Washington: ‘Dirty Dancing’ star Jennifer Grey has won the 11th season of ‘Dancing with the Stars’.

Grey, 50, was named the champion despite painful neck and back injuries and a voting bloc for Bristol Palin, reports Fox News.

The actress, whose performances were almost always perfect during the season, beat out last-place finisher Palin Tuesday on the hit ABC show and actor Kyle Massey, who came in second.

The dancing couple of Grey and Derek Hough consistently topped the judges’ leader board throughout the season.

Grey went into Tuesday````s telecast in first place and effortlessly remained there. (ANI)
