This week we have a pretty clear division between two groups of dancers and I’m not really sure why. It’s weird. I re-watch the dances and I agree that those three (Alexa, Alek and Hayes) had the weakest dances of the night, but I’m not convinced that the difference between some at the top and those at the bottom is that broad. I don’t think any of the dances were “perfect” although I think Nick and Bindi were perfect *all things considered*. Tamar, on re-watching, was not a perfect 40 either. Meanwhile, I think that Alexa and Alek should be tied with Hayes. Of course, not giving Tamar a 40 and NOT giving Alexa and Alek 7s would have put them in much better striking distance at Tamar. Makes you wonder.
Then again – why give Andy a 40? He definitely deserved a high score…but that high? I loved that routine, for sure…but after giving him such a hard time in previous weeks, this just seems like a turnaround. I dunno, I’m kinda confused. Anyway, here’s the leaderboard and the percentages.
I’m not a Nick fan by any stretch, but I don’t get why Andy gets a 10 from CAI and Nick doesn’t – that’s weird, unless they’re setting up a redemption arch for Nick to help him to the MBT. But one point doesn’t really make a redemption arch, does it. Read more..
