I like the idea of having the pros show the dances and highlight (freeze frame and name step/point it out) the things they are looking for. I would also like if they would show us the "mess-ups" after they are pointed out by the judges. Half the time I don't know what they saw that was wrong. It would be nice to see that so I could watch with a better eye.
I agree with mixing up the order. Each week, couples should rotate segments.
And Kelly Ripa would be perfect in the co-host role! Excellent suggestion.
But mostly, get rid of the singers! (and I use that term loosely) They are simply awful and detract from the performances we see. Nothing ruins a moment than a butchered rendition of _______ (fill in the blank).
And, one last thing. How about appropriate song choices to match the dance? I find it hard to see some of the dances coming together with such odd selections given to the pros.
That's my two cents...
