"You oust dancers who didn't deserve to go. You keep ones who should have been sent packing. You do a last minute switch-a-roo and say nobody is going home."
I see the first two points, but the third in this case I have to disagree with.
IMHO, the ONLY reason they did a non-elimination round the first round was because I think they felt Mitchell was very good, but felt it wasn't right to keep him - who had to dance for his life because he couldn't dance with his partner night one - over someone who did do the couple dance.
While I understand it, I did find it sad that it did keep a couple safe this week who most likely would've been in danger of going home last week and kicked out at least one deserving couple (My opinion Nick and Ivetta, but I also liked Wadi and Missy's first number).
