No Dancing with the Stars thread? - Page 3

No, you're not allowed to do *lifts*. Flips are fine, afaik.

Okay, thanks for the clarification.

Okay, what did everyone think of last night? Joey did do well, but I don't know what it is, something about him just rubs me the wrong way. Heather seems to be doing well, but I'm starting to get tired of hearing about her leg all the time. I applaud her for going on the show, but don't keep telling me over and over that she only has one leg. I get the picture. Clyde, seems like he is just sinking more and more. Poor Billy Ray is trying to hard, I have to give him points for that. I missed Laila's performance, but heard the judges comments, seems like she is slipping a little. Apollo is so cute, I can't help but to like him. He just seems so sincere, and like he is truly having fun.

You can watch the show for free on the station's website. I don't mind hearing about Heather's leg when it's relevant, like needing a special one for the jive; I found that interesting. But the judges "wow, one legged Heather, you did it again" is annoying. Loved Heather's Mambo!

I think that very tall people are going to look awkward unless, perhaps, they have a partner of comparable height. The model, Miss USA, and the basketball player just don't look right (and the first two were eliminated for it).

Anyone think Joey's partner Kim looks like Barabra Eden without her dance make-up?

Yes, LOL.

I'm not a Joey fan but I thought he did really well. I was surprised.

Okay- does anyone know if the couples choose their own music? If so, some of the choices just...well...they are not good choices for the dances, or the dancers!

Watching online. Heather looked better (cosmetically than she ever looked) and I like the dance also; it seemed the best of the night so far.

I think they'd pick their own music as they do the choreography.

Seriously. I can't be the only one that kept thinking "Why is Laila dancing to the Bad News Bears theme?!"

I'm glad Leeza is gone - she irritates me.

Exactly. Thanks for the clarification on that.

So true.

Well, Leeza went last night. I predict that Clyde is next to go.

I love that music...and the tiger stripes . Glad Clyde's gone; think Billy Ray is next. Glad the Cheers guy is staying; he really tries. I think he would look like a better dancer if he wasn't so thick around the middle. Oh, and Apollo is really getting the dancer figure down--even sticking out his butt.

I couldn't believe Heather was in the bottom 2! She's not the most fantastic dancer out there , but she is certainly better than at least 2 of the people that weren't in the bottom 2. Don't get me wrong, I actually think she is doing really well, but I think that frequently her upper body is not as good as it could be, and some of the moves in her last dance were just a bit awkward.

Apollo was amazing the other night.

I think Ian would seriously do much better if he could relax!

I was kind of surprised Heather was in the bottom two as well. However, I thought it the one comment Len made was unfair about not taking away a point b/c of her fall. For me, that proved that they (or Len at least) is not judging her the same as everyone else.

Apollo is really good. Laila and Apollo are still my favorites.

I liked also when Clyde said that the judges need to realize they are not American Idol and not striving to be the best dancers. He had a good point, however, I think it probably was about time for him to do. I wonder who will be next week.

Just wanted to add that Jimmy Kimmell is starting to get on my nerves.

I agree.

Yes she has an artificial leg, but she is not the first contestant to have a medical issue that can hinder how they dance.

I am not that surprised she was in the bottom 2. People wanted to keep her in to see how she'd do, now that they've seen it I think people are over her and especially over how they keep going on and on about her leg. We get it, move on and judge her like the other contestants.

One of them(the girl judge?) did comment about how she needs to improve her upper body strength because that part is weaker.

I do find the entire judging system to be a bit unfair as the girls always have way more moves & work to do than the guys.

I think Heather was in the bottom 2 because Billy Ray has a far bigger fan base here in the US than she does. There is no way Billy Ray is better than her!! Did you see how shocked HE was that we wasn't in the bottom 2? It was good to see Clyde go. I think Billy should go next if only to put Karina out of her misery.
