They take one point off for breaking the rules? Then Shawn & Derek actually scored a 10 from CA, a 9 from Len and a 10.5 from Bruno. These judges make me nuts! Other thoughts about last night, Bristol & Mark and Kirstie & Maks scored too high. All-Stars is higher quality dancing so I was hoping not to have to see crap like B & M's package. So disappointing.
I know numerous ones are not liking the season so much but I'm loving it. That's saying a lot for one who wants Maks to be on
my tv screen until the last minute of the last show of the season and I know it's definitely not going to happen this time.
I do worry about Kirstie tonight. Her performance was entertaining as heck, probably the most entertaining of the night. But I don't know if it'll be enough, especially with others being worried for their favorites, and fanbases already being in effect. Plus, there were other entertaining dances last night.
If it's not Bristol, I think between the girls (if one goes home), it'll be Kirstie or Melissa. If one guy goes home, I'd be surprised if it's anyone but Drew. I really don't see Helio going anywhere. So I'll say Drew and anyone of Kirstie/Bristol/Melissa. Although if we got a real shock and it was Sabrina, I could live with that. Despite Kelly's strong performance, scores, and praise from the judges, I still worry about her. But I think she's going to be safe this week at least.
I gave up a long time ago trying to figure out the judges process. I have no problem with Paula coming in next week to judge. As a couple of other posters have already said, I think she's more in her element as a dance judge than as a singing judge, even though I wish all the judges were ballroom professionals. But I'll take her dancing on her chair with her big arm claps and tears and throwing out puppy dogs and ice cream cones and sunshine over CA's fangirl antics that make me cringe for her new boy toy that's probably looking around for the nearest security guard. In fact, I'd love to see a 4th judge added, especially a female judge. I don't think Miss Inaba would like that very much, especially if she constantly disagreed with her (and knowing this show, they'd make sure of that).
The average dog is a nicer person than the average person
I just hated to see Helio go. I love his sweetness It is sort of uncomfortable Apollo with Karina, he clearly thinks she is someone like his mother and has no attraction to her whatsoever which seems to be throwing Karina for a loop. She is not used to not being able to use her feminine wiles on a man and it feels weird seeing them together.
I think it would have been far more interesting to see Helio with Karina and Chelsea with Apollo. I think you would have seen a different result this week. That partnership would have been sizzling. I love all four of them but I didn't think their partnering was right. Also, Bristol should have been with someone who could get more out of her. It's depressing watching those two.
