This is sure to be a weird week, what with the performance show split over two nights. We don’t know yet how they will do the voting, but I assume it will happen both nights. My vote is to eliminate the voting from this week entirely. That way half the couples aren’t penalized by having their solo dance on Tuesday night when fewer people actually watch the show. A lot fewer. Sure, the die hards will vote no matter what, but the casual viewer, who likely makes up the largest percentage of the vote total, might not. So, use the scores only. It will screw the margins….but at least the voting margins won’t be screwed as well. But I bet ABC is greedy for those votes and won’t do it my way. :::sigh::: Here’s to hoping for Team Shawn dancing solo dances on Monday night.
ETA: Who wants to bet me that I can tell you EXACTLY how Kirstie’s dance will play out just based on the song? :-) I predict that it’s going to be very predictable.
ETA2: In a new ABC Press release, TPTB detail how the dances will take place in one hour shows on Monday and Tuesday. They also detail how voting will take place each night. Please read the press release carefully here. Because of the different scheduling, this could really play with votings and how this competition plays out this week, so be sure you VOTE!!! ~Vogue
ETA:3 I smell a rat. How is that Kelly knows Cher Lloyd beyond what she saw on a results show?? These songs had to the ones they were picking before the season started, so what gives?? I didn’t think she was that big of a deal here just yet. I only know of her because I watched that season of X Factor UK. I smell pimpage. Hmmm….isn’t X Factor UK an ITV show, not a BBC show? I think so. So what’s the deal? Huh.
ETA4: Well, that’s just great. The pimping of Gilles continues. It appears his team is doing their individual dances on Monday, since Melissa said they were dancing their solo first on Tuesday. Great. Fabulous.
ETA5: Kind of a moot point for those who have already read the spoilers for tonight’s show, but updated to reflect tonight’s running order. -Court-
