I got 4 votes for Emmitt and Cheryl, but the fifth one, all I heard was "Cheryl." The next time I got the you have reached your quota message. I noticed there was a long lag time between when the phone stopped ringing and the thank you for voting message came on. I very nearly hung up the first time.

I think they all talked about "sacrificing" at one time or another this season. Pay me $25,000 a week and I'll sacrifice a lot too

I agree and it was exciting to see the 10s. This year, 10s are meaningless.

I thought Mario and Karina looked like a bunch of random dance moves thrown together, while Emmitt and Cheryl looked like a team. To me, that's one of the big differences that make me love their routines and yawn in boredom over stuporMario.

I really enjoyed watching both teams. In response to several postings, I think the judges didn't give "10"s for a long time, but as soon as the first one went up, the "10"s started falling like flies. I don't know that any "10" awarded in the last couple of weeks has truly been earned. At least not in my opinion. I really enjoyed watching them, but they didn't leave me soaring.

Naturally, as you said, there is always an element of personal preference in any judging, but I'm suprised at how it seems to dominate on this board.

There are alot more factors that go into this than who excutes the technical aspects the best. If that were all it was about it would be a 1 week show and the judges would just score them with no input or critisism given.
No amount of downplaying (I was young, it wasn't ballroom danicng etc.) can disguise that mario had more knoweldge and skill in dancing right from the first week. If they had both only danced in clubs or at weddings for their own enjoyment, it would be an equal playing field. As for me, I look at how they've improved over time and it's been Emmitt that has grown by leaps and bounds. If you look at his dancing for the first week and now the difference is HUGE. I barely see any difference or improvement between Marios first week and his last. Then there's attitude and sheer enjoyment and appreciation. I see that in Emmitt, I don't in Mario.
This is my first season watching and though I knew that Emmitt had played football, I didn't know what team or even what years he played. I could care less if they are an athlete or an actor, I didn't have a favorite going in. I'm capable of independant thought based on what I see with my own 2 eyes and Emmitt won me over with his ability that grew every week, attitude and the sheer joy and pleasure he gets from it.
In my opinion Emmitt has more talent based on all these things
