    Watched DWTS for the very first time Monday Night. I thought Apolo & Karina's routine was amazing!

    Even if the routine was not perfect, "Why You Wanna" is on my list of songs that I want to hear on the competition floor, so I am really happy about that.

    Other fun moments in "Len Gets Exposed to Smooth": Season 2, Week 1 - Tony, after being criticized for his waltz with Stacy Kiebler, goes up to the skybox and says "apparently, Len is not familiar with the difference between the American style and the International style." You also get the several wonderful occasions where Bruno has interrupted Len's criticism by whining "It's American SMOOOOTH!".

    All the judges seem to have a different view of ballroom. Bruno seems to purely value how sexy the dance is.. if it is sexy, he is happy, Carrie Ann seems to reward enthusiasm and performance over technique, Len at least does evaluate technique and authenticity to the ballroom dance and actually does not seem to like all the "flash and trash".

    I don't know about anyone else, but on last night's show I found myself waiting for the next "dancing campaign ad". I thought they were great. "I'm Kirstie Alley and I approve this message."

    DWTS music producers: Just putting them in a quasi-military costume does make a song about ODing ("Arms of the Angel") or "Hallelujah" appropriate musical choices to salute the military. And not only is "Danger Zone" a bizarre choice for a quickstep, your singers should probably learn the lyrics before doing a live show.

    okay...look...that derek shawn thing was very cool...BUT, not much samba there...and how carrie ann could say that the samba that was there was executed perfectly, I will never grasp....see my previous posts on carrie ann...even though I do like derek and shawn and love to watch what they do

    Tom said it--more Simba than Samba.

    Also, please tell me Bruno did not just use the words "jungle fever." The costumes are already borderline....

    Three 10s for Emmit ? Crazy !

    Messed up scoring, as usual o_O
    Granted, Emmit doesn't do it for me anyway (*yawn*), but that trio was not worthy of 10s. Nor were Melissa's dances. Her topline irks me. It was too squishy in QS, and not proper in Paso. Thought Kelly's legs in Jive were not quite up to par.

    Funny that Len penalized for "not enough Samba", but there was plenty of "filler" in the other routines (some of which got 10s). So :confused:

    It is what it is.
  20. The scoring was really off tonight!

    Three 10's for Emmit's salsa? You must be kidding. If they had not announced it as salsa, I would not have guessed that this was supposed to be salsa.

    Emmit was off the music, the music had nothing to do with salsa and the girls' costumes were more for a parade than for a hot salsa venue. I would have given them an 8.

    And Carrie Anne gets on my nerves constantly picking on Gilles and finding fault with him but overlooking others' faults.

    I really enjoyed Gilles' salsa (do I ever enjoy salsa on this show?). Was it authentic salsa? Not really. But it was pretty good for DWTS standards, I thought. He was lucky he had real salsa music. And Peta and Chelsea were hot salseras!

    Although Shawn's trio dance had very little samba in it, I liked it and thought it was very well danced. Len was right but he was too harsh with his score, especially considering some other scores (e.g. Emmit's 10)!

    Overall, IMO the level of dancing is really high this season and I enjoy the show.
