that. In my opinion, Bristol Palin is THE PEOPLES' DANCER! And when she dances, she is dancing for all of us Americans who have been told we are not enough...that we're not pretty/handsome enough, that we're not smart enough, that we're not talented enough, that we're not thin enough, etc. If I have my way, Bristol Palin will win the whole thing! GO BRISTOL PALIN, THE PEOPLES' DANCER!!!
