's ok, Nemeses. I've said all along more Maks for me that way.
I agree that was not a very good freestyle, and elegant and sensual are both Laila and Maks' strengths, but they should be judged on the dance they did, not the dance style they should have done. Apolo and Juliane did one in the similar style,even a couple of the same moves, and the judges praised them for their originality and cleverness. Granted, A & J did a much better job of it. I understand that. But, a little consistency in judging, please.
Oh wait! This is Dancing with the Stars. What the heck was I thinking!!
I am a fan of Laila & Maks and have been from the 1st show. I am glad they made the finals, as that was deserved. But I am a realist, too. I think and hope that Apolo & Juliane will win. They have consistently shone in this competition. Juliane's choreography has been outstanding for each dance and Apolo has risen to each challenge. Plus, they're both so darn cute!
I guess the only way I won't be happy is if Joey and Kim win. A little too much flash and trash and not enough actual content. Cheesy and cocky are not a good combo, IMO. I refer to Joey. Kim, I liked both last season and this season.
Fluff: I am having a lot of trouble at abc.com, too. It takes forever, then it says, "Thanks for voting" and "You have 5 votes left." The number of votes never goes lower. I have no idea if I can vote unlimited times or if none of my votes are registering! I also tried by phone and after 3 confirmed votes, it says, "You have reached your limit from this phone line." I thought there were 5 votes per line tonight. . .?
Let me be the first to holler, "Conspiracy!" and "Vote fixing!" Just kidding!
