Voguerista: Enrique by far! Sssss, where are your votes?
Courtney: I think I’d rather have a root canal than listen to Enrique shrieking on “I Like It”, lol. But it looks like Santana & Daughtry was the most crowd-pleasing…although I still enjoyed Heart quite a bit. Didn’t realize there were so many alternative spellings for Christina & Enrique’s names…one of the caveats of having the “other” category is the myriad of responses you get, hehe.
John: Well, this was probably my fault that we didn’t have Enrique and Christina on the poll. Even Ne-Yo and Annie Lennox would have likely done better if they were on the poll and not just a write in. Enrique will still be happy to know he has a lot of fans (even if they don’t know how to spell his name).
Who had the worst luck when it came to DWTS song choices?
jennifer and derek with So what 1
Kyle and Lacey’s Foxtrto to the “Charlie’s Angels” theme 1
Jennifer and derek’s 1st paso to rock star 1
derek and jennifer shut up 1
bristol and mark’s monkees 1
Voguerista: It seemed liked everyone was given a bad song choice at one time or another. I really wish officials would let the dancers and contestants pick their own songs. Sometimes it’s almost like they are setting some couples up to fail?
Courtney: I think the results of this one are very telling. Sitch & Karina got absolutely HOSED when they were given “Boom Boom Pow” for a foxtrot, but they managed to turn it into a memorable routine that actually managed to get the encore for the week – which to me illustrates the idea that a truly good pro can turn a crappy situation (no pun intended) into a decent routine. I’ve noticed a lot of fans try to blame song choice when their favorite couple has a ho-hum routine…and while I agree that a song can really influence the way a dance turns out, I think it’s ultimately up to the pros to make the best of the situation and suck it up. I really only think one of the above dances was truly bad – Margaret & Louis’ Viennese waltz – and I think that had more to do with the silliness going with the choreography than the music itself. For those in the “other” category – it’s interesting that a few of you thought Jennifer’s 1st paso to “So What” was a bad song choice, considering it’s already been used for a paso once before on the show (I believe it was Shawn & Mark’s first paso in season 8 – which I recall they did pretty well on); as for the TV theme week dances, I think everyone was probably equally bad off with their songs, since TV themes are pretty cheesey to begin with :-)
