— Jennifer Grey is leading the way toward the "Dancing With the Stars" crown.

The 50-year-old actress comes into Tuesday's season finale in first place. She and professional partner Derek Hough earned a perfect score for their two dances on Monday's show — the final bid for viewer votes, which count for half of contestants' total scores.

Actor Kyle Massey finished Monday's episode in second place with 56 points out of a possible 60, while Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol landed in third with 52 points. All three stars will perform two dances on Tuesday's show before a new "Dancing" champ is named.

Palin said it was challenging to overcome the flurry of media coverage that erupted when she outlasted Brandy on the hit ABC show, prompting some viewers to question the veracity of the "Dancing" voting system. And her improbable run to the finals has been championed by websites like conservative blogger Kevin DuJan's Hillbuzz.org, leading to such an uproar that conspiracy theories are floating.

Though she said on Monday's episode "there's lots of haters out there that are waiting for me to fail," the 20-year-old single mom said after the show that she feels she deserves to win.

"We've been working our butts off," she said.

How would it feel for Grey to take home the show's mirrorball trophy?

Grey won't even consider it until Tuesday's dances are done.

"I think it's bad juju," she said after earning a perfect 60 points on Monday's episode.

Massey and his professional partner, Lacey Schwimmer, said they've been having so much fun dancing together, they can hardly believe they actually have a chance at the title.

"We have a one-in-three shot," Schwimmer said.

"It'll be crazy if we win," Massey said. "I'll be excited. I'll probably do the worm again."

The 19-year-old Disney Channel star did the retro dance move during his freestyle routine on Monday's show.

Though viewer voting is closed, each contestant will add the judges' scores for their two dances Tuesday to their overall Monday totals. The dancer with the highest combined total of judges' points and viewer votes will become the new "Dancing" champ.
