Tuesday night's results show was the last of the Dancing With the Stars season before the finals next week. Kyle Massey, Jennifer Grey and Brandy awaited their fate.
So did Bristol Palin, who seemed destined to head home after being outclassed by all of the above the night before. But scores mean little. Votes mean everything.

Bristol Palin is shakin' that thing all the way to the finals!
Astonishingly, the Alaskan will be joining Kyle and Jennifer in next week's final, meaning Brandy and Maks Chmerkovskiy got the boot despite great results Monday.
