Not that it matters now, but, I wonder what Tony and Chynna’s scores would have been if their Tango had looked like this Monday night? What kind of score would you have given them if you were a judge? You can see it at the 4 minute mark below.
In my opinion, this dance needed more oomph and power. I love Chynna’s ballet moves, but, it seemed somewhat slow and lacking to the “Mission Impossible” theme song. It seemed too repetitive to her other dances too. I don’t think the performance deserved more than a “7″ or at best an “8″. Hmmm….
Also, as some of you have been discussing in another post, Chynna has expressed to The Huffington Post that the show is a “Popularity Contest” instead of about “dancing”. Below is the exact quote. True or False and is she being a poor sport about it? USA Today asked, “Sour grapes or telling it like it is”?
Phillips wouldn’t necessarily call “DWTS” a dancing competition. “It really does come down to the votes,” Phillips told The Huffington Post before her elimination. “And that’s kind of sad because it’s supposed to be a dance competition, but it’s actually a popularity contest, which makes me kind of sad. You know, you have to have a little bit of faith that there are people out there who are truly voting for their favorite dance, not their favorite person, because it is a dance competition and people are working really hard. It would be very sad if that was undermined, and it looks to me like that keeps getting undermined.”
What she said is true, but, she completely blanked out the whole dance and that has to account for something in my opinion whether a person is popular or not. Plus, she was just as well known as the other celebrities if not more so in some cases (IE: did that many people here know who J.R. Martinez was before this show?). Plus, her husband has a fairly big following. Anyway, I like her, but, I’m starting to think she’s being a poor sport some on this.
If interested, the two will be on The Wendy William’s show tomorrow (Friday) as well.
Thanks to Vin for the heads up on the Huffington Post article.
