    You are probably dead on right about that.

    Well, this dance is like a Branson Special... so its right up Donny's alley.

    That outfit makes my eyes hurt though.

    It wasn't ten-worthy though. I hope they don't artificially mark this up to tuck him in over Kelly.

    Donny is counting on every Mormon everywhere to power vote for him. And he probably won't be disappointed.

    And see? They just made sure Kelly's advantage got snipped. No way she's gonna get all 9s again.

    JoAnna is getting through because of Derek. I truly believe if she was paired with Johnathon or Tony she would have been gone ages ago. That is why I want Derek to take some time off for awhile. I am sick of seeing him.

    The one significant element provided by professional training in tap is foot speed. In my view, this provides the foundation for Mya's competence in the faster Latin dances.

    MHcarrollton, you and I could not disagree more about Joanna and Derek. Every week I see the results of hard work in rehearsal Dance does not come naturally to her, and she has turned out to be a much better dancer than I anticipated. She's no Mya, but then a couple of the pros are not really much different professionally than Mya.

    Joanna: Once again far more interesting than Mya.

    But Mya will be marked higher, no doubt.

    Sure, we could wish Joanna was a nicer person, or had her original body parts. But even so, she DID do REALLY well tonight, every single time.

    Joanna looked like she was misstepping on that and about to fall a couple of times to me - but the judges must not have seen any of that

    OK, here's a dumb question from a non-dancer.

    Is DWTS considered a prestigious gig for a dancer?

    Derek just seems so above it. He dances with every cell in his body. His talent seems so wasted on this show. Although, he is a great teacher and choreographer also.

    I think if I were a dancer I would want to be doing serious dancing somewhere else. Broadway? IDK

    I can always hope for a shock tomorrow, but I know it won't happen.

    Whether it's Kelly or Donny, I've enjoyed them both so much this season where it's been a downer in terms of watching and finding people to root for. I may not be going in invested into the finale like previous seasons, but at least one of them will be there and hopefully win.

    It's gotten these pros a ton of publicity and many of them have been able to pursue other passions as a result. Mark/Derek reportedly got a record deal, Julianne has albums that have come out and a movie role in the remake of Footloose, Tony has some independent movie roles coming up, Edyta did a bit part on CSI: NY, and I know Cheryl has also had a couple of bit movie roles. Maks/Karina were able to join Broadway and BTF. These possibilites likely wouldn't have happened without the show. I guess it depends if they want a future as a dancer, which they'll always have that tie. But if they want other things, its certainly helped.

    I remember hearing way back that the show wanted Derek for season 4 but he declined, however once he saw how popular it made his sister (and really, that's when DWTS hit its peak, imo) and how popular it was in general he signed on.
