    He is certainly well trained in contemporary but his transition to do Jive wasn't as good as I thought he could be. The flicka kicks didn't have the snap retractions, and his pas de bourees were balletic, not ballroom. There was "hang time" which is great for ballet dancer, not good for a Jive dancer.
    When Len used his hand to show the overt sharpness, that's because he was reverting to hyper extending the leg to toe points to create a balletic line and that's not what you want for a Latin dance. His lyrical sensibility should be good for the Standard dances, and he's energetic, and obviously a fast study, that's his job.

    Corbin and Karina have Quickstep next. I expect this to be really good since I see his dancing style as lyrical, given his contemporary ballet background, so very suited to Ballroom. He's very light on his feet, nice straight back excellent dance position, that's what ballet training gives you.

    I may be in the minority, but I enjoyed Corbin and Karina's Paso. I thought Corbin was a bit underscored and deserved at least one 10. It was so nice to see someone come out and dance a pure dance with lots of difficulty. I really liked them this week and I didn’t feel any “desperation” from them; just hard work to deliver an amazing dance. Like Julianne said, they didn’t need any gimmicks. jmho

    I loved when she said that- No gimmicks, they just danced! That's why I think he will win this season. I thought he might of gotten a 10 last night, he will soon. I liked last week so much, that when I saw him this week I wasn't as blown away. But the man can dance. Oh yeah

    He certainly can dance and that's why I enjoy watching him. I know that's why Karina gives him the difficult choreography. I don't know if he will win or not because we know the best dancers don't always win. Sometimes they do and other times they don't. I know he is labeled a ringer which turns some people off. Yet, this season others have danced before as well. I don't care if someone has danced before because when people are in show business that's usually what they end up doing at some point. I know I have danced before, but I can say without a doubt I could never do hip hop. I personally don't penalize them for that because the show is called DWTS and I never heard a rule stating you must never have danced before. I just enjoy watching dancing and lots of factors enter into whether I choose to root for certain celebrities. jmho

    Most polls I have seen, have him in the F2 and winning. I just enjoy him, especially as I didn't know him either. Karina, I love her choreography

    Thanks to ilja I now know what the music will be for this coming week and for Corbin and Karina it will be Rascal Flatts "My Wish". I know not all people like country, but I love this song and it has a lot of personal meaning for me. It's a very pretty ballad. I am really looking forward to seeing Corbin and Karina do a Foxtrot to this song. Best of luck to them.
