Skip to comments.'Dancing With the Stars' Finale with Bristol Palin Mon 8pm Tues-9 Live Thread! VOTE 800-868-3407
Posted on 11/22/2010 3:50:45 PM PST by Dr. Scarpetta
Tonight is the final chance for the three remaining contestants on "Dancing With the Stars" to impress the viewers at home.
As we've seen this season in particular, high scores from the judges may be nice. But, it's the viewers who matter because their votes can make an impact.
Going into tonight's season finale are Jennifer Grey, Kyle Massey & Bristol Palin.
Getting to this point wasn't always a smooth trip. There were some tense moments at the production office for "Dancing With the Stars."
ABC says a white powder in an envelope was delivered to the office this past Friday. It turned out to be talcum powder.
But, before they knew that, hazardous materials officials with the city of Los Angeles, fire department, police and FBI arrived at the studio lot where the ABC show airs.
This comes just days after the shock that viewers have put low-scorer Bristol Palin in the finals of "Dancing With the Stars," while voting off Brandy, who's had some of the highest scores from the judges.
Watch tonight's show at 8 p.m. and the results show Tuesday at 9 p.m. on ABC.

During the live shows, judges will give a score based on several factors, including technical execution. But the judges scores alone do not decide a couples fate.
Phone lines, text votes (AT&T customers only) & online polls will open at the top of each performance show so that viewers can vote for their favorites.
Phone & text lines will stay open for 30 minutes after the end of the show. Online voting will remain open until 11am (Eastern Time) the next day.

It will be announced at the beginning of the show how many times we are allowed to vote on each phone. Last week it was 5 times, and it decreases each week.
Try to vote at the beginning of the show before lines are jammed.
Phone Voting Information: Begins at 8pm
Online Voting will not open until 8:00pm
Go Bristol !
Vote for Bristol and watch the libtards’ heads explode.
After nine weeks of live performances, harsh critiques, one team dance, one solo, hours and hours of practice, pain, stress, nerves and exhaustion, we are down to the final three dancers:
Kyle Massey, starred in Disney TV series & partner Lacey Schwimmer
Jennifer Grey, star of the movie, Dirty Dancing & partner Derek Hough
Bristol Palin & partner Mark Ballas
I couldn’t care less.
And I like Sarah Palin a lot.
Last week when I tried to vote at 5:00pm PST, I got a message that voting wasn’t open for my time zone. So I assume it’s 8:00pm for the west coast too.
I wonder if I can vote on the internet at 5:00pm. Do I have to register?
VOTE and VOTE OFTEN..everyone put on your ACORN hats tonight and vote like a Dem. I will start voting online repeatedly using every ridiculous email address I could create..and I will call the 800 number as soon as it airs here(the phone call won’t go through until the show comes on in your area)
The liberals will, of course, be out in force to vote for anyone other than Bristol. But according to them, this would be cheating ...

are there any security for the online voting to stop ppl from voting multiple times? The left could easily overwhelm any votes via the online voting alone. Its also the easiest to commit fraud than via calling in and voting
Some Reasons to Root for The Pistol
As many have noted, Bristol, unlike her competitors, started out with zero performance experience in either showbiz or pro sports. In that sense, she began as the bottom underdog with many obstacles to overcome.
Anyone who has viewed DWTS objectively should see that her performances, overall, have been clearly better than at least half, maybe even as high as 2/3 of the original 12 competitors. Sure, not all of her dances have gone well, but she’s done superbly at times.
She’s worked extremely hard and improved remarkably.
Her performances, overall, have been at least as good as, and many believe better than, likeable Disney star Kyles. Although he, too, outlasted the more highly skilled Brandy because his fan base promoted him to the finals, there wasn’t even a peep of criticism against his supporters. All the venom was heaped on Bristol and her backers. Clearly a double standard.
Another unfair hurdle has been the judges’ scoring. Higher scores have often gone to those who’ve done no better than, and sometimes worse than, Bristol has.
In addition she is, to my knowledge, the only contestant being targeted by extraordinary intimidation tactics, including the sending of envelopes with mysterious white powders and death threats - all of which is designed to mess with her head and mar her performances.
She needs extra viewer votes just to help level the playing field.
While its true that some back her because shes her mothers daughter, its equally true that many hate and ridicule her for the same reason. The political biases on both sides cancel each other out.
Some say votes should be cast solely on the basis of who’s the most technically skilled dancer. Without doubt, Jennifer Grey is the most talented, well-trained and professional dancer of the season.
But this ain’t the Olympics, folks. It’s a dancer popularity contest (the rules say to vote for your “favorite”) and is set in the context of broader pop cultural issues.
So in addition to taking technical dance skills into account, it’s completely reasonable, especially in light of contemporary cultural issues and conflicts, to evaluate performers based on other criteria as well.
Bristol has lately shown the good sense, humility and moral courage to speak out publicly in favor of sexual abstinence before marriage. Rather than taking the easy narcissistic road of self-justification and relativism, she’s changed course and taken the smart stance. Even better, she’s working to influence kids who are being led astray by rejection of Judeo-Christian Biblical values and mandates designed for human protection and wellbeing.
She’s a Christian and a political conservative.
She’s demonstrated extraordinary grace under fire.
For any who have qualms about casting multiple votes, here are the official voting rules: http://abc.go.com/shows/dancing-with-the-stars/about-voting
Theres no rule against casting multiple votes.
In fact ABC’s voting instructions encourage individuals to do exactly that.
So have at it.
