    Re: 5/17 Show Discussion Thread **Spoilers**

    The problem I see most with the judging is that some couples can get away with performing a more entertainment rich dance over one that's technical and not breaking the rules, whereas other couples would get dinged for that. I think Maks might have been trying to go for that, especially since he seems to think it's bye-bye this week. Then there are couples who perform a more technical by the book routine and get dinged for not being entertaining enough. Sometimes it's a no win.

    And as annoying as it is, this is what happens semi's week. Everyone gets rave reviews, high scores. I hate it as I think they should all be judged as they would have been 5 weeks ago, but oh well. I guess the show worries of a strong backlash with fan voting. And again, look at the sources of who's giving the 10s. They like your shoes they'll give you high scores. I guess the show thinks it's better TV to have a really positive, upbeat good old time than have the judges speak the truth.

    I just want Erin and Evan here this time next week.

    The "bobble" was Maks' though. And Erin should not be penalized for Maks' error. Any more than she should have been marked down by Len when Maks took off his shirt in their Samba.

    You don't give a perfect score in semis when there is an obvious bobble. They should be upping their game at this point. I think judges want Chad out and upped Erin to try and save her. If he bobbled I bet he wouldn't get a 10 let alone 2.

    I agree, I but I also think when you see it you will also say it didn't deserve two 10's.

    Erik and Nicole up next. Guess we will see another 30 here.

    I'm sorry, but I'm finding Nicole's "Hah-vah-hees" and "ooh-koo-lay-lays" annoying.

    Maybe that's why he's had a bare chest for both dances? I thought it was excessive and he was trying to distract from his partner's shortcomings.

    I figure it'll even out because there have been dances where I thought they deserved 10s and didn't get them. I just want them in the finals

    I'll scream if Len doesn't ding Derek and the ringer for props. What does that say to other pros who get screwed for messing about but he doesn't? I really wish someone would point that out but they'd probably be on Len's blacklist and, since the pros are friends with Derek, probably wouldn't want to mess with him.

    The band deserves a nice punch in their mouths for that version of a Prince song. The screetching near the end by the lady with the stupid headpiece gave me an instant headache.

    Also... its funny that Nicole had to dress like Prince, since Derek obviously couldn't pull it off!
