    If I had to pick a "guilty pleasures" song, I think my song would have been It's Raining Men. That would have been fun!

    Oh yes, except I don't feel guilty about loving that song. I think it's great! LOL

Although I think the song was terrible for it (not upbeat enough for the "party dance", and too slow, although that probably helped her), she executed very good samba rolls AND bachacadas (when they dance backwards and shake everything), which I have not seen attempted by too many of the past contestants over the years, especially not overweight 60 year old ones with no dance backround. It may not have been the most exciting of the dances done, but it was a true and proper samba, well executed. I knew Len would love it.

    By contrast, Kendra's was a whole lot of very impressive boob and butt shaking, but very little quality dancing otherwise. I don't think it deserved just one point less than Kirstie's. She deserves to go, but I don't think she will. I suspect it may be Romeo, and that's why he was slightly overscored last night, to make up for his lack of fanbase (which I think will build if he is given more time on the show- he's becoming quite adorable, with his little black socks and dancing shoes that his father refused to wear). It will be a shame if that happens, but at least he'll have gotten a ten before exiting. I would say there's an outside chance it could be either Chris or Ralph; Chris because that dance was not great and percentage-wise, he needs 3.33% more votes than the leaders to catch up, Ralph because after such high expectations the first week, he's been a bit of a letdown and he really can't do sexy AT ALL. But the sympathy he probably got for the fall may save him.

    I really watched Hines closely last night, and while he and Kym have great chemistry, I don't think she gives him enough dancing to do to merit his standing as "top contender". In all honesty, as much as I can't stand the thought of Mark winning again, Chelsea is the best dancer. But I just can't bring myself to root for her over a woman who is three times her age and close to twice her weight, and has a far hotter partner. Sue me.
    I'm not so sure Chelsea is actually a better dancer ... she' definately has more versatility due to her age and weight, but does she execute better than Kirstie? Or put this way, if Chelsea were Kirstie's age and weight, who do you think would be better?

    I am loving Maks this season!

    The dancers are so close this season. I'm trying to decide who I would miss the least if they left tonight. Because they are all good, even Kendra poured it out last night, I must just pick the ones that I really am not crazy to see dance. It would have to be Kendra, (I have pulled for her from the start and she was one of my favorites, but IMO it's too little, too late.), Chris, (I have loved him too! He's hot, but he does have a musicality issue.) and Chelsea.(Good but annoying.)

    I really hope Kirstie stays. I'm not sure she can win it, but I want her in the finals. I also want Ralph to stay. Why does he look so frail and tired? His eyes are black and sunk in. I hope he's okay.

    All Kendra needed was the pole and the stage would have been set perfectly for her performance. She shook all that she could and she shook it well, but the rest of her dance was stiff and very undeserving of the scores she received. This week's dance may have been her best, but that's only because she was able to promote her "assets" thru "technique", not because the overall dance was good.

    Give Kendra a break. She is what she is & makes no bones about it. I thought she shook her little butt off & deserved her scores.

    I am a big Hines fan & I thought as previously stated, he's not getting the dance moves. I was disappointed with his dance. These people are literally working their butts off. There is no clear stand out.

    What is with all this dance instructors hurting themselves?

    she is what she is? classless? raunchy? whiney? it can't be blamed on her being a playboy bunny as we've got Hope on the Apprentice showing us that they can be classy. I guess you can take the girl out of the strip joint but you cant' take the stripper mentality out of the girl

    she has a lousy personality, that's what bugs me most and I'd be thrilled if she went home tonight.

    Regardless of who leaves Tuesday, it could be viewed as a shock. And there is a pretty good chance one of the favorites (whoever that is now?) could go.

    My main observation was the difference between Mark and Louis. Louis clearly was working to highlight his partner. You could see him minimizing his moves to make sure Kendra looked great compared to him. Mark, on the other hand, was dancing all out like it was a personal competition between him and Cheslea, which made Cheslea's moves look weak by comparison.

    I would think that if you are a pro one of the goals would be not to overshadow your partner--never kick higher or faster or sharper than your partner. (The judges mentioned this often years ago, but I haven't heard it mentioned in the last few seasons.)

    I'm not a big fan of Louis, but I have to give him credit for being one of the best at highlighting his partner.

    As far as others, Kirsti is interesting, but I think the worst of the remaining dancers. I doubt she will go Tuesday, but I hope she doesn't linger for the finals since there are some very good dancers that could use that spot.

    It seems like all of the pros look to showcase their partners, except Mark. I tend to think Lacey's guilty of that as well, though no where near as bad as Mark. I read that the team dances are returning next week (so I figure Chelsea/Mark's team will likely win anyway ) but it'll make me wonder if he'll get in a spat with the choreography with the other pros and not outdancing his partner. The judges have called other pros out for it before, so it seems hypocritical they don't with Mark. However, that was one era of DWTS, this is another.

    Chelsea is the only one I want to see go home, and that's because of Mark mostly (I don't personally care for her). The nerd getup has been overdone too many times on this show. I'll miss anyway else that goes at this point, but I especially hope Romeo and Kirstie are safe. I'd love to see Kendra last another week. Hines I'm 99% sure he'll be around next week. I've really enjoyed Chris and would hate to see him leave, especially because of one bad dance when he's done so well and proven himself other weeks. I feel Cheryl dropped the ball. And I love Ralph. I think the fall will help him get sympathy votes. I know it won't be Chelsea, so I'm sticking with my bottom 3 of Romeo, Kendra, and Ralph. Love them all, but I think it may be one of them

    I felt sorry for Kendra last night the way Bruno was acting with her. He takes it too far sometimes. He needs to keep it parked in his seat. I'm waiting for the day for Len to stand up and plunk him back down (or smack him one should Bruno hit him first with his flailing arms). I think Kirstie did a much more technical samba than Kendra, but with her song, I can see why she shook what she had. It made more sense and I can see where Louis was going with that. I felt she did a decent job with the dance, but with not seeming to have any fun the first few weeks, this was a good opporunity to bring that out in her.
