CA was one of the Fly Girl dancers on In Living Color. She danced as a back up during Madonna's Girlie Show tour back in the early 90s (Youtube any clips from that, and while you may not be able to pick CA out of the group, you might look at her differently). I don't believe she or Bruno have any or much knowledge of ballroom, and if you watch either international versions of DWTS, or the early seasons of ours where lifts happened, she said nothing. If it was against the rules or a big issue, I would think Len and Bruno would point it out, too. Frankly, I think it's an easy way to dock someone a point if you don't want them taking over the lead. I feel for the celebs, because they aren't pros (most of them anyway), and it's something that can happen innocently. I'm waiting for the day for a couple to say screw it and just go lift crazy to shove in her face. I feel Bruno and CA's dance background if more hip hop/contemporary, or at least mainstream. Bruno danced in an Elton John video. Since he and Len also judge SCD in England, their inclusion makes sense. Not sure who CA got the job over.Originally Posted by hikari;4079630;
At this point, I think the judges and the show are over pretending to be fair, or making it less obvious what's going to happen. It'll probably come out in the not too distant future it's a TV show, they need the ratings, so if it means kissing up to controversial clunkers, rigging the outcome, and ensuring popular pros stick around and get praise for standing there, so be it.
