Hey dustparticle! I'm a former skater and skating judge (dance and singles), so it sounds like we have some similar interests. Nice to have another ice dancing/ballroom nerd around.
Anyway, I would actually consider Big Spender to be a Blues, albeit a slightly quick-tempoed one. I'm surprised the musical choices - and choreography - haven't been more appropriate.
Sad to hear Kelly "Boom-Boom" Monaco and partner are in the finals.
