Is a voting bloc of Sarah Palin supporters enough to give daughter Bristol the mirrorball trophy on "Dancing With the Stars"? Will Jennifer Grey's perfect score and superior dance skills land her the win? And how will voting issues at ABC Monday night affect the outcome?
The network said Tuesday that "a record amount of activity" overloaded its online and telephone voting systems after Monday's show.
"Some viewers reported experiencing difficulties registering their votes for the Dancing with the Stars finale, which affected each finalist equally," ABC said in a statement. "The issue was promptly addressed" and voting times were not extended.
Finalists Grey, Bristol Palin and Kyle Massey performed their last dances for viewer votes on Monday's episode, which count for half of their overall scores toward the title.
Grey comes into Tuesday's season finale in first place. The 50-year-old actress and her professional partner, Derek Hough, earned a perfect score of 60 for their two dances on Monday's show. Massey finished in second place with 56 points, while Palin landed in third with 52 points. All three will perform two dances on Tuesday's show before a new "Dancing" champ is named.
