I saw Lance's potential right from the beginning. But they could never quite seem to get it together. Then there were flashes of brilliance - that tango with the goth-like makeup and costumes, their incredible jive that was their breakout dance, and even that lovely foxtrot last week. They have been trying to make it work and they would come so close, but fall short.
But last night it all came together gloriously. Lance was really feeling it and seemed more confident and comfortable than ever. Lacey just simply out-choreographed the other dance pros. She deserves all the credit in the world for her hard work. She managed to combine their unique style with classic, brilliant choreography that showed them off.
Lacey has come so far this season. She may have even surprised herself. I respect her dedication and perseverance. I don't feel uncomfortable expressing my support for her, even if she is generally unpopular here. I believe in giving credit where credit is due. She earned it last night.
