She landed in last place again, but Bristol Palin won the hearts of the judges yesterday in the finals of US TV contest 'Dancing With the Stars' despite a difficult week.

Ms Palin (20), the daughter of Tea Party favourite Sarah Palin, wowed the judges with a jive but came up short in her freestyle routine.

An envelope had turned up on the set filled with a mysterious white substance that officials later determined was talcum powder.

"There's lots of haters out there who are just waiting for me to fail. That's just going to give me more motivation to prove they're wrong," Ms Palin said in an interview on the show.
