    Only because they gave out 8's where they weren't deserved. I think had they started lower- she would have had the 8's. I watched her again this morning, and my eyes were on her, not Derek, she can m-o-v-e.

    The girl can definitely dance. I predict she'll go far in the competition.

    After seeing these two, frankly, I'm wondering if Derek's headed for a 5th win.

    I think her weight may hold her back in some dances. She will be difficult to lift and contemporary may be tricky.

    I don't remember Val's contemporary routine with Elizabeth having any lifts, and the judges really liked it. However, I have already mentioned that I am not sure that Val has quite caught on to the idea behind contemporary the way the majority of them are danced - at least on So You Think You Can Dance. It won't take him long at all once he understands to be able to choreograph one once he has seen several on U Tube, I don't think.

    I don't know why we even have contemporary on this ballroom show- it isn't SYTYCD. I liked Val and EB, I didn't love it .The chest pop made me shudder, it didn't suit either of them .I don't think we need ballroom pros doing contemporary .jmho

    Why do they have Hip-Hop? That is an even greater departure from Ballroom than Contemporary, but I haven't heard anyone complain over the seasons about Hip-Hop.

    I didn't remember hip hop. I know Val did it last year with Zen, because that's what she was known for..( and yes I did complain and no I didn't like it) .It just seems to me, that there is a finer line now between the show SYTYCD, and this show. Valerie Harper would never be able to do hip hop, or Bill Nye. That's why I think its ridiculous I want to see Tango, and foxtrot etc. The rest I can( and have ) seen on SYTYCD -a completely different show with completely different choreographers

    It is supposed to be "ballroom" but the title is only "Dancing" with the Stars.

    If you look at the Wikipedia site which describes it and lists those in different "classes" I saw no Hip-Hop or Contemporary.

    I think they can have a special free choice show without an elimination but think they should stick to the legal/sanctioned dances.

    The Hip Hop and Contemporary is actually early "freestyle".
