    Oh well, its nice we all have our own faves.
    I agree with you about Gleb ... Gleb is taller too.

    This little girl is a fine dancer, but it reminds me of weddings where they dress up a child to be a "miniature bride" and the kid steals the show. (I don't know if they still do that .. but it's always annoyed me!)

    If I heard correctly ... next week's theme has something to do with "prom" ... puh-leeze!

    Love this girl! And I haven't truly liked a Disney star since Kyle Massey!

    just saying
    Oh I can see her winning this. She's got a big fanbase, bigger than I thought. She trended world wide on twitter after she danced, so there's no way she'll be Sabrina'd anytime soon. And heavens she's shown a lot more moxie and acutal dancing than say, Kellie. It may come down to Zen and Jacoby.

    I don't think her fanbase comes from Disney since that's never helped anyone before and I suspect she is not that well known. I believe she is simply garnering a fanbase based on her dancing up to this point.

    Yes, I would prefer her to have a younger partner but she has who she has and so far, I have been surprisingly pleased. I did not know Val had it in him. I really liked him when he first joined the cast but he let me down with his over-the-top antics last year. Geeze, I can't believe I'm starting to pay that much attention to the pros.

    It's really not the pros that I'm cheering for but I was happy last time when Tony finally won one.

    Yes they said that on another forum(trending worldwide on twitter) I guess I will wait and see.

    I see someone ( not sure who yet) with Derek and Kellie in the F2.

    Maybe, I am not sure who or why she would trend worldwide? nobody I know ,knows her, but she has a lot of kiddie fans, ( plus Maks fan votes for Val) she was at that Nickelodeon thing( val was the/her date)

    I have no problem with Val and Zendaya as a dance pair. Fred Astaire was 33 years older than Leslie Caron, 34 years older than Barrie Chase, and 37 years older than Juliet Prowse when he danced with them and all of them very very young. He was only 24 years older than Anne Miller, who was just a teenager when she started with Busby Berkeley, and Gene Kelly was also 21 years older than Anne Miller in Easter Parade.

    It works both ways, too. Zizi Jeanmaire was 24 years older than Barishnakov when they danced together.

    Oh, and Astaire also frequently wore spats, but that's another whole subject.

    I was tweeting when I saw the trend happening. I think she has international fans because she specifically tweeted them to vote. With an international audience in addition to Disney, Maks and Val, and the fact that she's sooo good, she'll be able to rival Jacoby. And Wynonna Judd is cleaning up in the Country vote. She's going to be around a long time whether people think she's a good dancer or not. She's the Marie Osmond of this year's competition.

    I had no idea who she was before the season started, but now she's my pick to win. She's absolutely adorable and a terrific dancer. Plus, I'd love to see one of the Chmerkovskiy boys get a win!

    LOVE this young-un!

    Yep, I've got her and Val pegged for the win, too.

    Also, I have to give special kudos to Val. He seems to be navigating the waters of their age/image differences VERY well. I'm also sensing from him a joy in terms of KNOWING what a jewel he has in Z, and dealing with that accordingly, taking it and RUNNING with it. I also believe he relishes being the ONLY Chmerkovskiy boy on the block, this time 'round, even though I KNOW he and Maks () are brothers and love each other.

    I'm waiting to see what'll happen when they start the steamier Latin dances.

    If these two shows are any indication, though, they'll dance those with class and aplomb, too.

    So far, this team feels like THE WINNAH!

    And think about it . . .

    Just how perfect would it be if --- at 16 years old --- she wound up as champion of DWTS' 16th season?

    You just COULD not make that up!

    PERFECT example of stunt casting by TPTB, if it happened!
