Ahhhh...so Nicole has it by one point on the free style. Anna said last night that NO ONE has EVER won the show who didn't win the free style. Wonder if that will hold true this season.
They deserved the highest marks on the freestyle - but with the 3rd dance taking place before the F3 elimination then there is more chance for judges manipulations to get the outcome they want. I hope they dont' want Nicole.... :ohno
Actually, I didn't enjoy their free style. Is Nicole the best dancer? Yes, (and she should be since she's been doing that for a living) but for a free style, it wasn't what I like to see, and I expected MUCH more. I want more fun and pizzazz. The costume change bothered me also. As someone said on another thread, why did the cameras pan away to the judges during it? Odd. I was so surprised when the judges raved. Good dancing but, for me the viewer at home, it was blah and overscored.
I thought Nicole's freestyle was just a compilation of the dances that she'd already learned, just a bit of judge-butt-kissing. I read in a thread that they weren't supposed to do ballroom in their freestyle, is that true?Quote:

I didn't notice the judges panning away - I'll rewatch the show tonight and will look for it.
Yeah, they want Nicole. They, especially Carrie Ann, has been all over the place talking about how Nicole is the best dancer this show has ever seen, and how she should win. They should know that this has sometimes backfired for them in the past, when they would pick a favorite and the viewers would go in a different direction.Quote:

Unless, and I think this is a very good possibility, he is running away with the fan vote, and that's why they tried to separate him from the other two with their scores, in order to save Nicole. I still think Evan may have a chance to win, I'm just not as convinced as I once was.
I would love to see Erin/Maks win, the underdog, the team everyone wrote off and ignored, come from behind and take the trophy.
