I am still stunned that Ty wasn't voted off.  I like him, but Lil Kim is a vastly superior dancer.

Umm...Anna's dress tonight=STUNNING.
It was so unique!  I loved it!

BTW, did you see Katusha in the audience?

(Still cheering for Mayo though)

Oh I'm rooting for Mayo too, I absolutely adore him!

Okay, new idea--a drinking game based on the bad notes the band/singers hit.  We'll all be so plastered by the end of the show that we won't care who wins!  Cheesy

Thats the problem with this show, popularity means more than skill in dancing.  Since more woman watch the men usually do better.

Melissa's cha-cha: That music was so painfully slow I thought I was going to fall asleep in the middle of the routine.  Seriously, that's slower than they play for Bronze American Rhythm at comps.  That was practice speed for me...

We'll all be wasted within the first half hour we won't be able to remember most of the routines!

And there really wasn't a lot of cha cha in it!  Actually, I found both of her dances last night lacking.

Ugh...why couldn't they have given Mayo a decent pro to dance with???  Seriously...Kym???

And I couldn't believe what came out of her mouth when she made that comment about expecting the best from Mayo because he had to be top-shelf to be on DWTS.  Uh, Kym?  He is WAY better and WAY more successful as a pro than you have ever been, in any style. Roll Eyes

No news yet on our front as to when DWTS starts again....We have had one series for the year perhaps it will be the only one.

Can't believe the result.  The person I thought would be thrid, won. 

Who was the pro that won the right to come on the show next year?

I have to be honest that I wasn't that surprised by Shawn winning. After Monday nights performances I felt she had a very real chance, especially if you only use Monday night as the criteria. She nailed her freestyle whereas, Gilles was underwhelming because of Cheryl's choreography.

Anna Demidova will be on the show next year as a pro.

The last two or three weeks, Gilles and Cheryl haven't clicked as well as they had at midseason.  I don't know what happened there; it was still good, but a tick off of their earlier performances.  Maybe just fatigue? 

I still think Gilles was the better dancer and should have won.  It's funny; the conventional wisdom about DWTS is that men have a better chance of winning because more of the show's audience is women.  And there have been a couple of past seasons where a man won when I thought one of the ladies was the better dancer.  But this season, the opposite happened. 

I wasn't suprised at Melissa coming in third.  My DW rips her constantly for her footwork -- all toes, all the time.

I liked Melissa (except for the all toes thing) but she started to bug me as time went on.  Maybe she was just too goody two shoes or whatever after awhile.  I can't put my finger on it but I was getting tired of her for some reason.

She's too much of a cheerleader.  At least, that's my explanation.
