DwtS Results

I like the behind-the-scenes stuff, but they really should just have this at a half-an-hour. It's too long, too padded and just silly. Okay, now on with my bullet-point thoughts.

- Thank God Clyde is gone. Didja all see his fist pump when his name was called?

- I really would like to see the stars get their desire when they know they won't win. In S2, Lisa really just wanted one perfect score because Drew and Stacey were getting them constantly and Lisa/Louis kept JUST falling short and it was really depressing that their final dance -- which WAS awesome -- and everyone KNEW that it would be their last dance because of the Drew/Stacy/Jerry fanbases, that the judges couldn't give them the 30. And now Billy Ray says he just wants an 8 and then he'll go home happy, so I hope he gets an 8 ... and they goes homes which we'll make him and lots of us happy.

- The encore tonight (and I still think that they should have got it last week) of Julianne/Apolo was the fourth time I watched it. Still not disappointed. And I think they did the final move better tonight than they did last night.

- So happy that John/Edyta were safe. It may have been the best worst samba, but I sure as heck enjoyed it more than every other performance but Laila/Maks and, of course, Julianne/Apolo.

- I love Lisa, I do and the singing was okay, but I really would have preferred a number where she danced more than what she did because by the end of her run on DwtS, she really was wonderful. And that number just didn't fit with this show.

- Unlike the swing number, first of all ... LOUIS!!!!!!!!!! He probably choreographed that (I believe he choreographs most of the group numbers) and it was so good, so much fun to watch and seeing him dance most of it with Julianne was a real treat since Louis is my fave of the male dancers and with Ashly out due to her pregnancy, Julianne is my fave female (although, I heartily do admit that Julianne is a zillion times better choreographer than Ashly, but then I think Julianne is the best choreographer on the show right now).

* Gerrie, you so need to get a copy of season one to see Ashly and Joey McIntrye, that's when so many fell in love with her. She was really unfortunately saddled the next two seasons (sorry, Harry.)

- Macy Gray? Can't stand her voice, didn't watch a second of it.

- I love, love, LOVE the Jimmy Kimmell stuff. Just LOVE! They crack me up so much and tonight was no exception.

- Finally, in watching the repeat of what we saw of Joey/Kym -- I didn't rewatch his performance after the comments -- I agree COMPLETELY with Len and Carrie-Ann and Bruno was on crack. His performance WAS very feminine.

Hee - I had almost EXACTLY the same reactions you did. EXACTLY. I posted my reaction before I read yours and I swear we are brainsharing. And I too agree after watching Joey again that it is feminine. I focused on his arms and reaction movements and then contrasted it with Apolo - it was feminine and Len was right.

I thought tonight's Jimmy Kimmel was really good and I'm so glad they changed it up. I was prepared to be bored by the same ol thing and lo and behold, they finally did something different.

Yup, I read yours, I was wordier, shocker!, but we did see it exactly alike. Cool.

Interesting...I always liked Lisa, but I found that to be a bit delusional on her part -- if Drew and Stacy were the standard bearers, she was clearly never going to reach that level. But now I wonder if it wasn't some producer interference, since the story was that Stacy never had the voter support -- that the judges kept her in it. A higher score, plus Lisa's votes (if they were ranked as ordinals in S2) might've sent Stacy home, and the producers would've lost their Drew/Stacy showdown. Which...they didn't get anyway, so it was kind of a moot point. Still...I wouldn't put it past them. They propped Stacy up a lot that year.

The encore tonight (and I still think that they should have got it last week)

I had no qualms about Joey getting it last week, but he did NOT deserve it for that stupid "Star Wars" tango. :x I also thought Joey did himself no favors by appearing with Kimmel -- although I guess voters have probably already made a decision about whether they love/hate the ham (and you know where I stand ;)

Hope you had more luck finding A/J pics!!! :)

See, I didn't think it was delusional at all. They do and have given 30s to couples who do a really good job, and the fact that they were getting 28s and 29s regularly at that point, it was a perfectly reasonable expectation. And that they didn't give it to her was just so very sad.

I hadn't heard that about Stacy, but honestly doesn't surprise me at all. I really honestly think -- based on talent -- that it should have been a Drew/Lisa finale with Drew taking it home. The fact that Jerry and Stacy -- who mostly just extended her legs, twirled and looked sexy the last few weeks -- outlasted her was just frickin' wrong. Lisa fans were calling foul at the constant Stacy propping, but we were told that we were just smelling a conspiracy. Hahh!

Yeah, I guess Joey deserved it last week, but I still think A/J did better than Joey/Kym that week. And I DO think they deserved it for the SW tango though. I LOVED that, but I am a SW geek, so ....

I'll probably look for A/J pics this weekend. For now it's still the dancing cucumber.

I just downloaded S2 and am rewatching the Lisa/Louis stuff (saving their routines, and the Cheryl/Drew routines I liked also) and I have to make a correction. Lisa wasn't even wanting a perfect score of 30, she just wanted ONE 10! Just one!!! And watching her final routines and the judges' comments again, I remembered my ire anew. Len and Bruno really praised her with no negative, and everyone knew she couldn't beat the judges' fave Stacy and audience fave Jerry and the judges'/audience fave Drew, so she was going home the next night and they couldn't give her ONE FRICKIN' TEN!?!?! That's all she wanted was one frickin' ten. Poor Lisa.

Also, of interest, I think that Julianne/Apolo and Laila/Maks were much better starting out than Drew/Cheryl, which really surprised me because I remember D/C as being the standouts from the beginning of any season. DwtS REALLY lucked out with not one, not two, but three (I'll include Joey for pure technique) celebs who started out dancing strong from the beginning.
