Why Bristol Palin May Win Dancing with the Stars

There's no way to two-step around the fact that season 11 of Dancing with the Stars has arguably been the most controversial in the show's history, right down to the two-night finale, which kicks off Monday night.

Actress Jennifer Grey, actor Kyle Massey and teen activist Bristol Palin will go toe-to-toe in their final quest for the mirror ball trophy. But will the best dancer win?

"Jennifer is the best dancer," DWTS pro Anna Trebunskaya says.

"But," fellow pro Karina Smirnoff adds, "this season has proven it is not a dance competition only. With Jennifer we have the strongest dancer, with Kyle we have the strongest personality and then with Bristol we have the best journey. She literally drove five days in her own car to get here and learn how to dance. Fans develop a relationship with these people each week. You never know who they are going to like."

They're getting closer!

The final four contestants on Dancing with the Stars – Bristol Palin, Brandy, Jennifer Grey and Kyle Massey – are a week away from season 11's big announcement. And although they still have to face an elimination Tuesday night, when one of them will go home, and another week of intense rehearsals, all they can think about is winning.

PEOPLE caught up with each of the contestants and their pro partners following Monday's performance show, where they all shined on the parquet and had visions of mirror ball trophies dancing in their heads.

Dancing: Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough's 'Flawless' Night

The final four contestants shimmied – and shined! – Monday night at the Dancing With the Stars semi-finals, where each couple danced two routines. The stars were in the spotlight during their first number, in which each performed a brief solo. And Jennifer Grey took a giant step closer to the mirror ball trophy when she picked up perfect scores for both routines and earned a combined total of 60 points.

The judges dished out straight tens for the Dirty Dancing star's cha cha to Duffy's "Mercy" with partner Derek Hough. Bruno Tonioli gushed that their "execution was flawless," while Len Goodman praised the duo for their mastery of both technique and performance.

During the second half of the show, the judges once again awarded all tens for Jennifer and Derek's waltz, which Bruno called "a gem of a performance."

The closer he gets to the Dancing with the Stars finale, the more Kyle Massey likes the slimmer physique he sees in the dance-studio mirror.

"It's crazy to think you're going to come into a competition like this and not lose weight with the hours you're going to have to put in," the Disney Channel star, 19, told PEOPLE backstage Tuesday night after Kurt Warner's elimination. "I know I'm going to keep losing weight as long as I'm on this show."

Massey has had the encouragement of his dancing partner Lacey Schwimmer since day one. "He's lost eight inches!" she said of her ballroom buddy who has lost 18 pounds. "He's really loving it. He looks in the mirror all the time."
