    I think she's great, and should especially rock all the ballroom and latin dances.
    And I sing sometimes like my life is at stake because you're only as loud as the noises you make.

    Every time she danced with Pasha, in my opinion, she was overshadowed. She's OK at what she does, but she's not as mesmorizing as Pasha. I don't know whether she's benefitting from having such a phenominal partner or if she just hasn't tapped into her star factor yet. I think Faina will steal a lot of her thunder.

    I really enjoyed her, but I think she's screwed with Danny as a partner. He can hardly stand her, and I don't think he appreciates having someone prettier than he for a partner. I think her personality bulldozes him.

    But I have to reserve judgment on her as a competitor until I see her outside her comfort zone. I hope they get hip hop next week.

    Wow. I watched yet again their entire segment, not because I want to proove the naysayers wrong, but because I want to see what they are seeing. I just can't see it. The ONLY thing I saw that could even be remotely deemed negative was Danny saying that Anya was a bit bossy. Even that wasn't said with any rancor, and she laughed it off. He smiled and seemed to be enjoying himself throughout the performance. Afterwards he held her hand, kissed her hand and had his arm around her for most of the time spent talking to the judges. He seemed to take Mary's minor criticisms well, said thank you for the good comments and smiled throughout. Bad attitude? I don't see it. He can hardly stand her? Don't see it. He's not my favorite - I don't actually have one yet. But I feel he got bulldozed by the comments from the judges during auditions and I haven't yet seen anything to justify what they said then.

    That said, I thought Anya was wonderful. Her energy is infectious and I think she'll do well.

    It'sd all in the perspective, I guess. I saw attitude.

    Guess my "o" finger got a little carried away.

    I agree with you , Blues Songstres. I really don't see any major attitude from Danny, and I like his pairing with Anya so far. I think she is smokin' hot, and I can't wait to see how they progress. I think she is my favorite female ballroom dancer this season, above Faina and Lacey. I just really like what we've seen so far of her personality and her dancing.
