Grey, 50, who co-starred with the late actor Patrick Swayze in the 1987 movie "Dirty Dancing," was named champion at the end of a two-hour broadcast, capping three months of weekly ballroom routines and eliminations.

Massey, 19, a former "That's So Raven" Disney Channel child star, was runner-up. Palin, 20, the daughter of conservative politician Sarah Palin, ended in third place.

The winner was determined by a combination of scores from the show's three judges and what producers said was a record amount of votes from the audience at home of more than 20 million viewers.
