First question: WTH was Val wearing on his feet? Looked like he borrowed from Big Bird's closet!
I don't like contemporary, if I did, I'd watch SYTYCD. However, I did like the dances that Zendaya, Ingo and Dorothy did, in that order.
Had higher hopes for DL, but that was awful. Andy Dick was stellar in comparison.
Wynonna was a surprise. She moved better than I thought she would. I like that she is doing this for herself. You go, girl!
Kellie was very good, she will definitely go far. I love her spunky attitude.
Jacoby wasn't as great as I expected him to be, but he'll do aight. Love a man wearing purple.
Not in the sense that Michelle O originated that particular style and Cheryl's copying off her.
Cheryl was rocking a hairstyle that looks almost like an EXACT CLONE of one that Cher was profilin' back as early as 1964/65 (possibly earlier than that, actually, IIRC), As for Mrs. O? Her hair is much shorter than either Cher's from that era, or Cheryl's from tonight.
Bangs, all three? Yes. Longer? Cher (back in the early 60s), Cheryl (2013). Shorter? Michelle O (2013).
So, if anything, Mrs. O's stylist came up with a shorter version of a longer hairstyle that Cher had already been wearing back 48 or so years ago, at least.
Frankly, I was wearing a Michelle O style about 40 or so years ago, myself.
Back then, we called it a pageboy.
Now I'm the one who's probably going to get in trouble for asking ... but what was the reason for the Bristol hate and why would that spill to Mark? Did everyone think their dancing was that bad?Quote:
I'm probably going to get in trouble for posting this but I can't help but wonder if the Mark hatred was this bad on here before he danced with Bristol.
Some post-show thoughts:
- No matter how well her dances are scored, I'm going to enjoy watching Dorothy Hamill dance. She's exactly the same sweet person she was almost 30 years ago, only with a lot of life under her belt.
- Brooke showed she was as bad as ever by the way she handled her questions for Andy. She hit him over the head with a shovel on live TV with that addiction question. Sure he was already talking about it, but she didn't ask anything new, she just made him repeat the same apologetic things he'd already said in his video clip. He may regret being so open about it if he's going to have to trot it out like a 30-lb. headdress every week. He should have the same shot at keeping his dignity as anyone else there.
Overall, seems like a good bunch with some variety, but we could probably pick the final 4 now: Zendaya, Kellie, Jacoby and Aly.
I am a huge Ravens fan and am pulling for Jacoby. I thought he did a great job and if they had not said it I would not have had a clue that he did not have as much practice time as everyone else. I heard a story about him and Karina practicing in a building in my area that includes a sort of daycare center and they took time with the staff and danced with the kids.
I have to say, I have never been a Mark fan and never will be for one reason: he always upstages his partner with his weird faces and gestures and over-dancing. But something was different tonight. He actually looked different, and it wasn't just the hair. He also seemed calmer and not as flamboyant.
Or maybe I was just so distracted waiting for Ally to have a wardrobe malfunction that I didn't notice Mark for once. (Sorry, but that was one ugly costume she was wearing and I didn't think she had a prayer of getting through that dance without something popping out the top.) With Wynona, I was distracted by her teeny tiny feet which seemed way out of proportion to her body.
I thought Kellie and Derek were well matched, and Dorothy and Tristan as well. I hope both those couples go far.
Yeah...I think when it comes to pros, most of us vary greatly!
For instance, I've always liked Cheryl a lot, but I've seen quite a few people on here who are tired of her!
While I respect them all, I've never really cared for Mark. The camera mugging and out dancing his partner has always bugged me!
My only issue with Derek is that he has never gotten a DL type and while it isn't his fault that the producers never gave him one, that is why I have a slight resentment with him. But I would never take away from him as a pro...chroegraphy wise, he is possibly the best male pro, IMO! And since I do love Kellie, I probably won't complain about him as much as I normally do! :lol
Anyways, got my votes in!
It's nice to have something to do on Monday nights again...I've missed you guys!
