    Yes, I was suprised that the other two dances were with Shawn...thought for sure the freestyle from last season would've been one.

    And DWTS is lucky to have him..as well as all the other pros who are super, super talented!

    He beat out some heavy competition. Congratulations, Derek and DWTS!

    He was nominated twice, but he won for the "Hey Pachuco" Quickstep he did with Shawn Johnson, where they used the trampolines and ended up falling from the stairs into the orchestra pit.

    Ironically, that was during Iconic Dances week, so the routine was based on Helio & Julianne's original Quickstep from season 5. But Derek definitely took it to another level.

    Yeah, I didn't mention the other nomination since it wasn't the one he won for!

    Plus, looking up the three songs for the one he did win for took some time cause I couldn't remember how to spell the songs!

    While Sonya occasionally blows one out of the park, I've gotten to where I get quite irritated with her because it seems to me that her main concern with her choreography is getting praise from her fellow choreographers and or the judges but she seems to care less if her routine is so over the top that the TV audience isn't about to vote for the dancers enough to keep them in the contest.

    Edited to add: Congratulations Derek! This is well deserved and I'm especially glad you got the prime-time recognition you and all of your fellow choreographers deserve.

    Will you accept my dancing rose bro as a 'special powers' idol?

    I like Sonya, I'm not irratated in the least. Now, Derek with trampolines for a Quickstep is something else. He's been nominating himself since season 10 and finally ABC threw enough money at the production for him to win. There are other choreographers who have won on DWTS, by dancing! What a concept.

    Yikes. Flat footed dancing. Not good. All the back bends and cartwheels in the world ain't gonna cover up poor technique.

    When you look good, you tend to DO good...or at least "better". I couldn't not put my heart into a dance when I was wearing something that ugly.

    The rejoicers are rejoicing!
