Bristol Palin will be walking a tight rope tonight as she learns her fate on the Dancing With The Stars results show but RadarOnline.com has learned that she has "loved the experience" regardless of the outcome.

Bristol and her pro partner Mark Ballas received low ratings after her their jive to The Monkees theme song snagged the night's lowest score with only 18 points despite their hairy routine: the pair began their dance clad in full monkey outfits, with Bristol wearing a pink tutu. But as the song kicked in they shed their suits in the bizarre routine.

But even if it is the end of the road for America's most famous teen mom she has still garnered a lot of positives from the experience.

"Bristol has loved the experience of appearing on Dancing With The Stars and has absolutely enjoyed it," a source told RadarOnline.com exclusively. "No matter what happens with the voting it has been an amazing experience for her and she has really been encouraged by all the letters and messages of support she has received from the public."

As for the upcoming results show: "She is really happy about the way she has been received and she's keeping her fingers crossed for tonight's vote but we will just have to wait and see what happens."

The judges were kind to Bristol and her dance partner despite their oddball routine which has left them in serious jeopardy.

Following the dance, Len Goodman told Palin, "I would have liked you to have kept the suits on a bit longer!"

Bruno Tonioli told the 19-year-old Alaskan that her awkwardness was noticeable throughout her routine, while Carrie Ann Inaba said that the mid-song costume change was a huge distraction, evident by Bristol's sub-par performance.

"You forgot a lot of the dance moves!" Inaba reminded the teen celibacy advocate.

Pop superstar Shakira is slated to perform when Dancing With The Stars' eleventh season continues on the results show on ABC Tuesday at 9/8c.
