    Well, to be entirely fair to Len, when DWTS first started he'd had minimal exposure to or experience with American Smooth. As such, any dancing out of frame was more a show number than a proper ballroom dance. As DWTS has continued from season to season he can only have become that much more familiar -- and hence more comfortable and accepting -- with the style.

    Finally found a moment to dig these up. You'll have to take my word for it that these descriptions have been up for quite some time.

    They don't specifically mention it in Viennese Waltz, but I guess when do you see even international couples stay in hold for a show VW anyway?

    Not to mention there's no such thing as Americal Style Quickstep.

    I only saw the bottom two (though not necessarily the bottom two) and....really?

    Though since I haven't voted for anyone at all this season, I really don't have any grounds for complaint.

    I was really hoping for a lovely VWaltz during Jason Mraz's song; maybe with Anna and Jonathan. Instead we got that spastic writhing flexed-foot body-flinging sequence. Bummer.

    Immediately followed by:
    Goodness people, it's not like mindputtee posted a video of something truly disturbing, like American Paso or American Samba! Give the smooth quicksteppers a break!!

    About what y'all were really responding to: Y'all really still watch this stuff? Health tip: You can drop a good 10 points off your blood pressure if you avoid reality tv dancing shows. You can not only add years to your life, but to your tv's life as well, because it won't be in constant danger of something being thrown at it. :)

    agree we need five dances in smooth for parity in american 9 soon to be ten dance:)

    Yes, the :mad: was for the elimination last night, not for American Quickstep. I don't have a problem with it.

    But yes, I have seen American Paso, and it ain't pretty.

    Not to derail this thread completely, but peabody is out there... I'm still not sure how I feel about that though.

    Haha I hadn't seen the elimination yet and at first thought that's what it was as well. I agree though, I want Kirstie to go, I'm tired of her whining.

    Alas, it might be too soon for that, particularly given the song in question.

  19. Mr 4 styles
