I forgot to comment on Fiction and Amy. Everything about those two was explosive last night -both separately and together - their chemistry, their individual dancing, and the choreography.
She came on the scene as a power to be recokoned with, but he has been a growing surprise since he hit the stage. First, his stage presence exudes with those big eyes and big smile, and that limber body that curls around like a worm when he is dancing in his own genre is proving adaptable in fields in which he has no training.
I think this young fellow is going to be popular, and if he can continue to dance in other genres the way he has so far, I see him easily moving right on up toward the top.
Amy has a winning personality as well. When that is added to her ability and her energy...and to Fiction as a partner, Amy might go a long ways too.
The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything they have.

If Nigel is a perv, so is Mary. I often wonder how come she gets away with all her comments about the guys while Nigel is called a perv for his comments about the girls! I like them both, and am even less bothered by Mary's screaming than I used to be.
Here's a link to the video for those of you like Harmony and myself - who had to deal with a continuous stream of commercials - while Alan and Jasmine were dancing. You would think our station would take every measure possible to show a dance choreographed by hometown boy TRAVIS WALL. Epic Fail!

I very much like Nigel and Mary and most of their guest judges. If we compare them to the DWTS judges, the difference is exponential.
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Oh my word, that was fabulous! I'm so glad I got to see it. That leap! That drop! All blind folded? Insane. Easily the best of the night for me. As much as it kills me to say it, Travis was ON last night. Great routines he gave these couples (Sonya too).
I'm so happy for them, that should carry them some distance.

Not taking anything away from the dance (well, I guess it does to a degree) but the blindfolds did allow for vision.....not great vision, but they could see. We noticed that the blindfolds were very see through (not the word I'm looking for but my mind is tired).
