Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough win "Dancing with the Stars"

*For the first time since she was voted off of “Dancing With the Stars,” Brandy and her professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy returned to what many consider the scene of the crime for the finale Tuesday night.

The pair had narrowly missed a place in the finale when they were eliminated last week despite achieving a perfect score for their Argentine tango – only to watch last place couple Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas advance to the finals due to America’s vote.

Before Jennifer Grey was crowned the winner [watch below], followed by Kyle Massey in second place and Palin in third, Brandy and Maks performed their popular quickstep routine to the tune of ‘I’ll Be There For You’ by The Rembrandts.

Writing on her Twitter account after the show, Brandy said: “Tonight was a beautiful night!! So much love in the DWTS building:) Congrats to all the finalist and the entire cast!!”

In a separate message to Chmerkovskiy posted alongside a photograph of them backstage, she said: “You will forever be my champion!! Love you so much:)”

He responded by writing: “Baby, you never lost!!! 🙂 Love u 2!” He also added to his followers: “SEASON 11 IS OVER!!! Been an amazing ride! Loved every second of every season…….in hindsight 🙂 Appreciate all your love and support!!!”
