I tend to look at those who entertain me more. And who's the best dancer is obviously going to be a matter of opinion, because I think Mya stole the night for the ladies and that Natalie outdanced Joanna in the relay foxtrot. Kristi may have been a better dancer, but I enjoyed watching Jason and Cristian more. Same with Warren and Brooke, Warren was much better than I ever expected and he was just a joy to watch. Now this season, Aaron may have been better technically, but I enjoyed Donny, Mark, Chuck, and Aaron a lot more. I can't argue Derek isn't fantastic when he dances, it's everything in between that I don't like. And then there's Joanna. After seeing her on Superstars, reading some interviews with her, I don't buy the 'I'm really a sweet nice girl' routine. I can only imagine her reaction if she won this whole thing. I'm not entirely convinced she will, because unlike season 7, I think there are others who may take that away from her and Derek (unless of course, again, favoritism shines through). Joanna finished first, but that was out of just 8, and just the females. She has, what, 10 weeks to go? I'd love nothing more than to not see the same people dominate the leaderboard every week. It's unlikely Chuck or Louie will ever finish 1st, but Natalie, Mya, Mark, Donny, and even Debi have potential to do so. I just want to see the wealth spread, and not see the judges nitpick one couple to death but overlook another that maybe didn't have as much content to their routine, or CA overlook a lift because "it was a part of the routine". If Joanna is a good dancer, I can admit it, even if it hurts. I do think she gave the best salsa of the night, though I don't think there was a lot to the routine. But, I'm not expert, either, for what the technical aspects of the dances are. I do hope she can remain gracious and humble, but I'll be surprised if the criticism catches her off guard. This may be another Shannon/Derek no hips in the rumba moment.
