    Sorry, I forget we have two Marks I meant Mark Ballas. And I'm sure these aren't the only 3. Also Tony, who thinks he's annoying. I had read a comment that someone this season was a terror backstage and was name calling some of the contestants behind their backs, and couldn't believe all the nobodies they were cast with (if Spencer Pratt was here he'd be my guess). My only guess would be Aaron, but the comment said that the person's pro partner was so miserable working with them, they were hoping they'd be eliminated so they wouldn't have to put up with them anymore. The comments came after the first elimination, but I guess it could have been Macy/Jonathan.

    Anyway, I think Mark could very well pick up steam. He hasn't being bad at all so far, and he's been very enjoyable to watch. The only polls I follow are Dial Idol and Vote #1, but I'm not sure where he stands in other polls or how accurate any of them can really be. At any rate, a lot of people like me who had never heard of him are jumping on the bandwagon, so I think he's got tons of potential to do well, as long as Lacey doesn't blow it. She's probably one pro I would put all the blame on if the judges call out the choreography.

    I'm very disappointed. I don't want to bag on Lacey, but it seems some of the Lacey fans thinks she's just not into it this season, maybe it's the injury she sustained, maybe its the album she's working on... but there were obvious coaching issues there that were missed on that performance. Hopefully she'll find the will to teach Mark, because he's a willing learner. I hate to see obvious talent underutilized.

    I'm not sure how much of that was for show, but she seems to be impatient with Mark in rehearsals. Considering that she had Steve-O last season who was determined to do things his own way and often disasterously, unless it's because she may not be feeling well, I don't quite understand a lack of patience with Mark who has infinitely more ability than Steve-O.

    I thought his routine was better than it was scored last night. However, I was not impressed with Lacey's costume. Whereas Mya's and Natalie's costumes gave me the impression of being seductive, Lacey's gave me more of a raunchy impression.

    I guess they really want to get rid of Mark. They gave them the Country Two-Step next week.

    While I have always liked Lacey as a dancer, I think her choreography is frequently not quite right for this show. I would have loved to see Mark paired with Cheryl, who does wonderful choreograhy, is a great teacher, and always brings out the best in her partners.

    I would have loved for Mark to get Cheryl..I think they would look stunning together. Not only that, Mark would get the proper coaching.

    Well they are off to NYC to the Food and Wine Festival on Thursday...I send them good vibes, and maybe a few tipples to take the edge off and have some fun.

    Fingers crossed for a good week ahead for them. I actually think the Two-Step might be okay. Lacey knows it, and if they are allowed some lifts, it might be half way entertaining.

    I think she is a terrible choreographer and her dancing is average (for a pro) IMO. Mark got the short end of the stick paired with her. She is also too edgy for the judges (especially Len). Her costuming is also questionable. I like Mark and think he would have blossomed with a different pro, but I also think the judges are underscoring him.

    Gotta say my worst fears were realized last week with that terrible choreography and costumes for the Rumba.

    Oh well, hoping she can do better by him because he does need a positive direction.

    I'd like to go to this to meet Mark..love NYC in the Fall..

    October 7th, 2009

    According to their twitters they're leaving this afternoon for NYC. Lacey has had to get more therapy on her hip.
