I think that's one of the main reasons I'm enjoying this couple so much, the lack of sexual chemistry. So many times on this show the dancing seems to be all about being sexual and showboating and everything except dancing that it makes me uncomfortable to watch. I'm enjoying watching pure dancing, done well. Last night was a treat.
Other than Kyle, I pretty much have been OVER Disney kids for quite some time, now.
Z is a horse of a different color, though.
She's talented and sweet, and I find that I like her a lot and look very much forward to seeing what she and Val'll do each week. I was moved by her tribute to her grandmother, and thought she looked absolutely lovely and danced worderfully.
Much as I miss Maks, Val is REALLY coming into his own working with her, too. His choreography is shining like a diamond! Who knew? And sex bomb that he is, he comports himself in a very careful, professional manner with Z, and they mold and mesh well together.
The two of them are a wonderful, unexpected treat this season, and I'm VERY glad now that I didn't bail.
Can't WAIT to see what they've got stuffed in their dancing shoes for next week!
BTW think about where her grandmother and mother were sitting and then think about how much "arranging" the show had to do to get them in those front row seats so they could be easily accessed for a hug/kiss.
A lot of what happens on this show that viewers interpret as "spontaneous" are really the result of hours of planning and preparation by the producers.
Totally agree ness! Other than Kyle, I normally can't stand the Disney star, but Z just seems so genuine and sweet!
And yes, stars always dedicate there dances to loved ones and all have been so sweet, just like Z's. JR's rumba was one of the most emotional ever.
And about seating, I always see everyone's family in the front row, so I don't think abc really had to do tons of maneuvering.
Like I always say, to each his own. Last night was lovely, you go Z!
LOL Mesachick. We'll have to start paying more attention to your "predictions" now.
Okay, okay, the truth finally comes out. :blush
I wasn't really attacking Z or saying she was pretending or faking. I just wanted to remind that a number of contestants have done tribute dances and that they all get a lot of help from production with those.
In some instances (though not necessarily this one) I have gotten the idea that production asked at the beginning of the season if any of the contestants had anyone they could or would want to do a tribute dance for. And then things progressed from there.
