I get what you're saying. Personally, I'd rather see the people learning to dance rather than seeing the dancers dance and have an advantage. Granted, I realize that there are a variety of different forms of dance and it doesn't mean you can transition into ballroom, but regardless, you can tell who has experience and who doesn't. I think above all I'd rather be entertained by someone that's got some sense of rhythm in their feet than be bored by seeing the ringer waltz into every week and take home the trophy. Of course, Mel B could be considered a ringer and I liked her. But I got more fun out of watching Warren Sapp than Brooke Burke, Jason and Cristian than Kristi, Ty, Steve-O, and Gilles over Shawn, Melissa, and Lil Kim. If Kelly's taken dance classes, I can't really say it showed. Personally, while I thought her VW was one of the best dances of the night (though there's definitely more competition with the women than the men) I still think Mya gave a better performance and deserved high marks. Of course if Len had given her an 8, it would have been a 3 way tie for first after the first round and then a two way tie for first after the second round. I'm glad Len isn't messing around this year.Originally Posted by Harmony2000;3710615;
I think Kelly does have a way to go, but for me I was more impressed that this one time hard partying, foul mouthed, daughter of a rocker goth princess transformed so lovely into a lady. I can't even say Mel B got that far It's week 1 so I don't want to set my expectations too high just yet, but there's plenty of time to improve. I think Kelly was more surprised by the reaction she got than anything else. Right now, from the ladies, I'm rooting for her, Natalie, Debi, and Mya, but I'd prefer one of the first 3 to win. And I'm so excited Louis got her! He seems thrilled, and I'm glad they get along so well.
BTW, someone asked who the blonde guy was sitting next to Ozzy and Sharon-that was Kelly's boyfriend.
