I thought Emmit was really good tonight. I mean it's samba so no one on the show does a great job with it, but I have seen FAR worse than his performance tonight.

Gilles is slipping from my favorite as the show goes on. I LOVED him during his other season, but this time, he's just not doing much for me (dance wise that is, I wont comment beyond that except to say that Carrie Ann seems to agree with me about his hotness...though I'm not quite falling all over myself like she is LOL)

I enjoyed the team dance. That's about the best you could do with that song I think, definitely has a very high-school sounding vibe to it. But I thought they all performed well.

And I've never been a huge Derek fan, but I gotta say... I'm absolutely loving him and Shawn.

Derek is the best choerographer on the show IMO Peta is climbing rapidly in my opinion too
While I remain a fan of Derek's, I think Louis is by far the best choreographer of the pros on the show. It may not always show up in the routines he does with his celebrities (a different issue), but just look at how many of the other DWTS pros used him as a coach and choreographer for their own non-DWTS dancing. Similarly, look at the pro group numbers he's choreographed. (Just my 2 cents)

LOL :). I could probably use a complete neuro exam. Honestly, I think my issues with Derek over the years have had more to do with some of his partners than him. BUT, I'm happy to be wrong. He is quickly becoming one of my favs...

The problem with the male stars and their pro female partners is that the guys are doing simple steps and their pro female partners are all over the place doing multiple spins, dips and high leg lifts and as a couple they look good.Kelly pulled off several spins in a row... no male star has done that. However.. I agree... no more samba by anyone... until they clean it up and make it right!

I really hate samba on this show. The last couple of nights of dancing has really emphasized that for me. I think it was another board I read where someone noted that Emmitt doesn't have hip action, he has hip gyrations. That was so on point, not just for him, but in general. Not that it's surprising that the stars don't get actual samba technique down in a matter of days, but their attempts to fake it (and that people think that that's doing it right!) annoy me.

Also, while the Team Gangnam Style dance was a hot, vulgar mess, I have to say that Peta looked really good in dark hair. (and towels)

Just saw Val and Kelly's dance. Apart from the shadow reverse rolls, which I thought were great, I hated it. Too much sex, too little dancing.

I really liked Shawn's rumba. I'm not sure why Len decided her rumba lacked proper hip action while praising Apolo for his...ummm...errrr...ok.

Team dance... WTH?? lol. But it looked like they were having fun.
