According to CBS News, Grey (the daughter of Tony and Academy Award winner Joel Grey) and her partner Derek Hough performed a Viennese waltz set to "These Arms of Mine" on the ABC reality dance competition. The pair also performed a freestyle set to "Do You Love Me," which also provided the soundtrack to one of the more memorable dance moments in Grey's most famous film role, "Dirty Dancing."

Grey beat Kyle Massey and Bristol Palin for the top honors. She finished the competition despite having suffered a ruptured disc in her back the night before the finals.

"Dirty Dancing" provided the inspiration for a musical currently running in London's West End, which also played in Toronto in 2009.
