    Also, since they have been terminated, would the show pay them for their rehearsal and production time?

    Don’t all the dancers come back and perform on finale night anyway?? I don’t’ get the indignation to being asked to come back and perform. To me, it would be more of an honour – not an insult.

    I don't recall another couple booted off before the finals being asked to come back and perform their FS, so to me it was an obvious statement acknowledging the fact that the wrong pair was eliminated. And as others have said, the judges can thank theselves for that, at least in part, for scoring Bristol way too high and heaping compliments on her about how much she improved, when in fact she didn't improve enough to deserve all the praise. It was Kyle who did! I don't think Brandy and Maks should perform a FS unless they're extremely well-paid to do so, and even then the only reason I would like to see them do it is to further emphasize how ludicrous it was for them to get eliminated instead of Bristol because I couldn't be more certain that her FS performance could not begin to compare to Brandy's.

    All the couples do come back, and they used to perform one of their dances from the actual season. However, in the last 2 seasons most of the couples performed a new number. So it's not too far fetched to see Brandy come back and perform her freestyle. I don't think she has a choice, honestly, based on contract.

    I don't think it's the same thing. Only the finalists perform a FS. Brandy and Maks were asked to come back and perform a FS; therefore, it is comparable to admitting they should have been in the finals. The other contestants who come back to dance (as filler on finals night) do ballroom or Latin.

    I'd like to see their FS. I was looking forward to it so it would be fun to see. I think it has potential to be outstanding.

    Being asked to do it was a bit odd but I do think it was meant as an honor not an insult.

    I would be entirely impressed if Maks and Brandy were willing to perform their freestyle. For one, it would be less pressure on Maks to design something to please the judges and more for enjoyment.

    From the Team Apolo package, Brandy commented that she really liked the hip-hop moves they infused into the cha-cha. Based on that info, I'd imagine that she'd want a hip-hop freestyle.

    I wonder if Maks is willing to give anything more to this show. He evaluates himself as "not a good DWTS pro:" Widget share..

    I can't get that link to pull up, but yeah, I'm resigned to the fact that Maks may be gone for good on this show The old school pros don't seem to get the love as the younger crew, who pull out all the stops, throw in gimmicks, and give the crowd what they want (not to mention dumb it down enough for a former Fly Girl to understand). Anna, Maks, Tony, Louis, Jonathan, Edyta, and Alec all seem to have gotten more criticism, and they're usually the ones who stick to the rules rather than the script. It doesn't help when you throw in the editing, the reputation people won't let him forget, and the pettiness with the judges (once again, a certain someone).

    He's a fantastic pro, dancer, and choreographer, and I know he'll never forget that. But it's too bad the show had to get so far away from it's premise and cater to their favorites. It's why I feel Derek will never get a pro that's on the level of Kate.

    I hope they do nothing more than meet their contractual obligations. The judges scoring Brandy and Bristol the same in the first dance Monday night was a farce.
