    I can't remember what place Heidi and Lacey finished in? Anybody? I could have sworn that Heidi made top 4 as well but can't be positive.
    Heidi was third and Lacey was forth.

    Okay I have a huge issue with Ashleigh going to the final, just like I had an issue with Noelle getting a pass simply because....

    A few seasons back when Jessi was supposed to dance with Pasha and she got sick and had to go to the emergency room, they did not give her a pass. I mean I didn't care for her as a dancer, but it's still unfair to do that to one dancer and then let other dancers have a pass when they're unable to perform. The judges ended up automatically sending her to the bottom and made her dance for her life where they eliminated her afterward. I really think if there was already a precedent set for it in other shows, they should have followed the same procedure. I bet that if Jessi still follows the show, she's probably feeling extremely bitter and angry right about now.

    P.S. - I know a lot of you are going to argue that you can't compare the two seasons, but seriously, I don't think anyone should get a free pass if they haven't given all the other dancers who worked equally as hard a free pass.

    Thanks!

    So Ryan isn't the first and only ballroomer in the final four. Two others before him and then one who won. I knew Benji had won but forgot where Heidi and Lacey placed.

    So while he is good at what he does, I wouldn't agree that he is the best ballroom dancer ever on this show. There have been better males and better females who have gone as far if not further.

    Actually, I think she has 'sexy' moments when she dances her solo pieces. It's when she is with a partner she stumbles.

    For some reason, my mind does not connect "West Coast Swing" and "Ballroom"

    AND - I can't do this now but I should clarify I was specifically referring to male ballroom dancers. I don't think Ryan is the best ballroom dancer, just that it's nice that that genre isn't completely eclipsed by contemporary dancers.

    Artem!!
    It's when she is with a partner she stumbles.
    And that's where she should be sexy. Those hips - they do not move side to side in a seductive manner. Noelle had the same problem. Noelle's Samba and Mollee's Salsa were atrocioulsy sexless. Compare to Karen or Kathryn's ChaCha and see the difference!

    Artem *sighs* Is Carrie Ann over on DWTS still with him? I would have LOVED to see him on that show, too bad he had to go and hook up with a judge. Can we just ditch her so we can have him? Imagine...a show with Maks, Dimitry (spelling?), and Artem! I would die a happy woman.

    I think you aren't the only one who doesn't connect WCS with ballroom. I just choose to forget him altogether.

    I didn't realize you were referring to males only. Sorry about that.

    Is this year's format different, and the finale is top 6 rather than top 4? I'm confused...people keep saying the finale??

    I agree, Pasha & Sara's West Coast Swing is still one of my favorite routines of ALL time.
    Heidi and Lacey both finished 4th.
    In Heidi's season the top 4 were Benji, Travis, Donyelle & Heidi.
    In Lacey's season, top 4 were Sabra, Danny, Neil & Lacey (in that order)

    Donyelle finished ahead of Heidi? I placed Heidi third without looking it up because I was thinking no way.

    No apologies necessary. It was my fault for not being more clear (to which the flurry of posts about heidi & lacey can attest ) I always seem to think of male dancers when I think of the ballroomers because it so often seems that the women ballroom dancers can adapt to the other styles a little better.
