I think Ron should be the one to go. His was the worst of the night.

I liked the new "Italianate Opera House" design of the new stage. I could see the pit (where the dance platform is set) filled with teeming masses. Anyway, clever design with the movable stairs and the hydraulic orchestra lift.
I liked that the dancers performed at or above expectations for opening night. I like that there are personalities that don't grate and everyone has a story - which we'll hear tonight on part one of the two hour result show.
I liked Brook's dress, but she still fed a few very awkward waiting for the votes questions. Did you notice they have now added her married name in her introduction? What the dancers may not like is the lengthy staircase taking them to the third tier boxes.
Looking forward to an interesting fall season.

No guy hit the dance floor with the charisma or fanbase of Hines or the sex appeal and natural ability of Gilles (though he did not win) on the first night. No lady last night danced with the name Jennifer or Nicole.
Although J.R. is inspirational and moved well, he didn't look guaranteed out of that pack to win it all from night one. Although Ricki has danced professionally in a play and she and Derek glided along well together, she didn't look like she was assured of winning it all either.
The judges did not rave over one couple and go overboard.
For me, the biggest enjoyment of last night's show came when I realized that I did not know - or have a good idea which usually pans out - who is going to win at the end of this season. I liked that!
I also liked the fact that there wasn't a standout winner as in the past season's. There were stars that didn't dance as well as others but, no one was so bad that they couldn't improve in the weeks ahead. I think the elimination tonight will be based on a popularity vote and not on dancing skills.
I would love to be in a room with Chaz, David, and Carson. With their senses of humor, I bet it would be hysterical!
