The Stars of Dance didn't use wires etc. They videotaped the dance before the show(as Tom said before they showed it) and when they showed it to us they ran it backwards. (But they didn't tell us that part. The viewer had to guess that's what was going on.)
I thought it was very clever and quite entertaining.
As for Wy--I think once she realized on Monday's show that the judges were going to actually be criticizing her she decided to leave the show and asked ABC that they cover her leaving by saying she was "voted off." That's the only way IMO that she could have left this early because as so many here have said her fan base would have carried her for quite a while yet.
This is my own idea about how/why she left. I haven't read it anywhere else. After that "If looks could kill" look she gave the judges on Monday night I think she decided she didn't want to stick around for any more of that kind of negative critique. I doubt if anyone has ever criticized her like that in public before and she didn't want to stick around for more of the same.
I think she came on the show thinking that she would get a lot of coddling and pity etc for what "She's been through" in the past year and when she didn't she decided not to stick around and actually try to dance.
My opinion only of course.
I also thought the country fans would have kept her longer. I remember Billy rRy Cyrus almost begging people not to vote for him since he thought he would be gone sooner and he had a tour starting...LOL
One could argue that the two biggest "stars" have now gone home. Fortunately for TPTB we've had enough time to get to know the less famous dancers and will continue to watch.
I wonder what Tony was thinking when he designed this last dance for Wy. It didn't seem to highlight any of her strengths (whatever those might be). I would have put her out there every week in country & western gear unless it was a waltz. Tony has brought out the best in many poor dancers that were no better than Wy, so while I'm glad she is gone I still don't understand the reasoning behind that last dance.
As for the others, Victor could be a real surprise if he continues improving, maybe outlasting Sean and Ingo. Hopefully Lisa goes next.
