Tonight, Dancing with the Stars began its two-day finale with the season's last performance episode. After doing "redemption" dances, the final three performed freestyle routines. Predictably, Bristol Palin's effort—a Chicago cage dancing copycat—failed on multiple levels. Watch inside.

Here's Palin and partner Mark Ballas' routine—a slow, uninspired cage dancing imitation of Chicago's "Cell Block Tango" (she confessed beforehand that she'd never seen the play/film, natch):

And here are the judges comments and scores (Palin received a 25/30, compared to Kyle Massey's 29 and Jennifer Grey's perfect 30):

If Palin wins tomorrow—or even comes in second place—I will forever refudiate the legitimacy of this show. It's clear that Massey and Grey are miles and miles above her in terms of, well, EVERYTHING—not to mention Brandy, who was unjustly eliminated last week in order to make room for Palin in the finale (watch the controversial moment here).

What will ultimately happen? Who knows! But one thing's for sure: if Palin wins that trophy, televisions everywhere should be put on high alert for even more shotgun attacks.

Update: Naturally...

I just voted for Bristol on DWTS! She's enduring a lot & should be proud. It's shameful the way she is being attacked. vote-800-868-3407less than a minute ago via txt
