I love all three of these people. 🙂 Nice job.
So this week you have to ask yourself this question: Just how solid are Bonner and Sharna??
Are they getting a ton of votes or has everyone forgotten about them? You tell me, cuz I just don’t know. I’m leaning toward people have forgotten him. He hasn’t made much of an impact, whereas I feel like the other potentially low hanging fruit (Nick) has made more of one – for getting screwed more than anything else. 🙂 But let’s look at the numbers.
Raise your hand if you think the judges (for whatever reason) thought that Nick would be the one going home this week and accidentally gave him a higher score than what they would have if they thought he was staying. :::raises hand::: As you know, we’ve had much discussion over the last couple years about how much the judges know about the voting – if the producers tell them. I’ve always been of the mind that they tell LEN and Len sort of guides the narrative that the producers want to sell. Whether they tell him outright or they just give him hints, who knows? Anyway, I tend to think the judges buy their own BS half the time and had convinced themselves that Nick was leaving and that Erika was awesome. They really should read this blog – we’re right a good amount of the time. 😉 Read more..
So apparently season 21’s Nick Carter is going to be posting up at the judges’ table on Monday night, per People – I assume he’s filling in for Julianne, who started the Move Beyond tour last night.
PEOPLE can exclusively reveal that Monday’s Dancing with the Stars will feature iconic songs from famous girl groups and boy bands and Backstreet Boys’ own Nick Carter will be sliding into the guest judge’s seat. Audiences will also see the return of pro-dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who has been sidelined following his calf injury.
Not sure how I feel about this one – I don’t think Nick’s going to be a bad judge, per se; I just don’t know how insightful he’s really gonna be, and I can’t decide if Bonner dancing to a BSB song is more of a blessing or a curse – I’m leaning towards the latter. Eh, given Julianne’s track record so far this season, I suppose Nick filling in could probably be an improvement…
UPDATE: Well with the way the press release is worded, it’s sounding like there’s going to be FIVE judges on Monday. Yes, you read that – FIVE. Not sure if it’s a time-filling measure (doubt it), or an attempt to close up the margins with another extra set of points, but it smells fishy. I’m not convinced yet that there’ll actually be five judges (those press releases are usually boiler plate, and probably get copied & pasted from the previous week’s with just a few things added), but if there is, week 7’s elim could get interesting…
