    Well said! Honestly, I preferred their first dance to their second dance. But I had a feeling the judges would gype them yet again. I definitely think they deserved a 30 if Laila/Max got one. I think that the judges/producers bias is why I don't get so invested in shows like this.

    Let's not forget that this is really a popularity contest, as opposed to a dancing contest. There is no other explanation for Ian still being there.

    Or maybe, just maybe, people notice that Ian is a technically good dancer and vote for him because of that. I hope he makes it to the final 3 and I honestly do not mind would be eliminated for that to happen

    Ian has really benefitted from Cheryl's fan base as well. Both Cheryl and Maks have a huge fanbase of their own who would vote for Cheryl or Maks' teams no matter how good or bad their celeb partner is. I'm amazed sometimes, when I'm lazily surfing the internet, how active their respective fans are in 'getting the vote out'.

    This is first season that I have actually liked Cheryl. I agree that she has lots of fans and is talented, but any time I have voted for her it is because I think her partner is talented. Her personality bugs me.

    I totally think that Apolo and Julianne got robbed last night! They should have gotten 60 out of 60 if Laila and Maks did. Their Cha cha was awesome! Len is an old fuddy duddy and besides Apolo didn't make up the dance - Julianne did. It wasn't his fault if it wasn't a proper Cha cha. He danced the #@*! out of it. I'm sorry, but it is time for Laila to go - I think the judges are just scared she will knock them out if they don't give her a good score. Ha! (Okay that was a little harsh, but Apolo and Joey are the bees knees.)

    I'm forced to agree with him. I think I caught a glimpse of Bruno pulling bills out of his wallet and waving them at her. She crossed the good taste line on this routine.

    Much of the music (as usual) was appalling tonight. Forcing them to design routines around inappropriate songs is unfair.

    To me Apolo's quickstep was far superior to Laila's. Maks said something about sticking with the basics being harder than the flashier choreography. I don't really understand that.

    The way they were throwing around the undeserved 10's made them far less of an accomplishment.

    I want an Apolo and Laila final.

    No, No, No, Laila needs to go. She just isn't as accomplished in the dance. Joey is much better, as is Apolo. I really like her, but she's not in the same league at this point. I'm sure the judges will throw her votes, but really, the boys are both better.

    Isn't next week, May 21, the last? The final will be with three, not with two? It's a good idea, because 2 couples can't fill up the time, it's hard enough for three. Then you have first, second and third, which makes sense.
