Thanks to the great recaps here, I saved two hours of my life and did something ELSE (rather than watching DWTS) last night. I did watch the last 3 minutes. Did anyone else here notice that when they were all applauding for Helio, Bruno and CA were standing to clap, but Len was sitting down with his head in his hands in an "I can't BELIEVE this" attitude? Of the judges, he is the one (I believe) who takes the judging most seriously, and he must be mortified at the travesty of having Bristol still there while Helio is gone. To be honest, even Mark looked embarrassed standing next to the white queen of smugness as the camera moved down the lines of contestants and pros.
As much as I adore Maks, I'm not loving Kirstie as much this season. I love their friendship and their chemistry, but - silly me - I watch dancing shows to see good dancing. My favorites this year (from that standpoint) are Apolo and Melissa.
