I would rather have Mary scream directly in my ear for 5 minutes straight instead of having to hear 2 or more seconds of self-absorbed drivel come out of Mia.

I'm a Mary fan all the way and I felt that last season's critiques were technically lacking due to her absence. Especially in the ballroom routines. I think lots of couples got passes on ballroom performances because Mia and Adam don't know how to look for the technicals.
