    Pointing that out doesn't really make people feel better about it, though. She's still gone.

    Maks asked us to vote for Woz and Karina--I'm sure I've seen it done before also. I doubt it changes many votes anyway.
    I was sorry to see 'Lil Kim go, as she was my favorite in the past few weeks.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    <sigh> You're right, and I understand disappointment. However, sometimes it helps to know that there wasn't deception and dishonesty involved.

    She gave it her best shot, and in one interview she mentioned how many new fans she has picked up - people who didn't know her before ( her words) - so I really think that her fans may be more hurt and disappointed than she is!
    She may have accomplished pretty much what she set out to do.

These people are very bitter, and I really don't think they quite understand.
    If you watch any sort of tv game show,etc the small print tells you that the show has the right to decide the winner. I am paraphrasing but in the small print it is there.

    Best dancers don't always win the show and the better dancers don't always make the finale either. It just goes with the show and happens just about every season.

    LK handled herself beautifully on the show and I really think some nice opportunities will come her way because of it.

    I thought she exited in a classy way, too. I'll miss her dancing.

    I had a negative opinion of Lil Kim before the season started.
    After seeing how hard she worked, how good she was & how much fun she was, I changed my tune.
    Her personality came out & I loved what I saw. She seems like a nice fun person with a good work ethic. The other dancers seemed to genuinely like her too.
    She also became an excellent dancer. I was hoping for at least top 3 for her.
    I'll miss her.

    There could conceivably ( but certainly no way to prove it) be the chance that the producers decided to let Kim go instead of Ty. Most of the polls had them very close together on the bottom. The only poll that ties directly in to the show, DI, did have her up a couple of notches, BUT that poll does not take into account text or online votes, so even though it looks like on that indicator that Lil Kim won out over Ty, we can't say that, nor could we prove it as Ty may have brought in a large number of text and online votes.

    I have long maintained that I saw somewhere ( that I can't find now) where the producers reserve the right to tweak (paraphrasing but the exact idea) things for entertainment values, but I have never seen where they reserve the right to select the final winner.

    If somebody who can videotape can catch that phrasing, that would truly be a find.

    As the credits roll at the end of the show it flies by about them reserving the right to override the outcome of the show.

    Ditto this - All I had ever really 'heard' about Lil Kim was negative. I'm not a fan of her genre of music so I didn't know her in that regard either. BUT after watching her on the show, she seems like a genuinely nice, grounded, and driven person and I hope that her appearance on the show results in something good for her
