    Re: Lil Kim & Derek Hough - Season 8

    If the judges are going to give perfect scores to a flawed dance, why even have judges? What's the point of scoring?

    I believe that question is asked following every show of every season .

    Actually, though, dance is subjective to a great extent. To me, a dance that is dull is far more greatly flawed than an exciting dance with a few missteps.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    That was an exciting dance, but with mistakes it deserved less than 10s which typically indicates perfection in scoring.

    I agree that a dance that is dull is flawed as well, and shouldn't receive 10's but there were more than a few missteps in her dance last night. I thought I saw her lose her place and have to look at Derek to get back in sync like others have mentioned. They both did a great job, and she is improving every week, I just don't think their dance deserved 10's.

    If we're talking judging for a professional competition, absolutely. But I've seen them give too many 10s over the seasons to dances that I considered to be coma inducing, as did many of the viewers who posted puzzled commentaries. So if they're going to laud boring dances for their technical perfection, I'm okay with them lauding less technically accurate but far more exciting dances, dances that are watchable and memorable, as well.

    Mistakes in Tony & Melissa's lindy hop were noted at the judges table. Like last night, CA and Bruno gave 10's but Len awarded a 9 for M&T and an 8 for LK&D.

    That's true - didnt Len say that their (M&T) last flip had a bit of a hesitation or something? Hence, the 9 but the others still gave 10s even with that mistake. Still, it seemed like Lil Kim had multiple missteps last night, but I am no expert at dancing!

    I thought it was a good dance, but NOT worth two 10's. It didn't look like a jive to me.

    the judges only see it once and from their vantage point only. we see something completely different on tv. that said, i loved the routine but clearly noticed the moments when it seemed it was going to go off the rails but then they caught it and kept it together. it almost seemed to be part of the routine. but, it wasn't. not sure why all the 10-love on lil kim last night but it was my favorite routine of the night.

    They did not deserve those scores last night - yup - it was fun to watch and etc..... - but it sure seems like the judges - other than Len - who was right on the money BTW - were not watching feet - but body only - definitely overscored - how does one get 10's with mistakes!?!? You don't!!
