In my opinion, the best female dancer - Monique; and best male - its a tie between Joey and Mario. I wish Emmet would kick up his performances. He has the talent, but is probably not spending enough time to get the nuances right like posture, upper body positioning, etc. right.
Okay, that letter from Tom DeLay just did it for me. I haven't been watching this show that closely and I haven't been voting since Tucker left, but now I'm going to not only watch every week, I'm going to be voting 100% for Jerry Springer, regardless of how he dances, until Sara Evans is gone!
To bring politics into a fluff show like this is just ridiculous!
Sara's large fan base voting for her, even though her dancing is just not that good reminds me of last season. Master P and Jerry Rice got a lot of votes even though their dancing was not the best. Master P was downright horrid and arrogantly refused to cooperate with his partner, yet he stayed long after he should have. Jerry Rice came in second coming close to winning, even though he should have been 4th or 5th.
Fortunately, this year the weaker dancers with huge fan bases (Jerry and Sara) are nice people who are really trying to do better each week. Jerry is as charming as George Hamilton and probably a better dancer. Sara is sweet and unassuming, but lacks body awareness and coordination (kind of a female version of Harry Hamlin). HOPEFULLY - neither of them will win. But, on the plus side there are more really strong dancers than there have ever been. So, maybe they will overwhelm the voting so that the two weak ones are voted out when they should be.
Maybe next season my dream will come true and they will eliminate the fan voting altogether. (as if) This will eliminate the need for a "results" show (of which I only watch the last 5 mins) and the judges can finally eliminate the fan factor from their scoring.
Jerry needs to go, before he has a heart attack or is required to use hip action. I think he is funny and probably a nice guy, but he isn't as funny as George was last year, so that isn't a reason to keep him around.
Sara probably notified her fan club that she was doing this show and they aren't likely to care whether she can dance well or not. They should consider that the longer she sticks around, the worse the abuse will get. She doesn't seem to have any natural ability, so I don't see her improving with time.
IMO, Monique is one of the best dancers, and she has a very nice personality to go with it. Her being the bottom 2 was unbelievable to me. I would have put Sara there with Vivica.
I dislike Vivica because she's Vivica, not because she's a strong black female. I dislike Vivica because every time I have seen her over the last 4-5 years she has been nothing but rude and condescending, even to her supposed friends (Star.) I think she's a crappy actress. Sure, she's confident, but she appears to not know the meaning or concept of humility to pair with that confidence and that pushes her over the edge into full on arrogance.
She's in shape, yes, but that doesn't give her a free pass.
Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.
