I agree that I wish they wouldn't make the last few weeks so demanding. I'd rather see quality dancing over quantity. They did just fine in the early seasons by having the freestyle, a repeat/unlearned dance, and a previous dance (varying in some seasons, but I don't think they had more than 3 dances up until season 8). And that seemed to be the seasons where they decided the freestyle is the deciding dance. Just let them have fun. The fans already have their minds made up.
