I just haven't been impressed with the choreography. I'm sure that some of that may go to the dancers, but even watching some of these dances twice, I blame much of the "lack" on the chreographers. These are not untalented dancers. The other thing that I think is playing a huge role in the performances are the pairings and I felt that the original pairings were just not good!! I think a random draw would have done a much better job, and this year I certainly think we'd have more fun with them switching up every week like they did many seasons ago. Whoever was responsible for the original pairing should be smacked!!!
I agree about the pairings as well. None of them are wowing me all that much. I guess we will just have to wait until they get paired with the all-stars to see some really good partnering.
