    Yes, it DWTS, not ballroom with the stars. I know shows like Strictly come dancing UK do very well( -The show in which celebrities compete in a ballroom dancing contest).


    Oh well, I guess we sit back and enjoy ( or not)

    It was introduced in its first season as a ballroom dance competition. I like most, not all, forms of dance, but ballroom is what I expect to see here. I think the other styles were introduced mostly to appease those pros that don't want to conform to the rules of ballroom.

    Well that a lot of pros that seem to like this then. I think the younger ones Derek, Mark Val are bored with the show as it is. I am interested to see what Derek does with Amber, given all the tweets about her size from the haters.

    I have never cared for break dancing? Is that the one where people spin around on their heads? I just don't understand how that is dancing. Each to his own, though, as the saying goes.... Overall, I like this show, so if they add that in and call it dance, I will abide.

    My take on the inclusion of the other genres of dance besides ballroom on a show called Dancing with the Stars is because they are current - this is what you see in videos, tv shows, and theatre, they are very popular, and they have now ( in the case of contemporary and hip-hop) been around for a good while - they are more than just today's fad.

    Oh brother, not already! I hope she shows them! (Derek is a great teacher and choreographer, so she's got a good shot.)

    I like her, but don't like him. I'm torn.

    Just a reminder that we do not allow the word "hater" around here. We have A LOT of posts going to moderation because they contain that word, so please do us a favor and cool it with the hater talk

    I don't dislike Derek, but I don't worship him either. I suspected that Amber would not be talentless or they would not have assigned her to Derek. All I want to see is one season where he gets a real dud, just as every other pro has gotten at least once, and find out what he can do with her. I don't even mean a Macy Gray or Kate Gosselin type dud, just a real non dancer like Martina or Monica Seles or Gladys Knight.

    Nasty tweets, not worth her being upset about he is a great teacher

    I'd really like to know how these pairings are made.

    Amber looks great the size she is...I so dislike when people criticize a persons weight...same thing with Kirstie Alley.

    The girl can move and I hope she does well this season!

    And count me in on the like/dislike Derek bandwagon...it's truly a love/hate relationship with that one, though I'll never deny or disrespect his talent!
