    I've never much liked Peta, but I've come to love James. He's become one of the best dancers on the show and he comes off as being a really nice person with a great attitude. I regret not choosing him for my pool, but that was because of Peta.

    Funny Florimel, I was just thinking the same thing (except the reality is I am so overwhelmed I can't remember who's in my pool, so he might be). I think he is a great dancer and has a wonderful personality. My only concern is that I don't know how well known he is. While other stars have overcome that in the past, they have usually been paired with more popular (and yes, this is all relative) pros. I don't know how popular Peta is compared to some of the others. I think that is the primary reason I ultimately didn't choose him - but I would not be disappointed if he made it to the finals. Plus he is adorable!

    I really think/hope he's on his way to overcoming all of that, KatesMom. He's developing the dance talents and he is just so likable. I didn't have a clue who he was when the show began, having never seen anything he's been in on tv or film, I look forward now to watching him dance each week. It was the same for me with Gilles when he started; no dance experience, very good looking, didn't know him from Adam, and he had the personality and just got better and better with Cheryl.

    A fun fact about that final lift. . . .

    The most challenging part of that routine was that last lift. We had originally started with something that was far simpler and easier. It still looked good, but we wanted to challenge ourselves. Nobody has ever done that lift except for pro dancer Tony Dovolani, but in all 18 seasons no celebrity has ever done it. He came in and showed us that lift and said ‘hey, go ahead, use it, try it. Nobody’s ever done it because it’s so hard.’ We took that as a challenge and said ‘let’s go for it, go big or go home.’ We were able to make it look easy when we got it, but trust me, we don’t get that every single time.

    I loved what he did to make a young girl with special needs happy, and I absolutely loved that performance. I bet I liked it as much as the kids did!!

    I agree, James is a delight. He also has that *it* factor . I wish I had chosen him for my pool, and I do hope he continues to just get better each week

    That whole thing brought tears to my eyes. Good for him. Hannah looked so happy. Beats prom any day.
