    She's a BIG woman, after all, and I don't think many people would be willing to challenge her size and her attitude. People like her can be intimidating. I think she puts out there that she is someone not to be messed with.

    That look on her face when the judges were criticizing her on Monday night was an excellent example of just that.

    I agree. She looks( to me) like she has a perpetual sneer. I don't think she took herself out- she was voted out. Someone has to go every week.This week it was her turn.

    Y-no-nah is such an odd pronunciation. To the rest of the world it is Win-onna, no matter the spelling.

    Problems, schmoblems. I am glad she is gone.

    Didn't see the results show so I didn't know Wynonna had been sent home. As much as I like her, I have to say good riddance. She put little to no effort into her performances, and seemed to spend more time lamenting the fact that Dorthy Hamill went home last week than anything else. A disappointing showing from her for sure.

    Re: Wynonna Judd & Tony Dovolani - Season 16

    I saw The Judds in concert once about a hundred years ago when they were just starting out. The impression I was left with that night was that Wynonna was the 'voice' and Naomi was the 'show'. Naomi dressed like a Saturday Night Live version of a country cliche and danced around Wy while they sang. Wynonna didn't do much moving then either.

    Alex I must have seen The Judds in concert around the same time as you did and all I can say is that I loved them and their music. It was Wynonna who had the voice. At the time I saw them Wynonna was not a large person at all, but she was dressed from head to toe like she was covering herself up, while her mom Naomii did just as you described and was the show part of the act.

    I may be one of the few who happen to like country music and remember all the great music Wynonna gave me through the years. First with her mom and when they were called The Judds, but after her mom had to quit the show because of being diagnosed with Hepatitis C and Wynonna because just Wynonna. That was a big deal for her as IMO I think her mom was like a crutch to her. I am sure being alone was a big deal for her.

    Wynonna had been asked six different seasons to be on DWTS and turned them down because she was terrified. This season she said yes because her husband Michael Scott “Cactus” Moser who lost his leg in that horrible motorcycle accident asked her to do it. She also asked for Tony to be her partner because she just felt she would feel comfortable with him. I read many comments that wonder why Tony or so and so get stuck with the partners they do. Anna was on After Buzz and said that a lot of things go into who gets who and one of them is personality of the pro and the celeb. Also, many times the celeb asks for certain partners. Using Derek as an example Nicole, Jennifer, Ricki, Kellie…all asked for him. Kirstie asked for Max and Bristol Mark. Just some of the examples.

    Also, when I read comments about Kirstie Ally also being heavy and how she did it. For me that is comparing apples to oranges. Yes, both struggled with weight problems, but the two don't have similar personalities. Kirsty is very outgoing and when I remember seeing Wynonna in her concert and covering herself up from head to toe she was hiding. The only thing I could see was her face and her hands on her guitar. For me that is the apples and oranges part.

    So, she was not the best dancer, but just look at some of the other contenders who are physically fit. I don't see many of them that are miles ahead dance wise than Wynonna. Personalities aside because I love some of these people, but just dance wise take Lisa who has a gorgeous body and yes she can move better than Wynonna did, but dance wise she is not miles ahead. Same could be said for DL, Andy, Victor, Ingo and Sean. For me Kellie, Jacoby, Zandaya and Aly are in another category.

    She may have not been a dancer, but she gave me many years of music and she certainly was a singer. I don't personally know her or what her life has been like. Whether some of us view her one way and others another I just hope she enjoyed her time on the show and IMO I think she did. I think she formed new friendships and that is what she is taking away from this experience.

    If I remember correctly and with all the themes they are doing perhaps country could or has been a theme where they could ask Wynonna back to perform just like they did with Gavin DeGraw. Gavin was another one who could sing, but not able to dance. Loved Gavin, but his personality was different from Wynonna's as well.

    I read something that someone wrote that articulated how I feel when the person wrote: "On Dancing With The Stars we lost another and this time a Country Legend. I’ll never forget how excited my Dad was when he first heard Wynonna Judd was dancing. He had to relive the time he saw her in concert in Casper, Wyoming. Not many big names come to Wyoming, so this was a big deal and says a lot too for Wynonna’s character. Not only does she really care for her fans, she literally loves the country. Though what I’ll always remember about Wynonna is how she did something to step out of her comfort zone and faced her fears for which she continually encourages her fans to do the same. She stood by and lived up to those mottos. What a strong spirit and one full of grace with a great message for us all. Wynonna, you disappointed no one."

    Not trying to make anyone like her who doesn't and just giving my two cents for what they are worth, and how I feel about her. We all have different tastes in music, what we see of people, etc. Just putting your self out there to be judged each and every week has to be the most nerve wracking experience there is. I am not saying she didn't deserve to go dancing wise, but just want to comment on the Wynonna that provided me years of entertainment with her music. jmho

    JayceeGirl: Thanks for your very informative post.

    If Wy was that terrified to go on the show, doing it because someone else wanted her to was the very worst reason for doing it.

    I hope she did get something positive out of it. I do feel sorry for Tony because I don't think it was a good match. But to be honest I don't think she would have had a good match with any of the pros except maybe Maks who would have kicked her a&& to here and gone to get her to move something, anything.

    I hope she is feeling better now that she doesn't have to face being on the show.

    Movement-wise, I don't think she stepped out of her comfort zone, at all. I still love her voice, though!

    I mentioned before that I sensed fear when Wy was dancing and I think that affected her performance. I got the impression that this whole competition was extremely difficult for her - she isn't a natural dancer and she was being forced waaaaay out of her comfort zone.

    I'm sorry you're gone Wynonna, as I had great hopes for you. But, I'm glad you tried.

    Re: Wynonna Judd & Tony Dovolani - Season 16

    Thank you so much for taking the time to explain this to us. I am not a country fan and did not know her background. For the life of me, I could not understand why someone ( and we have seen several now) who knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that he/she simply can't dance - just like some people simply can't sing - would come on what is still basically a dance competition ( couched as entertainment) and subject him or herself to all of the pain and embarrassment that goes with it, especially if the person does not need the money or a career boost, etc. At least we now know that she subjected herself to all of this for her husband.
