That's EXACTLY how I feel, Tia! You said it better than I've tried to all season!Originally Posted by TiaMaria62;3913705;Derek is a FANTASTIC dancer and choreographer...but it's just not fair that he ALWAYS gets a really good partner.
Nicole is beautiful and a GREAT dancer.....but it's just not fair that the producers put a singer/dancer in this competition.
I know she has never done ballroom before....but she is used to learning dance routines as part of her career. She is proficient at learning the steps, she is knowledgable about how to move her body and what her body looks like moving to music.
Compare that to someone with little dance experience, Niecy, or NO dance experience, Kate (although I don't think anything would help her) and they don't have as much experience or ANY experience learning dance steps or how their body looks and moves to music.
I think Nicole is terrific and I feel bad that she gets reamed, but it just takes away from the "spirit" of what the show is supposed to be - to me.
