If you are a die-hard “Dancing with the Stars” (DWTS) fan, you already know the “Dancing with the Stars” 2010 results. For those readers who were not faithful followers the show but are interested in the outcome, here is a short overview.
What Is “Dancing With The Stars?”
“Dancing with the Stars” is a reality television series that airs on the ABC network in the United States. The popular dance competition pairs celebrities with professional dancers. Each couple performs pre-set dances for judging points and audience votes. At the end of each episode, the couple with the lowest combined score is eliminated from competition until only the championship dance pair remains.
Last year was “Dancing With The Stars's” eleventh season. It was filled with controversy as Bristol Palin and her partner, Mark Ballas, continued to advance through the season. Some viewers thought better dancers were eliminated and that Palin’s political supporters boosted her score.
First Place Actress Jennifer Grey and dancer Derek Hough rose to the top as the 2010 winners of “Dancing with the Stars.” Grey is best known for her role as Frances “Baby” Houseman in the 1987 hit film “Dirty Dancing,” opposite Patrick Swayze. Hough is a professional dancer, choreographer, actor and musician.
Second Place Disney Channel star Kyle Massey paired up with dancer Lacey Schwimmer to win second place in the 2010 "DWTS" competition. Massey is an actor, dancer, rapper and singer, while Schwimmer is a competitive ballroom dancer and dance instructor.
Third Place Winning third place in season eleven were teen activist Bristol Palin and dancer Mark Ballas. Palin is the daughter of Sarah Palin, former Alaskan governor and the 2008 Republican Party nominee for Vice President of the United States. In addition to professional dancing, Ballas is a singer-songwriter and musician for the Ballas Hough Band, which he founded with Derek Hough.
