Brandy broke down in tears as Bristol Palin controversially pipped her to a place in the Dancing With The Stars final.

The 31-year-old singer could not hide her distress after learning she and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy had been eliminated in the public vote - despite getting a higher score than Palin and Mark Ballas.

Shock elimination: The 31-year-old couldn't hide her disappointment

As hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke revealed she was going home, Brandy managed a wry smile in Palin's direction.

But when cameras cut back to the R&B star after showing her 'best bits', she had tears streaming down her face.

Winning a place in the Dancing With The Stars final was the latest in a string of upsets caused by Palin's popularity.

Will she win it? Bristol has been a surprise survivor in the competition

Sarah Palin's daughter has repeatedly been voted safe by the public, despite clocking lower scores than her competitors.

The 20-year-old activist and partner Ballas looked shocked after being told they had secured a place in the final - and their fellow finalists could not hide their surprise either.

Both Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough, and Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer, had jumped for joy upon learning they had been voted through to the Dancing With The Stars final.

But Hough's mouth fell open and Massey stood with his hands on his hips as they discovered Brandy was going home.

Despite a rumoured rift with Palin, Chmerkovskiy was gracious in defeat and said he respected the public's decision.

'People vote and their voices count, and I love the fact that the show represents that,' he said.

'I don't regret a second of the last five years of my being on the show and definitely not a second of me being on this season. It's been an amazing journey.'

Brandy, on the other hand, confessed: 'I don't know how to feel right now. It hasn't processed yet for me.'

Grey, 50, Massey, 19, and Palin, 20, will compete for the coveted mirror ball trophy in next week's live final.

I am not at all surprised - of the 4 she was the least appealing despite her good dancing.  Her constant arguing with Maks surely didn't help either.

I can understand why Bristol is popular - I thought Kyle would be the one to go this week.  Now that Bristol has got through I'm wondering if she can win - I had thought that Jennifer was a shoe-in to win
